  1. I fixed this for myself, It was running so slowly that I uninstalled FM and re-installed it. Problem solved.
  2. I am finding that my new install of FM19 is very slow. when I go into manage database I have to wait for the fields to populate for about 30 seconds. Is anyone else getting this slow behavior?
  3. There is a business there for someone to sell this server With FM19. I’m sure people could get one out the door for a couple of thousand ready to use. Most people including me don’t want the hassle of setting up Linux, as they don’t know it. The only thing they will want on it will be FileMaker server.
  4. There was a piece of tin, all set up, I’m not sure was FMs installed or not, but you basically plugged it in and it was ready for use. From what I remember it was not expensive and worked very well because it was Linux
  5. If I remember correctly, back in the days of Filemaker 5 there was a linux server made for use as a ready for use machine. Is there anything like that being made today?
  6. Can Someone give us the highlights of the presentation? I would very interesting to see what everyone thinks of our Filemaker future.
  7. I too am looking for a solution that can do the same. We are offering a large Filemaker Project covering, Inventory, aftersales and article kits (making one article out of different articles). There will be a large CRM content to this also. We are based in Ireland. I will probably hand the entire project over to whoever can manage it as I don't have the time to put into this project. It will need to work alongside a current sales entry system. We can give you a lot more detail when we start this project together.
  8. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried this before. I need to import about 20 ledgers into Filemaker. This would obviously be very expensive if someone had to type out all of the pages line by line, (I would say 6 months of work). Does anyone here know of a means of scanning it into filemaker or Excel in order to create the database that we need?
  9. To fill you in a little more. We have up to 20,000 articles in a year most of which are unique in other words we make it, sell it and it becomes history. Others can be long standing lines with years of history. Nothing is high volume total units on the most prolific items is 200 or so. The movements table means that I will have fewer movements to count if you consider a 10 year history.
  10. I am looking at a solution for inventory. One important request is that they need to be able to calculate the inventory for previous dates. E.g. the beginning of the quarter compared to today or this day last year. My thoughts so far to be able to do this is to have an article file and a stock movements file, all values and quantities of stock will be held in the movements file. Basically the last related record will be in the movements table will be current value, but we can also find the last related related record based on any date. Will this be a fast way to calculate or slow? I don't want to start and then find things slow down on me too much. After this I will also need to be able to age the stock.
  11. I will have about 15 users. But each will creating a lot of data.
  12. I have a couple of questions before I take the plunge back into Filemaker after a long absence. When purchasing the annual contract can someone explain what a user is? Is it the number of people that can use filemaker at one time or does everyone that will want to get online need a separate licence? For instance would I need one licence when I access from at home and one from work. I might have many people sharing machines etc. Also there is a limit of "2 GB outbound data transfer per user, per month — tracked annually." What is this telling me? My databases will tend to be quite large as we use thousands of hi-res photographs.
  13. I want to set up a simple database for use on android devices. I’ll use web direct but would need to get customer signatures, is this possible?
  14. We are a high end jewellery business and I am about to start a project to cover the entire business. The first part of this project will be calculating stock in multiple branches. I will need to be able to calculate the stock values and quantities for different dates at all times, so for instance today is 31st January 2017, how do my stock levels compare to 31st January 2016. Most stock is made up of one off pieces although some repeating products might have 20 years of history and up to 100 sales. There would generally be up to 15,000 different articles in stock at any one time, but I feel I should be thinking about growth in this area. I know that I am asking a huge question for a forum, instead I am asking where should I look for answers to this? At the moment I imagine a movements table, that will have the fields, Date of movement Entry Qty Sale Qty Sale Return Qty Exit Qty Correction Qty (this is for when things don't give us the correct answer)
  15. A barcode scanner is supposed to just mimic the keyboard. So it should work
