Good afternoon everyone.
I need to open a .xlsx file by pressing a button
I have tried with a script, where I establish a variable
$ filename = e: \ Works \ Josram \ Presup \ AAVSA \ slopes 345 7 Apr 14.xlsx
And using the command "Send DDE Execute"
The service name = "c: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office16 \ Excel.exe"
But when you run it, it just does nothing
Can someone tell me that I'm doing wrong?
I don't need to import o export a file.
I only need, when i click a button Excel runs and open the .xlsx file
Thanks in advance
First of all many thanks to creators for amaizng plugin.
What is the syntax for inserting images to excel?
ScribeDocWriteValue ( “addImage()”; image ; page ; x location ; y location ; height ; width )
Do not work for xlsx with error about invalid cell name (first parameter is function adn for excel it seams it is not recognized) for pdf works fine as in demo expample
I tried standard syntax for excel where first parameter is table cell and second is image in container but it do not insert the image.
Thanks in advance.
I am using Excel 365 on desktop and FileMaker Pro Advanced 15 with FileMaker Server.
I am able to connect to FileMaker from Excel using ODBC to read all records in a table or matching it to a hard coded name. Sample:
Select work FROM "Student Time Import" WHERE badgename="Patrick Dollar"
What I'd like to do is add a where clause where it selects hours worked based on the date in the Excel spreadsheet. The cell's date is B12 and so on. I know my syntax is wrong, but after several attempts, I haven't been able to solve it. Here is my syntax:
Select work FROM "Student Time Import" WHERE badgename="Patrick Dollar" and date = TimeSHeet(Select * FROM[SHRA Temp Timesheet.Range("B12).Value])
I am using FileMaker Pro 12. I wrote a script to look at a field and if the value is less or equal to .70 it will run the report. I have it set to Auto open an EXCEL spreadsheet. When the script runs I see that it finds the records but then my EXCEL spreadsheet is empty. Here is the script:
Perform Find [Restore] Save Records as Excel["TotalAttendance.xls";Automatically open;Records being browsed] Go to Layout[original layout] Show All Records In the Perform Find [Restore] I have the following coded:
Find Records PersonnelRecords::PercentDaysAttended:[<_ .70] That is suppose to be less than and equal to. Did not know how to show it with the keyboard.
I have 4 Tables of Sales Records (1 per Store) for the same 1000 products (each sold in the 4 Stores). Table1 (T1) has 30,000 records T2 has 50,000 records T3 has 10,000 records T4 has 10,000 records The fields in the 4 Tables have different names and contain similar “core” content. Tables are added to each month with additional records (imported into FM 14 Pro Advanced from Excel). Unfortunately the same Products are named slightly differently in each of the 4 tables. Each store / table has a (text) Product-ID but (for the same product) it is different per store. I do want to rectify this “naming problem” (perhaps in a Table #5?) so I can produce a report showing sales for each of the 1000 products across all 4 stores (grouped by date etc.) I’m not sure how to structure/carry-out this in Filemaker most effectively. Any ideas? Ultimately, when the data is clean, I want to upload ALL the records (e.g. 100,000 records) in one export into one Excel spreadsheet so I can run a Pivot Table (Cross-Tab) report. Do I need to combine the 4 Tables into 1 Master Table before doing an Export on the Master Table? If so, how would I do this? Thanks for any ideas about this?
