  1. Hi I have a script that duplicates everything in a record into a new one. It copies everything over, including three of the portals (character, featured and SPACT), but will not copy over the specialist portal. It copies it and sticks it listed in the character portal field but also gives it a 0. the specialist portal is one I have added on and I thought I had added all the correct info into the script. The script is called duplicate scene. and the info I added in was: line 8 in the specified export order so all the same field options for specialis
  2. Hi I was trying to adjust the the script I had that generates a report by selected dates. I wanted it to automatically genenertae the PDF then email it out to a set email address with just the touch of a button with the script. When I use the file in Filemaker GO app I this is what I do and would like it to do (I cannot tell on my phone which version of filmmaker go I am using, I just know it is the green app coloured one) In the Timesheet layout it opens on. I have inputed all the info needed for that day, then click on email to office, a pop up window appears an
  3. Hi I removed the sub summary as yes agree that does nothing. The script is what came with the FM start point 17 template. I just wanted to use rates paid rather then items. that might be why the script might seem to complicated for it? I see what you mean by the taking it out of preview mode sort then back into preview mode, but I was hoping to avoid adding in extra steps, esp as the person who will be generating the invoices is not the best at lots of steps, so was trying to make the process as simple as possible. if I add it into the script, can it take
  4. Hi When you go into the invoice tab and select print it generates a report for that invoice. I am trying to make it so that it displays then in date order. I can of course make it display in date order in the portal but that doesn't affect the report. which is a problem if I forget something on a certain date and want to add it in, it will display it at the end of the invoice lines. I tried adding in a sub summary part by Qdate worked but it will not display. I made it red to see if it displayed anything, but it will only display items in the body. I tried adding
  5. Hi I am using FM Quickstart V17 and have been adjusting the invoice part to work for invoicing rates of things rather then a product. I want it so I can add a date to the added rate ( in the invoice tab), when you click on add rate you can select a rate. but what I need to be able to do is assign a date to that rate so they know what days worked. I tried adding in a date field and that didn't work, then I tried adjusting the SKU that was already there into a drop down calender, but as soon as you adjust and select a date, the whole row disappears. Am I trying to do something t
  6. Hi attached are two images the first is how the report currently shows.. total characters per a scene as a list. the second image shows what I would like.. you can see in one scene the number of grooms is 2 and one is 3 needed .. so it lists the total grooms for the day is 3. the unit total currently works out the total of each character as the highest number and adds them all together. hope this image helps more
  7. Hi no sorry wasn't sure if I explained it very well. if say you click on the report button then in t popup click on the middle report button.. you will see it shows each scene to shoot for that day. and under each scene lists the characters needed on the right and the to the left of the list shows the scene total. What I would like it to calculate is the total for each different character / featured extra military character etc. So for example I would like it to show 15th May so work out every type of character in on that date (not b
  8. Hi I am struggling to work out how to get my database to generate a report that shows the total characters for that day and not broken up by scenes. So it will show this is the total characters from the character field for that day from all the scenes. When you go on to the database. username admin password pirates it opens on the list layout. if you click on scenes then click on the report button for all units (the middle one) it will each scene for that day and the characters for that scene. What I am trying to do is get it to show all the uniqu
  9. Hi Tom I was wondering if I could call up on your offer of help on the other part I was trying to sort out you mentioned you might be able to? I might just need a little point in the right direction. The person I paid to help with the database recoded it a while ago and forgot to put a feature back into it and I have only just seen it is missing. He seems to have gone AWOL so I am trying to see if I can add it back in myself. I can see how he did it in the original database, but not how I can do it in the new one. If you think you wouldn't mind maybe looking and pointing
  10. Thank you.. I was thinking of updating to version 16 so maybe this will be the push so I can try the card window system.... thank you for all the links above, that's really kind. I did think it might be the case of building a calendar and would be a tough one for me, but going to at least give it a go...
  11. Hi I have a. database that stores Artist's details and I wanted to be able to select dates they are booked for, but wondered if it is possible to have a calendar or something where you select several dates and they most likely will not be a range of dates that are next to each other. Am I trying to achieve something that is not possible? thanks Sarah
  12. Thank you.. might just have to give you a shout if I go wrong with the other part!!!!
  13. amazing.. I see now.. thank you.... I was just trying to have a go after your last post and was trying calculations but it was just telling me the total displayed for everything... thank you so much for your help, it is really appreciated. I'm trying to do something far more complicated on another section of this database, but though as I was having no luck I wold try something simpler to give me some more confidence back.. Thank you again for giving me some of your time and help. Sarah
