  1. Does anyone know of a way to script the creation of a new layout? What I want to do is allow the end user to create new form letters as layouts on their own without giving them full design rights. Any help would be wonderful. Thank you. Sarah
  2. Thanks for the advise. Currently it is showing the Country selected on the Supplier record, but I don't want it to do that. I would like it to be blank and then the end user select it because there may be a situation where the contact isn't located in the same country (I know, that sounds strange). Is there a way you know of that I can make it work the same way, but not be linked to the Supplier record? (I agree. Maybe I'll go ahead and make that change.)
  3. Hey all. I'm not real familiar with relationships and I'm having an issue that I'm not sure how to fix. First - I have a table for Country/Country Code so the end user can enter Countries (to populate drop down field in other tables) to their Country calling codes Second - I have a table for Supplier Information. On the entry screen for Supplier Information the end user selects the Country from a drop down and the Country Code is auto filled Third - I have a table for Contact Information. Idealy I would like the entry screen for the Contact Information to work the same way where a user selects the Country from a drop down and the Country Code is auto filled. This is where I'm having the problem. I have the following relationships going on between these tables. Country/Country Code::Country = Supplier Information::Country Supplier Information::Supplier Key = Contact Information::Supplier Key How do I make the connection from Country/Country Code::Country to Contact Information::Country? Hope I've explained this correctly. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. Sarah
  4. Thanks. I don't know how I missed that.
  5. Hey all. Could anyone tell me if it's at all possible to have today's date show (//) in the format July 5, 2006? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Thanks Vaughan. I knew it would be a security issue, but I didn't know if it were possible. Our end users are always forgetting their password for one system or another and I wasn't sure if there was a way to log it.
  7. Hey all. I was wondering if there was a way to log account passwords. Sarah
  8. I'm looking to do this exact thing. I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas. Thanks. Sarah
  9. I know it's been a really long time since the last post on this subject, but I was wondering if someone could give me a little more insight on bonngo's response. Would this actually work? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Sarah
  10. Hey all. I'm having a problem figuring out how to calculate a percentage. Here's the senario. I have a database that I am doing summary based on Vendor and I need to figure out what percentage the Vendor total is of the grand total. Can anyone offer some advise on how to do this? Thanks. Sarah
  11. Hi all. I've gottn the following to work... If [isEmpty(TrimAll(Substitute(Country::gNew;¶;" ");0;0))] but, how would I get this to work if I have also have a second field (gNew2) that needs to work the same way? I know I'm probably just thinking about this too much, but I've tried several things and non of them are working. Thank you in advance for any help your able to offer. Sarah
  12. Thanks John and Mav. Mav that's exactly what I thought of that made me decide to just create a script for each function(button) I need to use and then calling those using script parameters in one script. Sort of a centralized place to run from, yet separate scripts for easy modification. Thank you all for your help. Sarah
  13. Thanks John. I think you're right. Being new to scripting and FMP it's probably less confusing separating it out then to keep track of where I am in one large script. What does HTH stand for?
  14. Yes, is it better to have all the functions listed in one large script and use script parameters to call a section that applies or is it better that a button just call a script that performs the task. I guess I could have the separate scripts for each button and then call them by using a script parameter in a type of universal script too. I just don't know. I'm pretty new to FMP and am just trying to figure out what the best way is to get the job done.
  15. I have several tables tied to one database and for each of these table I have maintenance screens which contain function buttons (New button, Delete button, ect.). Is it better to create scripts that perform each function (new, delete, ect.) for all the tables in the database or is it better to have one script that performs all functions for a given table? This is probably a matter of opinion, but is there a programming standard that is used in the FMP world?
