  1. Hi William, It has been interesting to read about Creating Demo Software. However, the links you have provided namely SoftwareKey and Install Creator only run on Windows, know anything similar for Mac? Cheers
  2. Thanks a lot guys. So, can you please point me to where I can read about these rules? Thanks
  3. Thanks Vaughan, I set up Tab, Return and Enter as keys to go to next object. By right, after I have entered the data in a field, and upon pressing any of the keys (Tab, Return or Enter) above to go to the next field, it would have performed the validation for the field last entered, right? But in my case, this is not happening, the tab key or return/enter key will actually lead me to all subsequent fields without prompting validation message when wrong data was deliberately entered. However, if I move the mouse and click anywhere on the screen, the validation message will appear, even before entering the subsequent field. Am I missing something? Thanks
  4. Hi all, I have set up a field to validate its content through validation by calculation. The validation condition works except not quite the way I wanted it. What I want is upon completion of entry in this field and when tab or return/enter is pressed, the data would have already been validated. As it is now, it only validates after all the data are entered, or click on anywhere (even after the field to be validated has been entered) on the layout other than any field. I hope I am making myself clear. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi Michael, You are right. I am complicating myself for something relatively simple. But I also guess that because I am relatively new to FileMaker, and a little worried about exploring the many options to accomplish a task. Anyway, thanks for your help, really appreciate it. Thanks
  6. Thanks Michael for your reply. I have been exploring Import, but I don't seem to be able to import from Course to History. Course and History are basically identical tables. Anyway, I have scripted as follows: 1. Go to Layout ["Course" (Course)] 2. Perform [] 3. Sort Records [No dialog] 4. Show All Records 5. Go to Record/Request/Page [First] 6. Loop 7. Perform Script ["Copyfields"] 8. Go to Layout ["Course" (Course)] 9. Go to Record/Request/Page [Next; Exit after last] 10. End Loop The Script "Copyfields" is as follows: a. Go to Layout ["History" (History)] b. New Record Request c. a series of Set Fields The above loop is done properly, however, all the records in History have exactly the same data as the first found record in Course. Where have I done wrong? Appreciate your feedback.
  7. Hi all, I am very new to FileMaker, therefore, I would appreciate any help. This question may have been asked before, as I couldn't find similar solution, I thought perhaps I should raise the question instead of spending hours browsing the forum. Anyway, my problem is as follow: I have defined a table with records of students who have enrolled for one particular training course - called "Course". At the end of the enrollment period, these records will be archived, which I have created a table called "history" to capture all the records. However, I don't know what is the easiest way to archive the "Course" records to "History". Basically, the fields in "Course" and "History" are the same. Any suggestions or help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advanced.
