    Hi crazybake, I'm not understanding your schema either. How about attaching a copy or a mockup of your file? See more information about how to attach a file here, Anatomy of a Good Topic when contains confidential data. Lee

    Hi Karina and welcome to the FM Forums, I think we need to see a copy of your file. This Topic by Ocean West, Anatomy to a Good Topic, provides additional information on how attach a file?

    Hi teganthomas Please read the email sent you earlier today. Lee
  4. Why? Do you know a reason why Jeff can't Register his copy of the software? This would indicate he owns the software.

    Hi JMart, I watched Martha Zink's video, and compared her example file to your own, and there are some differences. The big difference is that the example file seems to be a different from the one used in the video. It would seem from the comments on the page, the example file was added later. The most notable thing is the lack of a Popover in the example file where you can choose the type of file to be inserted. Nevertheless, the file still works the way it should without it. The other differences are between the example file, and your attempt of implementing it. I believe you left off some needed fields, and / or renamed fields and layouts, that can be confusing you and me. it is hard to see what went wrong. You will learn that when adapting a solution to your own files, you need to copy everything exactly as the example file has it. This might mean to temporary rename things in YOUR file such as Tables. Here is a Checklist for moving files that you might find helpful because it gives the order on how you should move things. Do not try to rename the fields, relationships, etc., until you are sure it works in your file as expected. Once you have it working, you can then make name changes to suit your file. When naming things, try to follow a naming conventions such as suggested in http://filemakerstandards.org/display/cs/Overview HTH Lee

  14. GetSummary from two related tables

    Hello Toni, I don't speak the language your file was written in? What is the language? Perhaps someone who speaks your language will jump in. I really struggled opening your file, was it setup for a server? Your startup script was looking for other related files. The layout I ended up on would not let me into Manage Database. I had to open it using Script Debugger in order to bypass your script. After it was open, I had to cancel it's search for your EDS files. My first reply to this thread contained a link to Anatomy of a Good Topic, it explains further about how can prepare a file for posting it to the FM Forums, Lee
  15. Help with generating a list

    I'm not sure from your file and description if this is what you are after or not. I apologize for the schema - I made this file in FileMaker v3 in 1994.
  16. GetSummary from two related tables

    Please provide the User Id and Password for your file, Admin and admin didn't work.
  17. GetSummary from two related tables

    Hi Toni, Please don't use Generic names. for your tables, field names, etc. Usomg your actual names for these things will helps us understand your schema and our replies will make more sense to you. Consider attaching a copy of your file, or a mockup. Learn how you can do this by reading this topic by Ocean West, Anatomy of a Good Topic. Lee
  18. Hi LaRetta, I saw the reference to tables too, however I would want to know why they want to clear ALL tables, and not just one. Lee
  19. I think you want to use a Loop Script. http://www.filemaker.com/help/15/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Floop.html%23wwconnect_header # Do a find to Isolate Records to be changed # This will replace field contents with nothing. # Go to Record/Request/Page [ First ] # Loop # Set Field [zz_DeleteWarning__lxn ; "" ] Go to Record/Request/Page [ Next ; Exit after last: On ] # End Loop Lee
  20. Hi proless and welcome to the FM Forums, I sent you a Private Message, please read it, and the link to Anatomy of a Good Topic. Lee
  21. Search until, then

    Shouldn't you be sitting down with your FMP programmer and discussing what changes you would like them to make?
  22. Hi Jonathan, I didn't notice that this was posted to FM Starting Points. If you discover it belongs somewhere else let me know. Lee
  23. Filemaker & Responsive Design

    Hi Jarvis, I don't see any changes in the tools between the Version 14 and Version 16 for design of the layouts. In layout mode, there is a tool for showing the size of the different screen resolutions, iPad and iPhone. You might find the Design Sessions at DevCon 2016 helpful. Start with the one by Matt Petrowsky. DES001 - Designing in Tight Spaces: Techniques for Mobile Custom Apps. Each year FileMaker provides the DevCon Session information and links to most of the Videos. Here is a link to the 2016 Sessions https://community.filemaker.com/community/devcon_2016/session_materials_2016, with links to the session material and the videos. Lee
  24. Hide Object based on Field Value and Permission

    Hi iroc, and welcome to the FM Forums, I move your question from the Conditional Formatting Topic, to the Layout Topic. It is a better fit to your question. I sent you a Private Message with some additional information. Lee
  25. Hi fyanesv, This is a year old topic, you would probably be better off starting your own thread where you can say it into your own words, what your question is. Take a look at the this post, Anatomy of a Good Topic by Ocean West. Lee
