Rookie Question – List of 3 fields on custom form.

Rookie here, trying to learn NetSuite – should be an easy question.

I have a custom customer form where I’m adding data in a subtab.  Scalar fields are trivial, but I need to record multiple values, where each value has multiple sub-parts.  I can’t seem to find any examples or documentation on how to do this.

Basically, I need 0 or more entries, where each entry has a mandatory selection of an Age-Range list, a mandatory selection of a Gender list, and an entry of a Notes text field.  Order is irrelevant.

Can anyone guide me to a solution to this?  As a newbie, I’m really struggling to find effective how-to documentation in NetSuite’s help pages.

Thanks for any advice!!

You could use a new Custom Record to store a set of information.
It is the equivalent of adding a new table to a database.

Example below:

I had tried using records earlier – but missed a few of the steps in your example.    I was able to follow your example and create a dummy record in the sandbox with no issues at all.   I think this is going to completely solve my problem.

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, this is extremely helpful and educational!
