  4. I wonder if this is a bug or some new limitation in fm8 or maybe its just me. I have a script that deletes the "current login/password account user" and creates a new one. It used to work fine with 7 but now i receive a error when the account is created, not enough privileges. Even the custom privledg set i created in my solution allows all. The option"[Full access]" is ghosted in the "Add Account Option" Any ideas whats going on? I think the new account created has the custom privilege and wont allow to create a new account but "[Full access]" is not working, what to do? Here the script: Login: Admin or 1 Pass: no pass or 2 Untitled.fp7.zip
  5. I have a solution that I created in my Windows platform. If I create a runtime version can it be run on a Macintosh? If not, can a macintosh run my files?
  6. I'm in search of a complete list of features (script steps, functions, etc.) added since version 7. Is there such a thing? Bonus if it shows in what version it was introduced. Two separate lists for 8 and 8.5 would be fine too.
  7. Hi, I'm finally going to version 8.5. I bought advanced this time ( I did not have developer in the past). While reading about conversions, on the filemaker site it is written that "files should be recovered and then compressed before conversion to version 7 and higher". That is big news to me as I was always told that recovers are to be avoided but in dire circonstances. My question is the following: should I then recover and compress with my 8.5 advanced in the old format ( i.e. .fp5 format) and then convert so as to have the advantage of having the developer report of the old version handy? Thanks and Merry Christmas to all! -) Luc ps as I am filling up the fields to submit this post, the platform for FM Server does not show linux which is my platform...could that be added to the choices by the webmaster(obviously this is not related to my question)?
  8. Where on my hard drive would I find the filemaker help files? Mac 10.4 Thanks
  9. Hey all, Well, after months of periodic saturdays spent combing my scripts, fields, layouts, buttons, etc etc etc in a converted FMP5 to 8 set of 24 interrelated files, today was the day for the final reconversion of our most current FMP5 files, and final data import into our (hopefully!) fully functional and fixed FMP8 solution! Good bye classic mode, finally. Man, it flies too! Working with FMP Server 8, 4 clients, I maxed out the server RAM and boosted everyone's caches up to 64 megs and we are SMOKING.. love it so far, and my initial final test is turning up only a couple of new "close window" script steps I forgot to add to prevent unnecessary screen clutter. I have noticed some bugs though, such as printing multiple scripts at a time doesn't work (only prints the last one) or printing multiple page scripts only prints the last page. So I'm considering the 8.03 update, but I've seen some issues around here on it. So the $64k question is.. should I go ahead and patch all 4 clients and the server? Or should I sit tight on 8.02 until the next update? What say you? Thanks in advance! I'm off to keep humming speedily through my newly zippy databases :yay:
  10. Hello group. As the title indicates, I am a complete newbie to Filemaker Pro. My boss at work purchaed it as a "gift" for me, but now I am expected to learn it and implement it. My question is not so much how to do something, but more of "can Filemaker Pro do this?". We have 4 inventories total. 3 are at different locations. Every week each location submits an Excel spreadsheet with their current on hand count. Is it possible in Filemaker to create a solution that will allow me to import the inventory from the 3 different locations (Excel spreadsheets), compare them to the main inventory at the fourth location, generate a printable report of what needs to be shipped to each location based on the current quantity each location has and then finally look at the main inventory and suggest items to order based on the onhand count after the numbers have been carried over to the 3 other locations? I hope I worded that right. Sounds confusing, but I have the flow in my mind. I just wanted to know if this is something Filemaker can handle? Thank you in advance for your help.
  11. For the longest time, I have used the 'Open URL' ScriptStep which makes a 'https://' request from both FMPro 5.5 and FMPro 8, to Internet Explorer. After installing the Internet Explorer 7 Beta on my PC, this wonderful functionality simply stopped working. Now when I initate the 'https://', the URL I receive in IE is 'http://1/'. Please note, normal non-secure 'http://' request continue to work properly. In search of a solution, I have checked my IE Internet Options against a PC with FMPro that still works correctly, but unfortunately I could not find an answer. Thus the post, anyone with any idea. All the best from Prague, Czech Republic, Dino
  12. I have a report I generate for my customers, at the end of the report, I want to throw in discriptions on how to fix the issues that the report lists. Is there a way to get something to only show up on/after the LAST page? I'm playing around with it now, and have been for a bit, hoping someone else has hit this problem. For those interested: Title Footers print only on the FIRST page of the document, and Footers Print on every page.
  13. How do I insert a photo into the Body field in FM 8 using the Email Campaign Management template that came with it? I don't want the photo as an attachment. I want it in the body of the email on the right side with the size being 2" square. All of the text needs to be wraped so that it is on the left side of photo.
  14. I believe FMP7 Developer shipped with media and a non-commercial (debug, development, etc.) license for Server 7 Advanced. Does anyone know if this will still be the case with FMP8 Advanced and Server 8? Chris
  15. I'm getting a very strange bug in FMP8A. In browse mode, I see tool tips. No big deal right? Except these tool tips I didn't create, and its not over anything but a color background. These tool tips say things like "Queen of Hearts" "Jack of Spades" "Eight of Spades" I'm not doing ANYTHING with cards, about 6 months ago I built a little 21 application with FM7D, but I haven't opened it in at least 3 months. Sometimes, my mouse even turns into a hand, like when you mouse over a button. But nothing is on my layout! This still didn't bug me that much, made me laugh really, but those same tool tips are now showing up in Browse mode!
  16. Hi all, I'm looking for some tips or advice on integrating FM with Final Cut. What my client wants is the ability to create a shot log of video segments in FileMaker with as little manual entry as possible. A typical workflow would be: 00:00:00-00:01:30 Opening scene of sunrise 00:01:31-00:04:52 Interview with Dorothy 00:04:53- 00:5:15 Flashback to childhood I would like to tie record creation in FM (each shot log) to triggering playback in Final Cut, i.e. a script would create a record, set the start time from Final Cut and run until user "stops", which sets stop time in the record. All this would leave to the logger is to make descriptive entries. Any suggestions on how to go about this are greatly appreciated!
  17. Along with the rename of Developer to Advanced FMI have provided an upgrade path for users like me who are not Developers but would love to get our hands on the custom features in the Developer versions. I paid an extra £70 to have the upgrade to 8 advanced rather than 8 and I think FMI should be congratulated for following up their reasoning for a name change and making it possible to move up.
  18. I have a script which archives records into an archive file, that has stopped working since my client upgraded from FMS7 to FMS8. It does a find, to isolate the record to be archived, and then performs an import script in the archive file, to import the found set from the original file. It then deletes the original record. This is then repeated many times, for each of the related tables. The records are now being deleted, but not archived. Has anyone any ideas? This is the portion of the script for one table: Set Field [jobs:gJob; jobs:kJob] Enter Find Mode [] Set Field [jobs:kJob; jobs:gJob] Perform Find [] If [Get ( FoundCount ) > 0] Perform Script ["import_acrchive_job" from file "archive.fp7"] Delete All Records [No Dialog] End If (gJob is a global to hold the key field kJob) And the import script "import_archive_job": Import Records [No Dialog: "control.fp7"; Add; Windows ANSI] TIA
  19. Apologies if this is covered elsewhere on this forum but don't have the chance to search properly at the moment. Two questions: 1. I have a radio button field with three options. When I create a new record I want the first button to be already selected by default but at the moment all three are just empty. Is this possible? 2. Is there a simple way to force a field to use Title Case. For instance if I'm lazy and type in, say germany (ie. with a lower case 'g') as I click return i want it to change automatically to Germany. I would want it change it for all words in the field - say I typed in south africa it would automatically make it South Africa. I sort of worked out a way to do it with a calculation using Left (... but that only worked for the first word. Thanks for any help. Quite happy to be pointed towards another section of this forum if I should have posted there instead.
  20. I'm trying to prevent the modification of a record once a value of a particular field has been set. I tried to do this with the field validation but this doesn't work as smoothly as I would like. Somehow when I click on scripts after I attempted to modify the record, it somehow allows it then eventually the validation message comes in then says would you like to abort the script. It is a little clunky. What I would like is for the user to experience as though the field became non-modifiable. I managed to get this experience by setting the user's privelege set to allow modification based on the value of the field. This works great with the only exception of the message that tells the user, "Youra ccess privileges do not allow you to perform this action" I would prefer if the error message was a bit more descriptive or reflective of what caused preventing the modification of the record. Is there a better way?
  21. Am I correct in thinking that right now you can download a 30-day trial version of FM 8, but not of FM 8 Advanced? Have any Volume Licensing Agreement (VLA) folks received either FM8 or FM8 advanced yet?
  22. I posted this earlier but have yet to get a response. I have a text field that stretches 7 pages on a layout. In FM7 I have no problem with this. In FMP8 there is a terrible delay between pressing a key on the keyboard and when the letter actually shows-up on the screen. Anyone else notice this problem? I have reported this to Filemaker but have yet to get a response. I have attached a sample file. KeyDelay.zip
  23. Just received our copy of server 8, but just wanted to know if those people still on v7 professional will be able to connect. Thanks
  24. ok I just went and tried to make a login/password for my fmp8 file and now I cannot access it! I didn't realize I needed to create an account to log in with before I assign a username and password. I discovered this after attempting to repeat what I did to lock myself out and locked myself out of another temp file. What I did was go to "File" then "File Options". I gave my file a username and a password and clicked ok. Filemaker then tells me "This file will be opened automatically using the specified account. To use a different account, hold down the Option key (Mac OS) or Shifrt key (Windows) while opening the file." I go to open the file and now it won't let me log in using the username and password I assigned. Is my data now hopelessly lost forever or is there a way I can get around this and actually log back in?? PLEASE tell me this isn't locked forever... -Terry
