Hello, I'm trying to build a form I've never done before. Basically I want to combine a stacked canvas (tabular) with a content canvas. I haven't been able to do this because once I call the DataBlock wizard I am asked to choose if my canvas should be a stacked or content canvas. I have created another datablock but I'm not sure how to add it to the currently existing canvas.
Also, the records on the stacked (tabular) and content canvas are linked so that pressing the save button will save everything at once.

Say I have a database table xx_gross with columns period, product, total_volume, market_code. And I want period and product to be on the content canvas while total_volume and market_code are on the stacked (tabular) canvas. How can I create this form and also ensure that saving is done properly?

Use only one block, have a main canvas and a stacked canvas, make the stacked canvas narrow and make its 'x' origin about 300. Place a couple of items on the main canvas with 'x' less than 200, now place a couple of items on the stacked canvas. Both canvases should be visible (set the stacked canvas 'Raise on Entry' to 'Yes') and you should see the various items. Remember that if you navigate to an item 'under' the stacked canvas, it will 'disappear'.
