  1. I am able (using FM7 Developer) to save as PDF on my Mac, but on my PC using the same program, the pdf option is not available in the print menu. I'm wondering if it may have something to do with not having Adobe Acrobat on the PC (on the Mac I have a Preview program that probably does it). Can anyone clarify this issue? Thanks for the assistance.
  2. In case my related problem gives you a clue, I am able (using FM7 Developer) to save as PDF on my Mac, but on my PC using the same program, the pdf option is not available in the print menu. I'm wondering if it may have something to do with not having Adobe Acrobat on the PC (on the Mac I have a Preview program that probably does it). Can anyone clarify this issue? Thanks for the assistance.
  3. Thank you for your help. I'm glad it wasn't out of ignorance that I've been customizing people's upgrades to include their value lists.
  4. Is it possible in an upgrade script to import a user's customized value lists into the upgraded datafile? I appreciate whatever advice anyone can give me, thank you.
  5. Lee, you're right to wonder about my skill level. I am really quite a beginner at functions I've never found a need for, since I haven't read an entire FileMaker Manual since FM4 (when I was last trained); only learned FM7 on the fly. Thank you for your kind help, Elaine
  6. Tried the get (found count), but FM7 doesn't have that option. Is there a workaround? Again, thanx. EFJ
  7. As it happens, I'm using serial numbers in different tables to "mean" something in various other tables that perform different functions with the data records numbered in certain ranges. If the field were to be set to "1" it would be wrong. Thanks again for quick response.
  8. Thanks everyone for replies to my question. As it happened, I was creating the correct script step, but because I'd tried so many wrong things first, I didn't see that it worked right because of performing an inadequate test. Just knowing that the steps were right led me to see my problem. Now, my next question: How do I make this function discretionary, so that if there are no imported records the serial number is not reset? Thanks again.
  9. Here's what I'm attempting: In an upgrade script that imports the user's data from a previous version, I can't figure out how to change the next serial number in the Define menu to the serial number of the last record imported plus 1, so that the next new record the user makes has the right number. Can anyone give me some ideas? Thanks a million.
  10. A runtime solution must be created on the platform for which it is meant to operate. Thus, you must create a PC version on a PC; a Mac version on a Mac. If you don't have FileMaker loaded on two computers, you need a generous friend. Hope this helps.
