    Converting FMP5 to 16

    Thats what I'm doing now. Once I was able to find a link to a windows version of 11 I was home free. Installation just finished! :-) Jason

    Converting FMP5 to 16

    I found a link to older TRIAL versions of FIleMaker (not updaters). http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10571 Jason Setting back the clock/date does not work by the way.
  3. I am converting a few simple FMP5 databases to Fm16. I have already converted these databases and know how to do it...but I have run into some other snags that I need some help with. I had downloaded a trial of FMP11 on to my Mac (latest OS) to convert the files to FM7. Then I converted the FM7 files to FMP16 on my PC w/ Win10. Worked great ! However, teh team I was doing teh conversion for was too busy to let me migrate them to the server so I waited for them. They are now ready for the switch over and my FMP11 trial has EXPIRED!! Reinstalling FMP11 on the Mac will not allow me to restart the trial (no surprise). I tried to get a trial of FMP11 for the PC but I can not find a download link!!! The FileMaker site only appears to have "updaters". Can anyone provide a link to a version of FileMaker that I can run in trial to do the conversion??? Mac or PC Thanks! Jason

    How to do Montly backups

    Resolved. I knew it had to be something ridiculous. The window displaying the shedule settings was too short. When I chose "Every n days", I could not see the additional field appear at the bottom for entering the actual number of days. The simplest things can be the most maddening :-P
  5. I'm setting up scheduled backups on Fm Server 16 and I'm trying to create a monthly backup schedule with the "Every N Days" option. However, it does not give a way to define what "n" equals !?! How can I setup a monthly backup schedule? (I already have daily backups working) Jason
  6. I have a report that is not behaving the way I want it to and I'm not sure why. I have 4 tables that are all related to each other: Tutor -> TutorCourse -> Course -> ProgramArea "Tutor" contains the fields: TutorID FirstName LastName Email TutorStatus (active or inactive) "TutorCourse" contains the fields: TutorID CourseID TC_ID CourseStatus (active or inactive) "Course" contains the fields: CourseID ProgramArea "ProgramArea"contains the fields: PA_ID ProgramArea (There are more fields in each table but for brevity I have only shown the ones I use in the report.) The REPORT I am trying to display: -All tutors in a specific ProgramArea -Where Tutor::TutorStatus is "active" -Where TutorCourse::CourseStatus is "active" -where Course::ProgramArea is the ProgramArea specified by the user. My report layout is set to use the "Tutor" table. My results get: -All the relevant tutors without duplicates (this is what I want) -Only Active Tutors (this is what I want) -"Most" of the records have the correct "Course::ProgramArea" but some display a different one despite the Find specifying a specific one. -"Most" of the records have the correct "TutorCourse::CourseStatus" but some display "inactive" despite the Find specifying "Active". Why is my report not working and how can I fix it? Thank you!! Jason

    Cursor in Field locking records

    Ahha! That makes perfect sense. I know how to fix things up now. Thanks !
  8. I have a multi user db and I'm finding that people are locking records b/c they are leaving the cursor in a field after doing a specific task. Is there a way to script all fields to have NO focus after a task is complete? I have tried to change focus to other objects on the screen, like a button, that do not use a cursor but the file remains locked. Any thoughts? Jason

    Remote File Upload and Download

    If I was recording directly to a container in FMGO, does FMGO store the data until recording is finished then upload it to the server? OR is it streaming it to the server as it is recorded? The recordings I do could be 2 to 2.5 hours in length. The device would have plenty of storage for that but if it was streaming the data, intermittent bandwidth fluctuations could be a problem. The audio is client data. It can't be lost.

    Remote File Upload and Download

    If I was uploading a file from an iPad, where would FIleMaker Go or WebDirect be able to find it? In other words, if I recorded an audio file in say iTalk, could I get at that file to upload it?
  11. I'm trying to find out if its possible to create a web based FileMaker 13 solution (WebDirect) where I can remotely upload files to the db and someone else can remotely download those files. All the reading that I have been doing with regards to WebDirect doesn't touch on containers at all. Is this scenario possible and what would be the basics of making it happen (how to initiate an upload or downlaod, contain setup, etc) Jason

    Pie Chart from Yes/No data in one field

    OK..Awesome ! I kept wanting to put the data (my Yes/No responses) into the Value Data area. I also had a weird glitch with my report where it was not summarizing even though it was sorted. It would only show one record in the Body part and I had to scroll to see each record. I deleted that report and made a new one and that fixed that. Placing the chart in the Header and following your instructions have created a working chart :-) Thanks again !!
  13. I'm trying to create a Pie chart that shows how many "Yes" and how many "No" responses I have in my data. The value of Yes or No is in ONE field across 72 records When I make the chart I get 72 slices (there are 72 records). I appears that I need to summarize the data to have two totals: Yes's and No's. I tried to make a Summary field to do this but how do I express 2 different values? I wrote a script that totals the Yes and the No values into two global variable but I can't assign two values to the Pie chart. I'm missing something easy here....Help ! Jason

    Help with Self-Join needed

    I'm still having problems implementing this. I have the Student part (portal and TO) working. I understand that. However, the Mentor part is confusing. Just to clarify the requirements: -a Mentor can have Many Students -A student can have ONE Mentor -A Mentor can NOT be a Student Looking at your example, the Person to Person>>Mentor relationship does not create records so why have the TO at all?

    Help with Self-Join needed

    I'm trying to add a portal to my PEOPLE layout that shows a Person's MENTOR. The Mentors exist in the PEOPLE table just as those they mentor do. So when I go to the PEOPLE layout, I want to see the person's information and a portal that contains their mentor. Also, when a Mentor's record is viewed, I need to see all the people they Mentor in the portal. Would this require 2 portals? Creating the layout and portal are not the issue. I need to know how to properly create the relationship for this scenario. It seems straight forward that a Self-Join is needed but I'm not sure how to setup the key fields and the join itself to make this work. Thanks !
