    Counting filtered portal rows

    I created a global field and put the global field in the filtered portal, however the sum still shows the total number of portal records. I'm using FMP Advanced 13. Where is the problem?

    sharing container content

    No, the message came from fmp itself, saying another user is using the file. I would expect fmp would allow one user to edit the container content while other users could still open the content in read only mode, which is what one would get when two users open an excel file using excel itself. At the moment, all I could do is to add a button with a script to export the file content in the container and use the "automatically open file" option in fmp8. This way multiple users can view the same file at the same time. The problem with this work around is that any change in the file content won't be reflected in the original file since the updated file is saved in the exported file.

  3. Hi, Does anyone know how I can share the content (excel, word files, etc) inside a container with more than one user? I notice if more than one user try to open, say, an excel file inside a container, the second user would get a message saying it's used by another user. This would defeat the purpose of sharing information, which I find a critical shortcoming in fmp.

    scroll bar

    I'm not sure if global field is the solution since I want to display a field with a scroll bar for each record in iwp. I hope this would be addressed in the upcoming version of fmp. Regards, Clifford
  5. Does anybody know how to allow scrollbar in a field in iwp? I notice the scrollbar would appear only if the field is editable, but not in read only format. As such the field size becomes the limiting factor as one can't have more text inside than the field size. Regards, Clifford

    Basic Seperation for newbies...please

    I think one of the attractions of fmp7 is its ability to put multiple tables in one single file. I've found multiple files don't work properly with instant web publishing. Data separation may have its place in large dbms systems, but for most small business applications and rapid development, it makes no difference as long as the end result from the end user standpoint is the same. Regards, Clifford
  8. does anyone know how I can include a scroll bar in a text field in iwp? I notice the scroll bar simply disappears when I publish a text field with a scroll bar. This happens when the user is on a "read" only security level. If I log in with full access privilege, then the scroll bar would appear. regards, clifford

    html

    I would like to see the next version of fmp support native html as one of the supported data type. This would allow developers to build email function into fmp that can view html email or documents. regards, clifford

    instant web publishing

    yes, i did enable the related file, but i checked "do not display in iwp homepage" for the related file as i only want people to open the primary file. what i notice is the template shows each record correctly, but the related fields from the related file are blank, whereas the related fields from related tables of the same file are shown correctly. regards, clifford
  11. i'm developing a database for web publishing. i notice when i try to display data from a related file, it displays properly in local mode, but on the web, only the template is shown without the data. on some fields it would display an error message "file missing". does anyone know if iwp supports the display of related file data? regards, clifford

    tables

    is there a way to duplicate a table in a file? i find it very time consuming to duplicate a table by typing all the fields each time.

    fm mobile

    with millions of pda on the market, i find it hard to believe that fm is not putting more resources in the pda market segment. i also can't find any forum dedicated to fm mobile issues. regards, clifford
