  1. Thanks, this solved the problem for me as well.
  2. Sorry I did not receive any response to the first post so renamed and posted again. The problem did not happen on client's computer but did reoccur when file transferred to my laptop running Windows 7 and FMP 18.
  3. The validation is set to allow specific values from a value list and not empty.. No, there is a script running which advises of the error after the alert appears, When you click OK, the screen returns to the entry box but then freezes and does not allow further action. All functions are frozen.
  4. When a field validation fails, alert is displayed then when clicking OK program freezes
  5. I am using FMP 18 Advanced and Windows 8.1. Client on Windows 10 does not seem to have the problem
  6. I have a field which has validation selected to only known values from a value list (populated from a separate field{Names} ) When I enter an invalid value or leave it blank, I get the alert dialog box from the field definition but then the program freezes and I cannot proceed. Valid values seem to work fine.
  7. Filemaker 18 now has a popup requesting delimiter information when importing records. I have created a database which has been used for 5 years by my clients, It has an import record script which the user could just run and everything populated properly, after choosing the required file. Now there are shown a new popup and asked to choose delimiters. They now have to know which to choose and it is an extra step which is frustrating for the user. Is there any way to use a default delimiter as it is always the same type of file (tab delimited .txt) imported.
  8. Thank you very much. It appears that the overlay marker script can be modified to my purposes. I will have to review the scripts to determine exactly how it works.
  9. I have a layout with an imported picture(container field) and want the USER to be able to add an object on top of the picture at the position they click with the mouse. i.e. Place a Cross or X at the mouse position. I believe I can create the script activated by a script trigger, but can't seem to find how to determine the position of the mouse when clicked ?
  10. I know I have done this in the past but can't find my notes. Is there a simple method of displaying the running count of records grouped by category and resetting each time category changes. i.e. DVD's grouped and sorted by category and title. Want the count to reset to 1 each time a new Category is displayed. I realize I can create a Script to run each time I use the report and create a field which is updated with the appropriate number but wonder is there an easier way. The option of using "Restart Summary for each Sorted Group" on the Summary field does not seem to be available.
  11. DUUHHH ! Thanks that did it ! : P.S. Didn't mean to shout was using caps lock earlier !
  12. : FOR SOME REASON THE SCROLL BARS ARE NOT VISIBLE WHEN A PORTAL IS CREATED AND MORE RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE TO VIEW. IF YOU SELECT THE AREA TO THE RIGHT OF THE PORTAL THE RECORDS SCROLL BUT THE SCROLL ARROWS DO NOT APPEAR. I HAVE CHECKED FONTS AND BACKGROUND COLORS ETC... BUT NO JOY ! ANYONE ELSE WITH THIS PROBLEM ? THE SHOW VERTICAL SCROLL BAR IS CHECKED !!!
  13. I currently have 5 Macs accessing One database Host and for some reason two of the Computers occasionally have the following error show up "Communication with the Host was interrupted & could not be re-established..." They cannot determine what actions cause the error. At times they are not even accessing the Host..
  14. Thanks for the Info. I noticed some of this same behaviour on some of my other scripts ! I was wondering re: the program shutdown when "REMOTE" import from one table into another. If using the "COMMIT RECORD" step would have any effect on this problem. Unfortunately my client is in another city and I don't have access to a local network right now to test my theory ?
  15. Hi Lwlgeorge, I am having the exact same problem with trying to use a "HOST" computer and 5 remote computers for data entry and have installed the 7.0v2 patch. I tried about 20 different relationships and nothing worked. Can you briefly describe the relationship/looping procedure you refer to ?
