  1. Hello, we have filemaker server 18 hosted on windows server 2012, the server is connected to an APC ups thats keeps the server running for 40 minutes when power is loss, after power is loss we have to manually close the databases and stop the FM server , then we shutdown the windows server .... i would like to know if there is an automated command that close the databases and stop FM server when power loss is detected?
  2. Steve thanks for your reply I put the Print Setup [Restore ; With Dialog: On] because even I setup the printer and the paper and then choose off the setup changes, so I turn it on to always select the printer and the paper. can you explain me more about a subscript for each type of printing? thanks
  3. Hello, I have a database that use different printers - DYMO FOR SHIPPING LABELS - BROTHER LASER FOR LETTER SIZE - IMPACT PRINTER TO PRINT AN SPECIAL FORM. each printer has a script with PRINT SETUP WITH NO DIALOG, ( I choose the printer and the paper size) and PRINT ( I choose the printer again) the problem is when I print with DYMO printer and then print with the BROTHER printer, the BROTHER prints with the DYMO paper size or vice verse, so I have to setup the PRINT SETUP step with dialog to choose the printer and paper size again, every time I send to a new printer I have to configure the printer and paper size. my question is, there is any script with NO DIALOGS to setup each printer and just press the button and print with no questions? this is the script for the DYMO: this is for the BROTHER: when I press the print button for the brother I got this: please let me know if there is any solution for this thank you

  9. hello, I have a field in my database, the field is set as currency. Now we are having a problem when insert the prices: 1. we insert the price with the dot, as the image shows 2. when we click outside the field we get the number in thousands (not as we introduce it), as the image shows. 3. then we go to the field and change the dot for a comma, as the image shows. 4. then we click outside the field and we get the right value, ( filemaker replace the comma for a dot), as the image shows please let me know how to fix this? right now we have to introduce the prices with commas to get the right value. thank you very much
