  2. My FPro 18 advanced database is music contents. Table 1 is artist s. Table 2 is music (title of recording and other details) along with 2 portals. Table 3 which is track list and timing. Table 2 relationship Table 2 recNoID to Table 1 FK_recNoID. portal 1 has sideA fields; portal 2 has sideB fields. There is a gap equivalent to the number of portal 1 entries when viewing portal 2. Can't see option to upload image so hope I explained well enough.
  3. The command box appears and the disappears when I launch :\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Database Server\fmsadmin.exe. The window will not stay open.
  4. That is reasonable. I do truly appreciate the solution and for your work on this.
  5. Sorry, that's not something I am willing to do for you. You have a working demo, you can find the differences by yourself.
  6. Hello, I'd like to get a clearer image of the behavior you are seeing. Please send an email to our support team with a short video showing the behavior, along with a log file from the same time. You can use the documentation at http://docs.360works.com/index.php/Plugin_log_files to help you find the log files. You can send the email directly to support@360works.com, or use our form at https://360works.com/support/ to contact us. Thanks, Julie 360Works Support
  7. Thanks - this is exactly what I was trying to do. I did notice that one of my relationships was incorrect, so I appreciate that also. However, I tried to replicate your solution and I cannot seem to get the conditional value list to work. Attached is my attempt at replication. Thanks again. SCC_WF_Budgets copy 2.fmp12.zip
  8. As an update to this, I am seeing some files in a temporary folder in the MirrorSync directory that are potential matches for sync times when files were missing. There also seems to be a Data API error in the logs - could these be linked? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Hello FileMaker will ask for the related files whenever it thinks it *might* need them. When entering the sort dialog there may be related fields on the current layout, so it will need to display their name in the list of fields that you can sort on, so it will need the files. Also, if any of the fields that could be sorted on are calculated and need the related files, it will ask for them. There may be other reasons why FM's internal engine wants to check the related files. You will have to experiment, perhaps you can script a layout change to a layout that only has fields on i
  10. You need a conditional value list. See the attached demo. CondVL_AncestorItems.fmp12
  11. rHi, We've been using SC for years and have never before encountered this issue. On one workstation, a 2015 27" iMac, our served solution which has ~25K products, refuses to retain a new image of the product, despite being present in the Server folder for all other product images, each residing within their parent folder of the same name. Other workstations don't exhibit this behaviour. All are running FMP v18.0.3 under Mac OS Mohave or MacOS Catalina. Earlier today I deleted that Product record and imported the data back from yesterday's backup. I then opened the Data Viewer an
  12. This question may be more of an incorrect relationship setup than a value list, so I am hoping to get help with either/and. The tables in question are Budgets - which have a unique name and number; and are comprised of the table Accounts ; Transactions for expenses within a single budget; and TransactionsLI, that allow for multiple line items inside of the transaction via a portal and allow for a different account numbers for each line (e.g., line 1= salary, line 2= benefits - each has a different account number). In short, I need to create a new transaction in the transaction table,
  13. Last week
  14. Yes they are connected peer to peer so I'm not really sure what trigger this.
  15. I have an application where some of the related files will reside on removable media. When sorting, a message box appears telling the user that the related file (which is not on the server) can not be opened (Not Found) and asks the user to locate it. The related file may or may not be available on the removable media and is not needed for the purposes of the sort. Is there anyway to prevent this message from appearing? Error capture on does not solve the problem
  16. Do you have a relationship between Address and All_Locations, based on matching: Address::Location = All_Locations::Primary Key If so, use the All_Locations::Location field for your concatenating calculation.
  17. The table, "Address" has a field "Location". The Location field is formatted as a popup menu using a value list "Locations_VL" "Checked with "Override data formatting with value list" The value list "Locations_VL" is pulling from a table called "All_Locations" with a "Primary Key" field and a Location Field. the table is populated with separate locations The Value list "Locations_VL" is using the "Primary Key" as the first first field and the "Location" field for the second with the "Show values only from second field". This works fine the issue is when I want to concat
  18. Serial port plug-in updated for FileMaker 19 Lienden, the Netherlands, May 5, 2021–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Serial Plug-in 7.0 for Claris FileMaker Pro 19. What is Troi Serial Plug-in? Troi Serial Plug-in gives FileMaker Pro easy and powerful access to external devices with a serial interface: read from and write to the (virtual) serial ports of the computer directly from FileMaker Pro without the need of a separate application native FileMaker script triggering, to get incoming data into the database
  19. Today March 5th Featuring Joe Martin on 360Works ScriptMaster Now that Linux is here, where are we with a version???????? As you know I have some track record with the product, in fact just done two more functions today, but we are pretty much moving to Linux servers for all clients and being able to do this stuff on server gets more crucial by the day.
  20. May we ask that you should add or elaborate more the situation that cause the issue, is this a peer to peer or something, kinda like that. Please give us more details about it in order for us to help your dilemma.
  21. I already check this. Can the cause be also about the container files save externally. My client says the find in progress keeps popping up every hour consistently. like 2:42pm, 3:42pm, 4:42pm. I already check the server if there's script schedule but nothing.
  22. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/learn-something-every-day/ Including our regualr guest, Marc Larochelle, all 3 of us have extensive experience in the FileMaker training market including teaching classes, creating videos, writing books, speaking at conferences and much more. Whether you are a student or a budding trainer, this fascinating discussion about all things training will help you become a better trainer or student. Come listen as we discuss so many different aspects of training, it’s impossible to list them all here.
  23. I'm trying out the new Rich Text Editor and one thing which doesn't seem to work is 'Go to Object' with it. It doesn't work in FileMaker (Windows) or WebDirect. Does anyone have any idea how to get it working? I tested Go to Object with a standard Web Viewer and it worked fine so it seems to be an issue with Quill.
  24. I use scripts with the "Open URL" hyperlink function to open files and folders in MacOS X. I'd like to extend this functionality to Windows versions of FM. Here is an example Script: Set Variable [$hyperlink; Value: "file:///Volumes/MISC/Manufacturing/Packaging/"] Open URL [ with dialog: off; $hyperlink] Works great in OS X, but I'm, not sure the function to use for windows?
  25. Gonector allows custom FileMaker apps for iPhone or iPad to seamlessly integrate directly with various mobile devices such as digital scales, RFID readers and mobile printers. Today we are happy to announce version 2.0 which doubles the number of supported devices. The plug-in has been out for almost three years now and enabled some great apps to replace manual work with modern technologies, such as RFID and digital scales, without compromising the ease of use and development efficiency provided by the Claris FileMaker platform. We built Gonector with the idea that
