  1. Thanks, Fitch...ok, so probably the same with Customers and Vendors, too? Just one table, but use a "type" field (c or v)... Then I'm still trying to wrap my head around the use of Layouts, Portals and Scripts...and I tend to be a visual learner (I haven't found many 'good' how to's on youtube yet...). For instance, the process of taking an ORDER, I'd like it to be broken into smaller layouts (for ease of the UX) to achieve a complete order: 1) "Type of order..." [Order::OrderTYPE (radio buttons)], [Order::OrderTIME_IN (auto-timestamp)], THEN goes to layout based on radio button c
  2. Ok, before I keep chasing my tail and without signing up for 4 years of academics on db's...here's what I want to achieve:  Food Ordering System ==================  1) Cashier/Order screen/layout  2) Food Prep screen/layout  3) Delivery screen/layout  Which would work like this: Order is taken, THEN said order is displayed/formatted for Prep, THEN/IF an Order is a Delivery it is displayed/formatted for that screen. (BTW, these 3 stations will be iPad-driven with, I believe at this point, an mac mini for the 'base')  So what's my question...?  I'd like seasoned vie
  3. I appreciate all the replies...this has been the best forum for help so far! Thanks Chris, Lee, Rick! I guess I could have mentioned I wasn't concerned about country codes, but good to know how to handle them anyways Chris, Works like a charm!
  4. Ok, I found this calculation for validating a phone number when it get entered for desired formatting--(330) 555-1234. This works. The problem is that it inserts the error message into the field (as it should according to the script...) when incorrect number of numbers (say that again) is entered--012, 012345678901, etc., so I would like to have an error dialog box pop up instead...how do I go about doing that? AS IS NOW: Case(Length(CustomerPHONE) = 7;Left(CustomerPHONE;3) & "-" & Right(CustomerPHONE;4); (Length(CustomerPHONE) = 10); "(" & Left(CustomerPHONE;3) &
  5. Thanks, Jeremy! So my 'plan B' is to setup a mac mini as the 'base'...do I 'need' Server or can I get away with just another copy of FMP? [EDIT: I answered my question once I loaded FMP GO ] The trick is I'm trying to keep shore line power needs to a minimum (doesn't affect wether Server or not), so mac mini (no display/kb unless needed...).
  6. Ok, before I burn thru lots of time (as I've already spent a couple hours...), I was hoping someone may KNOW if you can do peer-to-peer between iPads (3 is the goal) on a closed wifi network (no internet connection)...? AND, if so, could I set it up so that at each iPad a user can log in to show only certain layouts...? Basically, I'm aiming for a mobilized menu/prep ordering system: Cashier + Order Prep Queue + Delivery Queue TIA for any insights
  7. eoneon123, Â Did you find a solution? Â I was looking for advice for my project and this seemed similiar...I think? Â Attached image. Â Â
  8. Thanks for the file, Paavo...now I'll see how to incorporate it into the 'big picture'
  9. I'm coming up with questions on an hourly basis it seems...I've done google searches and still can't seem to find answers, but sometimes asking the right question is the hardest chore. Â Ok, I want to have an concession stand customer ordering system and this made sense "to me" in my graphical way of thinking, HA!: Â I have layouts for each step, such as... Â [step 1] "Select order type..." (OrderTYPE is a field with Value List to choose from via radio buttons: Walk-Up, Delivery, Pick-Up). Â I then made a 'NEXT' button that I thought I'd send to the corresponding Layout calculated by
  10. Ok, BIG newbie. I'm trying to wrap my mind around how to have an item made up of a combination of items, ie: (hot dog + drink + chips; chips + drink; breakfast burrito + drink; etc...or even Hot Dog + Hot Dog + Chips + Drink) What I have are tables with the item categories (easy to keep straight "to me"), such as Hot Dogs, Toppings, Drinks, etc...so I could have a table Specials that would have a line item made up of the combinations. Hope this is making some sense. This is what I have so far (just making tables that make sense "to me" at this point...any advice is appreciated)
