FileMaker friends, could someone please teach me a new trick
I'm building an interface for composing "counsel" documents with each sentence it's own related record
Sometimes I need to move the portal rows around, like in my "Old McDonald" example
I think they call this kind a thing a "custom search order"
Is it possible to "Drag and Drop"? If not, no problem, how about a scripted button?
What would you do?
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 don't really know if the Title really explains my situation, but here it is..
I have Four Fields: Name, Gender, Class and Policy
Policy Field is an Unstored Calculation with the calculation below with result set to Text
If ( Gender = "Male" & Class = "Primary"; "RUNNING" ;"EXPIRED")
Meaning, my intention is to Set the Policy field as Running, if the Student is Male and in Primary Class, otherwise, it should be set to Expired..
The calculation does not work, some fields are displayed correctly with the correct value while others are not.
However, if I remove the Logic "&" from the calculation making it only a single criterion, If ( Gender = "Male" ; "RUNNING" ;"EXPIRED"), then it works well..
Why can't I compare several fields using "&" or "OR" with that function?
Is there a better way of actualizing this?
I am importing a csv file and need to use matched field names when importing: the provider of the file adds fields from time to time. However one of the field names in the cvs file ends with a space and when managing field names I do not seem to be able to define a field name which ends in a space. Every time I do the field name has the trailing space removed when I save it. Does anyone have a solution?
Thanks in advance.
After moving to FMP advanced 13 I still don't know how to automatically add a new field in the current layout I work on.
Before it was simple but now I always need to drag the icon into the layout in Layout mode.
Is there a way to tell the app to ALWAYS add new fileds to the current layout
Thanks a lot
