  1. Over the past ten years our organization have been using a PO database solution to store all purchasing information. Each year the layout would change to illustrate which year it represents. We would like to merge each of these databases into one for better searching capabilities. Is there an easy way to accomplish this task while still maintaining data integrity? Thank you!
  2. Hello! Although I used FileMaker 3-4 years ago to build a nice database to organize my material, research, and notes for my creative writing projects (and I still use that same database today), I haven't actually built anything new in FileMaker since then, so bear with me! My current objective is to create something that approximates a merger between the 'Starter Solution – Contacts' and the 'Starter Solution – Content Management' templates. The 'Contacts' starter solution template is a pretty great foundation for what I need in order to organize personnel because I'm doing a pretty large project wherein I will be working on a variety of smaller creative productions for which I will be collaborating with dozens of actors, actresses, musicians, writers, photographers, videographers/filmmakers, models, etc. The 'Content Management' template is only so-so for what I would like in order to organize a database of material, ideas, and notes (I will be primarily authoring or writing most of the scripts and sketches to be performed or produced as well as being the overall manager of all the creative content made). One concrete problem is that I'm having trouble creating a conditional value list, where I first select the "medium" or the type of content that will ultimately be produced (writing, still photography, or video/film), then according to my selection, the options for the next field will be narrowed down to a pre-determined set of choices (for example, if I chose 'still photography,' my options for the next field would be something like: "nature photos, portraiture photos, action photos, architecture photos, object photos," etc.). I did find a guide for doing this, but it's not quite working for me. If anyone knows the best (and possibly simplest!) way to achieve this, I'd very much appreciate it if you shared this with me. Anyway, I would also like other fields on Content Management database, like logistical information (date and time of production, location of production, etc.). But a key feature I would like is for it to be connect with the Contacts database. By this I mean that I can plug in perhaps 3-4 potential actors who might be compatible to cast for a specific role in a specific script in the Content Management database, and after plugging them in, I'd like for there to be some kind of button or function where I can click each of the candidates' names (or click a button next to each name) and be directed to their record or profile in the Contacts database (which will have their bio, photos, contact info, etc.). I appreciate any tips! I know I can find all of this out simply by researching more, but I was just hoping perhaps someone had a quick solution, as it seems like the need for combining these two types of databases might arise fairly often. Thanks!
  3. Is there a way to merge two Filemaker databases (they have identical fields)? The problem is we have 2 people populating the database on two separate computers. The plan was to load Person A's work into Person B's database and visa versa without losing data but I'm not seeing a merge function nor anything on this topic on any forum or help center. Any suggestions?
  4. Hi All, I want to use Scribe as a mail merge tool, but I don't want the result to be separate files because there quickly become too many of them to manage. I came up with a set of short apple scripts to have Word insert each file into the document as I go, but it occurred to me that it would be much faster and simpler if I could do the whole process in FM then just open the result in Word. I didn't see anything in the documentation that seemed to cover this. Any ideas? Thanks!
  5. Hi All Hopefully you can help me with a problem I am having sending mail for one of my clients. It's driving both him and me completely round the bend! We use the 360Works Mail plugin for sending bulk emails from our database, however I have one client who this doesn't work for. If I log in from my computer and send mails via his account all works fine, however when he does the same from his end, on the script step which creates the new message (EmailCreate) & sets the body (EmailSetBody), he gets the returned error: Missing local name Any idea what this means or what is the cause? I can't find a single clue from 360Works documentation, however some searching online indicates that the email address is missing the first part i.e, but this is not the case - the full email address is given as a parameter to the EmailCreate function. We're both using FM12, I'm on advanced though. Client is on a PC (XP or 7 I think) & I'm on a mac (mountain lion). Any ideas? And thank you in advance! Kind Regards Vicky Nesbitt
  6. Hi, I have few FM DBs which has same table and structure inside. is it possible to create Master db where I will merge all external tables together to one master table? Solution shouldn't one time solution but dynamic.
  7. I am trying to update our database and create more space. When it was originally developed, the bottom half of the screen was split into two separate tab panels and information has been stored that way for years. I would like to merge all tabs into one large tab panel. Is this possible?
