  1. Ummm... I tried that... good suggestion. But it was a no-go. The field is not in a group. Somehow this thing is shadowed and I just can't figure it out! What can I try next?? I'm going nuts!! TIA! Charisma
  2. I have a field in FM 5 that refuses to de-shadow itself. I have checked in Object Effects and in Borders... nothing is set to shadow. Any clues as to how I can fix this? TIA! --Charisma
  3. Well, that's a bummer, but I appreciate your response. Thank you!
  4. OK. I understand now. I have one more question, though. If I run a Create/Replace script to fill in the date for the currently existing records to create this field and populate it, will it enter each record's specific creation date or will it set them all to today because that is when the script is being run? TIA! You guys have been so much help!! --Charisma
  5. So a user ould have to specifically enter a date in a field called "creationdate" or something? And only then will it be searchable? There isn't an internal Filemaker variable called Creationdate or whatever? I just want to create a find based on the creation date of existing records. How would someone go about this?
  6. No wonder I seem to be having a problem. LOL. Anyway, so if I was to build a script for this Find, what might it look like? The CreationDate(date) function, I mean. TIA! Charisma
  7. OK, so maybe this is the lamest question ever, but how can I do a find for all records that were created on a certain date? Does Filemaker 5 keep track of this? What is the field name? Does it have to be included in the layout to be serachable? What is the best way to build this find? I tried looking through the forum but counldn't find the answer to this question... probably because it's a really eay solution and a no-brainer and no one else needs help with it. Still, I could use the boost... so please post an answer if you can... Thanks! --Charisma
  8. I was wondering... I am having trouble program sharing FM 5.5... is it a networkable program? We have only installed it on one computer, we are just trying to get everyone to access it. If it is... what settings are we missing? We have activated File Sharing, activated the proper groups and set the executables and proper files to be shared. Any ideas? Thanks! KC
  9. Please see my post in FM Pro thread: http://www.fmforums.com/threads/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB26&Number=47191&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=186&fpart=1 thank you!
  10. I would like to be able to take a PDF form and use that as data entry to a FM Pro 5.5 db. I would also like to be able to output data from FM Pro 5.5 to a PDF form. Is this possible? If so, can I connect them without using a Web server?
  11. I was wondering if it is possible to connect Acrobat 5 (Mac) forms to FM Pro 5.5 (Mac) without using a web server?? If so, what are the steps involved? And if it cannot be done without a Web server, what server could I use with OS9.1 and what would be the steps from there? (I am normally a PC person and am finding myself floundering a bit... your help is appreciated) TIA, KC
  12. Hi there... yes, I am STILL working on the billing and employee db I have been working on, but actually, I can see the light now. Anyway, I do have a question, if someone has the time... Sometimes in an accounting system, although standard values are pulled to a field via calculations, the financial person in charge of data entry may want to change the value. Is it possible to create a calc field that allows a user to change the value? I can't imagine this hasn't come up previously, so I am hoping that one of you will be able to help me. TIA, KC
  13. I am trying to get a count of unique employee ID numbers for those employees who not only work at a specific site, but whom also have an AM work schedule. In the employees file, I have all of their personal info as well as their expected regular schedules. So, I developed the following CASE statement, trying to get the count (Monday AM is the field that holds each employee's Monday arrival time): CASE ( Site = "Austin" and Monday AM > 0, Count(Employee ID), Site = "Rochester" and Monday AM > 0, Count(Employee ID), Site = "San Francisco" and Monday AM > 0, Count(
  14. I am still working on the ledger I have been building, but I am very close now to completing it. I currently have a situation where a Calculation field called "Debit" will not hold the value I give it. I have worn out my patience with it and will now hope that after some explanation, someone here will be able to help me. I have three files: "employees" - Holds all info about the company's employees; each employee has a unique ID. In addition, this file holds the general "schedule" that the employee has agreed to, as well as calculations of how many hours he is working per week and
