  1. Mac mini is hosting FMS10 on OSX server. Issue is with installation of FM10 on to a new MacBook Pro with OS 10.8 After installing FM10 on the MacBook Could not see the host so I assumed it was the issue with the date/time not matching. So I uninstalled FM10 set the date to before Sept 2008 (april 2002) then reinstalled FM10. Now I see the host but not the hosted files. After looking at my old notes I see that I should have deleted the Perfs file. My instructions for deleting the perfs file do not match the new OS 10.8 (Library/Preferences/ Filemaker perfs). Nothing matches Filemaker in the
  2. tdaumit, Configure your barcode reader to put a return after barcode scans. Then set the field to advance with return, create a trigger after field exit script that sets a variable of the field contents then finds the matching record or if none found create new record setting the field with the variable. Then your are ready to add the other information in the new record or edit the existing found record. Depending on what you are trying to do, there may be a better way to write the script. Set Variable [$scan; table::fieldname] Perform Find(fieldname; $scan) If[get(foundcount)]
  3. "I have started to develop a solution for this but it seems like it may be over my head. I was wondering if anyone either knows of a comparable solution already available, or if anyone knows how much something like this might cost to develop... I would also like to have a hand in the development, so I can further my filemaker skills. " With 25 years of Retailing and and about 5 years of developing FMP solutions, I like most developers started out just like you are doing. My advice to you is to find a developer who like myself has a history with retail and get the system built prof
  4. You have convinced me. I will work move selections as you said. Thanks so much for your patience and help.
  5. an entry in one of the eight fields would trigger the spot to be claimed. If I could get the drop down list to show the unclaimed spots my issue would be solved. Joe reserved spots which happened to make up a table. Spots are what is being tracked. Other venues will have varying spots(seats). I already have the script to create the spots(seats) to each venue's needs. Events are identified by an id created when an event is created. I have a table for events, attendees, Spots and reservations. I hope this clears up any confusion. I do appreciated your looking at this.
  6. Making more than one spot reservation would be accomplished by adding 7 more fields that each would trigger the Spot records to show that the spot was taken. But one or eight are dependent on the drop down value list only showing the available spot numbers. I looked at the example. I could not get it work. I can get the spot number to appear in the drop down with the availability status but can not get the drop down list to show only the available spot numbers. If I try to use a calculation field as the drop down list an error comes up that it won't work. and if I try related record it re
  7. They can have more than one spot, but hardly ever would it be more than 6. A record would represent one party reserving spots. Thanks for looking at this,
  8. Sorry I missed your reply, I did not have the email notification checked. Each party selects a spot off of the floor reservation table(layout). When a spot is taken (reserved) by a client the spot table records the reservation by changing the yes in the available field to no and another field performs a calculation which replaces the spot number with a "". In the floor reservation table(layout) I need for the drop down value list to only show available spots. Ed I tried to attach the file clone but here are tiffs, site does not allow the posting of fp7 files

  10. From a table called"floor" I need to be able to have a drop down value list that shows the remaining spots available to claim. The other table called "spots" has a fixed number of records that are numbered 1 through 36. As the spots are selected from "floor" I have two calculation fields, one changes a yes to no once the spot is claimed. The other replaces the spot number with a "". I tried several relationship combinations with no success. If I use one of the fields for the drop down that are a calculation I get a warning that the function won't work because the field uses a related,
  11. It worked except the first record did not show its number (1). So I changed the > to ≥ in the relationship and took off the +1 in the field calculation. It works great, again thanks a million! Ed
  12. Your right : I give it a shot. Thanks so much for your quick response.
  13. No particular order, as entered. I am trying to stay away from a script.
  14. Thought this would be simple, but I'm stuck. Thanks for your help! I need to give the first number of items, say 2, at no cost. I have that number(2) in a field "no_free". The result should be that the price will be 0.00 for items one and two and the next item, no matter how many more, will be at regular price. What I am trying to do is: free_or_not calculation field is defined as If(the progressive record count w/the same invoice_id ≤ no_free; 0; 1) In the price calculation this field results "free_or_not" is used as a multiplier that keeps or zeros the price.
