  1. Thank you very much, I guess I need to purchase filemaker advance. Your help is greatly appreciated. Doubledunk
  2. Hello community, I would first of all like to thank you for being of great help in my times of need. However, I must call upon your expertise once more. I would like to know if there is a way to force some sort of prompt when the user wants to close a window. I want to design it in such a way that when the user fills out the fields and tries to close the actual window it will prompt him that he needs to commit the changes first. In other words. Can I program a script action to the "x" in the top right of the window? Thank you much Doubledunk
  3. I will be upgrading the ram on the Xserve to 2GB to see if it improves performance. Thank you for all your help. Take care CC
  4. Ram on server=1 GB Number of files set to be hosted=50 Guests=250 (I am currently hosting 11 files with 10 clients tops) Server Cache=240mb Drive configuration=Mac OSX Extended Format NIC=Gigabit Bad Cables/switches=negative Workstations free space/cache = more than 1GB/240MB cache I discovered that if you open the databases using iwp it works great. However, if I try the client it is very slow. Any other ideas? Thanks Carlos C.
  5. Thank you for replying to my post. I will try to check these things. However, I am a bit confused as to what workstation cache you are talking about. Is there an option on filemaker client where you can increase the amount of cache? Thank you for your time and patience Carlos C.
  6. Hello community, I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I currently have filemaker server advanced on a Mac Xserve 10.4.11 and filemaker server advanced being 9.0v3. my clients are also 9.0v3. I have this file that has pictures embedded in it, it is composed of 7 layouts (3 layouts which use the same container field to store a 40 kb picture, and 4 other layouts that have 16 text fields in each of them) The pictures are embedded within the file, to make it a final size of 329.2 mb My question is, when I try to remotely open this file, it takes about 1 minute before it can actu
  7. I currently have FM server Advanced version 9, which is being hosted on an Xserve Server. The Xserve is bound to active directory and the FM server is set to accept external authentication. My issue is when I try external authentication using the filemaker client on a mac it works great. However, when I try using a filemaker pc client to authenticate into my databases it will always lock my account from Active Directory even if I put in the right authentication. Sometimes it only takes 1 try (regardless if it's successful or not) to lock my account from active directory. Can anyone help me out
  8. Thank you for your reply Lee. However, I am unable to access that page. It gives me an "unexpected error" message. Could you perhaps elaborate on the visibility method? perhaps a sample file? Thank you in advance Carlos C.
  9. Hello community, I was wondering if you could help me with the following scenario. Is it possible to enable or disable a field based on another field's input? For example let's say I had a field with a payment option of cash or credit card, and another field with a credit card number. If the payment option is cash then the credit card field would would not accept any data entry. However if payment option is credit card then the credit card number field would accept input. Is this possible in filemaker? Thank you for all your help. Carlos C.
  10. Thank you very much, that worked like a charm. Take care, Carlos C.
  11. Here is my question. Is there a way where filemaker can make fields editable on 1 layout but when you switch to another layout the fields are not editable? What am I trying to do is have a list view of my records where the fields are not editable, however when a user clicks on a certain record from the list it will switch to the "form" layout and in this layout the user can edit field content. Thank you in advance, Carlos C.
  12. Thank you David, that solution worked perfectly. Take care, Carlos C.
  13. Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to specify a find request to compare a field's content with a local variable. this is what my codes looks like. I have two fields in layout called whatever. the fields are called fname and lname. GotoLayout(Whatever) Set Variable($fname, VALUE: globalvariable_1) Set Variable($lname, VALUE: globalvariable_2) Enter Find Mode[] Perform Find[Restore] within the perform find I have specified the following find request. Action: Find Records field criteria Database::fname ==$fname Database::lname
  14. Thank you Michael, That sure sums it up for me. Now if I could just know what kind of algorithm the Perform Find[] command uses. I like to know if it will lag going through 300,000 records in performing a find. Thanks a bunch, Carlos C.
