  1. Yes, Save a Copy as PDF. I would like to get the title in the filename.
  2. Can I adjust the Save Copy as PDF step to include the Title on the layout? For example, "Account List 2019". I frequently create lists for other years and would like to show the year in the pdf. Not just "Account list".
  3. I have a value list that displays a fixed set of years: 2018, 2019, 2020...2030. I use it for creating new records. I've already used the years 2018 and 2019 to create records. Is there a way to filter the list so it only displays the values after 2019? Or, is there another way to do what I'm trying to do?
  4. It makes not difference. However, I like your simpler approach. But I would sure like to know why the script doesn't work.
  5. I can't get find a range of dates with a script. The following script is supposed to find the last 12 records on the layout. The Perform Find results in the error that the provided find criteria is not correct. Even if I use Enter Find Mode and insert the variables, I get the same error. What gives? Layout [ “Log” ] Show All Records Sort Records [ Keep records in sorted order; Specified Sort Order: Log::Date; ascending ] [ Restore; No dialog ] Go to Record/Request/Page [ Last ] Set Variable [ $End; Value:Log::Date ] Set Variable [ $start; Value:$end-12 ] Perform Find [ Specified Find Requests: Find Records; Criteria: Log::Date: “$start...$end” ] [ Restore ] //Enter Find Mode [ ] //Set Field [ Log::Date; $start...$end ] //Perform Find
  6. The Import records script step lists the source fields as Source field 3, Source field 14, etc. How can I find out what the actual source fields are?
  7. Press ctrl+s on the keyboard.
  8. FM 17 Pro. How can I sort based on a value list? The sort dialog does not offer this option.
  9. How do you import records from a Runtime solution into the FMP 17 file that was used to create the Runtime solution? I've tried to import the Solution's exe file, but get the error "file cannot be translated using the selected file type".
  10. I want to be able to import data from an Excel worksheet into a FM runtime solution. How do I open a runtime solution to set it up? How do I use the binder key? The runtime has a script to import, but from from the desktop. But apparently I have to place the Excel file in the solution folder?.
  11. You're using a Mac. I'm using FM 17 for the PC. No Page Margins.
  12. Yes, but what a pain switching back and forth between layout and preview as you work. In previous FM versions you could see page margins in the layout mode, making it much easier to work with.
  13. My FM 17 Pro does not have a Page margin option in the View menu, in layout mode. How can I show the page margins in layout mode so I can see that everything fits on the page?
  14. When I insert a Word file into FM17 Pro, all I see is an icon of the file. How do I display the file?
  15. I have imported a large number of records but all the names of individuals are in all caps. I would like to create a calculation field that changes the names to lower case but with the first letter capitlaized. I don't think I would want to run a script to do this unless necessary.
