OS Version

  1. I just upgraded my Mac OS to Mojave (10.14.4). I am running FMP Advanced 11.0v4, and my databases are in FP7 format (due to a legacy system at work.) I now have a repeatable "glitch" where if I perform a find in a database and there are no records that come up as results (i.e., no records match the find), regardless which choice I make next (Cancel or Modify Find), the app quits and I keep getting the window to send the issue to Apple. I can immediately re-open the database, though usually the last 2-3 changes I made weren't saved. Other than the obvious option of upgrading the app, does an
  2. Hello I find in an old drives some fmp5 files. To open them in FMP18 I need to convert them first to FMP7. I have an old version of FMP7 however each time I install it the app crashes telling me the installer was modified with another version and crashes. I tried to download from the Filemaker site the trial version but I can't find it ... any help? Thanks
  3. Basic Question: I am attempting to import 60 records from a CSV file. There are 4 fields per record: First Name, Last Name, Email and Source. When I choose Import Records... > File... from the File menu, everything looks good, 4 data points point to the correct field names: arrow icon "Import this field" but the rest are the double dots icon, "Don't import this field," and when I click on the Import button only the first record is imported. I don't use Filemaker frequently enough to remember everything but when I need it, I really need it. I do not remember having to go thru
  4. Filemaker Pro 11 is running on two Windows 10 computers connected as Host and Client over a network. The script to import data from an Excel .csv file utilizes the following script step options: 1. Un-Checked - Specify data source - File 2. Check - Specify import order, Import Action a. Select - Update existing records in found set b. Check - Don't import first record (contains field names) 3. Check - Perform without dialog When the Import script is run from the Host computer, and the desired .csv file is manually selected, the Excel first row fi
  5. After my Windows 10 based Filemaker Pro 11 MarinaPro Solution is launched (Path = C:/MarinaPro/Marina.fp7), I need to create a variable ($$source = filewin:/C:/MarinaPro/ResScheduler/) to a revised default "Open File" path. Because I need to select from several reservation request attachment Excel .csv files, placed in the ResScheduler directory by an Outlook 2010 Macro, my "Import Records" script is set with an "unspecified" data source. When my script is activated with Error Capture "Off", I get the obligatory Filemaker Pro Error message, "The file <unknown> could not be found...
  6. I've updated my computer from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. My FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 does not launch. I get the message "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect." What's the solution for this issue? Update: I clicked on an fp7 file, and then Windows asked me to insert the FileMaker CD, which I did. Some files were quickly copied over, and everything works fine now!
  7. I have several customers that utilize our MarinaPro Marina Dockage Management solution. All are running Windows 10 Pro 64Bit and Filemaker Pro 11.0v2. All the MarinaPro solutions are functioning well with exception to the one marina that is using an HP LaserJet Professional M1217nfw MFP printer. The printer has been named "HP LaserJet". The problem is that scripted reports will not print after an updated/revised solution is installed on the computer. However, a test page can be printed from the Windows default printer. Print scripts are utilized by more than one report and th
  8. In Filemaker Pro Advanced 11 ( and 14 ), is it possible to launch the Windows 10 Mail program (WinMail.exe.mui) using the Filemaker "Send event" or some other approach?
  9. I assist with a FMP 11 database that manages projects and related data, about 10,000 projects currently. I setup a new tool that tracks a ADL requirement with a simple YES/NO drop down value list. Users choose if the project requires ADL tracking by selecting YES/NO, and we have a layout that lists all 10,000 projects with the ADL requirement that shows YES, NO or empty value. This layout also shows lots of other project records that are searchable without error. I am trying to perform a Find on this layout to display all values with YES selected, or NO selected. The appropriate rela
  10. Is there a way in AppleScript to trap if the connection is lost and have an AppleScript act on this? At the risk of asking and answering myself( AppleScript below ) repeat tell application "FileMaker Pro" try database "db" on error do shell script "sudo shutdown -r now" with administrator privileges end try end tell delay 59 -- 59 secs end repeat
  11. I'm a botanist, and the tables I am working with are for tracking botanical garden collections. The data represents plants in the garden, and the plants are tagged and show up in the database. The tables I am working with were created in FMP 7, and I'd like to open them up in FMP 11 (or later.) The system hasn't been used in years, but still has valuable information. One of the tables is giving me problems using the FMP convert and recover commands. These tables are all inter-related. The main table is the Accessions table, which contains records for all of one kind of plant, from
  12. I am working in a biology lab and have developed several basic databases using filemaker 11 to help the lab organise their stocks of chemicals and so on. We have a fairly onerous excel sheet that we have to fill out for registering certain new reagents we make with the regulatory authorities and as these are a pain to use, they are not filled out regularly enough. I would like to simplify this for everyone by making a filemaker form/database that will automatically fill out as much detail as possible. The data in question is that when we clone a piece of DNA we need to insert
  13. Hi, A client of mine has an Windows 2008 Server which runs an SQL Server. Because he doesn't have another machine and (Due To some reason, my client do not wish to mess with current SQL database structure), so I will like to ins tall FM 11 runtime onto the same machine, The runtime solution is to schedule login to SQL server to perform importing / filtering and exporting data report. My question is :... Has someone ever done this and can it be done? Possible for FM to login onto same machine to access SQL DB ? Thanks
  14. I and most of my clients are still on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2003. I have several FileMaker executable files (solutions) developed using FileMaker 11 Advanced. Will these run on Windows 10? Will the Windows 10 compatibility mode (i.e., Windows 7) run these files? I don't have a Windows 10 machine to test.
  15. I'm getting the attached error messages when trying to modify records in a file. It's appears as though there is some protection in place, privilege sets etc, but there isn't and never has been. I've tried recovering the file to no avail, is there anything else I can try? I haven't accessed this file in approx. 6 months, but have never had issues before and I'm the only user of the file.
  16. I have a MacMini running macOS Sierra with FM11PA that works; however this FM11PA was installed when there was MacOS X 10.10 on the MacMini. Attempting to install FM11PA on my MB15R fails, well the installer appears to work fine( as pr attached image, ) but launching the app( as pr attached image ) tells me somebody has been fiddling with the installation and that I have to reinstall the application.
  17. Hi, I have FileMaker 11 and I created a interface to pull data from my website's sql. I am able to change the name of a product, but I cannot change the price of the mysql table through the FM 11 interface. Is there something I miss doing? I am using odbc to connect. Thanks.
  18. I am modifying the Invoice sample that comes with FM to provide some basic Inventory management functions. Works pretty well. However...I really need to be able to order a product in 2 ways : (1) (Kit - ISBN) and have that deplete and ship all of the parts that make the kit. (2) as individual pieces) For example: Kit 1234 (includes) 3 of part 2234 5 of part 9987 1 of part 097 Someone might order Kit 1234 PLUS an extra 9987. Make sense? No clue on how to connect them. Thanks in advance File Maker Jedis.
  19. Hi, I have a Filemaker Pro 11.04 database running and it's great. However I wanted to make a simple amendment which is proving very frustrating to do. I have a customer contacts layout that I can click on a button to create invoices. All the relevant contact data is ported and I get taken to a new layout (Invoice Data) where I input the relevant information for invoices (the items, quantities etc). When I'm ready to print I click another button on this layout and it takes me to another invoice layout (Invoice Print) that condenses the information input into the data layout into a more printer
  20. Hi all, I've got a problem I've been struggling with for a few days now and I'm hoping someone here can help. Apologies if this is actually quite simple. I'm not a complete beginner with FM, but far from advanced. Anyway, here's the problem: I have a parent table called Collections, and a child called Items. 1 Collection can have many Items. I also have a table called Requests. This table should allow a user to request a selection of items from a particular collection, so that these items can be physically delivered from storage to our premises. Each Request should be unique and retained as
  21. I create a sales ticket in FMP11 and then print the sales ticket out for my customer. I have a layout for the sales ticket. I'd like to be able to give my customer the option for me to email this sales ticket to their email address. I already have a field for their addredss in my layout. How can I email a one page form? I use Windows Live Mail 2011 on a PC.
  22. Hi All, What I want is to create a pdf which has 2 or more layouts in FM i.e. multiple pages and then attach the pdf after creation to an email in Ipad. I have tried to append the second layout pdf to the 1st but in Ipad we cannot append pdf so this solution does not work. So please if anyone can suggest me any solution many thanls. Thank you in advance.
  23. Hi All, I am using IIS 7 ,Filemaker 11 and PHP 5.2.17. I have installed IIS and Filemaker 11 server correctly and also for the default site added in the handler mapping section the correct path for the FM webpublishing PHP which is C:\Program Files (x86)\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\php\php5isapi.dll. But when I run the php code then I get an error as : PHP Notice: Only variable references should be returned by reference in C:\Program Files (x86)\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\php\FileMaker\Command.php on line 126. Can any1 ple
  24. I'm using FMP11 v2 on a Windows 7 x64 laptop. When I print, I get a "Not responding" message and FMP stops working. I must turn FMP off using Task Master. I tried upgrading to v3 or v4 but I can't get the update to work. I've reloaded my printer driver. I'm stumped... any ideas?
  25. I cannot get FMP Advanced 11.0.4 to run under Yosemite. Anyone else seeing this? I get the Java 6 Runtime message as described here: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14038 ... but it is not plugin related (as I have deleted all 360 Works and other plugins in an attempt to get running). Is there a risk to other systems if I install the legacy Java SE6 listed here? http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 Bit of a blocking problem for me on my main work machine (have a backup Mavericks machine still). Thanks for any advice.
