  1. Feel free to check out my OPEN SOURCE version of Appointment 1.0v9. FULLY UNLOCKED and CUSTOMIZABLE Resource Calendar module. http://appointment10.com Good Luck!
  2. Hello Group, I have been working FileMaker for 22 years and building custom web systems for the last 8 years in PHP/mySQL. Recently, my company has hit a dry slump (a few larger projects have pause development and the projects in the pipe are delaying) and I am current putting out a few feelers letting people know I am available for sub-contracting or a sharp shooter to get you over the hump. Please contact me PRIVATELY, if you are interested in my services. Thanks!
  3. Looks like COMMENT added a simple LOOKUP scheme. This replaces the entire field. If that is what you need, then go with that. If not, please specify what needs to change. Thanks!
  4. Here is a quick little demo on how to INSERT TEXT into an existing text field based of the last Position of your cursor in the text field. A few key points: 1) There are some script triggers that reset and set CURSOR POSITION. a) OnRecordLoad - I set start and end to NULL (Warning - you must click into the TEXT field first) b) OnObjectExit - I set start and end of last cursor position. This includes if you selected a string in the text field. 2) Relationship to Terms to allow the selection of a term and set it in the INSERT POINT. Selectable from a global text field
  5. Sorry Lola - Did you figure this out? I don't check the site much these days and I did not get an email echoed that you replied. So did you just want to total each column? I added that. Hopefully this helps. If not please let me know! HoursRev2.fmp12
  6. Hello Lola, I added a new table that stores your ProjectCodes. Then a few calculated fields to streamline the report you are trying to generate. Check out the last LAYOUT I created. As far as Isolating Users, simply populate the gUser field accordingly 😉 Good Luck!!! Hours.fmp12
  7. Maybe from a financial/labor standpoint, it might be better to use something that already exist. I just "Googled" searched, found this product, did a rough browse of site. Looks feature packed and web-based. http://www.bandhelper.com Good luck!
  8. Thanks COMMENT! With a little fudging I got it working with your suggestion. Happy New Year!!!
  9. Hi Gang, I am reaching out to see if anyone can assist (or maybe point me in the right direction) with some ExecuteSQL() issues I am having in my my next version of my product. I want to execute a query like the following: SELECT code FROM Appts WHERE appt_id IN (’14’,’10’,’8’,’9') ORDER BY FIELD(appt_id, ‘9', ‘10', ‘8', ‘14’) I have tried several times for this to return a working result with NO LUCK. Do you know if FMP allows this sort of query or does it fall short. Appreciate any help. Thanks!
  10. Hey gang, FileMaker has a deal going for a limited time . - buy one get one: https://store.filemaker.com/individuals I am not doing too much FileMaker these days (more cloud PHP stuff), but I would like to have a copy of this just in case my old clients need me to work on their systems. Anyone interest in going 50/50 on this deal. I'd be willing to pay my part via PayPal. Contact me PRIVATELY if you are interest. Thanks!
  11. Let ( [ $a = 1920 ; $b = 1080 ; $GCD = "Case(Mod($a;$b)=0;$b;Let([$c=$a;$a=$b;$b=Mod($c;$a)];Evaluate($GCD)))" ] ; Evaluate ( $GCD ) )
  12. Another approach is to script the process to APPEND or ADD an new. The key to retaining the position in the content field, is to not COMMIT the record by clicking out of the TEXT box. In this attached sample, you can high light any text or place your cursor somewhere in the field, and still add notes. Check it out. Did not test via WebDirect, but I used script steps compatible with WD by using the FILTER script steps. dwdc_addnote.fmp12
  13. Hi Siroos, The Timestamp List is not records but a text list in a calculated field, so unless I am missing something, your suggesting won't cover my needs. I was able to to script the LOGIC I need, nut cannot migrate it to a CF successfully: Set Variable [ $source ; Value: " 1/6/2018 9:00 AM¶ 1/6/2018 9:10 AM¶ 1/6/2018 9:40 AM¶ 1/6/2018 9:50 AM¶ 1/6/2018 10:40 AM¶ 1/6/2018 10:50 AM¶ 1/6/2018 11:00 AM¶ 1/6/2018 11:40 AM¶ 1/6/2018 11:50 AM¶ 1/6/2018 12:00 PM¶ 1/6/2018 12:10 PM¶ 1/6/2018 12:20 PM¶ 1/6/2018 12:30 PM¶ 1/6/2018 …" ] Set Variable [ $unit ; Value: 10 ] Set Variable [
  14. I have a CF that builds a list of TimeStamp intervals: 1/6/2018 9:00 AM 1/6/2018 9:10 AM 1/6/2018 9:40 AM 1/6/2018 9:50 AM 1/6/2018 10:40 AM 1/6/2018 10:50 AM 1/6/2018 11:00 AM 1/6/2018 11:40 AM 1/6/2018 11:50 AM 1/6/2018 12:00 PM 1/6/2018 12:10 PM 1/6/2018 12:20 PM 1/6/2018 12:30 PM 1/6/2018 12:40 PM 1/6/2018 12:50 PM I want to analyze this list and generate an index sequence (resetting the index back to 1 if there is a break in sequence) 1/6/2018 9:00 AM = 1 1/6/2018 9:10 AM = 2 1/6/2018 9:40 AM = 1 1/6/2018 9:50 AM = 2 1/6/2018 10:40 AM = 1 1/6
