  2. Hi everyone. I am trying to export data from excel which is in form of questionnaire to new file in Filemaker. I made similar layout in Filemaker with all questions. I wrote script Import records(source: "export file") Go to record/ request page[first] . This script is importing data to the new filemaker file but its not in sequence. My excel sheet has 10 questions with their question no. defined. But in layout i wrote every questions. While importing, i am getting all data in only one row. that is 10 data from excel in 10 records in filemaker but in same single row. whereas I want to import data according to the questions no. I have attached imges for reference if my question is confusing. Here in image we can see that the value of excel sheet is going to only one row in filemaker unlike it should be imported to different rows. Thanks,
  3. FM 14 Server and Scale HC3 Architecture

    So, I have more information.

The VMWare hardware is 6 years older than the SCALE hardware. I believe that the problem lies with possibly a generally poorer hardware. I base this on the Network, Disk, and Remote Call (cpu/memory) performance. Going back is not really an option, but I can move to actual hardware although I prefer VMs for their ease of management. Any thoughts?
  4. Sync failed/Aborted Error

    A good question - that I hope Jesse can weigh in on.
  5. Sync failed/Aborted Error

    Why don't we get the same error with FM GO 13 and 14 ? just 15 and 16 and on the same internet connection.
  6. San Diego, CA - June 27, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of Vessel Service Solutions (VSS) version This vertical market solution was designed for the marine assistance industry and operates as a virtual command center to manage vessel assistance orders. VSS version now features compatibility with QuickBooks Online via the FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in. What is VSS? VSS utilizes FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go to allow BoatU.S. captains to fully digitalize the tow order process from beginning to end. As soon as distress calls are received, any employee has the ability to send mobile orders from the office or an iOS device to themselves or other in-field captains. The captain receives the order on an iPad and, after assisting the boater, updates and submits the order back to dispatch for final processing. "We're excited that VSS has shown such success in the industry and we're dedicated to continuing to improve upon the solution and expand its capability and compatibility. We're committed to providing a product that is equipped to help our clients succeed and offer the ability for further customizations." Marc Larochelle, CEO, Productive Computing, Inc. VSS QuickBooks Functionality VSS is designed to connect with a client's QuickBooks Desktop or Online file. The solution pulls a list of items from QuickBooks that captains can use to fill out orders for services rendered. Once reviewed, cases can be pushed to a client's QuickBooks file as invoices either one at a time or in batches. When payments are applied in QuickBooks, information about remaining balances and paid on dates can be pulled into VSS. The solution includes list views and visual icons to indicate a case's status in QuickBooks Desktop or Online. For more information on this solution, visit www.vesselservicesolutions.com.

  7. <Function Missing>

    No worries, it's a pretty common mistake. Please let us know if you run into anything else!
  8. Sync failed/Aborted Error

    Speed is not the issue. Ping time is a rough, but fairly effective metric of 'reachability' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ping_(networking_utility)
  9. <Function Missing>

    Thanks for the information. I actually had a colleague point me in the right direction. I failed to understand that in order to use a client, I had to have the plugin installed locally. It makes total sense, I would have known this if I was more familiar with FM Plugins.
  10. Sync failed/Aborted Error

    Not data connection issue. We don't get the error with FM GO 13 and the connection fast, we are on high speed wifi.
  11. Sync failed/Aborted Error

    Probably a "Connection disruption". Fairly standard. We get this ~25% of the time. Most clients are in an area with just 'ok' connectivity. Good enough for voice, data not so much. We have found a VPN connection helps by keeping the connection 'alive'. hth
  12. Hello, We are in the process of updating our FileMakerGo on the iPads from 13 to 16 but we are running into an issue with the sync. We are currently running MirrorSync 2.3 but will eventually upgrade to 3. Meanwhile, we need to get FMGO 15 or 16 work with our current MirrorSync. The sync error doens't always show, sometimes it syncs and sometimes it doesn't. Any ideas? Thanks
  13. It does install Java, just as a runtime... Are you talking about Mac or Win??
  14. Conditional Value List Issues

    Hi Lee Thanks for the link, much appreciated. I cannot attach the actual project as it is for work, but I dragged out the potion I am having issues with into a smaller file and have attached it. RMA_Test_Contact.fmp12
  15. I am building a medical database for use in webdirect For the past 3 versions of filemaker server (13,14,15), I have encountered the same problem When loading the styles to the browser, 95% of the time the design appears as normal. However, every now again certain pages load without the style, leaving a white screen with the text only My file is currently being hosted on filemaker server 15, but I think I will upgrade shortly to 16 I have been using a supported theme which I have adjusted to suit my needs it's very frustrating because it is preventing me from presenting the software outside the office, as I don't want this to happen during a presentation Has anyone experienced similar problems, and if so, have you managed to find a solution?
  16. Error 201

    I have the following error when syncing from ipad: inser operation for table.... nodId '54CAOBFC-6863-4181-93FB-BB74F722B1D4'. [FileMaker][FileMaker JDBC] (201): Cannot modify field.
  17. since there is no need for SM5.x to install java: does the build in java support Java Unlimited Juristication Policy for 256bit encryption?

  19. Your calculation is a little awkward because it checks the same thing twice, but other than that it should work. Of course, any calculation that uses Get ( CurrentTime ) must be unstored. This may add unnecessary burden on reporting. Consider keeping the calculation stored, e.g. as = If ( Time Out ; Time Out - Time In ) and displaying the alternative calculation as a placeholder.
  20. Table with many fields or table with generic field?

    It's complicated. Because we are a public interest law firm, many of our clients don't pay any fee. The point of the software is to let clients determine if they can file themselves (and then produce the necessary forms) or if they require assistance from us. The lawyers here are uncomfortable (from a liability and legal ethics standpoint) with storing "non-client" data on a server that we own or control. So, this is the compromise solution.
  21. Internet plug-in adds new script steps and online help for FileMaker Pro 16. Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, June 26, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi URL Plug-in 5.0 for FileMaker Pro 16. What is Troi URL Plug-in? Troi URL Plug-in can help you fill in forms on the Internet, all from FileMaker Pro. It also retrieves data or images from web sites. - use the POST command to fill in a web form and retrieve the result directly in FileMaker Pro - use the GET command to retrieve data - use the PUT command to to transfer files or upload data to web servers - use the DELETE command to delete items on web servers - use a secure connection (HTTPS) using SSL - get access to password protected web pages, including those that require OAuth authorization - get JPEG, PNG and GIF images directly into a container field - specify cookies and proxy server settings - send tweets to Twitter with ease! What is new in version 5.0? We rewrote Troi URL Plug-in for FileMaker 16 and it now has the following new functionality: - Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 16. - Added new functionality to the TURL_Get function. When getting images, like jpegs the name of the image (like for example img_4321.jpg) is now also added to the container data. - Fixed a problem with creating the correct OAuth signature for parameters in the TURL_SendAuthorizedRequest function. - Fixed a problem with the TURL_SendAuthorizedRequest function for urls that contain extra parameters (after a question mark: like www.example.com?page=1). - Made various minor changes to the example files to better work with FileMaker Pro 16. - Updated the code by adding improved namespace handling to make the plug-in more robust. Extra features when running FileMaker Pro 16 Version 5.0 adds the following new features when running in FileMaker 16: - The URL Plug-in adds multiple script steps when running in FileMaker Pro 16. You can select these script steps in the script steps pane in Script Workspace, or you can begin typing the script step name, then choose the script step from the list that appears. The script steps significantly expand the possible actions you can perform with FileMaker Pro. Only steps that perform an action have been added as a script step. Functions that just return information (like for example TURL_GetLastHTTPStatusCode) are only available as an external function. The following seven script steps are added: - Delete URL - Get URL - Post URL - Put URL - Reinitialize URL Plug-in - Send Authorization PIN URL - Send Authorized Request URL - Added new scripts to several example files, which demonstrate how to use the new external script steps of FileMaker Pro 16. The examples check if FileMaker Pro 16 is running and will select these new scripts. - Added support for online help for the functions and script steps of the plug-in. You can now easily get online help from the Troi website, by clicking the Help button (the small question mark button) next to the function description in the functions pane or the script step description in the script steps pane. Apart from these additions we fixed several bugs and made various further improvements. More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi URL Plug-in 5.0 can be found at: https://www.troi.com/products/urlplugin/ Pricing & Availability A fully functional demo version of Troi URL Plug-in 5.0 is available for downloading at: https://www.troi.com/products/urlplugin/ Licenses cost US$ 79 per user.

  23. Can you change parts of text colour in a portal in a report

    Hi Steve, There would be no benefit to others by posting this file. The original file was written by a develop who has sense past away, Sarah was only tweaking it for her use. All we did was changed a few calculations, added a couple of Custom Functions from Brian Dunning's site having to do with coloring text, and checked the box for sorting a relationship. In addition, Sarah worked out several things on her own. Lee
  24. Hi All I am fairly new to FIlemaker and am working on a project that I want to have a few conditional value drop down lists for product entry. I want to have the ability to enter in multiple line items and have copied the fields to make up 5 lines. The issue I am having is that the drop-down menu selections populate all of the line items when something is selected. For example, if I select something in the first field, it selects the same section on all 5 lines I feel like I am missing something simple but have been banging my head on this for a while and I am not getting anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.
