    trouble w/ FMS 5.5 and OSX Server

    I also saw this when I opened FMP5 to try and share the actual file. Maybe I have the server set-up incorrectly??? FileMaker Server quitting! Network initialization failed; an unexpected error occurred. Requested command has not been executed.

    trouble w/ FMS 5.5 and OSX Server

    event log for the server or FMS. I looked at the actual server and not sure what I am looking for??
  5. I just upgraded my mac 10.4 tiger to 10.4 Server. I used to host FMS 5.5 on the old OS and everything ran great. When I install FMS 5.5 on the new OS, it just keeps trying to start and never does. I also tried just installing FMP 5 and opening the db as a shared file and I can access it with web publishing on the network but can not connect remotely from a client machine running FMP? Any suggestions would be great as I can not find anything on the apple support site relating to FMS not running.

    new record portal to portal

    I agree but it is the limitation I have the 5.5 now. This, I am sure, will be better once I go to v8 and the use of tables vs. related db as tables. Thanks for the help and I will take a look at what you sent.

    new record portal to portal

    I may have mis-written this in the other post but I am able to create the first record (using db A layout with portals B and C) from information contained in fields from portal B to portal C. I should have also specified that I am using FM 5.5, the reason for the related files vs tables. I am converting to 8 over the next month but trying to figure this function out before I move everything into one db with tables. Which I am more comfortable using beceause I derived my db knowledge from ACCESS but enjoy FM better. So, I have the allow records for each relationship and portal. I am able to create the first record successfully, I just have a problem creating the second record in portal C. The reason for the portals is that db A is the main db for storing job ticket records with a JOB NUMBER. That job number is the basis of all shared db's and I need to create POs (db B and portal : and ORDERS (db C and portal C) that are related to db A JOB NUMBERS. I have the other related db's working as tables to store the data because there are multiple POs and ORDERS for each record in db A JOB NUMBERS. The ORDERS (portal C) are created in reference to PO's (portal and need to view both at the same time and they share data like AMOUNT, etc. Thought the overview might help in trying to resolve this. So again, when I am in db A's layout that has portal B and C, I click the button (that is a button for each record in the portal layout) on the first record and it does create the first record I need iin portal C. The problem is that when I go to the seconf record in portal B and click the button (to create the related record in portal C, just like I already did on the first record) It does not create the record in portal C. It seems like it goes to the next record in portal C but does not create a new record and carry the data from portal B. Sorry if that was long but i really need to get this resolved if I can or create another solution. thanks for the help!

    new record portal to portal

    I have a database with a layout that has 2 portals. We will call this db A, with related db B (portal and db C (portal C). I am trying to create records in portal C from data in portal B. Here is the script I have. I can get one record to be created correctly but can not get past that first one. I have a button for each record in portal B that performs: Go to Portal Row [select, "db C::field A"] Set Field ["db C::field B", db B::field B"] ...and there are a few other set field lines. My problem is that I can not create a second record regardless of how I try to set the Go to Record function or Go to Portal Row. The first one is fine, but I need to be able to do this multiple times and always want the button for the portal B fields to go to the next row in portal C to create a new record on portal C. Everytime I add the Go to Record command to create new record, it does the function in db A. any suggestions?

    Importing converted files as tables

    I tried the copy paste and that does not work. I event tried to select, then go to the file menu to copy and everything is grey'd out. am I missing something?

    Importing converted files as tables

    ok, I will try that. I really don't understand the FM7 thing. I used 8 to convert the 5.5 files. Can you not convert that version to 8? I want all the new features of 8. Do I have to rebuild a new one and copy/paste everything from the converted 7 files into a new 8 document?

    Importing converted files as tables

    ok, I got FMP 8. I am using FMP5.5 and converting those files to 8. I converted my main database. I followed the manual instructions to import tables. When I am in the define dialog box, I clicked on tables, and there is no import button as the manual says??? I also noticed that when i converted my main database, as well as the related files, they are labeled with a .fp7 extention as if they are FMP7 files and not 8. I also have a copy of 7 but not using that and going to move toward 8 and FPS8. any thoughts?

    Importing converted files as tables

    gotcha. How do you do it in FM8. It may be worth going to 8 instead of 7

    Importing converted files as tables

    I can not figure out how to import the related source files as table for one solutions. How did you do that? I have FM 5.5 converting to 7
