Happy day after Thanksgiving!
I'm trying to think up a way to associate my dozen or so research notebooks with events in UFT, in such a way that I can find an event in my database which was originally entered on a numbered page in a numbered notebook. These references to notebooks should not print out in final reports. (I just want to get at referenced info in my notebooks without having to separately index the notebooks themselves.) At first I thought I could do this with flags, but while I could have a flag for each of the notebooks, I couldn't account for the changing numbered pages. Then I thought of creating a new source, Research Notebook, where I could enter the notebook number and page number as "evidence" for each referenced event, call it a research note, and only print it out for research reports, while printing out other evidence for the same event as final notes for Family Journal reports.
Would this work? Could I search the database this way? I've been struggling with this for a while--I keep thinking it should be doable, but I can't seem to get it right. I would appreciate any specific instructions you good UTF'rs care to offer!
