I might be missing the point (why else would people call brain dead) but
WHY are you breaking the date down into 4 parts? Is it just to display the
info? If that is the case, why not use 1 date field, then set it's display
values to custom, and define what you want to see (year, month, day, date)
That brings you down to one field for each date, rather than 4.
As for an easy way to do the 360+ thing, I must not understand what you
are doing, it would seem that each "day" would be a record (row? as you
called it). If you want 1 or 360, or 5,000, you can quickly replicate them
via a script (make a loop that does a new record and exits after a "key"
number is hit, play with it, you'll understand)
Again, I think I am missing the big picture of what you are doing, but I
hope I helped at least a little. Or maybe I just wasted more time at work
It's not my god damn planet monkey boy!
