I have the following problem. I'm working on a solution for the owner of several restaurants. Each restaurant has meetings once or twice a month. How would I structure the tables so that I could have a layout on which I select a restaurant and then inside a portal I get a list of all employees. On the portal for each row I want to have a button or checkbox to mark if an employee is present or not.
I already have the following tables:
Restaurants, Employees and Meetings
So far I have a relationship between the Restaurants and Employees table which I use to assign employees to a restaurant, and a relationship between the Meeting and Restaurant table, which allows me to show all employees that work at a selected restaurant using a portal on the meetings layout. How do I proceed to solve my problem? Do I create another table MeetingAttendees or something similar that I use to keep track of people attending a meeting? How would I create a relationship then to allow me to mark certain employees as present and absent?
Thanks in advance,
When I try to start FMP16 - since the latest update - I get an error message without any part of FMP appearing on the screen. There is a lot of data but the bit that caught my eye is this:
Anybody else having or had this issue?
Any known solution?
Filemaker support seem to think its an Apple problem - something to do with my user account.
Apple seem to think its a filemaker problem.
Happy to supply the rest of the error message if required.
Had to step away from this for a while, but now back with it.
I have nailed up the two tables I want to sync, however, when try and sync, I get an error that reads
Attempt to push data has failed (The message received from the server was : "201")
I have two questions really.
I don't need to push data, as no data will be allowed to be changed on the 'mobile' side, can I disable this, if this is what the issue is.
What is a 201 error, and how can I identify which field is causing the issue?
I assist with a FMP 11 database that manages projects and related data, about 10,000 projects currently.
I setup a new tool that tracks a ADL requirement with a simple YES/NO drop down value list. Users choose if the project requires ADL tracking by selecting YES/NO, and we have a layout that lists all 10,000 projects with the ADL requirement that shows YES, NO or empty value. This layout also shows lots of other project records that are searchable without error.
I am trying to perform a Find on this layout to display all values with YES selected, or NO selected. The appropriate relationship is setup on the graph so my list shows all 10,000 projects, and other records that are searchable, but my YES/NO value list gives me a "No records match the find criteria." Before I write a script with a button I am testing the find function steps first, and I keep getting the same error.
I open the layout, click show all (10,000) records.
I click Find then click the ADL Requirement and click either YES or NO.
I click Perform Find and get the No records match this criteria error.
This seems to be a very simple operation, to search records in the database, and for the life of me I cannot find why it isn't working!!
Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance!

I have a configuration table (named 'Usager actif') with 'Projet ID actif' and start/end date values (field name 'Bilan date début' and 'Bilan date fin') linked to a timesheet table (named 'FTemps lié Projet bilan') to show only the records that match, according to the following relation:
This table is also linked to a step table (named 'Étapes lié FTemps lié Projet bilan') to show a list of steps used by the timesheet table (named 'FTemps lié Projet bilan'), base on the following relation:
So the last table (named 'Étapes lié FTemps lié Projet bilan') is shown in a portal and it's working correctly (show only two steps used, for all the timesheet records). But I wanna show the total time used for each step (first step is 5 hours, and last one 95 hours). It's working correctly if the start/end date included all timesheet records. But if I shrink the ending date (removing 2 hours from the timesheet in step 2), the total time by step still show all time since the context does not follow from timesheet table to the step table in relation.
I still see 5 hours for step 1 and 95 hours for step 2 (should be 93). The total time for all step is now 98 hours, since the ending date has been shrink (removing 2 hours on step 2).
How can I do this (hope fully I'm clear enough)?
