  1. In list view my fields extend off the available screen area. In Layout Mode the Top Navigation part scrolls to the right together with the Body part, BUT when I exit Layout the Top Navigation part does NOT scroll when I scroll to the right in the Body part. How do I keep the Top Navigation Part in line with the Body Part? This is thoroughly disconcerting as my field labels are all in the Top Navigation Part, but the fields are in the Body Part. The two do not align as I scroll to the right. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Problem Solved - I should have put the labels
  2. Thank you so very, very much for your help.
  3. You "wonder why I cannot automate this part". I am not clever enough to automate it as I first have to open the Word Press website, find and deactivate the member, and then, only after I have done that, do I have to record in my database that that is what I have done. My problem is nearly resolved following the idea you gave me, by writing a script to import the updated data from the excel file, and then displaying it only where there are records that need to be handled, as per your suggestion, but I am stumped by what happens if there are no records that need to be handled. I want to u
  4. Thank you for that comment. It has given me an idea that I believe will resolve my problem.
  5. I have a small Filemaker Member's database (less than 1,200) with some 650 existing members but I am not the Membership Secretary. The Membership Secretary uses Excel to record who joins and resigns, and each time there is a change in membership (joining or leaving) the Excel file on Dropbox is updated and I am notified. I therefore have to import that data into my Filemaker Members database each time there is a change to the members (new member, change in personal detail or resigned member). However I am in control over the data of the existing members who also join our web membership
  6. I attempted to reply to you using my iPad, but although the reply was, apparently saved, I notice it has not been posted. I have 9 different files ending .fmp12. The biggest has 21 tables covering 10 matters, the next has 7 tables covering 6 matters, and then they reduce in complexity until the smallest has 3 tables covering one matter. I purchased the program Filemaker Sync Pro 16, and no licences. I believe that the purchase, which was very expensive, allows me to design as many databases as I want and I do not pay a licence per table or per database, but, of course, I can only u
  7. Thank you for that help. I will investigate an inexpensive FileMaker hosting company, but it seems I will have to continue to "Save As" and Delete and Reload the databases However thank you for that information. Regards David
  8. I am a sole home user, not a business, keeping my personal records in a Filemaker Pro 16 database on my desktop (windows 10) and Filemaker Go on my iPad. No other person is involved. My 9 databases consist of sundry different records in the 100s to 1,000s rather than 10,000 (with the exception of my diabetes records 80,000 +) or more, although they will increase over time, and cover such things as Accounts, Health Records, Software, Telephone Calls, Internet of Things, Gas and Electricity usage, and Diabetes Measurement records. All of a personal home nature. I want to keep the
