You can use the 4D formula editor with the EDIT FORMULA command. I don't use 4D Write, but I implemented the formula editor for styled text fields (used to implement a markdown editor). Editing (by double click) or inserting a formula is something like this: GET

Insert expression and Get expression seem to not be pre-implemented in the 4D v17 Write Pro area. The documentation indicates this should be managed by the developer, along with “Allowed Methods”. I think the UI for this provide access to allowed tables, fields, methods and commands. If you

In my previous 26+ years of 4D coding I did not have to concern myself with the same computer being used by different computer users (By this, I mean the user signed into the computer). Part of that was that long ago, people just didn’t sign out of the computer, and then the next person sign in
