Has anyone had the following issue and might have a quick fix. I migrated client files from FM Server 13 residing on Mac Server to FM Server 14 residing on Windows Server. All went very well except one thing, which i would be grateful if someone could help me on. PREVIOUS STATE - The client had his files hosted on OX platform and with FileMaker 13 Server. - There is a container field in the records that would contain pdf files, these are 1 or more pages document files. - When the user dragged the file into the container field it would display as page thumbnail BOTH on Mac and Windows. AFTER THE MIGRATION TO WINDOWS SERVER - files still display thumbnails when dragged on MAC - the files are displaying FILE ICON when dragged into the container on WINDOWS. Tech boards are suggesting that Windows can not insert the file as picture into the FM container field, but there it happened before. Does anyone have any isight on this behaviour, is it documented anywhere? Thank you
I'm looking to create a script and place it in a button to exist on two layouts (BACKUP and MAIN), to accomplish the following when activated from either layout:
Copy current ACCTNUMBER
If current layout is MAIN
then go to BACKUP layout and show the same ACCTNUMBER record.
current layout is BACKUP
then go to MAIN layout and show the same ACCTNUMBER record.
....I'm sure it's a no brainer but right now I'm totally missing some small step to start the script ....help?

I seem to find variating answers to this topic, so here I try again.
How do I use a variable to perform a find in a script? I want to use the field contents of the current record to search for similar records.
Background: We send a lot of people out to different countries and I want to make a script that makes an excel sheet with various data based on the country field of the current record. Hence, if the current record is going to France, I want to see everybody that we currently have in France etc. However, we have two return dates so I need to do two searches:
1. Country+ departure date <=// + arrival date >=//
2. Country+ departure date <=// + Extended arrival date >=//
Is it really true that perform find cannot handle a variable?
Hope you can help.
I had been using FM EasySync for few months now, so it had been working fine till now.
Without having any change in the table structure, i got the error " The attempt to push data into server has failed ( The mesage recevied rom the server was "852" )
852 Error is : Cannot write a file to the external storage
I believe this is related to container fileds I am using. There has been no change in the Container field options. They are still being stored "Externally" on the server with Open Storage option. Also there hasn't been any change on Server policies as well.
I have no clue as to what could have cause this. Anyone having idea about this ??
I am using Insert From URL to send HTTP GET request to my server and get the result.
I have a function PING that returns 1 if the server is online, but it cannot returns 0 if it is not so I am catching the error on filemaker :
Connection timed out; the timeout value is 60 seconds.
Is there a way to reduce this timeout value so the user does not have to wait a minute to know that the server is offline ?
Similarly, if a process takes too long to answer, is there a way I can timeout the Insert From URL command ?
