  1. Hi, I'm sure if this question belongs to this topic....but here it goes. My database is ultra slow after I changed it to a multi user database. I have a total of 20 fields in the database. 10 of those fields are the "original" fields and the other ten are a calculation version of the "original" fields. I do this to prevent people to be able to edit the data but can still be able to search. Would anyone know is the slowness from the calculation fields or from the multi user being selected. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, I currently have a portal that shows 4 fields from another database (ie Order Number, Order Type, Product, Biller). I have a global field called g_biller in the database which contains the portal. As I type a different name into the g_biller field, the portal shows the records that belongs to the biller. Is it possible for the portal to show a specific biller AND a specific product at the same time. So it's like a find with 2 separate field but with a portal? I'm using FM4.1 Thanks
  3. Hi, Is there any way for filemaker to run a script at exactly 12am or any other set time? Thanks
  4. I have a layout with lots of field that has to be locked to prevent guests editing them. But is there a way to keep them locked and still be able to search the field?
  5. Hi, I created a field that uses the Today function. The problem is that for this field to automatically update, I have to close and reopen the database everyday. Now this database serves as a host and others connect to it via TCP/IP. Is there any way of it recalculating the Today field without restarting the host database? or for the guests to recalculate with closing the host? Any replies would be very much appreciated.
