  1. Thank you very much. This would be a handoff of information between a police server and a fire server which happen to be separate. The user account for the handoff would only be able to access the given fields and nothing else so I guess it's ok to hard-code the credentials. I'll research how to open a fmp file using the url script step and put the credentials in the url and see how that works. If I get into trouble I'll maybe reach out to see what I am doing wrong. Thanks, Chris
  2. Hello, I have been successful in getting the script to open the other file and create a record. What I didn't think of is is it possible to specify an account username and password for it to login to the other file under? It was working great for me because I have the same user account and password for both the databases I was working with. I would prefer not to Login as a Guest since that would kill my security privileges I believe. Anyone know if it is possible to specify a user account and password when using an open file script step? Thanks very much!. Chris
  3. Thank you both for all your help. It was the Java issue. I followed the link you sent, thank you, and restarted the server and everything is working great. Thank you Chris
  4. Thank you Agnes and Ryan!. I don't think I downloaded java 6, i think it was a different version. I will work on that now. The email plugin has been working great both locally in the file and also on the shared server that I was on. The people over at Point In Space were awesome in getting things up and running on the shared server. Now that I am on a dedicated server I am trying to do it myself. I think the register script step is definitely in the several scripts that run on the schedule so I don't think that is an issue here. I'll get back to everyone shortly. Thanks Chris
  5. Thank you very much for your input. I'll try that new calculation for when a member goes 'inactive'. As for the leave of absence. Maybe I should just build into the Personnel Records table maybe 5 Start and 5 End dates for a person to take a leave of absence. I know it isn't very clean and neat but I could add up the days of leave and then subtract them from the date of hire calculation. Here is the calculation field I have been using so far and how it is displayed based on the Get Current Date calculation. Thanks, Chris
  6. Hello. I have a few databases for fire departments and in a Personnel Table I have a "Date of Hire" field. I then uses a calculation to get their Years of service and display it as Years, Months, Days. My question is: some members take a leave of absence or go inactive. I'm not sure how to approach subtracting a leave of absence start and end date or set a field with a date they they went inactive and then their Years of service would calculate up until that date and not the current date. Thank you for your time. Chris. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Hello, I just yesterday started with a host company for a dedicated server for a few databases I host for some fire departments. I got a downgrade to Server so the departments with FMP12 can still connect. I moved over one database onto the new server that was previously on a shared server host and successfully was using the 360 Works email plugin to retrieve fire call data from an email account. Forgive me but I have not setup a server from scratch before but I have put the 360 works email plugin in the extensions folder on the server and also downloaded and installed Java. In the admin console I see the server sees the plugin but it says Not Loaded under Plug-In Name (not sure if that is normal). With the database open on my FMP client machine I try to run the script which checks for emails and I don't see it working. I believe the registration details for my plugin license are at the beginning of the script that I tried to run. Also when I try to setup a schedule to run this script every 2 Minutes it won't let me create the schedule saying there are no available scrips for the given user account that I am trying to assign within the schedule. After it gives me the message that no scripts are available the FMSE fails and quits. Does any of this ring any bells as to what the issue is? Thank you for your time.
  8. Cancel That. I had a dumb moment and forgot the ( & ) symbols in the calculation for the script parameter. Thank you. Chris
  9. Hi, I tried a few things and I almost got it working, minus the container thing. The township script is triggering the new record script in the Mutual Aid database. The Mutual Aid Database is seeing the scrip parameter that I set but it isn't setting the fields with the values from the Township Database, it is setting the filed with what is actually typed in the scrip parameter calculation. How do I get the value in the fields to become the values in the scrip parameter? Thank You!. Chris
  10. Thank you very much. I'm going to try that now. One thing I forgot, and was hoping I would have the ability to pass a pdf in a container field in the Township DB into a container field in the Mutual Aid DB. Can I do that via a scrip parameter? Thanks, Chris
  11. Hi, I have searched everywhere and could not find something I could apply to do what I am looking for. I have a Fire Dept database that I manage, they have a table of "Event Reports" for each call. Within our Fire Departments we have 14 towns that are part of a Mutual Aid Group which has a radio desk that manages large, multi resource incidents. I would like to develop a database to help them manage the resources at the incidents since a handful of departments are already using the database solution I host for them on a server. I would like to create a script that copies the values in about 6 fields on an Event Report from a townships database and have a new record created in the Mutual Aid database and have those 6 values set into their respective fields? I understand the set variable and set field steps but spanning those from one file to another is not something I have done before. Any help would be really appreciated. Town Database the data is coming from. Event Report:Time Event Report:Type of Event Event Report:Full Address Event Report:Township Evnet Report:I.C.S. Officer Mutual Aid Database the data is going to. Incidents:Township Incidents:Address Incidents:TimeStart Incidents:EventType Incidents:CommandOfficer
  12. Comment, Thank you so much, that worked perfectly!! I really appreciate it. Chris.
  13. Hello, Thank you very much for the fast reply. I was very new to Filemaker when I made the original field names. I have since renamed the address field to "AddressOld" The table is "PrePlan" 1000 Wyckoff Avenue 130 Storms Drive 131 Fardale Avenue 15 Whitney Road 274 Campgaw Road 6000 Rio Vista Drive 1 GREAT HALL ROAD We have 5 records that have a ( - ) in the address, like this. I can do these manually if needed. 1-21 FRANKLIN TURNPIKE Thank you!. Chris
  14. Hello, I started a database for a volunteer fire department back in 2012 and they have been storing preplan data for individual addresses since they started using a field "Address/Location". They are now going to align themselves with the format that the Police department is currently using which has separates fields for the address number and the address street. I have created two fields "AddressNumber" and "AddressStreet" and thing a replace field contents step is what I want with a calculation to pull the relevant data into the new field. I'm having trouble with the calculations to pull just the address number into the first field and just the address street into the second field. There is no common separator like a ( - ) or anything that separates the address number and the street name. The only thing is a "Space" Anyone have a solution to do this. They have almost 10,000 address records to doing it manually isn't my favorite option. Thank you in advance for your time. Chris
  15. Thanks everyone. Ralph, I installed all the items you mentioned and made the relationships. Everything is working well with it auto generating the incremental incident number however, sometime pretty regularly it will skip a number. Any ideas what might case that? Thanks Chris
