  3. search script

    I would like to make a script that allows me to do a search as I always do with parameters that decide on the moment and then take me to a specific format. If I go to the find mode, I enter the parameters ... how does the script continue? I should in some way keep it going with "enter" for example. Afficher la totalité du billet
  4. How do I do a timestamp comparison?

    I have a timestamp field. I want the field to contain the most recent timestamp after importing a file and updating the existing records in found set. I'm trying to do this by validating by calculation. I would think that a simple IF function would be sufficient however I can't seem to figure out how to reference the data that's being imported. I would think the IF statement would look something like this pseudocode below: IF (IMPORTED_TIMESTAMP > CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ; IMPORTED_TIMESTAMP ; CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) Any thoughts?? Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Afficher la totalité du billet

  6. Best practice for multiple accounts?

    Hi Guys, I have recently developed an email marketing database which runs in webdirect and I am now in the process of adding many users with various privilege sets. My question is what is the best way to manage the users? I have been running a script that adds the users to both files which seems to work ok but as the user list grows it's becoming harder to manage. Should I be looking at LDAP or something else? I am running FileMaker Server 16 with multiple database files on an AWS Windows 2016 server. Afficher la totalité du billet

  8. iPad Display

    I am building a solution that will be used on desktops, iOS device, and eventually with WD. The issue I have at this point is that on one layout I need to turn tool bars and menu bars off. The layout in question however, on the iPad doesn't fill, and leaves a white area at the bottom of the screen. How can I get this to "fill" the screen on the iPad? BTW, all the layouts are exactly the same size. I will send 2 screen shots taken on the iPad; the "ADMIN" layout is the one with all the white space at the bottom. The "STAFF" layout fits fine. Thanks. Afficher la totalité du billet
  9. A couple of years ago, I purchased Fmaker Pro 11 on a cd. I tried to - install it on my new macbook pro but I got an error message: - I then downloaded the file from the Filemaker site, in the assumption that my cd contained corrupted software but again I got the error messages above - I then downloaded an update to Version 14 but still, I get the error message Is there anyway I can get my legally purchased Fmaker Pro v 11 to work? Or am I doomed and do I need to purchase a subscription for $800 per year to use just one file I use Filemaker for?? All help appreciates Peter Afficher la totalité du billet
  10. What is the scripting to hide a given field in a portal if the previous row in that portal has a matching field with its same value? e.g. Portal rows include: Date field | Name field I want to be able to show the first Date, but if the next row has the same Date, hide that field until the row has a new Date. Essentially creating a heading label but via a field in a portal. Afficher la totalité du billet
  11. Portal Response Time

    I am curious - does adding a portal to a layout increase response time on the layout? What I'm wondering is - when adding/updating records in other tables from any given layout - if it is generally better to A) go to a layout that contains the records I want to add/update only when needed, then switch back to my original layout, or if it is better to B) create portals out of user view and use those to create/edit records in another table when needed. Or is the difference negligible and simply developer preference? I know there are variables that make this question impossible to answer precisely, just wondering what the general rule (if any) might be. Ex. one or two portals OK, five would create a drag. One portal with five fields would be fine, 20 fields would show some slowness. Afficher la totalité du billet
  12. FileMaker Server 15 locking up

    I’m experiencing an intermittent problem with FileMaker Server 15v3. The server will run perfectly fine for a period of time but then will suddenly lockup. I am having trouble figuring out the root cause of these lockups. The database is a simple 2 file solution: FileA which contains record data and the user interface. The second FileB contains tables for container data (stored externally). We are running FileMaker Server 15v3 (but this has happened in v1 and 2 as well). The server is running on a late 2014 MacMini (OS X 10.10.5). When the server locks up all connected users will start seeing a find progress dialog when trying to perform actions within the database (actions could be going to another layout via script, searching, exporting a container etc). I have tried disconnecting users one by one (generally there are between 35 and 45 users connected at one time) to try and narrow the cause down to a specific user but server will only disconnect about half of the users. I’ve attempted to stop the server using the launchctl command, all components of FileMaker server stop gracefully except for fmserverd. The server was left for over an hour to allow the process a chance to gracefully quit but eventually we had to force quit the process. Attempting to pause the databases has resulted in an error message Could not pause database FileB because of lock conflict(s) with 2 database user(s): Admin (); Admin() There is no account for Admin in either FileA or FileB. There are no scheduled scripts being run on server and I haven't seen any PSOS sessions in the list of users while the server has been locked up. After restarting the server the logs show that both FileA and FileB have been closed improperly and have to be verified before they’re opened. I’ve turned on the top call stats logging in the hope that I can catch what is happening when the server locks up. Has anyone experienced this issue or know of any further troubleshooting steps / fixes that I could attempt? Afficher la totalité du billet
  13. moving Old files to folder...Cloning?

    We recently upgraded from verison 5 to 16 of Filemaker. We are having issues with moving old files that we no longer want to a folder on the server. You used to be able to clone the records in the older version. We have asked so many computer people and they have NO clue. Please help me move the files we want and keep the current ones? Totally lost and can't figure it out. Thanks so much Beth Afficher la totalité du billet
