  1. I need to be able to add a leading zero to a number ONLY if the number is a single digit ex. 1 needs to be 01 but 12 can stay as is. Any ideas out there?
  2. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! This is exactly what I needed!
  3. My initial problem is I have a scrolling text field that sometimes contains more data than the field size. The user needs to highlight a portion of the text to copy it to another field, but when that happens the scrolling field jumps back to the top and the user loses his place. My thought was that if I could capture the selection start through a script then I could also set the cursor back using the Set Selection script step to the correct possition.
  4. Has anyone been able to use the Get(ActiveSelectionStart)function with FileMaker Pro 9.03? In theory I should be able to have two field (one being the calculation) and another a text field. When I click into the text field and highlight a selection of text I should have a number showing me my start point in the calculation field?
  5. I have a layout with a button that adds a new window that shows a field with a scroll bar. Is there anyway to keep the cursor where I left off in the pop up window when I then click into the other layout? Thanks.
  6. Does anyone know of a calculation that when any number is entered, the result is the next highest EVEN whole number? Thanks!
  7. I am trying to create a stylesheet for an xml file. I have never done this before, so, I reduced the xml file down to one field to see if I could write the stylesheet. I am encountering one error message on the import and cannot figure out what it is. Can anyone help me? Thanks. xml.zip
  8. I have a Web based solution that allows the user to view records through a portal. When viewing more than 4,000 records, there are issues using Explorer causing some data to be garbled and buttons missing off the layout. There is no problem with this while using Safari or Firefox. Anyone have any experience with this problem using Explorer?
  9. I am having difficulty find a way to exit a script that incorporates a find. I want to be able to exit the script and return to browse mode if no records are found without the user having the option to "modify find" or "continue". Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
  10. Does anyone know how I might be able to get a count of the number of sub-summaries in a report? Fox example if I have a list of 100 records that are grouped into 20 different sub-summaries, I need to be able to extract the number 20. Thanks!
  11. First, determine the number of characters that your current field (field1) displays then create a calculation field such as this: Case( Length (field1) > x (your number); "Read More" ; "") make sure the field is a text field. You can then apply a script to the field that opens up that field in a new window (pop-up). Hope this helps.
