  1. How to add next row

    Created a clone, cleared the container field, imported data into the clone. 762kb. Timesheets_Tester.fmp12.zip A "delete everything" relationship when you delete any record is NOT a good idea. The file has serious design problems, you need a proper table structure. The field list hints at what you're trying to do but it's a mess. Find a qualified developer. (Not volunteering)
  2. How to add next row

    One issue with file size is the global container field, 20MB, a FileMaker file MQOS Color Horse 2.fmp12
  3. It isn't clear which part of the process you are having trouble with. You did successfully upload them; but they won't open using open remote? You can't get them uploaded onto the server? You are using the FileMaker Server credential to upload; not the solution username/password? You upload from FileMaker Pro; not server admin.
  4. Thought you were saying you would start the thread! So - we'll see.
  5. You're welcome. Short answer re JSON; would adapt well. Have not pursued it yet. Yes, probably better to start a different thread, some examples might get submitted.
  6. Sometimes it's better to just recognize and accept current limitations, proceed to do a few minutes work, and get a clear, scripted solution. Which provides the result you need and provides a script that you can adapt, monitor in debugger, print, review, etc. See attached mod to your file. Sort_by_field_object_name_MODBFR.fmp12
  7. Strange portal link behaviour. Is it a bug?

    Not a bug. You're a novice. You exit script in the middle of your GTRR action. Don't.
  8. Table with many fields or table with generic field?

    "I can't think of any other way to do it." Wow. Well; we can; and you been repeatedly given correct instructions. Listen to what Laretta and Comment have told you.
  9. Adjustable Size Layout

    Though hosted, you can use the backup features of the server admin control panel to generate a clone; and download that.
  10. The 10 takes into account the entire length of the start phrase. But here's a file with a few script mods to consider, including a global field to determine which occurrence you are searching for. TestEmailParse_MODBFR.fmp12.zip
  11. Not necessarily. You can leave the field unformatted; and use simple templates and substitutions to apply different tab sets. You can even apply different tab sets to each line. See attached rudimentary example. ColumnFormats.fmp12
  12. Help with a find

    I would think that terms would be failed or passed. Seems a very unusual and inappropriate use of "win".
  13. showing scripts

    Impossible. You have not unchecked them all.Your screenshot, for instance, does not show the top of the script list.
  14. Self-Join Layout

    Not missing a step; missing a concept. You cannot do what you want.
  15. You will be invited if somebody thinks your contribution will be worthwhile.
  16. Recover opening files in the same window

    Hooray! Begone, thee vile app window!
  17. Un able to Export Reocrds as fmp12

    Your Windows version meets requirements? http://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-pro/pro-16-specifications.html
  18. Un able to Export Reocrds as fmp12

    Your example does not show that; and it is hard to tell whether you are using an extension in the file name.
  19. Un able to Export Reocrds as fmp12

    Did you actually try a different file name?
  20. Looping through Value List

    You will find the sentence more or less randomly included in help for specific design functions in previous versions. Rolling it up to a single blanket statement within the higher level Design Functions topic seems like a good idea. It seems clear to me that this is how it is intended to work; these are all old, unchanged functions. YMMV, of course.
  21. Looping through Value List

    It IS documented; but the topic has been elevated appropriately within the help structure. Look under the Notes section within the general Design Functions topic. •If you specify no filename (""), functions return results for the current file. As mentioned. That's what DOCUMENTED means.
  22. Looping through Value List

    Help seems to be inconsistent on this subject across versions. The referenced statement exists for ValueListNames help in previous versions; and these functions began in FM6. And it continues to function correctly.
  23. Looping through Value List

    Actually it IS documented. See FileMaker help, example here for ValueListNames. "If no parameter is specified for fileName, FileMaker returns results for the current file."
  24. Looping through Value List

    "Doesn't work" means what exactly? Also: for current file you can use ValueListItems ( ""; "quarter" ) Also: what exactly is the current file name - you are using non-recommended characters?
  25. Looping through Value List

    No. It should be an extremely simple problem and should work in all those versions. You are leaving out or wrong about some simple detail. Also; you mention a loop; but nothing about your solution uses a loop (yet). But the first step should work. i suggest you post your file or post an actual copy ( screenshot ) of your script.
