  1. Is there a way to select records in a table that are not linked to any other table

    I have a table of people who completed volunteer applications and a table of various volunteer jobs and a many to many link to link the volunteers to the activities they actually performed. That is working fine. I want to find all the people on the table of people who completed a volunteer application who have never volunteered at all. Is there a way to do that?

  8. limited role can't edit table even though all maximum permissions are set.

    As you can see in the attached screen shots, I can't edit the asset and member drop down menus to create a new activity record. The checkout is a view of the activity table which is a child of both the member and the asset table. For limited role I have all settings to the maximum allowed permissions. It is only the assets and members drop down lists that don't show up.

    Thanks!

  9. How do I limit the number of records that show up by rank?

    I would like to have a top 10 list of items checked out in a asset tracking app. Right now I am trying to use the count field as a basis for this filter, but because the list constantly changes, I can't filter by a set number. it needs to be highest to lowest and only show 10 records. Anyway to do this.

  15. How do I change a table name?

    There seem to be two opportunities for adding a table. One route allows you to immediately name it, the second route lets you add a table but with no way to give 'new table' a meaningful name. Finding the first route seemed rather serendipitous and I can't find my way back to it!
