  1. UPDATE: I was using the wrong path. My bad. It works. Doesn't move but copies so I then delete it after moving. I'm trying to move a file that is in the Root (so the path is just the file name) to a folder in Root called "Moved". When I use FTPEEK_Rename with (" filename.pdf";"/Moved/filename.pdf") it deletes the file and it never appears in Moved. I tried this and (" filename.pdf";"Moved/filename.pdf") and same thing. Any suggestions? Using FMP 19 on MacOS 10.14
  2. I have been able to download files to a local directory. But I can't seem to have it download to a mounted directory. Is there a path syntax for a mounted volume? I've tried "filemac://Volumes/ShareName/FirstFolder/File.txt" and "/Volumes/ShareName/FirstFolder/File.txt" and "filemac://ShareName/FirstFolder/File.txt" and "/ShareName/FirstFolder/File.txt" ------- all generate an error. Can you write to a remote volume or do you have to download locally then move the file remotely? Using Mac OS 10.14.6, FMP
  3. I have successfully captured the list of files on the remote server. I loop thru them and can grab the moddate and then download the files successfully. But one file, even through it successfullly provides the moddate and downloads, it errors when using getfileinfo "file info" to the the file's size. I use the FTPeek_SetErrorCapture to keep from hanging on the error. But it says the file doesn't exist but yet the step finds the moddate and then successfuilly downloads it. The file does exist but what causes the error? This is one file out of 41 files. It doesn't appear to be any different, oth
  4. I have a solution that syncs at the end of a "shift". The shift report says what happened during the shift. But I want to add a time card component that syncs when anyone starts work and ends work which doesn't always match the "shift" that one or two guards are covering. So, I want to keep the main Sync with Server script intact for the end of shift report but I want to dupe it, rename it and hardcode it to sync one or maybe 2 tables only. Since there will be only 1 or 2 records it should be fast. That way the timecards are always up to date and the shift reports are sent as a whole.
  5. Hopefully the record would never be duplicated. Leaving it checked I think is the best course for now. I'll just make sure any duplications are handled through a script that would gen a new UUID. With the users unable to use any of the menus I hope they won't find a way to dupe a record.
  6. thanks. The weird part is I've never noticed it and found that in some other solutions I've used this half are checked and some are not but they seemed to work. But tonight I'm adding Fmeasysync to a new solution and I can't get more than 1 record to sync from any table. I only get the last record. I've gone over the TO's. I guess I need to double check the payload layout next. Thanks, Dan Actually it was the payload layout. The portal was blank. I must have copied the layout prior to finishing up the TOs.
  7. The instructions say the easiest way to add the 5 ES_fields to each table is to simply copy and paste from the Demo database. I realized tonight that in one Table, "Surveys", the ES_Recod_UUID has the AutoEnter set to "Do not replace existing value of field if any" checked. But the other 2 tables, Survey_Hobbies and Survey_Documents do not have it checked. This is in both the Hosted and Mobile files. Which is correct? The instructions just mention unchecking it on US_UTC_Time. Dan
  8. Thanks. I'm noodling over it and think it will work. I think combining it with a script that will flag the exclude files will solve my problem. Basically I need 30 files out of 1500 and with the exclude flag set on 1470 of them and and resetting the other flags then I might have my solution. Shame Tim took down all the troubleshooting documents. Luckily I printed out the install docs. Wish I had printed the troubleshooting stuff. Thanks.
  9. I've had pretty good success using FMEasySync with pushing. I've got multiple users in the field pushing in records everyday. No problem. The issue I have is that there are some inspection records that everyone needs to get back to their Mobile. Each user is doing a monthly inspection. They need to have the record from the previous inspection to calculate how many "cycles" have occurred since the last inspection. It's never the same person going back. The issue I have had is that when Pushing from the server not everyone gets the necessary records. It seems like only those to created the origi
  10. Is there a method to exclude a specific field from the sync process? I assume that EasySync always excludes calc and summaries and probably globals (does it exclude globals?) and only lets through numbers, text, dates, times and containers etc. If there are some trigger fields on the mobile solution that have no bearing on the hosted files is there a way to tell the syncing process to ignore a field so that you don't have to add that structure on the host file? Thanks.
  11. I can't seem to find a clear definition of the term reset in the documentation so far. If you mean to reset the Device ID on the host, I find that the replace contents, as per the hosted demo database, is set to auto replace the DeviceID with the device that is touching it so I can't see any way of resetting it with the same device. Or do you mean reset it from the iPad I'm trying to sync? Has any attempted a document that compiles the bits and pieces on settings etc that are scattered through the website and the forums? Everything links back to the FAQ, troubleshooting and the Setup (and the
  12. Okay. I found another laptop that has FMP on it. I Changed the DeviceID on the records and it now works. What I don't understand is why another device, such as my iPad, prior to my changing the device ID, couldn't pull them. That has a different ID. It had an empty database and no records in it. I get the gist of why you want to avoid roundtripping but the new device simply wants to upload, which is the step after you push when there is no chance of roundtripping. (As I understand it always pushes then pulls). What am I missing here?
  13. I've had to reverse engineer other sync solutions and have installed a couple GoZyncs with no problem. This is my first attempt at using EasySync. Broke my solution into 2 files pulled in everything as the instructions say and got it to work. I then started cleaning up my 2 new files so that one was more "mobile" and the other more "server." (different layouts and navigation). Now nothing works. I can get new files to push from Mobile but I can't get anything to Pull from server. New or old. I have an empty mobile file and want all the server files on mobile. I turned on debugging and if I r
  14. I sort of agree. I too see the full path on a Mac but I'm also seeing it on on Windows Server 2008 R2 (I'm running a script from FMSA12). I'm capturing the lists in a non-global field so I can see the results. So to get around it I tried to do a substitute (get(documentsPath)) and strip out the path. But the problem with that is that the plugin is returning the path with backward slashes and lacks a beginning slash. The Get(DocumentsPath) is returning the path with forward slashes and a starting slash. So before I can strip out the path and get just the file name I have to reverse the slashes
