Limit the text that an append field displays If you include an append field in a view, it often takes up a lot of room because it contains so much text. If you want, you can display only the last entry in the append field. Text Right([History],"[") Within the History field, take and display all characters to the right of the rightmost [ character. Text Use this solution if your append field is set to APPEND entries. If the field is set to prepend entries instead, try: Part([History],2,"[") If your append field is set to PREPEND text, use this formula instead:

Convert dates to European format Is there any way to change the default date format in my Date Identified field to the european DD/MM/YYYY? Dates Left(NotLeft(ToText([Date Identified]),"-"),"-")& "-" & 
Case(Left(ToText([Date Identified]),2),
"10","Oct","11","Nov","12","Dec")& "-" 
& Right(ToText([Date Identified]),"-")
  Text You can't do this within a date field. You must create a formula - text type field to display dates in this format.   More on this solution...
Extract and display only the most recent entry from an append field Append fields often take up too much room in views. Use a formula field to show only the most recent entry. Text Right([comments],"[") Return the rightmost text from the comments field that follows the last occurence of the [ character. Text This solution is for an append field that appends new entries. If the field were set to prepend new entries, the solution would be: Part([comments],2,"[")   More on this solution...
Convert a value representing time in minutes into seconds When I enter a time in minutes and seconds (ie. 3.42) I need to be able to convert these to seconds. Time ToNumber(Left([Minutes], ".")) * 60 + ToNumber(Right([Minutes], ".")) The Left function will return all the text up to but not including the period. In the example, that is 3. Since it is a text value, convert it into a number using the ToNumber function and then multiply the result by 60 to get seconds.

Do the same to extract the text after the period using the Right function. Finally, we add it up to get the total seconds -- in this case it should be 3*60 + 50 = 230 seconds.
Numeric Use a text field to store the number (like 3.42) since three minutes and 42 seconds is not the same thing as 3.42 seconds.   More on this solution...

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:
