4. Select “Date Field” and click the “create” button.

 

 

5. Name the field so it describes the text item you want to turn on or off. Below we have used “First Aid”.  Click ‘OK’ to add the field Click ok to the default field length (128).  Note: If this text is quite long you can abbreviate this name now as the actual text that appears on the card is in a set in step 7.  

 

 

6. Your Database will need to close and re-open, click ‘OK’.
