I cannot find an option to open a field, change some of it and save as a copy.
Why would I want to do this?
I have several free checkbox fields in an app with up to 750 options listed between them which we want as checkboxes as that is the best UI for our members to fill in their data at their level of technology usage
We want to create free single select fields pulling the same options from the checkbox storage column in the table for the search form as that is the best UI for our end users who are searching for filtered information on our members.
I don't want to create the same 750 options twice as there is no cut and paste version of entering options in SEBLOD fields (unless I have missed the obvious)
Why not copy the field in PHPmyadmin and then change the storage on the filter field you ask
Because I end up with exta unused columns in PHPmyadmin
I can do it this way for now and then delete the columns but am I the only one who thinks having a way to copy a field in SEBLOD would be useful
Does anyone have a suggestion or
I am new to SEBLOD so its possible I have missed something
Thanks for the assistance, both solutions seem good to me
I am new to SEBLOD so I am still getting my head around all the possibilities and have to do it as I code as a project is running behind and we had not originally planned to use a CCK until the client expanded the scope of the build
It's not that I don't want to use PHPmyadmin, it's just that I want a solution that the clients can update themselves and I don't want them in the database
The first solution will work well
If it's not stretching the friendship too much, do you have any insight on this post for me
