  1. Find and delete a word in a paragraph

    I don't think we can recommend a specific book, there are some variables we don't know, such as your skills. I would recommend that you check out the book stores near you, or go online to ecampus.com Barnes and Noble Amazon.com You can download the Sessions Material from DevCons 2017, this session https://community.filemaker.com/docs/8302 has a video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ts9P95CbRY&feature=youtu.be that you may find helpful. I can recommend some Training Sites that offer sessions on scripting and a lot more. HTH Lee
  2. Find and delete a word in a paragraph

    Hi Gilbert, Delete what, this home000008, or the word "home" (leaving the 000008)? Lee
  3. Finding Webdirect Incompatible Scripts

    I don't have FMPerception, but if you just want a list of them, you can see them in FMP by going to the Script Workspace, in the top right corner, their is a globe next to the Show and hide Script pane and step pane. Click on it and there is a list of the compatible script for All, Mac, Windows, Server, IOS, Custom Web Publishing and Web Direct,
  4. GTRR Bug in FM 16

    Hey Michael, I'm sure that you have already used the Debugger and Data Viewer to see where these scripts are failing, can you post what you are seeing. Or, Can you post a copy of the files (see the Anatomy of a Good Topic on how this can be down without compromising your confidential information). Lee
  5. GTRR Bug in FM 16

    Is there an AppleScript in involved? This happened to me, because FileMaker has changed how it works with AS. I put an example of what you need to do on a Mac. https://fmforums.com/topic/101881-using-applescript-to-open-a-scriptwindow/?tab=comments#comment-463843 HTH Lee
  6. Find and delete a word in a paragraph

    You can filter that out. Filter (yourField); "0123456789")
  7. In Layout Mode, it's the button you have clicked on in the Button Bar as seen in the Button Bar Setup. There are several videos and blogs on the Button Bar, since your question is about the Active Segment, start with this one,. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_zvPZ2D__w
  8. DDR - where to focus?

    Hi Wim, Would putting the portals in sliders, or popups improve the performance?
  9. Help with the custom Function

    This is part of the problem. I saw the Custom Function you have before I asked the question. I wanted to see the source of this CF, to see if I could pick what you're missing.. I have several of Raybaundi's calculations and custom functions, but I don't have this one. Lee
  10. Help with the custom Function

    I can't find the Custom Function by raybaudi that your using. Check out the relationships, you are trying to use data from a non - existing table and relationship.
  11. Help with the custom Function

    Material 1 is using or relying on a related table for the number (table not included) Whereas, Material 2 is not using a related table.
  12. Please do not double post.
  13. Lines Report only returns one value of list

    Glad to hear that.
  14. Rank function

    Hi Trpan_z and welcome to the FM Forums, Sometimes you can find answers to questions online. I just did a Google Search for site: fmforums.com Rank function and it returned several hits. @lola good post.
  15. Hi John, When this happens, just remove the object from all contact with the Popover, and then drag it back onto the Popover. Hope this helps, Lee
  16. Copy related records

    Hi Bill, Are you trying to make a report from a portal? If so, you should make your reports in the Table where the original Data Resides.
  17. Hi Spidey, Your questions is a little unclear. If you mean do you have to have Advance to make Standalone / Runtimes, yes. Otherwise please clarify your question. Lee
  18. Subscripts

    Hi hutchlad, Since you have FileMaker Pro Advance, why not use the Script Debugger and Data Viewer to see where the "Master Script" is breaking? You could also copy the script and put into a reply here, or post a copy of the file, see Anatomy of a Good Topic on how this can be done. It also has addition tips on how to post in the Forum. HTH Lee
  19. Button Script to Display Tab

    I'm not sure what button you are referring to, or what you are trying to accomplish. If as Doug suggest, then I'm not sure why you would need a button instead of just clicking the Tab. IIUC, your are wanting to Go To Related Record (GTRR) attached to the Greater Than button ">" as it appears to be button for going to the related record. If that is the case, it can be be single step Go to Related Record [ Show only related records ; From table: “Prospect List ALL” ; Using layout: “Prospect List” (Prospect List) ] Select the option of show the related record only The other scripts such as the one attached to the funnel doesn't do anything. Anyway, I modified your file to show the related record button. HTH Lee BD Demo_Mod.fmp12
  20. Jump on click

    Have you tried zooming in? Do you have the layouts Snap to Grid checked. i.e. Position, bottom of the inspector Grid?
  21. Are you aware that in Version 16 it handles AS different? You need to go in to into the Accounts and Privileges and check the box Allow Apple Events.
  22. I wished I had had your Profile Information before I answered your question. I probably would have not posted the AS part.
  23. AppleScript is a Macintosh Operating System application. Why use it for something that is built in FileMaker. i.e. the script step "Open Script Workspace", which will do what you want. There a bunch of key combinations available in FileMaker. It is also possible to add or change them by using the Accessibility in the System Preferences AFAIK, this isn't possible. Take a look at the Clip Manager available https://www.myfmbutler.com/en/products/clip-manager-for-mac/6 I use it for my archive of fields, scripts and custom functions. Lee
