Session Model Chart Problem
I am trying to chart data using the session model file from Tom Geist, the chart on the file is supposed to display Sales from the current month, with respect to the status of the sales. (Closed and Open). However, the chart is not actually displaying correctly. I am trying to implement the session model on my database, but this issue of the chart not displaying the accurate data is posing a problem. From the records in the file, the sales have more Open sales than Closed ones, also the current sales for the month of february has no closed sales. .
Please can someone assist me .. thanks
Portal exported to excel spreadsheet only contains one related field once, other fields are empty
Sorry if the title is a bit confusing, I wasn't sure how to explain it.
Basically I've got a layout that contains a portal to another table. abc0198_cpa_v002 and xyz0570_cpa_v0008 are the link to the other table (linked to the table by the first 6 characters)
the problem I have is when I export this I get the following in Excel. I was hoping that the empty fields beneath abc0198_cpa_v002 would be filled with abc0198_cpa_v002.
I can get it to work by going to the related table, searching for those records (abc0198 & xyz0570), but I will fall into the same problem when I receive multiple records that relate to the same record in the other table. IE I might receive abc0198_cpa_v002 and abc0198_cpa_v005 etc.
I hope this makes sense and thanks in advance for any help.
Export Records to Existing Excel Spreadsheets, Is it Even Possible?!
So the company I am working for just picked up a huge contract with a cruise line, where we are going to be surveying some of their hardware and other equipment, guess who has two thumbs and is the lucky son of a gun to make the database for this project? This guy!
Anyways, I can't really go into detail for legal reasons, but I can explain what I am looking for.
I'm wondering if there is a way to export the records from the database in filemaker to an existing Excel spreadsheet, and the biggest reason this is the route I'm trying to go is, I based the solution that I've build thus far on the spreadsheet deliverable that they had given us at the beginning of the bidding process. There are several fields in this deliverable that have the same name, which in Excel is no problem, but we work with Filemaker lol, so there's that. Anyway, so I have about 5-6 different types of fields that share the same name in the spreadsheet that i cannot allow in filemaker, so I cannot just set up an export to create an excel document, or else the client would most likely be very unhappy with the deliverable that they receive. So i want to know if there is any way to throw all of my records into the spreadsheet that they gave us starting at a specific cell for each of the 8 (I think it was 8) worksheets in the file. haha the more I type and am reading what i type, the more impossible I feel like this would be.
Thank you to anyone who can offer some help or insight, it is greatly appreciated!
Percentage chart Y axis scale
I'm trying to put together a couple of A4 landscape layouts which would show a total of 4 line charts on each, therefore each chart needs to be the same size.
The data being presented in each chart is percentage data which is pre-calculated, so it's easy to plot onto the chart, the problem is with the crazy spacing that FM assigns to the Y-axis.]#
I initially created the chart with min and max values of 0 and 100 respectively, but when I resized the chart, it shows (useless) values on the scale such as 16%, 26%, 42% etc.
Whatever size I choose, I want it to show 0,10,20,30 etc.
Can FM manage this?
Secondly, some data series lines look very flat when viewed on a 0-100 scale, so instead I can narrow the scale to say, 40-60 (which I know is where the majority of the data points for that series lay). Once again I'm faced with the same problem when the highest value on the chart is like, 58%.
Instead, I'd like it to perhaps go 40,45, 50, 55, 60 or whatever suits.
Can FM manage this?
I'm aware the charting function is limited, but surely you must be able to manually set a scale?
Work and Order Schedule form excel file HELP PLEASE
Hi I’m new in Filemaker, but I see lot of advantages using this solution.
I have two similar excel one is work schedule and next one is order schedule. I would like to have them in FM. My problem Is to build database which keep the visual and functionality of excels
The main part of this excel (SCHEUDLE) is connecting dates, workers and type of work to do. I would like to keep the visual form of this excel but it should work as a database. Work to do is editable list of work type. At the upfront you can see date, week day and time start of each shift, colors are pointing different line production (usually there are 2 shifts day/night and we have to lines block line and trey line also there are something like work on empting trays ) Below the main part is dictionary to translate contraction ( OL/K is operator of blocking line, W/PUSTE is forklift on empty side etc. ) and some extra info about production. I will translate last sheudle and add hole excel here.
Also I did some pivot table to calculate how often my worker work on each post. It is on GRAF
At this excel we have similar situation. (I need to delete sensitive data I only keep date from the last month MAY 2016). On the left side you have clients which are extra sorted by type of product they take (BLOCKS / BULK / TRAY ). At the upfront we have dates months, days, week number, total weekly production by product, total day production by product. Last row (IV) is total season order for each client. The main cell is fill with amount of product to do. I should be something like popup menu with order details ( amount of product, order specification, transport specification I will edit that later on )
Please help me build such SHEDULES, I can’t figure out how to start ?
P.S. SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH
