  1. Hi there - I need to create a simple crosstab report and wondered if filemaker 17 has this functionality built in ? If not can somebody point me in the right direction on this please. It would be very much appreciated. Also once ive created a series of reports how can i combine them so they appear at the press of a button in a single document ? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Lookup list

    Hi there I have a single table which lists all of the schools in an area. All I want to do is create a lookup list which brings back all the relevant data against a school when a particular school is selected. I can do this in seconds in access but after two hours trying I give up in filemaker. Can somebody please help as its getting a bit ridiculous for such a simple task. Many thanks Peter
  3. thanks so much for the reply. When i run this it says "container fields cannot be exported" These are pictures im taking my ipad and appear on the database. I havent imported them. I read somewhere that all images have to be embedded what ever that means ? Thanks Peter or even if i could store the images i take with my ipad in the photo directory so i could upload them manually when i get back to the office. Its just at the moment im taking pictures with the ipad and i cant get them off the ipad ? Very frustrating ! Peter

For example within the address field i simply want the description address until the user enters the field and then it disappears. Ive seen this on many dastabases and havent a clue how to do it in filemaker ? Any help would be much appreciated ! Thanks Peter
  7. Hi Guys Ive developed a database to collect site based information of properties. The database allows the user to take photos of buildings and record various data about the buildings. The database workls fine but i now need to export the data. Firstly - can i export the pictures within the container fields ? Secondly - how do i get the data out of filemaker go and onto my local machine. Can i simply save from my ipad to a folder on my local machine ? Any help given would be much appreciated. Thanks Peter
