    Memory Tables

    I don´t have any specific task right now. I have a program where every time I open, loads appointments of the week in the first layout it opens, the menu layout. Right now is fast but as the database grows the speed will decrease since it has to pull the data from the disk. I made a report, to load it have to go thru many relationships and create a temp table. Would be much faster, if that temp file is in memory and it´s created during the off time. I think this is a feature that filemaker inc could implement in future releases to enhance the database. Instead of having to connect filemaker to an external DBMS.

    Memory Tables

    Thanks Josh, it´s an alternative. Not the same, because it´s client side not centralized for the whole database and more complicated and require more effort. Perhaps there is a connection method (ODBC - JDBC) to an external memory database, already tested. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_in-memory_databases

    Memory Tables

    Hi, I would like to know if it´s possible to create memory tables within Filemaker and how. I saw in a different RAD tool the option to create memory tables. The table is kept meanwhile the program is open and dismissed after is closed. I see this as a powerful tool for complex reports and to speed processes. Maybe there is an ODBC or JDBC driver for memory tables, Server side or client side.

    I made a collapse expand list gruped by sub summary. Let me know your opinions or how to enhance it. There is a short video and a link to the file. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4bhTzNR-Gk https://1drv.ms/u/s!AmlBOulv2ro6_CsOo...

    Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    Thanks, for the contribution. It´s for an appointment software, I´m using Twilio.com for SMS, but it´s .06 per message, here in Panama. Since the majority of the people use WhatsApp, I would like to implement it in Filemaker.

    Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    I see, so it´s not convenience to use Telegram because their system will be block, sooner or later ? You think It´s possible for filemaker to send the message thru WhatsApp web , https://web.whatsapp.com/ ? IF any way, if i decided to use Telegram, how to script it in fmp. i think i should use insert from url but don´t know exactly how to write it, the curl options to use etc.

    Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    I want to create the option to send WhatsApp messages within fmp . I found a site named whatsmate.net , that uses a rest service, they have php (https://whatsmate.github.io/2016-02-20-send-whatsapp-message-php/), c, java codes examples that works with their system, they use cURL which is now available in filemaker 16 and filemaer 15 has a plugin for that purposes. Any ideas?.
