  1. I concatenate 2 PDF files using ghostscript on the Mac, not sure how to do that on Windows, should be a similar way. If you like your PHP approach I do recommend looking into the way I write about in my blog: http://wethecomputerabusersamongst.blogspot.com/2013/10/execute-php-script-from-filemaker-with.html?q=mercutio
  2. You can design your solution for this make a designated folder in the Documents folder of the user running. Example: ~/Documents/designatedfolder If you run TimeMachine, make sure you disable your designated folder for the FileMaker file(s) in question For backups do yourself a favour and do an export records of the type FileMaker to the designated folder named with a timestamp; Example ~/Documents/designatedfolder/designated-2017-04-15.fmp12 Never use the same machine for FileMaker Server and other tasks at the same time; only exception is to keep FMPA installed on the server in case of emergency, do not launch until Server is stopped. And only use for repairing the broken files from the server. Never used a repaired file; only export its data.
  3. I have access to latest postgresql from FM11SA using ESS.
  4. 512 Record was already modified by another user You say nothing about how you UPDATE the data. Which OS does the machine that runs FM11SA run? When I do what you describe I export a selection of data AS XML and do an XML / XSLT / tr -d / tidy / xsltproc transformation on the command line and then do an UPSERT based on recid / modid.
  5. cron or php? Using cron you are usually better off using the system mailer.
  6. It looks like you should be able to do GetAsCSS( fieldname ) and then use the output of that in its own field. No need for supporting/shadow field: http://www.filemaker.com/help/12/fmp/html/func_ref3.33.54.html Yet you will have to override CSS font or be stuck with whichever font is put inside FileMaker by the looks of it.
  7. This is true for FileMaker 11, unless FileMaker made some serious upgrades to their php api after this; here is my piece of advice. As a rule of thumb what you export when you export to XML for FileMaker is what you can bring to the web. That said I'd imagine you can make a supporting field that holds the info you are after.
  8. Yes, this is quite simple in FileMaker you just make as many columns you'd like across on the layout and change the inital row for column; as pr image below, not sure about its dynamics though...
  9. I'm not sure if you want to debug that, after all you have no access to the source code and for better or worse making a change is not really appreciated by FileMaker, Inc My 2 cents worth install nginx, configure reverse proxy. Then close the file, and reopen the file. You should be set for weeks of non-interrupted FileMaker WPE action.
  10. You could write a script for server that is triggered every 5 mins by the server's script scheduler that checks if a record has a creation timestamp last 5 mins by your php script user, and if so issue an email.
  11. Without seeing your tables it's hard to give an exact answer, my immediate guess is that you would use a combination of relationships and layouts( triggers may also apply to your use case ) to achieve some kind of OLAP/CUBE kind of thinking. I just did something similar a couple of weeks back, if you would like my 2 cents worth, PM. Which properties do you sequence? Do you file for both polarities of the helix as well as the regular ATCG? What I did was to export key fields from a selection of records to temp folder and reimport them in the tables are needed according to primary keys and rules.
  12. So you are basically spreading the information to everybody no need for 1 person to verify the data and then inform the others. Then what @rwoods suggest is probably the better option.
  13. I believe you are asking the wrong question, both FileMaker and the web can send email perfectly fine. Is this a spread point for information? Then letting the submit button on the web may be the way to go, as mentioned by @rwoods Is this a starting point for somebody to prepare something inside FileMaker? Then letting the preparations be done first and click at the end of the preparations to trigger an email may give a more live feeling to the other pariticipants.
  14. The combination thereof could prove otherwise... However if it's all defined in UBL or any other open standard, it should be hard to patent.
