  1. Does anyone know if Instant Web Publishing IWP is any quicker in FileMaker Advanced 11 or Filemaker Server Advanced 11? I can't seem to find anything about changes to Instant Web Publishing anywhere except that charts are new.
  2. Although nobody had any help for me on the above topic, I was able to find a tool that allowed me accomplish everything I was trying to do. There is a tool called Map Force that is made by Altova that has a really nice GUI and generates XSLT ver 1 code that appears to be capable of doing just about any XML conversion you may want. I was able to do all of the data conversion descrubed above and there appeared to be lots of operators and/ro functions that I did not even try to use yet. The XSLT code it generated worked great with Filemaker and I did not have to go in and hand edit the code in any way. There was a bit of a learning curve but all in all it was fairly easy. I reccommend Altova MapForce to anyone who is trying to convert XML Data to Filemaker standard. There is even a fully functional 30 day free trial and I lwas able to accomplish everything I needed to without needing to purchase the software, I will probably buy it though as it is very very useful in certain ways.
  3. Hi: I have been able to figure out some XML importing in the past with data coming from a much simpler file. This XML file has me really confused since the data for this file is broken up into sections and sub sections. I am wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to build the proper XSL file to facilitate importing this XML file. The first section is file information and I need part of that information included on a column in each row. The second section is ownership information and again I need part of that information included in a column on each row. The last section is lot information which is further broken up into a sub section for each owner. In my database I have an owner information table and a lot information table. In the lot information table I have a row for each owner of a lot which contains the lot in date, in weight, in dollars and projected out date as well as the owner name, and owner percent owned. I also need to take the data from the owner section and dump it into my owner contact table. I don't know if this can be done in one step or if I need to build a 2nd XSL file for parsing the owner contact information and run 2 seperate imports on this file. For now I have only been focusing on the lot import part. Once it is done I can start working on this 2nd piece. I have attached a sample XML export file. I have also attached my XSL file I have been messing with that I know is totally wrong but it is at least a start. Again any help would be greatly appreciated. Sample_Data_XML_and_XSL.zip
  4. Does anyone know if Instant Web Publishing has been upgraded or enhanced in FileMaker 10?
  5. Does anyone know if instant web publishing on filemaker 9 or filemaker advanced server 9 has any added functionality for printing reports or for displaying preview mode?
  6. Allong with adding your own back button to the layout, you could also open the IWP session in a new popup window with a small Java script and turn off all the explorer toolbars effectively removing the back button supplied by the brouser and forcing your user to use the back button you supply. The only negative here is that many people have popups blocked.
  7. Is there a way to insert HTML into the web page generated by IWP? I am trying to solve a printing problem and being able to insert some HTML would greatly help me.
  8. I had something similar to this and I ended up using a transparent gif as my button. I just created a gif in Photoshop and made the whole thing transparent. Place this transparent gif on top of your image in IWP and you should be able to click on it but not see it.
  9. This XML Data I'm importing is from a stock quote server. I want to keep my database current with current stock pricing. I can use the Import Records to automate the importing of this data but I am wondering if there is any way to have this script run every 5 minutes or so? Is there some way to trigger this script on a schedule? I also have some tasks I would like to run over night that could also benefit from a script scheduler.
  10. That section of code helped me a lot Thanks
  11. I have built an xsl style sheet to import the following xml data. The import completes without any errors but I get zero records imported. I think the problem has to do with the fact that I am trying to extract multiple data points from 1 XML element . I may get multiple elements but I will still need to extract multiple data points from each element. This is my first time trying to understand XML and I think I am missing something simple. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. XML I'm trying to import ------------------------------ <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes" ?> ------------------------------ Here is the xls style sheet I have built to deal with the above import. ------------------------------ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> 0
