  1. How many different product codes are there? Maybe a pop up or drop down would work better?
  2. I would consider a different overall approach. If you are the only one mowing, you may be better off reconciling at the end of the day, then generating a schedule for tomorrow. IDK if pre-programming all your cuts for the summer (season) is a good idea, as a few days of heavy rain (even one day) throws the entire schedule out the window. And if you don't get all of today's cuts done (weather, equipment break down, etc.), you'll have to make another adjustment. I also wouldn't even bother with syncing to Google. That's a lot of alerts, all day, everyday. Every morning, or night befo
  3. Lol. You were given an excellent explanation and excellent advice, by easily one of the best. Comment took his own time, volunteering for free, as we all do to provide you with help. You ignored all of it and took the last sentence out of context. I think it’s you who will need the 'good luck', and maybe take a refresher course on manners-which now I may also need...lol
  4. If I am following you correctly, I think simply the layout you copied from is bigger than the layout you are copying to, or you are pasting lower on the layout and the block of items you are pasting will extend past the bottom of your layout. Sometimes instead of using your keyboard to paste, point you mouse at the upper left corner of the layout, then paste. Everything you pasted remains selected so you can drag or use keyboard arrows to position. But once again when you get to the bottom of your existing layout and try to go farther you will get the same message. It's the same w
  5. Interesting @commentI’m not disagreeing with you but I don’t quite understand 'conceptually wrong'. Does it depend on what the user is actually doing with it? IOW, if the only reason to have a number 'checked' is to designate it as the best number to reach that client, does it matter? Or maybe a better question is what can you do with that field on the client table that can’t be done as my example shows. just curious/trying to learn. Thanks Steve
  6. Here's part of a simple phone portal. Checking the box marks that number as main and moves it to top of portal. Also has auto formatting and error checking.Simple Phone.fmp12 You can do the same basic thing with emails.
  7. I fell into this vortex when I redid my business solution with FM16 a few years ago. I think I know what you are going for. The problem for me was it got so complicated (for me) with all the script triggers, and global variables, and calculations, that adding/editing layouts became such a headache. It wouldn't always refresh, or if on panel had a portal, that would cause a hit/delay. Sometimes refresh object/refresh portal, refresh layout wouldn't work consistently. I ended up abandoning that and continuing with simpler layouts.
  8. For some reason I posted 6 hours ago and it disappeared. Your link doesn’t work. Seems to be a spelling error 'collage' instead of college?
  9. If you're trying to prevent a user from opening the database after a certain date, this won't work if the user opens up FileMaker, then Script Debugger and Data Viewer, opens your file and changes your $$Demo, then runs/exits the script.
  10. It's a whole new world now... https://store.claris.com/product/PMO
  11. How do you want to present the data from the portals? If it's one, then the other, then repeat, seems like a looping script where you gather want you want thru GTRR from the first portal, then switch layouts, do the same, then repeat, which would create what many use and call a Virtual List. Edit: Just saw @Ocean West answered right before me.
  12. You stumbled upon a well known technique discussed many times on the forums regarding entering find mode. I don't quite understand your need for an empty set. Are you looking for a record, then if you don't find it, you are creating a new record? As far as duplicating code, this blog may help. http://www.philosophyoffilemaker.com/robust-filemaker-design-87
