  1. This works for me. http://www.briandunning.com/cf/1085 Although if you want to map multiple addresses you will have to use the API. Cheers
  2. That did the trick. Thanks Comment
  3. Hello World, I am using a web viewer to display/preview some text from a data field before printing and I've run into an interesting situation and could use some guidance. I have created some fields to process raw data and create some HTML/CSS for a webviewer which works great. The only thing is the text formatting does not follow through to the web viewer as it does not generate any HTML formatting tags. I was wondering if there is anyway to check the existing formatting on individual words (ie if Bold, italics, underline, etc)? This way I could run a CF or calculation to sub in HTML tags where needed. Thanks In Advance, Chris
  4. Awesome! Thanks Genx. Works like a charm. Thanks for the link too that should prove to be rather useful as I learn. Much appreciated, Chris
  5. Hi, I've just started learning PHP and just finished running through the Filemaker PHP API turorial. I'm trying to apply what I just learned to a custom website and I'm having some troubles connecting to my Filemaker Database. What I am trying to do is to get all records on a specific table to be displayed and I get the following error, "fatal error: call to a member function getField() on a non-object - on line 63" and I'm not sure where I went wrong. I'm sure its something simple as I am quite new to PHP. My php code is as follows: <?php $findcommand =$fm->newFinallCommand('Recipes'); $result = $findCommand->execute(); if (FileMaker::isError($result)) { echo "<p>Error: " . $result->getMessage() . "</p>; exit; } $record = $records[0] $recpipe = $record-getField('Recipe_Name'); ?> Thanks In advance for the help, Chris
  6. Hi All, I have a bit of a tricky situation on my hands and I need some advice. The problem is kind of tricky (at least it seems to be to me) so I'll give you an example of what I am trying to do. I have a list of 20 recipients and 3 document types for each recipient that needs to be printed but the 3 documents have different print properties ie I need 2 copies of one document (1 for signature to be returned and another for the recipients records) and single copies of the remaining 2 documents. In order to allow the change to the print settings I am allowing the user to set the print settings per document type. Once the user hits print and the script kicks in it first asks the user for the # of copies desired for that document type in a custom dialog box which gets set to a variable (so I can loop through the print dialog for x copies with out having to ask for each record)and repeat for each document type. This way I get 20 copies of document A then 20 of B and 20 of C in there own nice neat little piles. This works great except for the fact that anytime the printer gets changed the change is ignored and the default printer is ignored. Is there anyway I can force FM to accept the change the user has made to the printer settings or am I just going to have to live with it until FM decides to fix it next century? Thanks In Advance For The Advice, Chris
  7. Would the virtual list technique be applicable to this situation? http://fmforums.com/forum/files/file/5-multipage-letter/ As for the word export I've done this before with merge fields(VBscript on the windows side and or Applescript on the mac side) but its a little messy and formatting doesn't always work. There was a post for a year or two ago that explains a couple different techniques for doing this but I can't find it (using ODBC as the data source for word). Hope this helps

    Text Ruler

    Hi all, I'm looking for a solution to a text formating issue. The project I'm working on requires a section where users can build and manager legal templates. Part of this section requires the ability to add pre-set legal clauses to the templates. What I would like to be able to do is have a List of available clauses (portal) beside the document and the user would click the required clause and have it inserted into the active document with preset formating. like this The project I'm working on requires a section where they can manage and build legal templates and part of this involves adding in pre-set legal clauses to the documents.

I know this is possible using the text ruler after everything has been inserted but I would it if the text inserted came pre-formated so there would be 1 less thing for the users to remember to do. Any advice is more than appreciated even if its letting me know this is not possible. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi, Apologies if I've posted this in the wrong section, this seemed the appropriate place. I'm having some problems or at least I can't think of a proper solution to my dilemma. In my solution one of the primary purposes is to allow the user to enter in the necessary data and have it print in a preset template (of their selection). I have most of the templates set up and working just great thanks to the Virtual List Technique. The issue I am coming across is for some of these templates a numbered or bulleted list which requires some user interaction is needed. Unless I've missed something doing this in an edit box is a rather big headache for the user, unless there is a plug in that adds the functionality. I've also considered adding an additional table to hold the values of the list (related to the Template ID) and using merge fields on the print layout to get the desired affect. I would rather have something do this in an edit box (much like the list we have access to in gmail or on the forums text box) as it allows for greater flexibility for the user and less headaches for me. Thank in advance, Chris
