  1. Change the result Change the results to Text, that must be it because the field space is bigger then the text. Thanks again Lee. Seems like you're a pretty sharp fella Phil
  2. Hi, I am just curious, are people making a living selling their services creating and maintaining FM databases? Or is this a dying art whose time has passed and moved on to other app software? Thanks, Phil
  3. Hello, I have this Calculation script: Address_Mailing1 & " " & Address_Mailing2 & " " & "¶" & City_Mailing & ", " & " " & State_Mailing & " " & "¶" & Country_Mailing & " " & ZipCode_Mailing which is successfully combining multiple address fields into one field so I can cut/paste out of FM easily, except for one problem. When I use this script and enter only one zip code number (3 for example) I get this result: 411 Teal Street, No. 1773 Green Cove Springs, Florida United States of America 3 But with the
  4. Good advice, I will definitely pay attention to the Portal layout more. I have read a chapter on them but I still haven't totally 'gotten them' yet. Relationships either for that point. It's still a little fuzzy in my head knowing when and how to use relationships and portals. Which seems like a bummer to me because it appears to be the core benefit and power of FM and DB's, especially relationships. Question: Does the performance of a FM DB get 'quirky' the larger the file size gets? I understand low RAM and a slow chip can tribute to this to but my question is more about the FM So
  5. Nice, thanks again for that Webko. I have had a full day of FM, first with inventory and now playing with that Contact list, for fun. Cheers, Phil
  6. Thank you Webko. I'll try that now. That did the trick!! Thanks, I did not even realize it was out of the Portal somewhere. How did you catch that? Thanks alot, I appreciate it <: Phil Wim, Your notes are over my head right now but I have copied the text and looked into the help files for the Script Debugger and the Data Viewer. I will read up on this and keep aware of it. Thank you Phil
  7. Hi Lee, I have attached the DB to this message. Please resist making fun of me. I realize I am playing Tee-ball in a major league ballpark with the FM knowledge here but to misquote Popeye, 'I am where I am'. Basically in the Tasks tab of the Portal, I have no idea why the Fields of Urgency, Status, Created Date, and Completed Date are not showing up in the following line-additional tasks after the first one is entered. Thanks, Phil Contacts_PhilCurtis.fmp12 Thanks Wim.
  8. Hi, I am new to Filemaker and learning on FM-Pro14-Adv. I am reading 'The Missing Manual' book and also following Udemy's free Contacts Database FM video tutorial. I am building my second DB which is a more detailed contacts list. My first is a simple inventory DB I am using at work. My frustrations are coming with troubleshooting problems that come up. As I follow along on the video, I am getting different results then what is shown. I am not even sure how to troubleshoot the problems. I am an engineer and very systems oriented and obviously I do not know the program well nor
  9. I was not trying to do a script, only a 'Single Step', 'Miscellaneous', 'Send Email'. Phil
  10. Hi, I am just geeting back to this now, 8pm at night. Busy day for me and I still have anchor schematics, elevator troubleshooting, and inventory pictures to do before I can get back to this, the fun stuff! I read up on Themes and Styles last night and wrote some notes. I haven't gotten to that part of the book yet so it seems I am a bit behind. I'll get it, just not as quick as I would like. Thanks for the help. Phil
  11. Hi, I am finally back at my PC and here is the screenshot. The Theme is 'Enlightened', the default. I have not created, or done anything with Styles. I am very new at FM, about a month. I still can not set the button to anything, it just keeps going back to 'Do Nothing' Any thoughts? Thanks, Phil
  12. Hi Bruce, Thanks for taking your time and helping out. I apprecitae it. I created the buttons using the button icon on the toolbar shown below.
  13. Hi all, I am new to the forum and new to FM-Pro14. I have been knee-deep reading books and tutorial videos on it for 2-3 weeks so far. I am stuck on a problem and I can not find any documentation. I wonder if someone can help. I am guess this is an easily solution and my beginner status is the problem <; When I create a new button, or modify the existing button, it keeps reverting back to being part of a Group. I have 'Arrange-->Ungroup' many times without success. When I go back to Browse mode and click the button, all fields are selected. When I go to Lay
