  1. What I did: CREATED A CLONE After that: Proceeded to import from original DB to Clone Import summary Message: "total records skipped due to errors : such and such" I am not able to import all records into the clone. WHY? IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE? I have already tried the validation fields... by the way Thanks!!!
  2. Simply put. You want each record to recognized that a field is not allowed to remain empty. You check that field under "not empy" in the validation option. Then, you hit "New Record". It doesn't even allow you to go to the layout where the field is, that you immediately get this messages that the field needs to have information....but....?#@%@$? There seems to be an out of time reaction to the validation and mostly a choose not to put this restrictions......but many times they are needed... So the only way is to create a script? and if so: Why the validation options?
  3. Thank you, I will try that but something is missing in the concept of a having a field validated. Thx a million anyway!
  4. I can't get around that every time I want to use a field validation It is triggered at the beginning and not at the end of a new record. I want the validation to be triggered when I want to create another record or simply before I quit, so that the field is filled with the information intended for that field. This validation issue is quite an issue for me. I'll appreciate any help on this.Thank you
  5. I JUST FOUND THE REASON FOR THE ABOVE, SO I AM ANSWERING THIS ISSUE TO MYSELF SINCE MAYBE SOMEONE CAN ENCOUNTER SAME PROBLEM. THE ISSUE IS CREATED WHEN YOU SET THE FORMAT STYLE OPTION AS "UPPERCASE". ONCE YOU CHOOSE EITHER OF THE OTHER OPTIONS, THE FIELD DISPLAYS THE RIGHT SENTENCE AS INTENDED IN THE VALUE LIST AND THE PROBLEM IS GONE. HEY... I AM GETTING BETTER!
  6. I can't understand why a field that displays a value list as a radio button does not show all the characters of each item in that list? I would greatly appreciate if some one has an idea. Thanks
  7. I have been trying to come out with a summary field that totals i.e. "total amount owed" from another file or database. I could script it, copy and paste, but since files are related I just wanted to know if there is anyone that has tried to do this before. thanks in advance
  8. I'll try that. Thank you Mr. Smith!
  9. I am almost at 30K records in only one file. That is about 10 years wking with the same database upgrading it up to this version. Problem: It seems that is getting slow specially if I need to duplicate a record or run a little complicated script. I never mess with memory settings cause it gave me problems in the past...(kinda when you burn y/self with milk you see a cow and begin to cry...)I recognize that is stupid of me, but really never had a need after all until now that I feel something needs to be done with speed. Any suggestions?
  10. For smart people out there: Is there any reason why it used to be so easy to relate tables and not being at risk of going crazy if by mistake you touch the wrong path? All of my fields went "". Thank God for back ups' cause I spent hours trying to figure out how or what I did to years of work!. I suspect filemaker pro drew a line from FM7 on. I love FM, but it looks like certain things don't make sense to me, i.e you grab 3 related files working smoothly, just terrific relationships (HEY, all done by me!), then you are so happy that decision is made to use the same files with a different
  11. Look guys, I am new to the forum and did not want to offend anyone. I just wanted to greet in the language I thought soren was native and because he tried to help me as others, but I spotted him being from dmk. Greeting in other languages is being cordial and opened to other cultures. This how I learned english ( I think so) because I admire the culture. The same with portuguese. I am native in spanish and if there are rules in regards to languages I hope there will be consideration to maintain greetings multicultural. Buenas noches a todos y muchas gracias! ND
  12. Jeg læser du og jeg vil se på linket for. Tak ND
  13. Hey yall: I will really need to learn communication skills in the future to make myself better understood. Is sooooo frustrating when you explain something and discover that you are not clear to others!. For that I must apologize and really thank you for your effort. Hopefully, in the future I 'll try better ways... As I intended to explain, I found that the calculation worked but it needed some sort of refreshing in order to display new results when produced in the portal. I just figured that by turning indexing off and checked off the "do not evaluate if all reference fields are empty" box
