  1. I'm wondering how I should handle tallying a $ amount. I have record for each month out of the year and it's broken down by office. In this record I have 2 fields that add to $ amount and 2 fields that subtract from $ amount. After the adding and subtracting, I need the final $ amount to carry over to the next record based on month and year. Should I break those add and subtract fields into their own records or should I try and figure out a calculation that will pull the amount from one record to the next? Any thoughts? Thanks
  2. I'm looking for a solution that will allow a user to email a record from IWP. It would be sent from their own email server. Any ideas? Anther email questions... does filemaker 11 support Outlook for Mac? I appreciate any input. Thanks.
  3. I'm running Windows Server 2003 Ver 5.2 SP2 Filemaker server 9 I would like to upgrade to server 2011, but currently I can not get into the console to verify setting before uninstalling. Is there a way for me to upgrade and bring all the current setting with the upgrade? If not please provide some trouble shooting setps to get the admin console to work. Thanks much!
  4. I will keep that in mind. I think I'm going to start by installing FM Client on the server and then maybe using automater and applescript to accomplish what i need. Thanks
  5. Does anyone have any ideas of how to work around the limitations of not being able to use the save record as a PDF on the filemaker server 9 advanced?
  6. Can anyone point me in the direction of how I can get filemaker to create a new record from an email. Currently in FM 10 you can send record info from your smtp server... is there a way to receive info from an smtp server and create a record from that email? Thanks!
  7. Sounds good. If you want some good reading, do a search for "White Paper For FM Novice" It's courtesy of Foundation Database Systems. I don't believe in EVERYTHING that they cover, but it does have alot of good points. Take Care, Lisa
  8. Ok, I have it working on port 80... thank you. Now I want to turn the security setting on as described above. How should Apache be configured to secure web publishing... https 443??
  9. I'm sorry to hear about your idea, but I'm glad your safe ;-) If you want me to take a look at your database I would be more then happy. It sounds like you have some good ideas and are somewhat on the right track but relationships can get a little confusing. There are many different ways to manage them, and you want to make sure you have some type of method in place before tackling a large project. I'd hate to see you give up. Let me know if I can help.
  10. A URL redirect. Seeing port 80 is being used. The security setting I'm talking about is on FMS 9 Advanced under the Security Tab... Secure Connections there is a check box. Once this check box gets selected and I go to it does not work. I can access it within my office/network but not outside of my network.. Thank you very much for your help!
  11. Well, I'm not a 100% sure how you are creating the relationships but if it's working... then great. If you run into any issues with the vendor let me know. Otherwise, as far as the global field you still want to set them at start up as common practice.... kind of like a safety net.
  12. Don't give up. You should be able to do this with one file. First thing first. Make sure your global fields are set in your start up menu. So in your project table you will want two global fields, global_vendor and global_client. Then create a script that set's these fields as "vendor" and "Client" at start up. From there you should create your relationships based on these fields. Now a question I have for you is what do you mean by "popup" Do you have a field setup up with a pop up list? and if so have you created a list that pulls fields from the relationships you have created?
  13. When installing FMS 9 Advanced I had to put a redirect for IWP to work. Now when I check the box for the security setting it breaks. What do I need to do? Do you think this is because of the redirect? Thank you.
  14. Help.... I have the plug-in in my external functions but how do I make it send an email??? This is the first time I've used a plugin. Here is the plugin SendEmailWithAuthentication( from ; to ; subject ; htmlBody ; attachmentPath ; smtpHost ; username ; password ) I have to enter it as a field, so how does it or can it send an email?? Thanks! :
