Subject: How to Add Text to a Text field Using Action Button
Feedback Type: Question
Product Area: Notes 8 Client
Technical Area: Application development
Platform: ALL
Release: All
Reproducible: Not applicable

Hi Forum Users,

I'm sure this is a simple one...

I have two fields, one called "Comment" and the other "Archive" I have a radio button that enters the current date and user name in the "Comment" field. What I need help with is how to have the Action Button first take any existing "Comment" text and add it to the beginning of the "Archive" field followed by a NewLine. I tried "FIELD :=" But it overwrites the existing data in "Archive".

I hope this is clear... any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks, Paul
