  1. Yes, by using the service control utility sc.exe. To start the server, use the following: sc start "FileMaker Server Helper" sc start "FileMaker Server 7" sc start "FileMaker Publishing Engine (WPC)" sc start "FileMaker Publishing Engine (CWPE & CONFIG)" To stop the server, use: sc stop "FileMaker Publishing Engine (CWPE & CONFIG)" sc stop "FileMaker Publishing Engine (WPC)" sc stop "FileMaker Server 7" sc stop "FileMaker Server Helper" You may need to experiment some with stopping the services. I had to add some pauses between steps and change the se
  2. Stanley, We are using MAS 90 for part of our business. MAS 200 is more rubust that MAS 90 but has the same look and feel. There are two versions of MAS 200, one that that has same b-tree file structure as MAS 90 and the SQL version. The SQL version should provide superior performance over the other provided the implementation was done correctly. MAS 200 is published by Best Software the same folks who bring us ACT! and Peachtree. MAS 200 is a full accounting system with GL, AR, AP, PO, Inventory, Sales Order and Shipping. We use MAS 90 for the inventory control, which is excellent. MAS 200
  3. FM will remember the settings that were last used for printing. When you select File>Print, the print dialog box appears. There should be a check box for Print to File, remove the check from this box.
  4. You were close. Do not enclose field names in quotes. Literal strings will need to be enclosed in quotes (adding spaces between the fields). An example calc: Street No.&" "&Street&" "&City&" "&State&" "&Zip Add any punctuation needed such as commas between the quotes. Also, make sure your calc results to text.
  5. Are you running Server 7 Advanced? The Advanced version is required for connections of this type.
  6. One thing I failed to mention in the previous post is that sharing needs to be enabled in the file for ODBC/JDBC connections. Look in Edit>Sharing>ODBC/JDBC. Hope this helps
  7. OK, I'll give it a shot. I will list the things that need to be done. If you have already done them, great. If not, you will need to. FM Server>properties>client tab>enable client service button - check the box to allow ODBC and JDBC connections. In the FM file you want to make a connection to File>Define>Accounts&Privileges on the extended privileges tab [fmxdbc] has a privilege set assinged. Install the ODBC driver on the machine that has Crystal Reports. Configure the driver as either a user or system DSN. Enter a name for the DSN, enter the IP of the FM Server, por

  10. It is hard to tell what could be causing your problem, so I am listing a few things to check in your installation. If you are running Windows 2000, make sure you have installed SP4 Download and install the latest patches for FM Server 7 When looking at the services running, can you see Filemaker Publishing Engine (CWPE&CONFIG) and (WPC) running? If you don't see these services, then the publishing engine did not install. Make sure that IIS is running when you perform the Server 7 Advanced install. If these services are running, is IIS running? Including the World Wide Web P
  11. Marlowe, I have the developer version of FM Server 7 running on Win2000 Pro. Make sure that you are running Win2000 SP4 and that you have installed the FM Server 7v2 updater. I have no problems connecting to the server either locally or remotely. Hope this helps, Steve

  13. There are a couple of alternatives to using a plug-in. One is to use the keyboard command ctrl+down arrow. This will move to the next record, but not to the first field. You can tab to it. Another is to create a data entry script. Go to Record/Request/Page[ First ] Go to Field [ table name::field name ] Pause/Resume Script [ Indefinitely ] Loop Go to Record/Request/Page[ Next ] Go to Field [ table name::field name ] Pause/Resume Script [ Indefinitely ] End Loop This script will move to the next record and pause to allow for data entry. When the enter key (the one
  14. Try using the Send Message script step instead. You will need to add the path to IE or the browser you are using to your calculated URL field. It will need to look like: C:Progra~1Intern~1iexplore.exe http://www.google.com In my testing, this opened a new window for each URL. Unfortunately, it will also open a new window for a URL that already has a window open. Hope this helps, Steve
