  1. thieInthiel, Be sure to check that your company file in fact has the custom fields defined. Your scripting is properly making the request, all you would need to do is provide an "OwnerID" of "0" just after the last IncludeRetElement call. Best, -PCIPal
  2. Oliver, The demo file was intended for limited scope use. Unfortunately, there are no other demo files available at this time. PCIPal
  3. Stickybeak, Usually,the dropbox folder is stored in either the main volume (on Mac) or in the “Computer” / “My PC” / “This PC” section of the Windows file xplorer. I would check there and see if you can get the path of the Dropbox deployment for each machine, and then use those in his solution. Dropbox is a bit touchy, and using FIleManip with it might be tricky. PCIPal
  4. Hello KylePMerck, From what you have written, it seems like everything should be working correctly. We recommend checking to see if any recent installations or updates have knocked anything loose. Sometimes, new Windows updates can mess with things we don't want them to. You may also want to try a reinstall of the plugin and/or the U.ARE.U dependencies and see if your reader has any sort of damage to it. PCIPal
  5. Hello Stickybeak, You can try having the GetFiles function in an unsorted calc. You can have the call to GetFiles embedded within the definition of an unstored calculation field, and display that on the layout. That should keep a running list of files, but might also impact performance due to running the calculation constantly. You can, alternatively, have the GetFiles function put in an on-timer script, or as part of a script trigger, so any time you load a specific layout, you get a fresh update of the file list.
  6. Hi Limore, I just answered this question in your other request, using the PCAB_GetListOfValues function from the Address Book Manipulator plug-in. Original post: Thanks! - Chris Turner
  7. Hi Limore, The PCAB_GetListOfValues function requires three parameters: the record type, an indicator of getting either groups or members, and the field to retrieve. In your case, you would use the function call "PCAB_GetListOfValues( "Person" ; "Groups" ; "Name" )", which should return the list of groups names that the person belongs to. Keep in mind that you need to make sure to open the contact record before accessing the list. I hope this helps! - Chris Turner
  8. San Diego, CA – April 4, 2019 - Productive Computing, Inc. a Platinum Member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, is proud to announce the completion of its FileMaker Certification Preparation course. This course addresses the eight parts of the exam and is intended to help FileMaker developers study for and increase their chances of passing the FileMaker Certification Exam. Kalos Consulting, the top recruiting company for FileMaker developers, says, “Being certified can make you a top contender for open positions. For top hiring FBA Platinum companies, certification is strongly preferred. For companies that do not require certification prior to being hired, there is the expectation to become certified after a few months. Sometimes a company may look at a certification as a trade-off to having a college degree.” The FileMaker Certification Preparation course utilizes visual aids, engaging examples, and memory techniques to help the student retain and recall the information during the exam. "Believe me, exam taker, without seeing this course you'll never get the hidden meaning of lots of functions. Studying functions by reading or even practicing on your own is boring! But with this way of teaching, you'll like it. Thanks, P.C. guys for your efforts." Sayed Bondok This course extrapolates and expands on the information provided in the FileMaker Certification Study Guide to give the student a well-rounded understanding of what to focus on for the FileMaker exam. "I took [this] course to prepare for my certification. Even [when the course] was not yet complete, I studied the modules available [and]… I passed the certification exam! I cannot thank Productive Computing enough. I look forward to the next version of FileMaker and the next course! Thank you very much." Pierre Colin, Interface International. When asked why this course was created, CEO and PCU Instructor Marc Larochelle said, “It has been my dream to provide a comprehensive, purpose-built certification training course for FileMaker developers. After studying for the AWS exam, I realized how powerful it is to have specialized, online training and I felt that it was something missing in the FileMaker community.” The certification course is available as part of the University Bundle, which gives a student access to all training courses at Productive Computing University. Students who are interested in taking this course and would like more details can sign up for the free Certification Overview course.

  9. Hi BoloMan28, It looks like you have the APAccountRef field out of order with the intended structure of the BillPaymentAdd request schema. You need to specify the APAccountRef field after PayeeEntityRef and before TxnDate. Thanks! CT
  10. Alexandria, How did you install the plug in initially? Did you happen to use the "Setup" installer? If you did, try uninstalling and reinstalling. If not, please use the "Setup" file to install the plug in and its proper dependencies. If you have any questions, please let me know. Kind Regards, Jordan
  11. Hi Brain, Thank you for your feedback. I have sent all the information to our Products team to review. Thank you.
  12. Hi Brian, "Modified Date" is a date property. The plug-in will convert any timestamp to a date value when passing it to Address Book. If you need to look for records based on a specific time of the date, then you will do some parsing in FileMaker after the records have been pulled in from Address Book. Thank you.
  13. Hi adgilcan, Can you post some screenshots on where you have placed the Acrobat plug-in? Sincerely, Carson
  14. Hi soundsessential, You would need to add CheckPayment as a related record and then set the BankAccountRef. Let me know if this resolves the issue or not. Thank you. PCQO_RqAddRelatedRecord("CheckPayment"); PCQO_RqAddFieldWithValue("BankAccountRef::value"; $value); PCQO_RqCloseRelatedRecord; Sincerely, Carson
  15. Hi soundsessential, I would set the "IncludeLinkedTxns" to true in the BillQuery request. Then I would loop through all the LinkedTxn in the response and look for any records with a TxnType of "BillPaymentCheck" or "BillPaymentCreditCard". Please give it a try. Thank you. Sincerely, Carson
