Multi pdf for FM5 on windows 7/64 Bit

1 post in this topic

Hello All!

I have a hugh problem.

Today it works fine on my XP SP3 but the day I have to change computer I have to change platform from XP to 7 or 8.

I have a huge number of registers working together so its no option to migrate those to FP7 format or re-write for FP7 as it would take to long time.

 

Today I work with Shubeck Pdf plug-in which combine several pdfs within my script and put out an email with the pdf as attachment.

It works great with ghostscript version 8.5.

 

I have borrough a computer with Windows 7/64 Bit for testing purposes.

I found ghostscript 9.01 for windows 7/32 and installed it. Seems to be OK.

I then installed Schubeck plug-in but under installation I got an Error-messeage with a lot of 0 and 705 at the end and it tells me that it couldnt found the printer drivers (which must be the ghostscript?).

 

With a lot of work I can re-write my pdf-printing scripts if some other multi page pdf-printer for FM5 is avaible and works on W7/64.

 

I hope some of you have some ideas which can help me and maybe have a plugin to sell.

    • Weird date format
      By stefangs
      Hi all,
      I've recently added FM10 to my MacBook Pro that runs on Mavericks. When trying to format a date field, I get the box in the attached screen shot. The date field on the layout looks accordingly, so it's not just a dialog box display problem. Any idea what's going on here?
      Thanks,
      Stefan

    • FM9 incompatible step in calculation?
      By Justin Close
      I was doing a bit of work for a client who is running FM9 clients, connecting to a file hosted on an FM11 server.  I don't have FM9, so was doing development on FM11.  I thought I had checked out that everything was compatible, but I somehow generated a calculation that doesn't evaluate on 9, but does on 11.  The components of the calculations and custom functions used all appear to be innocuous...  I  am hoping someone here knows what I tripped up on.
      Here's the field calculation, and the 2 custom function definitions that it uses.  The entire point of this calculation is to take a mish-mash text field that they have and make it sort nicely.  For this bit I added, I'm just concerning myself with sorting some suffix numbers that occur between parentheses, e.g. 12345(A-1).
       
      Field calculation definition: Let ( [ _fileNum = Files::File Number ; //Position of 1st open/close parens, and then extract the text between them: _sParen = Position ( _fileNum ; "(" ; 1 ; 1 ) + 1; _eParen = Position ( _fileNum ; ")" ; 1 ; 1 ) ; _suffix = Middle ( _fileNum ; _sParen ; _eParen - _sParen) ; //Count the leading digits before any non-digit character, e.g. an alpha, or dash or space, etc. _count = CountPrefixDigits ( _suffix ; 0 ) ; //Remove extraneous characters (dash, space): _suffix = Substitute ( _suffix; ["-";""]; [" " ; ""] ) ; //Pad out the string to min 5 characters (helps 75-A sort next to 75): _suffix = _suffix & Left ( "!!!!!" ; 5 - Length (_suffix) ); //Reverse the character sequence (so the Code() call works out better): _suffix = ReverseString ( _suffix ) ]; _count & Code ( _suffix ) //prepend the digit count, but don't encode that count, just the rest of it ) -------------------- 'CountPrefixDigits ( aString ; aCounter )' custom function: If ( IsEmpty ( GetAsNumber ( Left ( aString ; 1 ) ) ) ; aCounter ; CountPrefixDigits ( Right ( aString ; Length ( aString) - 1 ) ; aCounter + 1 ) ) -------------------- 'ReverseString (aString)' custom function: If ( Length ( aString ) > 0 ; ReverseString ( Right ( aString ; Length ( aString ) - 1 ) ) & Left ( aString ; 1 ) ; Left ( aString ; 1 ) )  
      Thanks,

    • Filemaker 6 for Mac issue.
      By Tumma K
      Hello, All!

      I am an aspiring developer for Filemaker. The company I work with is stuck in the past working off of Filemaker Pro 4.1

      I was given the task of bringing us up to Filemaker Pro/Server 13. So far my conversion prototypes are successful but we recently had a layout issue that can only be fixed in versions 3-6 (as the file is an .fp3) I work off of a macbook while our network is all Windows 7. In order for me to repair the layouts without tampering our active database, I decided the best option is to repair a copy of our solutions off the network. Unfortunately, when I go to download the trial version of Filemaker Pro 6 off of the respected website, the file is corrupt! I've tried multiple times, with different extraction apps and in different directories.

      My question is;

      Does anyone know a place where I could obtain version 6 (or better yet, 4.0) for an OSX computer? I've looked everywhere!
       
      Thank you for your time,
      Tumma K.
