  1. I am after some advise on how I should manage our data transfers. We have a number of databases in the field that require data entry out on site and then a data download at the end of the day once the work is complete. These databases work in a runtime solution. We currently transfer data via e-mail. My issue with this is that we from time to time lose data from e-mails going missing. Because I can't network to the master system from the run time solution does anyone have a better more reliable way for me to do this?
  2. I have created pages using the site assistant. I need to change a field to be multi line, this is a comments section and look wise it will be better if it only goes for about 50 characters and then goes to the next line. When I change this is dreamweaver it gives me the error [color:red]The element type "xsl:for-each" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "". (XML-0030) File: addrecord.xsl Line: 217 Column: 16 What am I doing wrong?

    Page Editor

    Question, is there a program that is better for editing XML then Dreamweaver? I've had a few issues using this and was wondering of there is anything better.

    Value List

    How would I get a value list to appear on some fields. This will work rational to the login used. Also, Will this slow the database down? We have a database in version 6 and find that is it very slow loading the search page because of this.
  5. I want to be able to export the found sent in a returned search on my site. After a search the site goes to a list of the records, this is the found set I want to export. Is there a way to do this? I've have a look at other threads that make out that it can be done but aren't specific. I created the site using the Site Assistant so it is not very complex.
  6. I've created a site using the Site Assistant. This database is managing more then 500000 records and I want to stop people doing a search when the search fields are blank. When this happens it takes loads of time to return a result because it is finding all records. Is there a way to stop this. Or This database has many differnt access names (one for each client), is there a way to tell it to only find the records applicable to the person who's logged in? I think my 2nd request would be better so that the find can be a kind of "find all" option. But what ever is easier. Any help!
  7. So i am looking at something like this: Download It's still not working, i've detailed a bit more on what I am working with below: Database Name: Results Layout Name: Tests Table Name: Tests Field Name: Report (this is where the calculation is stored linking to the container field file) Any more help you can give is much appreciated! I am new to XML and really have no idea about the language.
  8. Yeah, I have created the site using the Filemaker Site Assistant.
  9. I'm still not sure on this. What should I be putting in "container"? And What is the Xpath? How do I work this out?
  10. I am trying to create a link to files stored in container fields. What I want is for the customer to see the record on the web and be able to click on the "link" to the stored file and have that start downloading. I have worked out what the link is, if I put it in the browser it downloads everytime. I just don't want people to have to cut and paste this into the browser. The link is stored in a calculation field in the database. I currently have this appear on the xml layout for the record. If you need more info let me know, but I think this covers it. Any help?
