  1. We have [rightly or wrongly] been sharing a Filemaker Pro 13 solution from a dedicated physical server, by serving locally it through Filemaker Pro 13 installed on that machine. The solution was accessed by three FMP users on Windows PC's on our local network within a small office. However, we have just purchased the annual package that consists of... 3 X FMS 17 5 X FMA 17 With a really slow internet service, we currently want to continue to serve our solution locally on the local network within the office, at least until January 2019 when we 'should' gain access to fi
  2. Hi, I wonder if anyone can help. I have a folder on my desktop called “quotes” and have a working script that saves quotes in a PDF format to that folder. 1). This works just fine… Get ( DesktopPath ) & "/" & "quotes" & "/" & Quotes::Quote_Pk & "-Quote.pdf" 2). But can anyone tell me why this doesn’t… Get ( FilePath ) & "/" & "quotes" & "/" & Quotes::Quote_Pk & "-Quote.pdf” …using the second I get the following error message… I need the second script to work because we have had to move the database as well as the "quo
  3. My database has only three tables... ITEMS - Which is an inventory of tools for the company. • BOOKED - Which records an audit of each time each item is booked in or out of the stores • TESTED - Which records an audit of each time an electrical tool is PAT tested [safe to use] The individual Items are displayed in a list layout called 'Item List' which is basically the 'Home Page'. The BOOKED events are displayed in a portal in a 'form layout' called 'Item Booking'. I've set the sort order in the portal to show the last 'booking' at the top. The easiest way to
  4. Hi. I built a database about a year ago but it wasn't required at the time, a year later and it is needed so I'm pretty rusty at present ref FMP but need to is user friendly. All I want to do is add a slight tint to the background colour of certain fields in list view when the row is not active but try as I might I just can't seem to do so. In the active state yes, but not when the row isn't active. I have made a little video that might help the reader understand my predicament, any help would be appreciated. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B687aT8LAHKmRHEyZjh5OFdlSnM/view
  5. Thanks for taking the time to reply Steve. Are you saying that all workstations must upgrade from Filemaker Pro 13 to Filemaker Server? Or is Filemaker Server something that needs to be installed on the server itself while the workstations themselves run FMP 13? Otherwise, can we upgrade one account to "Filemaker Pro Advanced" and make a standalone database to run on the in-house server with or without "Filemaker Server"? I think I need to become familiar with the attributes of... Filmaker Pro Advanced. Filemaker Server. Thanks, Karlos. Thanks Kris. Where is the best place to 'famil
  6. Hi. Having created two Filemaker Pro 13 databases, and used them for sometime on one computer, we have now built a new office with... Three new PC Workstations An in-house server [not a NAS] All linked via ethernet ...are wondering if we can put the two databases on the new 'in-house-server' and access them from each workstation via the ethernet network? Having contacted Filemaker, they told me in no uncertain terms that if I placed the database on a NAS [Network Attached Storage] it would corrupt the file, but then I wasn't aware that we were having a inhouse-server fitted so didn't aske
  7. ​ I get that, there might well have to be a long line of Marks, Karls and Scots using this solution! in the future! Once again thanks for the nudge, it is appreciated.
  8. ​Spot-on 'Comment'... I was using 'userName' when I should have been using 'AccountName' and now it works, goes straight to the tab of the person logged-in to the solution. Thanks, appreciated.
  9. I have a layout with a tab control within it, the "Default Front Tab" is "To do List". Within the "To Do List" tab I have another 'Tab Control' with the following tabs... • Markus • Karl • Scot • Secretary These tabs are also so named as objects. Additionally these names are also the user names. • Markus [User Name, Tab Name and Object Name] • Karl [User Name, Tab Name and Object Name] • Scot [User Name, Tab Name and Object Name] • Secretary [User Name, Tab Name and Object Name] I set an 'On Object Enter' script trigger on the "To Do List" Tab as follows...
  10. Finally I got it to work, unfortunately the video above does not play... I've had allot of trouble with Google Drive lately. But anyway, I've recorded another of my issue resolved... https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B687aT8LAHKmMEpLaUI3dTYyUzQ/view?pli=1 I found that I could only watch the video if I changed it to 360p rather than the 480p it was trying to use.
  11. ​Hi. Acknowledging my failings in explanation I decided to do a short screencast, that done I uploaded it to my Google Drive, grabbed the link to view it only to find some three hours later Google still hasn't processed it. I'll now leave the link in the hope that it will be processed soon... either way it will be viewable eventually... https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B687aT8LAHKmOWlfUXBSUVVXUHc/view?usp=sharing I hope it goes some way in expounding my issue, better than my literary skills have. Thanks, Karl.
  12. ​ The portal is within a 'Tab Control', Now when I click on another tab and then return... the variable loads the right value. I added "commit record" to the script but then I couldn't edit the text field as it instantly committed, moving me to the next field. I got it to work by using... GetValue So its working, now I've just got to force it to work without having to leave the tab for another, then return. I tried adding a link to an image on my google drive again, but it is hopeless... just get a spinning icon. But I here is a link to it on my drive... https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B
  13. ​Thanks Wim, but its not working. I guess you mean... Set Variable [$$todo; Value:ToDo::ToDo_Pk I've added a merged variable to my layout to see if it is pulling the value as I haven't got 'Filemaker Pro Advanced"... and it is just showing a question mark. Additionally other items that are looking to that variable to act aren't working. The trigger works off... "OnObjectEnter" which I should have thought would have fired when I click into the text field? Just a thought... It says that the value of the variable must be text, but I'll pulling from the primary key which is a number, is that
  14. Newbie. OK, here goes... • When I make a new entry into a portal, the cursor automatically enters a text field. • This text field triggers a script. (or whenever I enter it) • I had hoped that script would set a variable called "$$todo", with the value being the record's Primary Key, which i had thought it would have grabbed with the following script... Set Variable [$$todo; Value:GetField ( ToDo_Pk )] • But I just get a "?" So in other words, I'm trying to set a variable called "$$todo"... of the record that holds within it a text field I had entered. Obviously there is something w
  15. Hey LaRetta, thats really helpful, appreciated. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I wasn't notified that I had received a reply, I'd better check my notification settings!
