  1. Thanks Comment. Now that I think about it, it makes sense why it is not everywhere !! Regards kevin
  2. In Matt Petrowsky's video on all things new in Fm 16 , the very first new addition is a new calculation workspace where we can see the results of our calculation. i.e. there is an additional pane in the work space where results can be previewed.( see attached pic). I can get to this workspace from the Data Viewer , but when I try to get to it from Define Fields dialog box, I just get the regular calculation workspace. What Gives ? Why is it not everywhere ? Thanks. kevin
  3. hello, I think if you are going to delete records then there will be gaps in your serial numbers. I don't know how to solve this, sorry,. But I am sure it is doable, but pretty complicated. Maybe others can give an idea. What Doughemi is saying in his reply is : Make your serial number field a calculation field and use the Get(RecordNumber) function. Like this : Sno = Get(RecordNumber) [ file is calculated field with result set to be number]. Hope clear. rgds Kevin
  4. Hello all, as the subject says unable to install trial version of Fm 14 on a win 7 based pc with 4 GB RAM and i3 processor. After some googling I understand this to be a bitness problem. My pc is 32 bit -- but the installer seems to be only for 64 bit. Maybe the trial version does not have separate installers - quite defeats the purpose of a trial version in my opinion. I am logged in as administrator - but even then the error keeps coming up. Error is something like " Unable to install or uninstall filemaker on this system.Please refer to system requirements in the installation instructions for more information". Please advise.
  5. Thanks LaRetta works like a charm. I could nto find the option to check or uncheck "Perform without Dialog". SO when I click on 'by calculation..) and the calculation dialog box pops up I dont see the option anywhere of checking or unchecking. But anyway it works. Thanks.
  6. Hello, I am looking fr a way to script the otherwise manual process of going to a particular record whose number you happen to know already. In FM 14 Advanced- i go to records menu and pull down to "Go to record..." and then click on GoTo... in the submenu. I am then presented with a little dialog box which allows me to put my record number and off I go to the record. How do I script this ? I will be hiding the menu tool bar area in my solution so I wanted to put a button on the layout that would duplicate this functionality ... but cant find the step that pops up the dialog box ( NOT that dialog box, but the little one we were just talking about). Thanks Kevin
  7. Hello I am unable to connect to this site from India. I am currently in Sri Lanka and have connected from there as you can see. But when I am in India I cannot.Error message says something about timing out. I think the number of hops is high ! Other than that not sure what the problem is. WIll be back in India soon so if the site admin wishes to to contact me, pls use my email address I used to log into the site with. Thanks Kevin
