  2. Hi all, I'd like to email a single record, layout intact and all fields included. Basically I have send an summary to the accountant and it would be a lot easier if I can do this without changing things etc. Can it be done or do I have to export to a different file type before emailing? If I have to do this can it go straight into a word doc or something? Many Thanks!

  9. Hi all, Hope someone can help me with this. I have two computer in the office running filemaker Pro. The problem is when the one that happens to be the slave (had to access the shared database vie remote) that computer is unable to get the shared scripts working. Essentially I have 2 databases, one for contacts and one for records. I've set up a script so you can copy the unique Contact ID and paste it in a new Record to automatically bring all contact infor over into appropriate fields in the Record. Can anybody help?

  13. Hi all, Every RECORD has a CONTRACT layout but not every record has a contract. So what I want to do is when I come to draw up a contract for a record I want to be able to use a button on the contract layout to find the last contract I did. I've been playing around with the sort records tool but it dosn't seem to like me! Can someone take me through step-by-step? Any ideas? Thanks!
  14. Can I just sort by the contract field and then copy and paste that number in my new record?
