  1. Provide a prominent sort button might be enough. I'm not sure this will work in Go but control your users menu options and force your users to use a scripted sort.
  2. Thanks Rwoods. Any plugin that you know of?
  3. Hi does anyone know of a tutorial or other instructions for connecting to Xero (cloud finance software)
  4. The other alternative is to have a related receipts table and drop the new files into a portal. That way they have a unique date or description.
  5. If I understand you correctly you should be able to create a calculation field in the child table << ParentTable::fos_root_name & ChildTable::sequence number >>
  6. Setting the permissions for the source and the destination fixed things - thanks
  7. Yes PDF is visible and will attach to an email if the check box is selected. Insert file does work. just not Insert picture or PDF
  8. The file appears to save ok and the error occurs on the insert picture step. (error 100 file is missing). Just to be sure I changed get(temporarypath) to get(desktop path) but with same error.
  9. Thanks but unfortunately no luck I had already tried with out filemac (didn't work). There is no space - just looks that way And yes I can see the field highlight during the script
  10. Hello - If I run my script to insert a PDF from a saved PDF I get an error after the insert picture step saying "can't find the file" - I tried "insert PDF" but the debugger says it is a wrong file type. The data viewer shows - $temppath as filemac:/Macintosh HD/var/folders/bd/v_q7j9997d1dph_lz5m1x_mm0000gn/T/S10/Dec 2016-2077 UTAS Retainer.pdf the Script is as follows; Set Variable [ $temppath; Value:"filemac:/"&Get(TemporaryPath)&Project»DATA::worksheet filename&".pdf" ] Save Records as PDF [ File Name: “$temppath”; Current record ] Go to Field [ worksheet PDFs::PDF ] [ Select/perform ] Insert Picture [ “$temppath” ] Any help would be appreciated. Cheers John
  11. Interesting. I'll try that
  12. Hi Wim some of the backed up files won't open (file size in KB not MB)
  13. I would like to get the contents of a field before changes are made (for tracking). A script trigger "on entry" seems to work for regular fields but Checkboxs and Radio Buttons styles seem to change the contents before the trigger runs. any suggestions? Thanks John
  14. Hello all. I am running the FMS 14 backup scripts to a custom folder on the same disk as the Filemaker install. There are a number of errors generated. Schedule window Status says "permission denied" Main Status window say "Schedule "Daily" aborted; the destination "filemac:/server HD/fmsbak/" is not writable." Folders ARE created the backup databases but some files are corrupted (although others not) The backup folders do not delete after the schedule number of backups. And only recently I can't change the folder path as nothing happens if I validate or save and to log out I have to revert. Any help with this would be terrific. Thanks
  15. You could add the search field of the related table on its own layout on the first file and search only there if not opening the second file the the key parameter.
