I'm trying to get multiple choice quiz questions into a FileMaker database. The information is in a plain text file. Question and options are simply separated by returns:
Where in the cell is the genome located?
Mostly in the cytosol.
Mostly in the mitochondria.
[X] Mostly in the nucleus.
Stored in the membrane.
Stored in RNA.
Each question has 5 options, one of which is correct [X]. There's an empty line between questions.
What's a good approach to get this into a FileMaker database with separate fields for the questions, the options, and the correct solution?
All the best

i would appreciate if someone could tell me where i went wrong why my pdf is not saving and if this is the method to save the pdf to a container
I have come across this technique severally on this forum, but I can't figure out how this really works. Right now I am faced with a situation that requires similar technique and I can't seem to get it work.
I have Table A and Table B.
1. I want to script an import Process that will first export all records in Table A into Table B (kinda A Clone Copy of Table A) Thats just my basic objective
2. Then from there, I would want to be able to do similar Process but this time, I will only update the records in Table B with that of Table A using a match field.
3. I will also love to perform the process based on a found count. ie after performing a find of specific records
I think If I can be guided on achieving NO. 1, then I can similarly script the others..
We have a database in Go 14 and users need to Import records from Filemaker Server 14, to Filemaker Go.
And it runs very good with all Users that have:
Ipad Air 2 and Ipad Pro
Import time: 8 to 9 Minutes
But all the users that have:
Ipad 3rd and Ipad 4rd Generation
Import time: + 1Hour
Both using the same wireless,
Is there any way I can identify in a script what Ipad Model the user has ?
I have a problem with server side import of records. I have a simple script which just does an import of a textile (with tab delimiters):
Set Variable [$FileList; Value: "filewin://server/folder/1795739.txt"]
Go to Layout ["files" (files)]
Import Records [No dialog; "$FileList"; Add; UTF-8]
When I run it client side, everything is fine. When I run it server side with Perform Script on Server I'm getting an error:
The previous script step, "Perform Script on Server", could not be completed because of an error....
If I run Get ( LastError), I get error code 100 (File is missing)
I have tried many different file locations for the textile. Network path, Local path (on the FM server) and Relative path (from where the database is placed on FM server).
I have tried placing the file in the FM server Databases and Documents folder AND the User Documents folder:
filewin:/C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Documents/1795739.txt
filewin:/C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/1795739.txt
Every time I get error 100. What am I doing wrong??
FileMaker server is v14 on Windows Server 2008 and the client is running on Windows 7.
