  1. Probably too broad a question. Basically I have 700 standards for school subjects. I have about 450 students and need to check off the standards met for each of the students. Not sure how to approach this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in Advance. norm
  2. Hey all, I am called upon occasionally to work with filemaker. Hence my novice status. I have been asked to create a db that tracks students successful completion of standards. This is a school setting and I have a db of all students (stinfo.fp5). Yes, need to work with 5.5 on this. I should be able to search for a group of students and come up with the standards (standards.fp5) based on grade level for a subject area. I am assuming i will need to work with a portal, but don't have a lot of experience. I have begun populating standards.fp5 with all the standards info. I have attached a c
  3. Gentlemen, I am moving a 5.5 "solution" to IWP hosting about 8 files in FMS 8 Adv. I was have been working on the transfer on a test server and things have been going along fine. They are hosted and I can edit them throught FM 8. However, now when I go in to the server I have to start it each time to see the files. I can see the files but then only for a few minutes and it closes. The only significant change to anything other than layouts has been password changes to some of the hosted files. Any ideas? I will continue to work on this. Another symptom of my problem is when I acces
  4. In IWP the spell check capabilities are not compatible or at least they are greyed out in the script step list. Is there any way around this? Also what is the best way to create a logout button if the user cannot use the dialog area to the left. Thanks in Advance. Norm
  5. Ladies and Gentlemen, I have a working solution in FM 5.5 that we have used over our intranet for 3 years now at our school. At this point I need to move it to the web and have been working with IWP. I am hosting the files on a test server. The problem: I have a simple layout with a textbox. When I click on it the script goes to a new layout for a find. Here is the script: Go to Layout ["new_find"(print)] Enter Find Mode [Pause] Perform Find[] Sort Records [Restore; No dialog] Go to Record/Request/Page [First] Go to Layout ["ling_tabs" (print)] Enter Browse Mode [] Th
  6. Hello All, I have a school db I am working on moving from 5.5 to 8 and using IWP to the web. Much of the database works however I am addressing a few problems. I am a novice but am motivated. I have been running this with 5.5 server on a lan for three years. Here is the issue. I have a button that triggers a find script: Set error capture (ON) Go to Layout [Find(print)] Enter find mode (pause) Go to field [select/perform, student::team] Perform Find this goes on to another layout with the found set The button on the find layout resumes the script The reason I am w
  7. I have a portal with 5 combinations. I would like to extract the fifth to a field. Also, I would like the field to automatically perfom this script. Not having much luck with script "go to portal" select fifth row then copy and paste. It is picking up all the rows. Any help would be helpful. Thanks in Advance. norm
  8. Thanks for your help. That's what happens when FM is about 10% of my job.
  9. Hi all, I am trying to put together a calculation that, based on the students grade 9,10,11,12, determines the year of graduation. It of course depends on what month it is. This is the start I have. Hope someone can give feedback to a novice. Thank you in advance. Case(student::grade =12 & Month (g_current_date) <= 6 calc_year & Month (g_current_date) >6 calc_year +1,
  10. Thanks stanley. Guess that's what happens when this is 5% of my job. Don't know what I would do without all of you. norm
  11. Hi. all. I am trying to put together a startup applescript that launches files in Server 5.5. Here i s what I have so far. (* This script will launch Filemaker Server and load the key database files. *) tell application "Finder" activate select file "Server 5.5" open selection end tell tell application "FileMaker Server" -- FileMaker PRO DATABASES open "Server HD:Desktop:Key Databases:Calendar.fp5" open "Server HD:Desktop:Key Databases:combinations" open "Server HD:Desktop:Key Databases:klc_staff" open "Server HD:Desktop:Key Databases:locker
  12. I have a two page db that prints to 8.5x11. The two pages print fine, however, when I print the range 1 to 1 both pages still print. Frequently I need only the first page. Any ideas here. Thanks in Advance. norm
  13. Thanks, this was a lot of help. I love learning new things in FM. You are all great! Norm
  14. I am putting working out a locker database for our school. The locker inventory, student name etc... I can figure out, however, each locker has 5 possible combinations that can be assigned. It seems like a radio button field would be the choice, however that would be a lot of value lists. Additionally, I don't think they would show up in a columnar solution. Could use some guidance on this. Thanks for your help in Advance Norm
  15. I am working with andy's FindDuplicates solution. Thanks andy. I have it all set up but am getting all 1s in the Count in last Record field. I can see the duplicates in the other field. Any idea why this is so? I have been working with it for awhile. When I do get 0s can I just delete them? Thanks in Advance norm
