  1. Hi there. I have two tables. One for accounts payable and a second one for monthly ongoing payables. The last one holds 10 records which are recurring expenses. I am struggling to transfer the recurring expenses to the accounts payable table. What would be the best approach to deal with this issue?

    Blank Records

    The issue seems to come from the client's Excel file. Some restrictions must be implemented I've fixed the issue by exporting the newly data from the fm db to a new Excel file. Then reimported the data in the fm db. Then no empty records

    Blank Records

    Hi there I imported around 900 records into a fm pro db from an Excel db (.xlsx) . It's all there but when I go back to the db, I got 900 empty records. The data is gone but the records are still there??? The Start script checks fine. No weird action to perform. Just a simple sort. Any ideas?

  5. Hi there I was wondering if it was possible to send a text to a phone. If so, what functions are involved to make this possible? Thanks for your tips

    I've just upgraded to FileMaker Pro Advanced 18 and I realized that most of the themes are missing!!!! Is there any way to recover or import them from previous version like Pro 14? Thanks

    File locked or in use (FM Pro 13)

    I always close Pro 13 before compiling a runtime solution. Beside, i tried with Pro 11 and the same error popped on screen running El Capitan (4 GB) ???? I tried on a Mac Book Pro and it went through. Where is the catch?
  13. When I try to compile a runtime solution, during the process, I got this message: Any help!

    Admin privileges

    I don't want the admin guy to have full access to all the privileges. Just want to let him manage passwords linked to the account names. I cannot let the users to manage their passwords due to their activities. Overtime, some of them will have new assignments that change their privileges.

    Admin privileges

    I am planning a Web Direct application hosted on a dedicated server and I find difficult to set up the Admin privileges to change passwords only. I don't want to grant full access to the db. Is it possible to do that? The guy who will be in charge of the password issue is not familiar with FileMaker Pro and I want to make sure he will not mess up with the programming. Thanks for your tips
