  1. Are you sure you are seeing all records and not just found records (Records/Show All Records) Any backups? If records are deleted they are gone. (FileMaker has no deleted files folders etc)
  2. Just finished a 250 person contact list and I thought I could export straight from FM to Excel the formatted title case of names,address and city. (my actual typing was all lower case). Was I wrong. Would have been a disaster. Thanks so much. I must contribute $$ to this forum.
  3. I've read the discussions on sliding but I just can't make it work with the attached sample we are proposing to use for our school student directory. I tried it in a number of layouts but can't eliminate the white space within each record. Directory_07-08.zip
  4. Try http://www.databasepros.com/. John has some free solutions that may be what you are looking for.
  5. I have a value list (company) that has grown too big and I want to move it to a new table. I didn't know it at the time, but I should have created a separate company with a relationship and a pop-up menu from the project table to the company table. I know how to create the relationship but how do I move the company data to the new Company table and still keep it connected with each original project record. I tried auto-enter, calculated result, COMPANY::company = PROJECT::company but it doesn't seem to work across tables.
  6. My problems were very similar to Brett W's screen shot. Screen refreshing at random especially when switching from layout to browse and back again. The particular problem file has lots of imported graphic borders and buttons. Another database file I have uses only FM's own buttons and borders tools and it is problem free going back to FM 7 where it was created.
  7. Using 6.1 having upgraded from 5.5. Had same issue before upgrade.
  8. I also have the same problem. Also for Quicken. I think it may be related to a wireless Microsoft mouse. Quicken had a workaround - lowering the acceleration rate on video card (causes other problems). I just ended the ipoint.exe process in Task Manager. It solves the problem but disables some mouse button features.

  11. Thanks comment. I've had the honor of seeing your work in these forums.Your solution was perfect. I kept thinking it was a complicated solution when it was a tool already built into FM menus.
  12. Sorry I wasn't clear. My question is how to manually de-select or select some records from a found set. For example like choosing random items from a shopping list.
  13. Our company tracks TV programs. Each record has information like show name; producer; distributor; assessment notes. There are created date and modified date fields. Sometimes we only have show names to start with and only pass this show information on to clients when all the information is complete (exported to a PDF as they don't use FileMaker). There are hundreds of shows and I want to be able to select them based on 2 found sets. 1. the most recently created AND the most recently modified. (I have no problem doing this.) 2. Manually de-selecting some records from this set (this is my problem). I created a single check box for each record (which I did using a single box from a value list) then did a new find for just those records that were checked, till I realised that this changes the modication date for future searches.
  14. I have a value list on the current table that has become too large, so I have transferred the list to a separate table with each item being an individual record. I have set up a relationship between the two tables and a drop-down list that can access this table. My problem is that I wish to retain the existing data from that value list for the current records but be able to utilize the new method for new records and perhaps even change previous ones. Unfortunately changing the field drop-down list from the old value list to the new one causes the old data to disappear.
