  1. Even when the field is indexed, the value list does not insert values on new records. Strange! I'm using the "All" option for indexing.
  2. Nope, I forgot it. It now works like a charm. Thanks for all your help. You're working pretty early in the morning aren't you? John
  3. It still doesn't work. Script debugger and DataViewer show that $sp is set correctly in the parent script, however it is blank in the child script so the correct step does not execute. In other words the parameter is not passed to the the other file.
  4. Te attached file shows the scripts I am using.Parent and child file scripts.docx
  5. I want to run a script in the other file, depending on the value of a parameter.
  6. How can I pass a script parameter to a scrip in another file. I want to be able to run a script in asecond file based on the script parameter used in a first file. Or, is there a better way to do this instead of using script parameters?
  7. I’m trying to enter values from a value list based on a calculation field. Specialists::ActiveSpecialists is an unstored text calculation field. The value list ActiveSpecialists reads values from this calculation field. On a new records layout the VL is attached to the Prescriptions::Specialist text field so I can select a name from a drop down list. However, on newly created records, when I select a name, it does not enter into the field. The field remains blank. The source table for the new record layout is Prescriptions. How can I get the VL to work? Update: The value list does not work on new records only. That is, when I create a new record and apply the VL the field remains blank. However, the VL works fine on previously created records.
  8. How can I print field boundaries? I want to print boundaries on some fields for emphasis.
  9. Why setup a default printer? It seems that every time you print within a script the default changes to the one in the print step.
  10. FileMaker 17: To update records in table2, I want to import only the new records in table1 into table2. What’s the correct option to use in the Import script step: Add new records, Update existing records or Update matching records?
  11. I'm looking for a field calculation that will break a number into groups of 4 digits, each group separated by a space. The number can have 5 or more digits (say up to 16). For example: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX
  12. Who wooda thunk! FM is not fully compatible with Windows Home 64 bit! I'll just have to live with it. It's hugh job to upgrade Window. All my program would have to be reloaded and most of my Windows and Program customizations would be lost. I've done this enough times to know not to do it unless absolutely necessary. Thanks for your help. Does FM have a patch?
  13. I like to see the page margins when working in layout mode. However, View page margins is always grayed out. This happens in all my FM 17 solutions, all layouts. How can I view page margins?
  14. I'm using a global script variable to display numbers on my layout. However, I would like it to display a zero when the result is zero. At the present time, it displays as a blank. Is there a way to do this?
