  1. Yes, that did it. Thanks. Still making the jump from 6 to 9 :
  2. I have a database in FMP9A which stores records for individuals and a related table which stores incidents. In the table for individuals, I have a GUID field which holds 20 repetitions to store the unique identifiers assigned to each individual. A portal is used to create related records in the incident table. Incidents are logged by GUID. Since one individual can be associated with multiple GUIDs, I currently have a value list created from the GUID field, but this list contains all the GUIDs for each individual in the database and gets cumbersome to navigate. I don't need to see all the other GUIDs that aren't associated with the individual when logging an incident. Is there a way to create a value list that contains only values from the repeating field on the current record?
  3. Hello, I am trying to create a schedule builder that will display a schedule when given various college classes. So far, I have the database structured as follows: 2 Databases: Schedule and Courses. The Courses database contains a record for each course offered. The Schedule database is where I would like to assemble the data in such a way as to build a weekly schedule. Currently, I have eight fields to choose courses in the Schedule database - the idea being that six to eight courses represent a typical semester's load. I then created a relationship for each of these eight fields to the Courses datanase, matching records using a unique CRN (Course Request Number). In the Courses database, the days and times each class meets are listed in fields labeled Day 1, Start 1, End 1 (for example, a class that meets on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 AM to 10:50 AM would have Day 1 = "Tuesday", Start 1 = 9:30 AM, End 1 = 10:50 AM, Day 2 = "Thursday", Start 2 = 9:30 AM, End 2 = 10:50 AM) What I want is to be able to take this data and display it in a schedule form. In essence, I want to have a weekly schedule that displays the hours of 8:00-5:00 of each day of the week, and as I change the courses I'm enrolled in, I want them to fill in the appropriate slots in the schedule. A few notes: Classes may have multiple different starting and ending times. For instance, a class may meet from 9:00 to 9:50 on Monday, but 2:30-3:50 on Thursday. Thus, every day needs to have its own start and end time. Also, classes only start on the hour or half-hour. My first attempt at this seems rather irrational and I'm sure there's a better way to do it. What I did is create a calculation field in the Schedule table for each time slot for each day of the week for each course selected. For instance, there would be 8 different fields for 8:00 AM on Monday. Each one would check its respective related record to see if one of the days was equal to Monday and the start time was 8:00 AM. If so, it would display the course name in that slot. Then, the same thing for 8:30 AM, 9:00 AM, and every half-hour from there on. It works, but there are two problems with this: first, it adds up to a lot of calculation fields in the Schedule table - 400 of them to be exact. The other thing is, this system will only work as long as classes start only on the hour or half-hour. Ideally, I would like to get this system down to a point where it becomes significantly less awkward and (if possible) gets rid of its dependency on classes starting on the hour or half-hour. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a screenshot of what my first try looks like. I have also posted the databases here so you can take a look in case I lost you with my descriptions: http://download.repository1.com/public/fmp/Calendar.zip A final note: I have both Filemaker 6 and 8.5 Advanced, so a solution for either version will work for me. Thanks again!

    Printing related data

    I'm still not quite understanding... in my Project databases, the "Participants" field, which records who contributed to which project, is a single repeating field. I need a quick way to print individual reports for 150 individuals.

    Printing related data

    I have a three-database system in which I have one file containing personnel records, one record per person. I have two related databases for project managers to record projects and project hours (one project per record), and log who worked on which project and how many hours they should be credited for. In the personnel records database, I have a portal that lists the projects each individual worked on. How can I print out a report for each individual that contains the same data as that portal? Often there are more related records than the number of portal rows I have set.

    Admin is only the password to gain full access to the file - it will not work in the login system itself. Once you have full access to Access.fp5, run the script that says Show Status Area, then switch layouts. You will be able to see the logins I created.
