  1. I have a MacMini running macOS Sierra with FM11PA that works; however this FM11PA was installed when there was MacOS X 10.10 on the MacMini. Attempting to install FM11PA on my MB15R fails, well the installer appears to work fine( as pr attached image, ) but launching the app( as pr attached image ) tells me somebody has been fiddling with the installation and that I have to reinstall the application.
  2. Hi, I have FileMaker 11 and I created a interface to pull data from my website's sql. I am able to change the name of a product, but I cannot change the price of the mysql table through the FM 11 interface. Is there something I miss doing? I am using odbc to connect. Thanks.
  3. How to parse a text file with multiple paragraphs (with carriage return), into a portal containing the paragraphs separately.

  4. I am modifying the Invoice sample that comes with FM to provide some basic Inventory management functions. Works pretty well. However...I really need to be able to order a product in 2 ways : (1) (Kit - ISBN) and have that deplete and ship all of the parts that make the kit. (2) as individual pieces) For example: Kit 1234 (includes) 3 of part 2234 5 of part 9987 1 of part 097 Someone might order Kit 1234 PLUS an extra 9987. Make sense? No clue on how to connect them. Thanks in advance File Maker Jedis.
  5. Hi, I have a Filemaker Pro 11.04 database running and it's great. However I wanted to make a simple amendment which is proving very frustrating to do. I have a customer contacts layout that I can click on a button to create invoices. All the relevant contact data is ported and I get taken to a new layout (Invoice Data) where I input the relevant information for invoices (the items, quantities etc). When I'm ready to print I click another button on this layout and it takes me to another invoice layout (Invoice Print) that condenses the information input into the data layout into a more printer friendly version and prints it off (via script) automatically - this has worked like a charm for years! Recently though our invoicing layout requirements have changed and I wish to add a note box that I could type short messages that would be specific to that invoice (i.e not something that will appear on every invoice) - just a simple text note should be perfect for this. So I created a new field called 'Invoice notes' and set it as a text only box and added this field to both the 'invoice data' layout and the 'invoice print' layout. I thought that would be it, but when I'm in Browse mode and add text into this box, whatever text is added is erroneously added to every invoice - not what I wanted at all. All I want is to be able to leave a small individual message on an individual invoice that applies specifically to the invoice and customer I'm writing it to. I'm at a loss on how to achieve this as I can't see what I'm doing wrong - I really thought it'd be a 5 minute task, but it's proving frustratingly difficult to achieve and I've wasted hours trying to do it.. And advice on what to do would be gratefully received. Thanks GB PS: This is a Modified FM Starting Point Database if that helps running os OSX 10.10
  6. Hi all, I've got a problem I've been struggling with for a few days now and I'm hoping someone here can help. Apologies if this is actually quite simple. I'm not a complete beginner with FM, but far from advanced. Anyway, here's the problem: I have a parent table called Collections, and a child called Items. 1 Collection can have many Items. I also have a table called Requests. This table should allow a user to request a selection of items from a particular collection, so that these items can be physically delivered from storage to our premises. Each Request should be unique and retained as a permanent record, allowing us to have a history of when Requests were made and what Item they were for. This is where my problem starts. I've attached an image showing how the relationships are set up between tables. My problem is that even though on the Request form I can bring up a checkbox set of items that changes depending which Collection has been selected (drawn from a value list), when I create a new request for that Collection the previous Request' selections are already checked, and if changed will effect the previous record. How should this relationship be set up to avoid this? I'd assumed I should use a join table at some point, but wherever I try this I'm told I can't have more than one relationship instance between any two tables... To take it a step further, often a Collection will have so many Items that the checkbox set field isn't anywhere near big enough. Without a scroll bar option on checkbox sets, it seems to me that in the Requests form that field should in fact be a portal, which will allow a scroll bar. In this instant, how would this effect the above relationship problem? Thanks again for the help, and taking the time to read this! Franco
  7. I create a sales ticket in FMP11 and then print the sales ticket out for my customer. I have a layout for the sales ticket. I'd like to be able to give my customer the option for me to email this sales ticket to their email address. I already have a field for their addredss in my layout. How can I email a one page form? I use Windows Live Mail 2011 on a PC.

  9. Hi All, I am using IIS 7 ,Filemaker 11 and PHP 5.2.17. I have installed IIS and Filemaker 11 server correctly and also for the default site added in the handler mapping section the correct path for the FM webpublishing PHP which is C:\Program Files (x86)\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\php\php5isapi.dll. But when I run the php code then I get an error as : PHP Notice: Only variable references should be returned by reference in C:\Program Files (x86)\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\php\FileMaker\Command.php on line 126.Can any1 please help? Thank you in advance.
  10. I cannot get FMP Advanced 11.0.4 to run under Yosemite. Anyone else seeing this? I get the Java 6 Runtime message as described here: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14038 ... but it is not plugin related (as I have deleted all 360 Works and other plugins in an attempt to get running). Is there a risk to other systems if I install the legacy Java SE6 listed here? http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 Bit of a blocking problem for me on my main work machine (have a backup Mavericks machine still). Thanks for any advice.
  11. I've created a report with a Grand Leading Summary. The problem is, I'm getting a blank line above where it's printing the summary. See the attached screenshots. Is there any way I can prevent this from happening? Thanks for your help! Â
  12. Hi everybody: I have a product drop down list that shows all products for a certain supplier when making a new order. The list changes according to the supplier of the products. This is easily done by indicating who the supplier is in the products Table and making the appropriate relationship. Now, I want to shorten the list by eliminating obsolete products (I need to keep history, so I can't simply delete the obsoletes from the products table) The products table has a field which I can click when a product becomes obsolete. My solution (it works, but I don't like it) is adding a field called obsolete in the purchase orders table, which is automatically set to "no" and I added a second relationship for the value list, so that if product is obsolete, it is no loger valid via the relationship. Any ideas of a better way to do it? Thanks Carlos
  13. Hello, I have taken on a database developed in Filemaker 7 and it is currently running in Filemaker Server 11. I need to setup a development environment so that I am not working on the live system for obvious reasons. I read an article on the Filemaker website on the ways to do this. I chose the option to copy the files from a backup to a local machine to work on. I copied all of the database files from the backup on the server to my local development machine. The database does work in a way but most of the files I try to open it tells me "This file was not closed correctly - performing consistency check". I have tried running the "recovery" option on some of the files but even the recovered version of the files still come up with this error, so every time I try to open them it has to perform this consistency check. This isn't ideal as it is slowing the development down a lot due to having to perform the check every time I want to test a change I made. I saw an article claiming it is possible to disable the consistency check as a last resort but cannot find that option anywhere. Ideally I would like to still use the consistency check if there is a way for me to solve this problem. What would be my best option to solve these issues? Thanks for any help you can provide. Rikki
  14. I need to upload some files that I have modified to the Filemaker server. I have been working on a backup set of the database on my local dev machine and now would like to implement these changes to the Filemaker server. Which is the best way for me to do this so that I don't have to manually edit the files on the server to copy what I have modified? I would like to know the best practice in this situation, As you can tell I'm very new to Filemaker but have been thrown in at the deep end and really need a little help on the best way around this problem. Many thanks Rikki
  15. I'd like to keep the user on the currently selected tab even when the user leaves for another record. I have a script that identifies the currently active tab and another that restores that tab state. I can trigger the latter via layout script trigger "OnRecordLoad" but how do I trigger the "memorizer" - even when no changes have been made to the record? I am on FM11 so I don't have access to the new Tab-script behaviours.
  16. Hello Fellow Filemakers! I have a IWP solution which is working well apart from a couple of issues with Portals. I have discovered that the "Go to Portal Row" does not work for IWP which is a headache for my users as they are often working with over 100 records in the portal I am referencing. So the problem is the portal resets to the top after my users interact with the records. I am thinking of adding two fields "Initial Row" and "number of row" and using the filter option on the portal to display the records the user specified. But I am drawing a blank on how to achieve this. I've done date range filters in portals and am thinking I want to employ a similar strategy. If anyone could shed some light on this request I'd really appreciate it. - I've got Admin staff putting pressure on the big wig to replace my Filemaker solution with a boxed product so if I can get this solution working it would really help me out. thanks Jordan
  17. Hi, I'm having a problem with sharing a database, i just cannot solve. the technical department of the company uses a filemaker database to keep track of the materials in stock. For ease of use, they want to share the database so colleagues can access and change the database items from other computers. I followed the procedure on the filemaker pro website to share the database using the client, not a filemaker server. At first this looks ok, the database is accessible from other computers, and the fields can be updated. However, when another user logs in on another computer, the share settings change on the Host. more specifically, the "network access to file" changes from "all users" to "no users". Anyone have any idea how this can happen? thanks, Stijn
  18. Hi: By mistake I installed FM11Pro using the same licence key on 2 machines Windows 7 and Windows XP (yes, I still use it and love it) I thought: no problem, I'll uninstall and reinstall on one of the machines. Surprise, it does not appear in Add/remove programs XP; Programs and features W7, so I have no clue on how to properly remove it. Right now I have 2 users who cannot use FM concurrently. A possible solution is to upgrade one machine with an extra licence of FMPA 11 that I have, but I find it strange to be unable to remove it. Any ideas? Thanks Carlos
  19. We have two copies of Filemaker Pro Advanced 11v4. We are working from different geografical locations. Our database lies in a shared Dropbox. Until now my collegue have worked from 8:00 to 13:00 and med from 13:00. Isn't it possible for us to work with the database at the same time without a server version og FM?
  20. This could very well be a very complicated question, but I'm hoping that someone with far more knowledge than me will have a quick answer to this issue. I have created a financial database that I use to display my boss's financial information via different reports. Let me first say that I KNOW there is a better way to do this, but I have managed to make this work for almost five years, so I'm just looking to fix this one issue, not restructure my database. No question about the fact that I probably did things the hard way. Oh well... I use this database file only for the current year. I generally make a copy of the file and then erase prior year data so I can start fresh. However, some data must remain in the database, like budget information. I enter the actuals on a monthly basis. I have one report that is called "Cash Flow Summary" that is mostly portals used to display the relevant data for each month. Each month remains blank until the data for that month is added to the file. However, when I generated this report for the first month in 2014, it found data for future months that doesn't exist in the current file, and some fields that are blank when there is data to be displayed. I have compared this report structurally with prior years to see what I may have done wrong, but everything looks identical. I even compared prior years that worked to other years that worked and cannot see where I'm going wrong in 2014. They all look the same structurally. As an experiment, I made a copy of the file so I could erase EVERYTHING and see what happens with this report. The Cash Flow Summary report is still pulling data from other sources even though the file is empty of records. I just don't get it. I tried to attach the file, but it says I'm not permitted to upload this type of file. I'm not sure how I am going to get assistance if I can't provide the file for someone to review. Anyone who can offer a suggestion here will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
  21. Hi, We have a FMP Server 11 and a FMP 13 version. We cannot upgrade the FM Server 11 to 13. We need to get FM13 data into the FMServer 11. Are there ways to accomplish this ? - Export records script from FM13 - ODBC connection between FM11 and FM13 ? Thanks for looking into my question.
  22. Hi all, I have a filemaker customer database and one layout includes a webviewer to display the map from google-maps for a customer's location. While the map is displayed perfectly in browse mode I am having the problem that when I print the record or enter preview mode, the content of the web viewer is blank. I have fiddled with all options in Inspector but I cannot find a way around this and am finding it very challenging! One time only, for no apparent reason it displayed correctly in preview but since then nothing - Is this a known bug? Any help would be very greatly appreciated as I'm getting ready to tear my hair out.... :-/ I am using FM Pro Advance 11 on Mac OSX 10.7.5 and this is the custom code I have in the webviewer: "data:text/html, <style type='text/css'> html,body { overflow:hidden; } </style> <html> <head> <title>NavText</title> </head> <body bgcolor='#FFFFFF' TopMargin='0' style='border:0'> <iframe width='" & GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer" ; "width" ) & "' height='" & GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer" ; "height" ) & "' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0' src='http://local.google.com/maps?q=" & DATABASE::Street 1 & "," & DATABASE:City" & "," & DATABASE ::Postal Code 1 & "&amp;output=embed&iwloc=0&z=17'> </iframe> </body> </html>" regards, Jeb.
  23. I have a database with just under a couple of dozen fields within each record. In its current form, only four fields are included in the Tab Order--about a third of the fields are calculated or otherwise don't use keyboard entry so I wouldn't tab to them anyway, and the rest are only used in particular instances. However, there are another three fields that I do enter text into with some regularity; when I do so, it's usually in all three. What I'd like to be able to do is to have two independent sets of Tab Orders--that is, if I'm editing any of the four fields that currently have a Tab Order set, then tabbing switches between the four. If, however, I click into one of the three fields that I periodically need to edit (but don't currently have a Tab Order) then tabbing switches between those three only, until I click back to a different field. I suspect this is impossible (at least, I don't see how in FM 11, which I currently use), but I thought I'd check, as well as see if there are any esoteric options.
  24. I have an old FM3 application for an agriculture program that has been migrated to FMP11 via FMP5. In the app there is a record layout in one file (Exhibitor) that includes a portal allowing modification of related child records from another table in another file (Animals). There is a button in the portal layout to take a user from the portal in the Exhibitor layout to an Animal layout in the Animals file, showing the record from the Exhibitor's portal. The script fired on the button click scrolls the records in the Animal file to the current record in the portal, then runs Select Window to switch focus to the other layout, with the fields populated with that record. This target layout also contains a portal to ANOTHER child table in another file (Classes), with related records for the Animal item in this layout. Sounds simple, and this configuration works fine in the original FM3 and converted FMP5 versions, but when it was updated to FMP11 (.fp7), when the user attempts to alter records in this Animal layout, a warning dialog pops stating "This record cannot be modified in this window because it is already being modified in a different window". It seems that the Animal record is still locked for modification from the Exhibitor portal and changes cannot be made to either the Animal record or the Classes table via the portal. The current workaround for this is to run the script on a button in the Animal layout that returns to the Exhibitor layout (the reverse of the script that got us here), which seems to unlock the record. I've looked into Commit record but that doesn't seem to work, and I tried moving the Select Window command to a script in the Animal window and calling the script from the Exhibitor file. If anyone knows how/why the record remains locked after changing layout contexts I would appreciate any insights! Dave
  25. Could use some help hunting this down. I have a relational database with one table containing 3 primary data fields to find records including a status which is Pending, Active or Complete. The other selection fields are Activity, Project type, Program type. When the found set selection is status is Pending and Program type is Emergency Repair, a phantom record is created which I can delete. If I add the Project type to the find, no phantom. If I add the Activity to the search, a phantom is created. When I search for Pending on all other Program types in the database, there are no phantoms created. It is only for this one program type, Emergency Repair. Once parameters are met to switch the record to Active, there are no phantom records created for a search for Emergency Repair. Only when in the Pending status for Emergency Repair. Baffled. Ideas? Thanks, Dave
