    May I suggest that you work with this version going forward. It clarifies key field names, reorganizes the graph, and eliminates "portal" from any table or relationship names. The TO may be used in a portal. But labeling the TO as someThing_someThingPortal hides actual relational concepts. Test File DemoJOBR.fmp12

    Not sure in what form you need the results. Here's your file back with two global fields that contain a list of unique skus and the count of that field (set by script). DEMOv2.fmp12

    Let's all get along? It's been rare for our forums, but on occasions I have had to step in to keep the peace and harmony of the site. At times personalities clash - and the typed repsonses are often done in haste - and the sort of thing that wouldn't be said if we were all in same room together. I am encouraging everyone to re-read https://fmforums.com/guidelines/ our guidelines. Let's please keep threads on topic. - and not abuse the "reporting" system. Please be courteous of others and if you have offended someone please extend a sincere apology. The least thing I enjoy doing is to put people in 'timeout' or ban them from the site. Thank you.

    Aleesha, another thing which fits for you right now is making it easy on yourself in future to know specifically which table occurrences have Allow Creation turned on. It looks obvious here but as your solution grows, it won't always be obvious and we can forget as well. What many developers do is use the text tool to create reminders such as the A or a - if 'deletion' or S for sort.

    Hi Gilbert, There's a tiny box when you double-click the script step (Perform Script on Server) called "optional script parameters": That is where you need to enter your parameter. It could be a variable ($variable) or just text in quotes. Don't forget that you can't debug on the server, so you'll want to add error trapping very often and send yourself a mail if something can fail. Also, you might want to Exit the server script with a parameter, if you need to pass it back to your original script: Exit Script (parameter). And in your original script then you'll have to get that parameter back by: Get (ScriptResult). Hope this helps, Agi

    You took the words right out of my mouth, Tom. Unfortunately, I hadn't had the time to follow this thread as I'd liked. Wim explains it very well below, link here https://community.filemaker.com/thread/149215?start=0&tstart=0 (although the entire thread is well worth the study). OneStop, you're lucky to have such great assistance. This is why I still ask questions here as well. :-) My apology for not reading the entire thread so I'll only suggest that using Perform Script on Server is lightening fast if you can use it. I'm still blown away at the speed differences. Agnes, you've been quite helpful and respectful throughout. This forum is lucky to have you assisting.

    With the advent of a new Fiscal Year for the FileMaker Developer Community, we will experience five emerging trends in FileMaker Information Security. Each of these will likely have specific impact on developers, on our clients, on the Platform, and on the larger business environment in which we operate. Cumulatively and symbiotically, the magnified impact of the five will have the potential to alter many long-standing practices and conventions. What are these five trends? How will they impact the developer community? Read more and download article here: https://fmforums.com/files/file/94-five-emerging-trends-to-impact-filemaker-platform-security/ Steven H. Blackwell

    I'm not sure which topic this belongs in but... I really just wanted to let everyone on these forums know how thankful I am for your support, advice and guidance. Over the past few years as my small business has grown into a bigger business I've needed filemaker to do more advanced things and as I am not a developer and simply a business owner, I've turned to these forums and to you all and I couldn't have built my database without your help. From the bottom of my heart thank you so much!! Matt

    I don't understand the question. It seems to me like you've already identified what needs to be done. I would recommend breaking it down and getting one portion working at a time, doing whatever research/experimenting you need to figure out each step. If you searched through the help file, I think you'd find you can piece this together. For your first step "Open Find" for example, you might want to read this: https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Ffind-request.html. The reference section of the help is useful for exploring what script steps are available: https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Fscript-steps-category.html%23 Here is some more general help on writing a script: https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Fscripts.html%23

    Hi riadh2002 Thanks fo posting this mod. I love it, when someone can extend on what I start. Really glad that my tool seems to have been helpful to you and others. In case someone has only had their hands on the first version, I released, the most recent version of the tool, let's you both import, "make FM ready" SVG - but the most useful feature of the newest version, is that you can take a found set, press the button to "copy" all found icons and paste them into your solution all at once. So say you have a standard collection of SVG icons, that you normally want to use. Find these icons in the tool. Copy them. And then you use the paste shortcut, which will insert a button bar object, that you can delete immediately after you pasted it. Now, all your icons appear in the tools palette of your file. Newest version can be found here: http://thebrainbasket.com/?p=404 (completely free and open)

    For anyone who have pale icons in filemaker after importing here is how to change the colour to red Many thanks to Claus Lavendt, of DataMani for providing the tool for free Using SVG icon Helper, can be downloaded here for free: http://www.filemakervideos.com/filemaker-14-svg-icon-helper-tool-filemaker-14-training/ And this code takes into account all shape elements of SVG such as circle, rectangle, polygon,,,etc. and Works Great with IonIcons.com Library It removes existing fills and fm_fill class and substitutes with new values so it works with SVG with or without fill attribute. You can also change the color at the top of the code 1. Open SVG icon Helper FM database and open Script Workspace 2. Go to Script “Edit SVG files - mini icons….” 3. Go to the comment “#make changes” 4. Open the Set variable script step just below 5. replace the existing code by the following: 6. save and go back to the main layout and click the button with the blue pen, select folder and validate You’re done :-), now you can re import the icons into filemaker Let ( [ ~content = $content; ~color = "#FF0000"; // We need to search for all existing fills and remove them ~content=If ( PatternCount ( ~content ; "fill=\"" ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "fill=\"" ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 14 ) ; "" ) ; ~content ); // We need to search for all existing fm_fill and remove them class=\"fm_fill\" ~content=If ( PatternCount ( ~content ; "class=\"fm_fill\"" ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "class=\"fm_fill\"" ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 15 ) ; "" ) ; ~content ); // Then add the fills in the appropriate positions covering all possible SVG elements //<path ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<path " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<path " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 6 ) ; "<path fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<rect ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<rect " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<rect " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 6 ) ; "<rect fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<circle ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<circle " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<circle " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 8 ) ; "<circle fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<ellipse ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<ellipse " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<ellipse " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 9 ) ; "<ellipse fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<line ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<line " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<line " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 6 ) ; "<line fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<polygon ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<polygon " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<polygon " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 9 ) ; "<polygon fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<polyline ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<polyline " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<polyline " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 10 ) ; "<polyline fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ); //<text ~content=If (PatternCount ( ~content ; "<text " ) > 0 ; Substitute ( ~content ; Middle ( ~content ; Position ( ~content ; "<text " ; 1 ; 1 ) ; 6 ) ; "<text fill=\""&~color&"\" class=\"fm_fill\" " ) ; ~content ) ]; ~content )

    There is a file called permittedlist.txt. It is located in the /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Shared folder. This Library folder is normally hidden. To view it, go to Finder and open the Go menu while holding down the option key. The option key allows you to select the Library folder. Drill down to this file, permittedlist.txt and delete it. Or, to be ultra-cautious, just rename it. Now, when you try to upload a database to FM Server, it will alert you to any SSL certificate issues. When you choose to connect anyway, it will generate a new permittedlist.txt and it will allow you to freshly enter your FM Server admin name and password and upload the file.

    I'll counter that. One of our standards is to always an explicit "Exit Script" and to explicitly pass an empty string "" when no real value needs to be passed out of the script. The main reason is that the Get(ScriptResult) will remember the last explicit returned result. If you don't use Exit Script in the sub script but expect Get(ScriptResult) to be empty because you didn't pass anything back then you may be surprised to see a value if a previous script did use Exist Script with a return.

    Come to think of it, that's not entirely true. Suppose you add a field that cannot be empty (such as ClientID) into the portal and give it an object name. You could then use the GetLayoutObjectAttribute() function to get the object's content - and hide the portal when it's empty.

    I don't think playing 20 questions is a good method to get to the bottom of this. No one can tell why something fails without being able to reproduce the problem on their own first. The proper way to present this would be to attach the two files - preferably reduced to the absolute minimum that still shows the problem. Without this, all we can do is generalize and/or guess. In general, I can think of two possible reasons why records will not be imported: 1. There are no records to import; 2. There are records to import, but they do not pass validation. Now for the guess part: First, I don't know what you mean by "the autocomplete box on import". I am going to guess it's actually the "Perform auto-enter options while importing" option. And I am going to guess further that one or more of your fields is defined to auto-enter a value and validated as Not empty, Validate always. And I am going to guess that the source file contains no data to import into this field.

    Extra step: yes. Hassle: after a while it doesn't feel that way because that new Layout Object inspector brings so much goodness that you'll use it all the time anyway and it won' feel like a hassle to have to move over to it. It'll become a very natural flow of your layout design. But it definitely is a change and requires a bit of mental retraining and so there is a bit of 'who moved my cheese'. I certainly scoffed at it in the beginning, now I can think of all the bigger hassles I had to go through before having this.

    Not sure if "master list" = client cache. I've not heard that term. However, I've read that some are seeing bad data (outdated) because of cache! Several desperate posts on TechNet. https://community.filemaker.com/thread/168254 But good reviews here: https://blog.beezwax.net/2016/06/15/performance-optimizations-make-compelling-case-for-filemaker-15-upgrade/

    I doubt very much you need or want to do that. What would be the purpose of this? You will end up with several numbered Category fields. Numbered fields are a prime example of poor database structure. You won't be able to find a record by its category, unless you search all the fields. You won't be able to define a relationship matching on category. You won't be able to produce a report of records grouped by category. I suggest you either split the field into individual records in a related table or just substitute the > character with a carriage return, so that your field contains a list of the relevant categories (same as a checkbox field would).

    OK - I did it myself. Over a couple weekends of spare time, I wrote a few dozen scripts that interface between Filemaker and the Amazon Marketplace Web Service API. Sad to say, this is non-trivial. Amazon's documentation is poor: there are a surprising number of mistakes, misspellings, and obsolete/outdated sections. The one bright spot is the Amazon MWS Scratchpad, which provides a direct sandbox to allow testing different calls. Most of the documentation and online help is aimed at PHP & Java & Python developers; it's not too difficult to map this into Filemaker land. I wrote scripts to gather my orders from Amazon Market Place, and to send confirmations to buyers. Like most API's, there are many gotcha's. Here's a few hints, mainly to save time for others in my position. 1) A simple Filemaker WebViewer is *not* going to work, unless you do screen-scrapes from the Amazon MWS Scratchpad. 2) I used cURL to communicate with Amazon Web Service via POST. The information to be POSTed is the Amazon parameter string (which includes the hashed signature). The Monkeybread Software Filemaker functions (www.mbsplugins.eu) are just the ticket. 3) The outgoing information must be signed with a SHA256 hash. Again, this is available in the Monkeybread software functions. Use MBS("Hash.SHA256HMAC"; g_AWS_Secret_Key; g_AWS_Text_to_Sign_With_NewLines_Replaced; 1) 4) Getting the correct SHA256 signature requires very strict observance of line-feeds ... carriage return / linefeeds in OS X and Filemaker will cause a bad signature. Before making the SHA256 hash, do a complete replace so as to generate only Unix-style line-feeds. Within the "canonical parameter list" there aren't any linefeeds (but there are linefeeds before that list) 5) The Amazon API demands ISO-8601 timestamps, based on UTC. Filemaker timestamps are not ISO-8601, but there are several custom functions to generate these. The Filemaker function, get(CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds), is very useful, but its result must be converted into ISO-8601. Notice that Amazon UTC Timestamps have a trailing "Z" ... when I did not include this, the signatures failed. 6) The Amazon API must have url encoded strings (UTF-8). So the output from the SHA256 hash must be converted to URL encoding -- again, the Monkeybread software comes through (use MBS function Text.EncodeToURL) 7) The Amazon "canonical parameter list" must be in alphabetical order, and must include all of the items listed in the documentation. 8) Errors from Amazon throttling show up in the stock XML return, but check for other errors returned by the cURL debug response. At minimum, search through both responses by doing a filemaker PatternCount (g_returned_data; "ERROR") 9) When you're notified of a new Amazon order, you must make two (or more) cURL calls to Amazon MWS: 1) first, do cURL request to "list orders", which will return all the Amazon Order Numbers (and some other info) for each order since a given date/time. 2) Then, knowing an order number, you do another cURL to get all the details for a given order. Repeat this step for every new Amazon order number. Each of these calls requires your Amazon Seller_ID, Marketplace_ID, Developer_Account_Number,_Access_Key_ID, and your AWS_Secret_Key. Each also requires a SHA-256 hash of all this information along with the "canonical parameter list" If anyone wants my actual scripts, drop a note to me (At this moment, my scripts do the all-important /orders /list orders and /get order. I'm almost finished writing a /feeds filemaker API to send confirmations. I probably won't build scripts to manage inventory or subscriptions, but once you've built a framework for the scripts, it's not difficult to expand to more functionality) Best of luck all around, -Cliff Stoll

    For the most part people come to FM Forums seeking advice or assistance. If given a little thought, your topic can really engage the reader to want to assist you in finding the best answer or solution. Step 1: Choose Wisely! By first looking at the topical nature of the forums you can see there are many different forums that cover a wide range of discussions. By way of self-curating the site, try to choose a forum that covers the intent of your topic. We realize that some items cross boundaries and that is ok, just choose a forum that fits the spirit of your topic. If it's wrong a moderator will move it to a forum that best suits the conversation. Step 2: Titles, Names, & Tags Be terse but informative. With your topic title, encourage your reader to want to read your topic. Don't be needy or demanding with "please help" post titles. We realize you've hit a brick wall or may be very frustrated or have a demanding boss. But take a breath - it will be ok. Then compose a topic title that draws them in. Add a tag or two, they will appear next to the topic, it can just be a simple word or phrase that tags the post to some FileMaker-centric topic. Step 3: No Need for Apologies It is not necessary to start your post with an apology to the reader regarding where you are posting or your current understanding of a topic. We are pretty nice here and won't fault you for trying. Step 4: Prerequisite In order for your reader to provide the best response, make sure your profile has been updated with the platform and version of FileMaker that you are using. Otherwise we will assume you are using the most current versions, and the advice given may not work in older versions. If your post is specific to a version / platform / deployment please inform the reader — we don't necessarily need your computer specs, just enough background so that the reader can envision your environment. Step 5: Goals Stating your desired goals, and what you are attempting to achieve in a simple statement will aid the reader as they read further in to the details of your conversation. Step 6: What have you tried? Outline your process and steps you have taken, to get to you the point you are at. It doesn't have to be overly verbose, an essay isn't necessary. Step 7: Format for Emphasis Use the WYSIWYG editor to format text as needed to provide details. You can reference generic terms such as table::field or use your own nomenclature but if the context dictates provide the reader clarity what things may mean if they would not be apparent to someone outside your organization, or industry. this is code from a calculation bullets lists Step 8: Pictures & Sample Files Admit it, you know you miss Show & Tell from kindergarten. Re-live a past life by providing a screen image of your solution. Provide the reader information and context. Use third party tools to draw arrows on your image if needed. Can you send a clone of your solution? - If you do please make sure confidential data is removed, and your boss says it is ok. If you are modifying a commercial version of software that you have purchased — we request that you not do post a clone of these files; as that would be most likely against your terms of service. In that case you can make and post a sample file that recreates the issue you are having. Step 9: Cross Posting There are other venues on the internet that discuss FileMaker and many of our users are active participants of these resources. If you have already posted your question or topic on another site please copy the link and mention that your topic is a cross post this way others will know and may choose to review the threads and offer alternatives or not repeat a reply in both places. If you received your answer please report back here with a link to the response so that we all have a sense of closure. Step 10: A Sense of Humor Keep your sense of humor, and don't forget to smile. The site is visited by members of all skill levels, many are full time developers and consultants and generously volunteer their time and energy to the site. When the occasion calls for it give them your gratitude . A little levity never hurts. Also keep in mind that American English is not everyone's native language -- some things may not translate. If English is not your first language, just do your best. We really appreciate this! It gives us a little spring in our step.

    Hi Chris Your calculation is probably showing as 'Stored' if you look at it in the Manage->Database window. So FileMaker stores the result to make it indexable and quicker when you are performing a find or calculation based on it. However, because you are using Get ( CurrentDate ) in your calculation that stored value becomes out of date every day. FileMaker will re-evaluate the result when one of the other fields that are referenced changes (as you pointed out), but sadly FileMaker doesn't really notice that the result of Get ( CurrentDate ) has changed! To fix this, you need to make the result of the calculation 'unstored' (by clicking 'Options' in the Manage->database window for that field). This way FileMaker will re-evaluate the field whenever it is on screen or required for a find or whatever. The down side of this is that it will be slower to view and work with the result of the calculation, which can become a problem if you have a lot of records. Because you are using a 'Calculation' field-type, there is no real way to have both the performance of a stored result AND the convenience of the calculation field being always-updated. If this were my database, I would change it to be a 'Text' field, and use the 'Auto Enter Calculated Result' option, using exactly the same calculation as you have above. Then, I would have the database run a script on startup (once per day only) that set's the field correctly for todays date using the same calculation. FileMaker would handle any intra-day updates if any of the other fields referenced changed. You then have a 'stored' field, which gives you the best performance, and the result will always be correct. Make sure to uncheck the box that says 'Do not replace existing value of field (if any)' in Manage->Database->{yourField}->Options if you try this technique. Hope that helps, it's a common question, and the topic of different techniques for calculated fields is well-trodden on this forum!

    In case anyone is still not clear, let's say Master A has these script IDs/script names: 1 hello 2 goodbye Master B is a copy, so the same initially. Then I add a couple of scripts: 3 calculate pi 4 eat cake Then I delete script 2, so my script list in B is now : 1 hello 3 calculate pi 4 eat cake Now I copy 'eat cake' to Master A. The next sequential script ID is created automatically, so... it now looks like: 1 hello 2 goodbye 3 eat cake Still with me? So then I point my local file to Perform Script 'eat cake' in A, in other words, I'm pointing to script ID 3. Now I change my file reference to B. Now Perform Script still points to script ID 3, but it's a different script in B.

    Hi all Users are more frequently than ever requesting that custom reports be made. Up till now this has involved me creating layouts and scripts that can produce the data/reports in the form they want. I'm wondering if now it might be possible to let them take control of reporting in a way that is separate from the current database (which is heavy on GUI and disabling of features for ordinary users). I'm thinking of creating a totally new database which users would be able to completely edit from a design perspective, which would point to the main database as an external data source. However I would like it so that they would NOT be able to edit/create/delete those external records. I've had a play with it and can't seem to get it to work (we're using external authentication via windows server active directory). Is such a thing possible? Many thanks

    That seems like an extremely odd reason to move away from FileMaker Server. Scheduled backups are one of its prime, easiest to use features. FileMaker Server can make backups for you; including full backups; and clones.

    There is no Rank() function in Filemaker. You can calculate rank on your own. The exact method depends on whether you want to calculate the rank based on the found set or the entire table, and a few other factors (e.g. ascending or descending). The attached file shows how you can calculate rank based on the found set, descending. Note that duplicates are ranked the same, and the corresponding ranks are skipped. Records do not need to be sorted. Requires version 16. Rank_v16.fmp12

    Hi, I'm Nick Hunter developer at RCC who designed the new FMSP. There's only one way to tweak Tab Control height. There is 2 type of Tabs: The Tab Control in Themes for Desktop Tab control in Themes for Touch. Tabs for Desktop are "thin" when tabs for touch are twice as big. How to transfer thick tabs control from a Touch Theme to a desktop theme? 1- Create a layout with the theme of your choice for Touch. 2 - Create a Tab Control 3 - Copy the Tab Control Tab from the theme for touch. 4 - Go to the layout with the theme for Desktop 5 - Create a Tab Control 6 - Paste the style to the Tab Control... The tab becomes like the one for Touch. 7- Save a new Style... and Voilà. You have now both Tab Control in the same layout.

    Yes, and I also should mention, for others reading even if not your situation ... hard-coding values normally isn't a good approach. If those names will be used as record data or elsewhere, it might be worth it to store the part names in a table with only a unique auto-enter serial number and referencing its text from the relationship in the tooltip instead. Anyway, I can tend to overthink but I thought it good to mention the dangers of hard-coding values. I envisioned this might be the only place you would need to change the name but if the scientists decided that a cuello should really be properly named a cou and you had used cuello all through your solution, it would require a substantial cleanup whereas if the parts were in a table, you would just change it in one place and use its Serial all through your solution.

    You can redirect a user into a webd session with an html page with a little javascript like so... <form id="myForm" action="https://your_host_name/fmi/webd/YourFile" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="user" value="yourUser" /> <input type="hidden" name="pwd" value="yourPwd" /> </form> <script type="text/javascript"> document.getElementById('myForm').submit(); </script> However, I would only use this to enable guest type access to a hosted file, and this is not really that secure, even if you have SSL enabled since the credentials are in the html. I have yet to find a way to redirect using POST, so for now, I would use with caution. Mike

    Cross-post with https://community.filemaker.com/thread/175457 (It's ok to cross-post but it is good form to indicate your post as such since a lot of the people on both forums are the same)

    That probably depends on their specific policies. One should note that FileMaker Server 16 can now generate PDF files, so one could probably do this in WebDirect using the "Perform Script on Server" command, and avoid needing a second "robot" user altogether.

    I'll echo that. I started doing that, and it has made it so much easier to make the switch. It's easy, and I do it with almost all software that is a trial.

    I wouldn't say that. There are lots of things that repeating fields do that repeating variables don't. For example, List ( RepeatingField ) returns a list of values in all non-empty repetitions of the field. OTOH, List ( $repeatingVariable ) returns ... well, nothing particularly useful. In fact, there is nothing "repeating" about repeating variables: each repetition is a completely independent variable with nothing in common with the other repetitions except the first part of the variable name.
