Hi, I am using filemaker 11 to copy customer info from excel into the database and then it would generate special keys in pdf allowing us to send the file to the customer.
My access to the filemaker is non-admin, and the import function of customer info has been blocked.
We are keying in the record one at a time, so we are looking at ways to automate this process.
When I try to create a new record using applescript with just
it was not allowed. There are data that require validation like date and auto-indexed record number.
So, is there a way we could create new record and then using the set function to copy data into the report?
How can I get ESS access to PostgreSQL from FM11SA?
I have two filemaker servers. One is version 7 and the other is version 11 advanced. I transferred the files from FM7 server to FM11 with no problem. Long story short, everything was great until I realized that the users were still using the FM7 files. To fix the problem, I shut down the filemaker service on both servers, then made a backup of each server by copying the files to another folder. Then I removed the FM11 files that were never used and copy and pasted the .fp7 files from the FM7 server to the FM11 server. I started the filemaker service on FM11, opened the files using the FM11 console. Now when I try to open the files on a workstation, the files do not show up in the Remote list. The server console shows that they are open. How can I correct this?
I want to share a good cloud backup alternative, Hubic, it gives 25 GB free, and you can schedule backup to happen "x" hours or minutes after a file has changed.
So just add a backup schedule to the "Hubic"folder of your PC or MAC where you have your server and instruct Hubic to sync 1 hour after, that way you make sure the upload will happen after your backup has completed.
Neat and free.
I was using Onedrive, but with the recent decrease in free capacity I looked for alternatives, I specially like the delay before upload.

I'm helping a client who has an old install of Filemaker Server Advanced 11 running on a Mac Mini.
It's been running Filemaker v11.5 for about 2 year without any issue... All of a sudden today, it stopped working!
I checked to see if there were any updates installed from apple or java... NONE!
I completely uninstalled Filemaker Server and reinstalled v11.5 and applied the java fix... still won't start.
Just for laughs I installed v11.2, that installed fine, up and running no problem, as soon as I restart the Mac Mini, everything takes a dump. When I go to localhost:16000 or serverip:16000 in the browser, nothing happens, as if filemaker server was never even installed. If I double click the applet icon, it says "Unable to launch the application - Connection Refused".
