Good evening everyone.
I have a form and a text field.
I would like that when opening this form this field already appeared filled with the word "test". So that saving this information was recorded in the table field.
Some way?

Hang on. If the value "test" is ALWAYS going to be added to this field via this control, then it's probably not very useful is it?

Or can it be changed by the user to something other than "test" during data entry of a new record?

I would actually make this the Default value for this field in the table, not in the form.

Good Morning.
I decided by inserting the text in the property "default value" of the field.

This need is for an adaptation to a specific need to have a standard form with a difference in a small ID that would be "modified" using it.
thank you all.
