    • Aggregate Charting Difficulties
      Hello,

      I'm having a problem that I've been unable to wrap my head around. I have a database that records defect data by trial number. For example, Trial 1 may include 6 samples that I'm inspecting. Currently, I have a chart layout that I can chart the defects of individual trial against another individual trial. This layout has charts that compare the specific defects recorded. Some of the trials share project names (for example Trial 1, Trial 2, and Trial 3 are part of the New Additive project. What I'd like to be able to do is to chart the combined defect data for one project against another project as selected by the user. I'd like the user to be able to choose the projects they'd like to analyze via a drop-down field and the charts would be generated below. As I said, I had no problem creating the charts for one individual trial against another trial, but I'm not having success today. Perhaps because it's Monday. Any help would be appreciated.
    • Mirrorsync with Oracle and SQL Server: JDBC setup?
      We are trying to use MirrorSync 1) for two way synchronization of FileMaker tables with tables in Oracle server, 2) for one way synchronization from a view in SQL Server to a table in FileMaker. Trouble is, MirrorSync will not connect by JDBC to either Oracle or SQL Server. We are beginners in JDBC, and we sorely miss documentation for the topic: What conditions have to be met by Oracle and by SQL Server for MirrorSync to be able to connect? We are trying what we believe is the correct connect string(s) towards Oracle. SQL Server is set up to use Windows authentication (that is, accepting a login based on AD entities). What documentation or other advice is available?   Update: We may seem to succeed with Oracle now. But SQL Server is still unsolved. The article https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms378428%28v=sql.110%29.aspx shows syntax of connection URLs even for Windows integrated authentication - but to no use, as this field is not open for editing in the MirrorSync configuration dialogue...
    • Number Notation
      Please note that contrary to the suggestion made by @Steve Martino, I am not rounding up, but to the nearest boundary. For example, 949 is rounded down to "900", while 950 will be rounded up to "1K" - keeping with the most common rounding method of "round half up".
    • Compare and combine price and description records
      Another option you might want to consider is to use a single table having fields for both types of files - except ITEM # and Product ID would be unified into a single field, let's call it CombinedID. Here you would always import using the "update matching records" method: when importing from an ITEMS file, you would match ITEM # to CombinedID;  when importing from the other type, you would match Product ID to CombinedID. This way, any matching pairs would be automatically combined into a single record. Note that this assumes any subsequent imports are supposed to overwrite existing records with the same ID.
    • Number Notation
      Thank you so much for your help. Just what I was looking for. Originally I was just
      looking for the notation for any number that fell into that range but your suggestion
      of rounding up makes for a much better result for what I was trying to accomplish. Thanks again
      Anthony
