    EAR password not working

    I don't believe the encryption password is managed by any keychain. It's not clear where exactly the server stores it but AFAIK it's not the OS keychain. I have not heard of any way you can recover the password. That would defeat the whole purpose of it. Sorry.

    PDF not viewing

    On Windows you need to have a PDF browser plugin installed. If you don't have this, the Insert > PDF menu item will be dimmed in FileMaker.

    Caps lock?
  4. Pretty cool -- I once built a system in FileMaker 6 that did something similar outputting text in RTF.
  5. Hmmm, could be something to do with screen resolution?
  6. Does the button have a calculated tooltip maybe?

    Won't Scroll

    Welcome to the forums. Haven't heard of that one. Any plugins installed?
  8. What do you mean get it "into an AppleScript"? Does the script get invoked outside of FileMaker (which is what Lee's suggestion is for)? Or does it start from a FileMaker script?

    The file xxx could not be opened

    Other than manually adding entries, AFAIK they only get added when it asks you to locate a file and you point to a file.

    The file xxx could not be opened

    All files that are in the same folder should be referenced as file:filename. This applies to local or hosted files. Check the file references in all the files.
  11. If you want to select from a list of customers, then why not create a layout based on customers, displayed as a list. Bring this layout up in a new window -- card windows work well for this -- click a button to grab the customer ID, etc. Examples: https://www.google.com/search?q=FileMaker+picker+window

    The file xxx could not be opened

    First thing to do is check the file references: Manage > External Data Sources.
  13. Yes it's possible but I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do. It sounds like: 1. You click a record in a list, which takes you to a different layout. 2. You then want to display a dialog box (does it have to be a dialog?) 3. The user clicks a dialog button 4. This goes to another layout? 5. "bring the open positions on the bill" means nothing to me Have you looked at the script steps: Go to Layout / Show Custom Dialog, etc.?
  14. If that's all the script did, OK. But I've used globals to drive relationships in server-side scripts, for one example. And if I had to worry about those globals sticking around, that would kinda suck.
