  1. Thanks for the comeback. I got around the 125 (though it seemed like the max was less) by keeping the old files closed until someone may need it. Which is seldom. I put passwords on all the files tht didn’t have them. Thanks again. mike
  2. Actually 125 files didn't work. Anyone know the maximum number of files allowed on the server? If I need more do I have to create a second server?
  3. Ok. Found two things. I looked at the log. Is it true I can only open 125 files? As far as files not opening I saw this: SECURITY: Database "Resource_File_Opener" cannot be opened because it does not have the required password protection. Apparently it's only opening files with passwords. Can I set it to open files that don't have passwords? I think that's the major problem. If it's true about the 125 is there another setting for that? Thanks Mike
  4. Hi. I finally went to the filemaker server 18 after being on 12 all these years, as you all recommended. I'm having a serious problem. I took all my database files and brought them to the fm server 18. There's 126 files. I clicked on open all and only 92 files open. Many files are similar, just for a different school year. Going crazy as I promised we'll be up by Monday. If I can't resolve this I have to go back to 12. Any help on this? Mike
  5. Okay, I finally got a server 18 up and running. I'm moving files from my 12 server over. I went to databases and made a few subfolders in which I put the files. However, when I go to the host, it shows me all the files but not the subfolder name. This organized it better in 12. Is there a way?
  6. Maybe I'll get lucky and get some answers. First, I get all the updates but been using FM12. Ready to switch. I had all the downloads but I need some king of key file for 18 server and the link disappeared. Now we're stuck Second. Once we somehow create the new FM 18 server, Can I move my files slowly by having FM12 and FM18 on each workstation at the same time and use whichever I need? I would need the 12 until I update all workstations and move all server 12 files over. Am I making any sense? Need help quick, pleaaaase! Mike
  7. My FM databases are still being used. I tried to get into FM server 12 to add another database. It opened and gave me that message. Version 12 on Windows 10 (I know I have to upgrade, just no time). I believe the CD I got on server was by you. I'll get a screen shot. Even though the start database server on the left on top isn't dimmed, when I click on it it hangs. Have to stop the application.
  8. I go into my FM server like I always did before. The only difference is I'm coming in through teamviewer as I'm not in the office. I get this message and just don't know what to do: I get the following error message. Tried to push the button to start database on the top left and it's hanging. The database server is not available admin console functionality is limited to filemaker server overview and the log viewer panes. to use other functionality, the server administrator must start the database server again.
  9. Two separate files. Not one file with a related table. A reason for that. Anyway, file A has a table with five records that have the word "Both" in field z. In File B the table has a field that refernces FileA::z so I can now see the field z in my second file for each record. So here, too, there are only 5 records that show "Both" in the field z When I do a search in File B looking for "Both" in the field z, I get 20 records, five of which do show "Both", but the rest either blank or something other than "Both". It's the weirdest thing because I also have other fields like x t
  10. I have a field in file A, say, called z I have a field in file B which has, as one of it's fields, fileA::z I have other file A fileds showing in File B as well and have no problem. With filed z, when I do a find for the word "Both", I get 20 records. In reality there are only 4 records in File A with the value "Both" in field z. Out of the 20 I have the 4, but then I have the other 16 with other words or blank. Can't figure this out. The other finds on the other fields work fine. Any help?
