  2. I was under the impression that I have read somewhere that 360works plugins will be available by the time FMS19 Linux is released for a production build back when it was still in beta... Either way, I can't wait...

  4. I'm having a problem getting BE_SMTPsend to successfully send an email with an attachment. No problem sending without an attachment, but when I add an attachment, I get an error 2 (not sure exactly what that means, but without the attachment, no error) These are the argument strings with and without attachments: I have tried both relative and direct file paths for the variable $attachment. Examples are: Both of them return an error code of 2. Since the 'send' without an attachment works, all the values of the fields/variables other than $attachment mu

  6. I see what you're saying -- I hadn't considered that the whole path had to be space-free. I'll take your word for it and of course completely agree that Claris should fix it, especially since this isn't the first version to have this issue.
  7. I sent a press release recently, showing how one of my customers solved a FileMaker file corruption problem using FmPro Migrator. Quote from Gordon Cox, Enrich: "With a corruption in the main file we were faced with rebuilding 40 tables, 306 TOs, 159 layouts and 463 scripts. FmPro Migrator to the rescue and a few hours later we have a new, not corrupt, file saving us at least a weeks work. FmPro Migrator has saved the day." FmPro Migrator has the ability to rebuild FileMaker files as part of the Table Consolidation feature. On macOS, FmPro Migrator uses AppleScript GUI automat
  8. Thanks--mind if I unquote about that? : P That's what I get for following the instructions by the letter (under Example 1's bulleted instructions.) *sigh*
  9. Your SortKey field is defined as = GetField ( "SortSelection" ) This is wrong. It needs to be = GetField ( SortSelection ) Explanation: What you have populates the field with the values held in the field named SortSelection. This global field contains the value "CustomerName". Therefore ALL your records contain the value "CustomerName" in the SortKey field - and sorting by this field accomplishes nothing. Changing the formula as suggested will cause the field to populate with the values held in the field whose name is held in the SortSelection field. When this global fiel
  10. It is possible, but it will require two fields: a summary field defined as List of Field1 and a calculation field (result is Number) = ValueCount ( FilterValues ( sList ; "Apple" ) ) where sList is our summary field. The reason why this is not simple is that no single value in Field1 is supposed to be special. Filemaker provides a simple way to produce a separate count for each and every value: sort the found set by Field1 and place a summary field counting the records in a sub-summary by Field1 part.
  11. Hi, Table has field called Field1, I would like summary total of the current found set to say how many time 'Apple' is in the Field1 Is this possible?
  12. Greets, all: I put this post here (in Scripts) because I believe there's a scripting issue, more than a calculation issue, going on here so I hope you don't mind. I'm trying to learn how to use the GetField command and in the example file on FileMaker's website, it givesthis one: https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/17/fmp/en/index.html#page/FMP_Help%2Fgetfield.html%23 . I replicated the script in the attached file and for the life of me, I can't get it to work--it's trying to sort what's in the SortKey field, not the values in the data fields, i.e., If you enter CustomerName in the Sor
  13. As you may know we have a great Optimize command for DynaPDF. You can use it on PDF documents in both FileMaker and Xojo plugins. Over time the command got more and more powerful and we like to write here about some of the features. In general the function rebuilds the content stream of all pages, templates, patterns, annotations, and form fields. This may remove errors in the content stream and produce a consistent document. When you specify the flags, the default flag value (0) just rebuilds the content stream and fixes errors. You may specify "InMemory" to have changes made in a
  14. What would it cost to have someone make me a database using filemaker go on a single ipad for managing a lost and found inventory? What I would like it to do ... 1. log into the database each item being put in and by whom 2. take a picture of each item 3. print a sticker to affix to each item with a barcode so it can be referenced for disposal or pickup by owner 4. have email reminders for auditing on specific items that can perhaps only be stored for X hours before being destroyed (credit cards and such) 5. generate a weekly and monthly report for al
  15. Thank you jaboda Removing the spaces from the extracted install folder did resolve the installation issue. Thank you for the posting.

  18. Hi folks - we have a db hosted on FMPHost 19 shared server. I have go into FMServer Console and configured it to enable Google External Authentication and provided the client id and client secret of my google project. I added the oauth redirect URL of my FMPHost server to my Google project's allowed domains. I then added a test user to the database from the FM19 client Manage > Security add user > External auth > filemaker@xxxx.xxx. I rebooted the FM Server via the console. I made sure that the File Options are not set to automatically login as a local user. I then attempted to o
  19. My reply perhaps wasn't clear. Yes if the self-extractor created 'FMS' instead of 'FileMaker Server 19' that would resolve many of the issues if it's run from a folder without a space in it (for example 'C:\users\admin\Downloads'). However if it's run from 'C:\Users\John Smith\Downloads' or 'C:\FIleMaker Installers' then it would still fail. Therefore they should fix the original issue. 19.1.2 worked properly so why not 19.2.1?
  20. Who doesn't want to know how long something takes? It's not like we, as the busy bees we are, have all the time in the world - right? Well, how about some convenient progress information. One of the most common procedures within all of computing is to cycle or iterate over a set of something. In FileMaker, this comes in the form of records. A record loop is one of the most common things you'll ever do within FileMaker. Setting a field value to something else across a range of records? You'll likely use a record loop. So, what's the easiest way show the progress of that record loop? It's curr

  22. I'm saying they should extract it to a folder with no spaces.
  23. Yesterday I replied to an old thread - to be sure and make it clear, I'm just adding a new one here. What we're seeing on our Mac clients (and have been for 2+ years now) is: the web server (a Mac-based system) portion of our multi-machine configuration (DB server is Windows) has its security certificates in place. This means that when users access the web direct homepage, they're redirected to HTTPS. That works fine. However, Safari automatically creates an HSTS profile for that web server. That HSTS profile then automatically redirects any web traffic on that client to HTTPS. So i
  24. Having the same problem here. Works OK on Mojave but fails on Big Sur. It hangs FM. I have Allow Apple event and Active X turned on in extended Privileges. I have a bunch of Applescripts running dozens of processes and some seem to work and other just hang. Cant find a common denominator as yet but sure it might be a privileges issue in Big Sur and it seems with Catalina which you're running Aussie John.
  25. Thank you very much for your kind answer, you made my day. Regards
  26. Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but I am new to FileMaker. I want to automate the process of users importing an "update" fmp12 file into an existing database. Sometimes this update file will include a container field of images, other times (to keep the file size down) this field is omitted from the update file, so I don't think I can use Custom Order or Last Order because of this variation in table structure (and the user will not necessarily know which structure it is). I had expected "Matching Name" would cope with this, but when I am creating the script, when I select the blue M
  27. We have an existing FileMaker Server and I'm looking at using WebDirect. I have another server that I'm going to install FileMaker Server on and am wondering if there is any benefit to setting this second server up as dedicated WebDirect server instead of as a Worker of the existing FileMaker Server. Both servers will be MacOS running FMS 19.2.1 Feel free to just point me in the direction of documentation....I couldn't locate any that really addressed this.
  28. That wouldn't resolve the issue - if the installer is extracted in a folder with spaces in the name then it would fail. I suspect they've missed out quotes when referring to the FMS msi package, which is just bad testing.
