tNewComment := @Prompt([ OkCancelEdit]; "Comments"; "Please enter your comments:"; ""); FIELD Comments := @If(Comments = ""; tNewComment; Comments : tNewComment);
If you would like to include the date, time and the user name with each comment, you can use this version of the formula:
tUserAndDate := @Text(@Now) + " " + @Name([CN]; @UserName) + ": "; tNewComment := tUserAndDate + @Prompt ([OkCancelEdit]; "Comments"; "Please enter your comments:"; ""); FIELD Comments := @If(Comments = ""; tNewComment; Comments : tNewComment);
For either of these to work, you will need to create a multi-valued Text field named Comments. Make it a computed field with Comments as the value. Set it to display separate values with New Line.
