  1. You need to convert your "specialized" sort order into a list filemaker can interpret and sort correctly. Try a new calculation field: Case (status = "Open", 1, status = "Pending", 2, status = "Closed", 4, 3) Then sort on the calculation field.

    I need some Help

    What I think you want is to be able to choose a type of window (Glass Order) from a drop down list and enter a qty ordered. Then have the Assembly List for that type of window updated to the correct quanities. ie. If the Assembly List for a Type A 48" x 40" Window contained: - 8 9/16" C screws - 2 20" x 20" panes of glass - 1 40" x 48" weather strip Then if a customer ordered 3 Type A 48" x 40" windows the order would print out 3 Type A 48" x 40" Windows 24 9/16" C screws 6 20" x 20" panes of glass 3 40" x 48" weather strips Is this what you are after?

    refreshing summery field in a layout?

    I figured out my problem. I didnt have a portal on my layout for the relationship used in the summary field calculation. Added a portal with nothing in it to the layout and now the sum calculation updates correctly.

    Filtering lookup lists

    Set the Validation options for the field Turkey_ID in tbl_Orders: Uncheck - Allow user to override check - Unique Value check - Display custom message; and enter "Sorry, this Turkey is already spoken for, please choose a different gobbler" To filter Turkeys that are spoken for you could add another filed to tbl_turkeys named Available with a default value of "Y" which would be changed to "N" if a Turkey was assigned to a customer. Then add Available = Y to your relationship between tbl_Turkey and tbl_Orders.
  6. Copy your current database to a new file, then edit new file as follows: Export any number of records to a temp file to setup the file format you want to export to and your field export order. Define a new field New1 as a calculation = Get ( RecordNumber ); Set Storage option to - Do Not Store Calculation Results Make a new script: loop ...Show All Records ...Perform Find - Specify that New1 < 251 ...Export Records - check Perform without Dialog, Specify your export order ...Delete All Records End Loop Run the script. you will have to name each file but it will export 250 records at a clip.
