  1. So had exactly the same problem, SUFeedURL etc. Tried all of the above to no avail, turned out that removing all the plugins from the various plug in folder versions fixed it. I have versions 12 - 16 installed on my OSX 10.11.6 machine. Should note that just removing the plugins from the version 16 folder failed to solve the problem, have a hunch this is the MBS plugin, but only guessing at this stage... I shall introduce them back one at a time to figure out which of them is affecting the launch. Seems this is an ongoing issue with various versions of FM installers, found refe
  2. I think I have found the problem - it was file type! I had used an xlsx to set up the import and then specified xls in the import options... nothing to do with naming conventions. Thanks for looking though.
  3. Hi Am running FMS12 - I found the post regarding server import export and have followed these instructions. http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/64713-server-side-imports-and-exports/ However the script that I set up to import a file is failing, I believe this is because it is not finding the file to import, although I get no error only a time out, and given the test is for but 100 records am certain that it is not because of inadequate time to run it. I have tried: Setting up a variable to Get (DocumentsPath) & "[filename].xls" Have added "file:" and "filewin:" types to precede that s
  4. Thank you for your response - we were beginning to suspect network troubles; it is good to know what this particular error code refers to. Yes this is multiple machines across the entire network, so we are looking into the switches. Thanks again.
  5. We are experiencing regular disconnect errors, but I cannot find any information on error (10). Can anyone shed any light on this please? We have a PC Windows 2008 R2 server FMS 12 and up to 100 FMP clients, predominantly Mac OS 12.05, but also PC FMP 12 clients too. Thanks
  6. Hi I had the same problem - solved the problem in the value list setup 'include only related values starting from:' - well they were all previously set up from the initial relationship 'current table' which used to show as 'unknown' but now you have to do it as it was intended and select the table from which the related value starts. Hope this makes sense, I'm sure this will make more sense when you get into the value list setup.
  7. OK fixed this - it seems that the 'include only related values starting from' needed completing from the original table - was very simple in the end.
  8. I have also been able to replicate this in brand new files using data separation. See attachedTestDBs.zip
  9. One crucial thing I forgot to say, is that I use the data separation model - data in one file the interface in another; I have since been able to replicate this problem in another set of files... is this me or FMP12??
  10. Recently upgraded from version 11 FMP to v12 - all went well apart from the fact that all value lists based upon a relationship have stopped functioning. Standard value lists are fine. This happens across the whole system and I am baffled by this. If I add a portal to the layout showing the related records they appear just fine, however I can no long get them to appear from a drop down menu. An example is that I have a job table, a company is associated via a CompanyID, there is another table of contacts that are linked companyID to companyID in the contacts table and in the job table the
  11. Hi I have a problem whereby I have a table called Stock that calculates a total stock based upon records in another table - account ledger. It is slightly quirky in that the portal has a global date field that is part of the relationship so that it restricts records to all those less than the date specified as well as a stock code match. I do this so that I can run a report on the account ledger table, but want to eliminate all stock with a '0' positions. In my script I go to the stock table, then constrain the found set to omit those with a total = 0, then view all matched account ledger r
  12. The files do still crash using pier to pier sharing, although they do not corrupt. I have completely rewritten the data file from scratch, no copying, no importing tables or scripts. When I linked this back to the interface I effectively had to re-do the relationships and revisit every script to relocate the fields and re-save every one of them. Each layout was also revisited to relink the correct fields in the views. The only part of the interface file I didn't re-do was the layouts themselves - this file has no data and no bad blocks can what is effectively an empty file be causing the probl
  13. I have written a bespoke solution for a client called ADG. This has a two file structure, interface and a data file. These are constantly crashing and taking down the server too; this has become so bad that the client has resorted to client copy as a host as while this still crashes often the files do not corrupt when doing so. The situation is no longer workable, I have tried everything I know to resolve this problem including a complete rewrite of the data file, checking all of the layouts and rewriting many of the scripts along with the following, which has been sent to FileMaker support wh
  14. I have logged a support issue with FileMaker. I was advised to clone the files as this ensures that they are true version 10 and then reimport the data. This has definitely improved things, by about 90% I would say, but the crashing hasn't gone away completely. I have two theories that it is either because this client has many unusual print drivers (they are a large format output company) or it is something conflicting with the sharing. I'll let you know if I get any further with this. Still would appreciate any further input from wise heads!
  15. If I create a new file and import the tables will this import the problems? Would I be better to use the developer tools to create a new version from the original?
