  1. I just came across this issue and was using FileMaker 10 and 11. I have a simple database setup to record billing information and when I went to do a billing report, a simple find, one of my records for the given criteria was not coming up in the found set. I searched for a specific date range and a record within that range did not come up. I even tried searching for just that record and that fails. I've duplicated the record and the newly duplicated record act the same way. I used the recover option and recovered the database and although it didn't come up with any errors the record now
  2. I have a solution that tracks client visits so there are multiple client records (the same client ID). In a report format I need to be able to list the clients only once, which I can do with a sub summary part, but I also need to be able to count the clients and only count like clients once. Example: I have 5 clients with ID 1234, 5 with ID 1111, 2 with 1212 and 1 with 4444. With them all listed in a report sub summary I only see them once, but the count and summary count all occurrences of all clients. Using a count and count summary field I get 13 and I want 4. Any ideas how to do t
  3. Thanks so much for the back and forth. I'll give it a try.
  4. I think our tech advisers wanted to see 128 bit hash and because it was available in MD5 we started using it. Like I said, we're using it now, but just need it out of the plug-in and into a function.
  5. I'm sorry, we were talking about two different functions. I was talking about the one on this site:http://www.unwwwired.net/projects/md5 You were talking about the FNV1a function, sorry. I really need to step it up to MD5 128 bit
  6. There's definitly a limit on how much text it will hash. the field being hashed contains the following: asdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddaaa and produces the following hash 900150983cd24fb0d6963f7d28e17f72 If I add a character: asdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgddddddddd
  7. I am looking for the MD5 hash, the reading I was doing separated out hash functions based on cryptographic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptographic_hash_function) Wow, you wrote it, nice job. I actually started to use that, but ran into an issue because the function was limited on the amount of text it could hash. If there's a way to increase that my problem will be solved. Right now it can only fit (asdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddddddddddddddddddasdfgdddddddd
  8. yeah, I found the unwired MD5 hash site by Brent Faulkner too. Unfortunately, his hash function only allows limited data, like 100 characters. I need much more than that.
  9. Brian's site has a fnv1a hash function, but I'm looking for 128 bit cryptographic hash like MD5 and SHA. I really need a filemaker function that creates an MD5 or SHA hash string.
  10. That's exactly what I'm trying to find out. If there is a MD5 hash or sha-1 hash that doesn't require a plugin that can handle large amounts of text to be hashed.
  11. the hash has to be done at the time of create the record, which is a service note that staff applies their electronic signature to. Not sure what you mean by queue requests. Staff access the FM solution realtime.
  12. I've been using scriptmaster plug-in for a while now with the auto update feature installed on my FileMaker Server. I'm using the MD5 hash module within scriptmaster for an electronic signatures filemaker solution I developed. Works great with the Filemaker client on desktops, downloads the plug-in on the client machine and registers the scriptmaster libraries perfect. The problem is we want to move to using iPads to access the Filemaker solution and obviously the plug-in doesn't work with the iPad. We need to the plug-in and scriptmaster in order to generate the hash for signatures.
