  4. There are character limits if you use mailto. Probably running into Internet Explorer's.. http://www.boutell.com/newfaq/misc/urllength.html Can't use Send Mail script step?
  5. Make sure you have a: - "go to layout" (to a layout based on the table that has that field) - and a "perform find" on the records you want to run replace on (unless you’re doing all, in which case you want a "find all" script step) prior to your "replace field contents" script step..
  6. ? Your initial question was can FileMaker create Excel/Word. The answer is yes using the above described methods. This latest question is about dlls? It has been stated in two posts already that FileMaker is not a full fledged program environment (one by me and one by Wim). It also does not sell itself as one! Anything you an do in vbs you can do in FileMaker by outputing the vbs file then executing it (one button click). Am not an expert at vbs but if vbs can do all of the dll questions you have then the answer is yes, if not then the answer is no. You seem to be trying to pi
  7. Have given you 2 ways to integrate with excel/word.. There maybe some 3rd party plug-ins that can help as well. I have done lots of integrations with both excel/word and FileMaker in large enterprises. XML is easier with a FileMaker integration with Word/Excel from the standpoint that there is no programming involved (just copy/paste and fill in the blanks). Also think xml is also the future of application integration which is why Microsoft is going that route with the latest versions of their apps. Obviously you've worked extensively with other apps and have a bias for those. I agr
  8. you can write the visual basic to a field, then export it to a .vbs file then execute it all within FileMaker. I actualy think xml is less cumbersome then writing vba but guess it depends on what your used to..
  9. You can have FileMaker create files in word/excel's xml format (if using word/excel 2003 or later). This would give you full control over how it will look. This can be done setting s text field in FileMaker then exporting the field to a file. Easiest to first create however you want the file to look like in word/excel, then save it as xml, then open with notepad(or other text editor) and paste into FileMaker text field. Next step would be to have scripts/calculations set that text field prior to exporting. Ben Goldstein www.swconsulting.com www.cardsfm.com
  10. Use the "Send Mail" script step rather then open url. Open url is useful for many other things.. Ben - www.cardsfm.com

  12. Assume PHP is faster since FileMaker has written an api for it but has anyone run any acutal tests? Also does it hit the 50 connection limit when a lot of people hit it or does IIS pool the connections or does it even matter since it connects then immediatly disconnects after the page is finished loading..
  13. Do you have FileMaker Server Advanced? You can use SQL Server Integration Services to schedule a transfer of data from FileMaker Server Advanced ODBC to a SQL table each night..
