  2. Your question is rather confusing, esp. the part about "button script trigger". If you have a button defined to run a script, then no script trigger is necessary. Make your script do something like: If [ Details::Type = "Meeting" ] Go to Layout [ "Meeting" ] Else If [ Details::Type = "Interview" ] Go to Layout [ "Interview" ] Else If [ Details::Type = "Incident" ] Go to Layout [ "Incident" ] # add more as necessary End If
  3. Hello All, We have 6 layouts based on the type of Details being entered (ie, meeting, interview, incident report form). We created a value list for each type of Detail. From a list view of all Detail records, we would like to set the Detail ID field with a button script trigger that takes the user to the appropriate layout based on the Detail value list selection. Is this possible?

  6. Thank you so much for the help, this worked. I guess I thought I understood Table Occurrences, but obviously I don't. Thanks, -J
  7. FileMaker inc just released updates for version 15 for FileMaker Pro Client, Advanced and Go.
  8. Sounds like you'd want to start with a table for items, and a related table for expenses. The Category field could go in either table, or both -- presumably with different values, e.g. banjo category might be "twangy things" and its expenses might have categories like, "parts," "lessons," "accessories," etc.
  9. I am with a Los Angeles based television production company that is looking to hire someone to help us develop an asset/inventory tracking system using Filemaker. Below are a few of the features we would like to include. Inventory each item (with its own tracking #) To be used for tracking computer, camera, furniture, media, appliances, etc Check items in and out. Assign a work number to each item at time of check out. Generate inventory reports. Date of availability for each item (automated reminders) Ability to function with barcodes & barcode scanner Tracking sign in/out and maintenance histories We are located in Los Angeles, CA, but open to someone working remotely for design and implementation. This would be a project based job. The ideal candidate has extensive experience creating/developing applications using Filemaker Pro. Please forward your resume to Best, Angelica
  10. I did not realize that... I will try that and see how that works. Thank you.
  11. A relationship using the X relational operator does not need a matching key value. Just use any two fields as the matchfields. -- P.S. What makes you think Filemaker is not a "true relational database"?
  12. Thanks for the quick reply. Not sure how I would do that since they do not share a key. The relationship between Staff and workshop is all thru the WorkshopStaff table. I have been working with true relational databases for a long time, so I may be missing something here in FMP.
  13. I don't know, because I don't understand the situation. There are numerous options here, depending on what exactly you're tracking and - no less importantly - for what purposes. These questions cannot be sidestepped.
  14. Why don't you relate the StaffList TO directly to Workshops?
  15. Hello, I am back to working in FMP after a multi-year hiatus, and I am rusty and am currently stuck. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I hope I am posting in the right topic. I am building a solution where we have a number of many-to-many relationships that are being used via portals. This is the issue that I am having that I am stumped on. In this instance I have the following db graph: Workshops <--=--> WorkshopStaff <--=--> Staff Each workshops may have multiple Staff and Staff may participate in Multiple workshops On the Workshops layout I have a portal to WorkshopsStaff In order to add Staff to the Workshop I have a button that brings up a popover with a portal that lists all Staff from which to select. I can select a Staff Member and they get added to the WorkshopStaff table. This popover was more or less modeled on the "invoices" starter solution The way I am displaying the portal inside the popover is via a table occurrence like this: Staff <--X--> StaffList (Cartesian relationship) My issue is that the portal in the popover (the result of the cartesian relationship) displays and works as intended as long as I have one related entry in the WorkshopClient table. But for a new Workshop for which I don't yet have any entries in the WorkshopClient table the portal in my popover comes up empty. What I am doing wrong or is there a better way to populate the list from which to select staff? Thanks a bunch. -J
  16. This message is usually caused by a mistake in the path. What is the exact file path?
  17. FM won’t create a pdf file. When I use File/Save records as/pdf I get the error message “File could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk” I have no trouble creating files from other apps and the disk has many GB of storage available. Further, the disk is not locked. I try different file names, but get the same error.
  18. Do you have documents that need to be shared on multiple platforms? Learn how to integrate FileMaker with SharePoint via Microsoft Graph API. Includes a free sample file and demo! Integrating FileMaker and SharePoint Using Microsoft Graph David Happersberger
  19. Sorry, I realise my answer was a bit 'brief', trying to be helpful in a hurry! If you google 'Filemaker Xero Examples' there is loads of content posted by the community. You could try the chargeable plugin by Foundation Data at if you want some pre-built functionality (rather than doing it yourself with the API). Or there are various YouTube videos with examples, you could look at It's been done many times before, so there are lots of examples and resources. Good luck!
  20. By that you are probably asking a different question which is easily answered. The only things in the example file which would be not valid are where a method used is deprecated in a later Java version. The bigger issues we face is where a jar library has been updated to include new methods but is complied under Java 1.7 or 1.8. And this affects Mac users
  21. Appreciate your help Lee, for some reason I entered my operating system completely wrong. Could it be because I'm running FMP 13 with FM Go 15?
  22. Yep, you are right, i didn't checked it properly. ScriptMaster is running Java 1.6.0_65 (64 bit) at my Mac OSX 10.11.6. I somehow assumed that it would be the 32-bit Version. Whatever, I'm interested to know if there is maybe an overview of the parts of the ScriptMaster 4.42 which are currently not compatible with Java 1.8? Since all the ScriptMaster Plugins (and Plugins that have been created by ScriptMaster) share the same JavaVM, I thought it would be somehow easy to make a C++ Plugin for FileMaker which is loading a Java 1.8 VM. I spend a few hours to make a Plugin and at the moment it seems to work quiet well. As long as my native FileMaker Plugin gets loaded before the first ScriptMaster Plugin, all of the ScriptMaster Plugins will use Java 1.8 (In my case Java 1.8.0_111). I didn't had the time to make some tests on different MacOS Systems (especially not on a system with a missing Java 1.6) but at the moment it looks quite good. All the standard "ScriptMaster Modules" seems to work. Expect for modules that use some GUI Dialogs (I needed to set the Java argument java.awt.headless=true for my Plugin to run properly). But actually I don't have a need for Java GUIs and maybe there is even a way to fix this issue. regards Julian
  23. I will try this, but would this affect FM Go on the ipad too?
  24. I think this is related to your system as I stated in your other post. I would also check to see if this meets the requirement of your Bar Code software/plugin.
  25. Hi canton and welcome to the FM Forums, System requirements System Requirements for FileMaker Pro 15 and FileMaker Pro 15 Advanced Please note that OS X Mavericks 10.9 is no longer supported. Please update your operating system before upgrading to FileMaker Pro 15. Could the be the problem? Lee
  26. I'm having issues with FM Go 15 crashing when I try to enter data into a portal. It closes FM Go and does not save any data that has been entered that day. There is no pattern to it and sometimes it does not do it at all. I've tried deleting the app and reloading as well recreating my FM Go file, but still no luck. Has anyone had similar issues?
