  1. Hey James, check your IE version - WD only supports IE 9 and 10. Is it a supported browser? FileMaker WebDirect is accessible from a web browser. Supported web browsers include: Safari 6.x and Safari 7.x Internet Explorer 9.x or 10.x Chrome 21.x http://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-server/server-13-specifications.html
  2. Script steps that invoke the server like “Perform Script on Server”, will likely require a server version that understands the command. There are probably others but that one comes to mind just now.
  3. My understanding is, like so many other things in life (good and bad), “the first one is free”. IOW, you keep that, and purchasing a 5 pack brings you to 6 concurrent connections. Note that the connections are what’s important, not “who” the connectors are. You’re not licensing Sandy and George, and anybody can be one of those concurrent connections.

  5. The FileMaker Training Series, now in its fourth edition, has been launched today and is available for purchase at filemaker.com.

  6. About the Philadelphia FileMaker User Group The Philadelphia FileMaker User Group was founded in 2004 as an initiative by FileMaker Business Alliance Platinum member IT Solutions Consulting. The group’s goal is to provide an open forum for FileMaker developers and those interested in FileMaker to meet, brainstorm and network. We hold meetings the 4th Tuesday of every month at 6PM, in the office of IT Solutions Consulting, Inc., at 414 Commerce Drive, Suite 150, Fort Washington PA. Meetings are open to all, regardless of background and there’s no charge to attend. Please su

  8. Switch to Mailchimp. Doug from HomeBase Software has a nice little tutorial on integrating with FileMaker, starting here: http://homebasesoftware.wordpress.com/2010/07/10/mailchimp-integration-with-filemaker-pro/ Besides which, MailChimp’s just awesome. And free for lists under 1000 subscribers.
  9. This is eerily like those dreams I was having the night before my 11 certification exam.
  10. Ow. And this is helpful to my brain at 5 o’clock on a Friday...how? ;-) And now I have Abacab in my head, and will have to purge it.
  11. Interesting. Yeah, that works if you use a Let statement in a Set Field script step. Note that trying to Set Variable "$test $test” to some value in a script step doesn’t work, because it reads the second $ as an illegal character. This is a bit inconsistent, obviously. Why should the behavior be illegal in one circumstance, and generate NO error in another (and, moreover, WORK)? Moreover, I find it a bit odd that the calc engine interprets return characters as part of the variable name as well. I have a feeling something would break somewhere if you were to choose to d
  12. Okay, Robin, one of my colleagues, pointed this one out to me. I’ve never run across it before, because…because I’m perfect, and never mistype in the calc engine! Yeah…yeah, that’s it. Anyway, to reproduce: 1.open up the calc engine (Data Viewer will do) 2. Add an expression to the Watch pane, and copy/paste this into the calc dialog: $test $test $test $test $test $test $test 3. Click on Monitor 4. Scratch your head in befuddlement. You’d think FM would bark once you try to commit this expression, since there aren’t any operators…but no. I’ve
  13. You might want to engage either of the above - or 360works.com - to custom develop a plugin. 360works does extensive custom plugin work that’s highly regarded (and from what I’ve heard reasonably priced). I can’t speak directly to Productive Computing or 24U in terms of custom work but they’ve both been in the plugin business for a very long time, are mature companies, and their standard plugin products are rock solid.
  14. Ditto. Also, what does your available disk space on C: look like? Since it’s randomly happening to different files including fresh ones, I’d want to check to see if there’s enough room for FMS to write cache files. EDIT: my comment actually assumes FMS.
