  1. Hi, Here is a custom function that I found on Briandunning.com. The problem is when I try to create a new function with this code, Filemaker refuses it saying The "here" above is situated before the parentheses after "WordWrap" and before "UnprocessedText". Would someone be kind enough to tell what I'm missing here to get this up and running? Let ([ TruncatedText = Left ( Text ; Size + 1 ) ; CountOfSpaces = PatternCount ( TruncatedText ; " " ) ; CountOfReturns = PatternCount ( TruncatedText ; "¶" ) ; PositionOfLastSpace = If ( CountOfReturns > 0 ; Position ( TruncatedText ; "¶" ; 1 ; 1 ) ; Position ( TruncatedText ; " " ; 1 ; CountOfSpaces ) ); AddReturn = If ( CountOfReturns > 0 ; "" ; " ¶" ); ThisLine = Trim ( Left ( TruncatedText ; PositionOfLastSpace ) ) ; UnprocessedText = Right ( Text ; Length ( Text ) - PositionOfLastSpace ) ; Result = If ( Length ( Text ) ≤ Size ; Text; ThisLine & AddReturn & WordWrap ( UnprocessedText ; Size ) ) ]; Result ) Sorry everyone. Please dismiss my post. I just realised that I was trying to include "WordWrap" as a function parameter and as the function name. All's well.
  2. Well the web viewer appears to be the culprit. But that doesn't resolve my problem as I would like the script to work and keep the web viewer. Any ideas on how to do that
  3. No onTimers, but there is a web viewer.
  4. There you go. There are plenty of others should this not be helpful. filemaker crash log.rtf
  5. Hmm Error capture doesn't seem to offer any help. The scripts still work perfectly well in previous versions of FM. I have backups and the oldest backup I could find, more than a year old, behaves in the same manner. The same scripts make FM15 crash.
  6. Sorry for being a dummy, but how do you access the FM crash log? I've just googled it and found nothing. Of course you're right about copy and paste. It just goes to show how old some of these scripts are, they were made before variables were part of FM and I've never got around to correcting them. That is not the reason for the crashing as I've just corrected it and it still happens.
  7. I have a number of scripts that have worked perfectly for years in previous versions of FileMaker, however in FMP 15 they causse FM to crash. They only way I have found to avoid the crash is to use the debugger and to use the "step into" button. That of course is a very cumbersome workaround. You can see one of the culprits below. Anyone have any ideas what's wrong here?
  8. FMPA 14 and 15. Same with both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello, Stange situation here. After reinstalling FMS15 to resolve an issue, one of my FMPA clients on just one of my computers displays "connection failed" when trying connect to the available databases on the server when trying to connect with the local ip adresse. All while several other computers have no problem doing the same. The FMPA client that has the issue has no problem connect to available databases via an external ip address. I have never seen this before and can't find any meaningful information on this by googling. Would anyone have any idea what's going wrong here? The error appears to be (51) on FMS.
  10. Webdirect stopped working

    Just reporting that redoing the upgrade to OS 10.2.2 and the doing a "dirty" FMS install (i.e. not clean) seems to have resolved the issue.
  11. Webdirect stopped working

    No I don't have OSX Server running. Here is what is using port 80 All this appears to me, (but what do I know) associated with FMS.
  12. Webdirect stopped working

    Hmm. My problem keeps reappearing. When I try to edit deployment the web server fails with the following error message: Any ideas what may be provoking this?
  13. Webdirect stopped working

    Thanks for all that. A clean reinstall fixed the issue.
  14. Hello, I have a FMS 15.03 running on Sierra. I recently upgraded the OS from 10.12 to 10.12.2. As soon as I did this Webdirect stopped functioning. The webdirect URL gives a "404 not found" error message. I have tried downgrading the system from Time Machine backups to 10.12.1 but to no avail. I have checked all the troubleshooting items that can be found here. There is nothing I can find that would impede webdirect's functionality. Would anyone have any idea what might be amiss? Or any ideas for getting Webdirect back up and running?
  15. "save records as PDF" provoking error

    Would you know what the criteria is for creating layouts that work for PDFs. I work on Macs.
