  1. Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I'm having the same issue. It was working earlier in the day and now its not. I'm thinking it has something to do with our network security. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
  2. I can't help you but wanted to let you know we've also had this same problem several times and are looking for a resolution. Our server scheduled script has been setup to abort after 5 mins. So after 5 mins, it gets Status "Time limit exceeded" but the "Server 13.01" client remains and we can't disconnect it. At the same time, the elapsed time per call goes up to 5 million which freezes FileMaker for all clients. The only way out is to kick out all users and reboot the server itself. It happens randomly as well. This script also ran fine in FMS12 and we've tried everything to trap the problem. Do you have the time limit set on your script to stop it? Do you see any performance issues when the script is runninghung? Good Luck!
  3. Thanks for responding. Doesn't sound like something I have time for right now. Our remote engineers want a quick, easy way to report their time and attach a related status report to each entry. They don't want to log into our system and then launch FM. Tried FMGO but have to login to VPN first. Too time consuming. I wonder if WebDirect allows you to attachinsert a word document. I'm thinking about exploring that option.
  4. I'm trying to import an excel file that has an embedded Word document on each row. I want the Word documents to be imported in and saved on a networked drive. Is there anyway to do this? I would be OK with temp. storing docs in a Container field for the initial import. To insert the object into Excel, I'm using "Insert Object" , selecting the tab "Create from File" not "Create new" and browsing to the document and checking "Display as Icon". The specific application is importing timekeeping records with a related status report word document attached to each line. Any help or ideas on how to do this are appreciated. Thanks!
  5. I'm now able to open excel files on my IPad in FMGO using Super Container. Yeah! I think there was an issue with the initial installation of Super Container.
  6. Can you open super container excel (.xlsx) files using FMGO on the IPad? What about Word (.docx) files? We were able to open PDFs but not .xlsx files.
  7. We are testing FMGO and I was wondering what are the known security risks of using an Exernal IP address to access FMServer. Of course we have a username\password setup on the files as well as checking if the app is FMGO. The reason we want to do this is it is so much quicker for the user to get to the files this way. I didn't see this as an option in the FMGO documentation and I'm not a network person. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Outlook 2010?

    Did you find out what Filemaker says about their compatibility with OfficeOutlook 2010? We are planning to go there once it is officially released. I have been using Outlook 2010 with FM11 and it seems fine. Thanks.

    Append an exported pdf

    Fermi, Did you get this to work on Windows with the following? »http://www.accesspdf.com/pdftk/« I am trying to do the same thing. I have 2 PDFs and want to append into one on the fly. The first is a PDF generated from FM. The second is a standard, static document I'm gettting from the Windows file system. The downside is that you have to install the pdft.exe file so everyone can access it. Yet another layer to maintain. Thank you.
  10. I'm new to FMPHP development. We have a event registration system written in PHP using the FM PHP API and it is working well for the most part. The problem is we frequently have hung PHP sessions within FileMaker Server.They will hang until we kill them. The client version shows as PHP in the Admin Console. These sessions peg the WPE machine's CPU and cause slowness for others who are trying to register so I need to get this resolved ASAP. Our config consists of 3 machines - one for our Web Server, one for our FM WPE processing (virtual Server), and one for our FM Server. I'm hoping someone has seen this behavior before and knows why it happens and how to prevent it from happening. It was my understanding (could be way off base) that PHP connected to FMS for a short time and automatically disconnected itself. If the user closes the browser while FM is running something, Would that cause this behavior? Thanks , any insight is appreciated.
  11. Hello, I am trying to insert a 3 page word document into a container field and I can only see the first page. My objective is to loop through some service part numbers and include the related word document text in the output. Is there anyway (an easy way) to do this? For example: Appendix B: Statements of Work - Insert Statement of work document here. - Insert Statement of work document here. - Insert Statement of work document here.
  12. Most are on wired, some are on wireless working from a remote location using Citrix.
  13. I am going to into the FMS Admin Console and closing the one file. I am not manually disconnecting users. The file I am replacing is a Pricing file from our vendor. It is linked to our Products file which is linked to many other tablesfiles. Also, I checked the database and there is no On Exit script running. Thank you for confirming that [color:red]this is [color:red]not normal behavior. Do you have any ideas on what I should do to test this out to find a solution to the problem? Have you heard of this happening to anyone else or is it just me.... Julie
  14. Can someone explain to me why when you close a file that is hosted on FileMaker Server, it disconnects all users who are running Filemaker? A long time ago, it would allow you to close a server file and if someone had it open, it would give a file not found error and let them continue. I realize there is room for data corruption but it shouldn't kick everyone out of all files because you close one file. It gives the standard, lovely error message: Communication with the host was interrupted and could not be re-established. All affected windows will be closed. Weekly I have to replace a large file with an updated file and it is so annoying when I have to restart my robot machine processes not to mention getting everyone out of FM just to replace a file. Any insight is appreciated.
  15. Thank you. I found a nice little visual basic script to run using "send event" http://www.suodenjoki.dk/us/productions/articles/word2pdf.htm Cheers, julie
