  1. FYI, the FM 9 installer contains a Read Me file that is somewhat buried, and is not accessible after installation from the Help menu. I'm guessing that many of us missed it the first time. This readme file contains a lot of useful last-minute information that is not in the help system. On mac, it's located in the "English Extras" folder in the DMG installer.
  2. Unable to open a database file created in 8.5 in version 9.0. It just hangs when trying open. I've tried deleting all file references and validations using files not accessible on computer where I am trying to open the file. I've deleted all users requiring authentication by anything other than Filemaker Pro.

    Purchase Options

    I am looking at rolling out the database i am developing within our business. I am looking at the best way to do this. I have a few questions... *Seat Rental-Has anyone come across this my boss mentioned it as a possiblity. Personally i don't see the benefits. *Pro V Advnaced-I want to use the features within advnaced for development and maintanence. Plus the tooltip/menus. But does this also mean i have to use advanced for all my users seats so they can utilise these features?? Or will pro cover this? *Server options-i am thinking of leaning more towards advnaced as i am the type of guy that likes to have options for expansion. And if i did need a feature offered in advance i would like to utilize it without upgrading and all the issues that come with it. any insight on these points would be helpful as. thankyou. Brendan
  4. I'm running Vista and my new FM9 Advanced. When opening the script editor the Copy Past Cancel and OK buttons are missing. Strange ..... Marcel

    Crazy Slow

    I've got a very small database (1000 records or so) with about 50 scripts. In list view, when I move from record to record I get an hour glass with each move time. Likewise the running of any script. I'm mean its wicked slow. I'm running on a dual boot machine, xp on both sides, but I haven't upgraded one side to 9 from 8.5. On the 8.5 side its as fast as a scalded dog. Anyone else having this problem? Any help appreciated.
  6. Hi Filemaker Lovers, I am having the below doubt -- can any one help me please, I am going to create a website in php and which is going to be controled by filemaker CMS application. For this, I have the below doubt, 1. We can able to bold/italic the text selected using the filemaker format options. But, when I am showing this in web via PHP -- it shows the text normally without formatting. Kindly can any one help me please -- how to achieve this ? Thanks in advance.. Hari
  7. I know that this isn't as glamorous as ESS, but the expansion of the Arrange Toolbar to include the "Resize to Smallest Width," etc will save me countless trips to the side-kick menu. Sometimes it's the small things. (Yes, I want Layout management folders, like Scripts).
  8. Anyone else running FMP 9.0v1 on managed client? I have installed FMP 9.0v1 onto my 10.4.10 managed client and when logging in under a managed user environment, FMP 9.0v1 will not launch. It acts as if it will, but then stops. It almost looks like the program is trying to open some registration file, but I haven't been able locate what it's trying to do. If I log in as an admin, it works as expected. I called support and their answer was, give them admin access to the machine and it will work. Problem is, that's not a practical solution for us given the fact that we're a school and staff do not have their own machines, meaning middle school age kids will have a field day trashing the workstation and doing things that they shouldn't...let alone it being a nightmare. Previous versions of FMP ran fine if a user wasn't an admin, but not FMP 9.0v1. Anyone have any suggestions...should I abandon 9 and go back to 8.5.x? I have heard that 9.0 is suppose to be the one to use and I'd really like to go that route, but I seem to have hit a road block.
  9. I installed FileMaker Pro on a client machine and was able to connect to the databases on the FileMaker server database host. Everything was golden. Then, the machine needed to be reloaded (and we completely blew away and reinstalled everything). After I reinstalled FileMaker Pro, I could no longer connect to and see the databases on the FileMaker Server. For the life of me, I cannot figure out what has changed from the last load to this load. FileMaker Pro worked and still works on every machine we installed it on, but now, it doesn't work on any machine we re-load. The Firewall is off. OS is XP, both before and after re-load. We tried completely opening up the registry. Nothing works. Any ideas? Thanks, Joni
  10. OK, I am probably going to regret posting this, but it's the end of the day and I'm fried and I figure one of you guys or girls will be able to answer this before I can figure it out tonight...... Let's say I have a field(Field 1) with a list of items: 1 2 3 4 Now let's say I have another field(Field 2) with values in it: 1 3 Now let's say I want to return all the values in Field 1 that don't appear in Field 2. How would I go about doing that? FilterValues(Field1; Field2) will return those values in Field 2 that DO appear in Field1. I'm looking for just the opposite.
  11. Hi! I recently started to work with filemaker and so far I'm really impressed. But a problem that i can't really solve showed up. I followed the guide at http://fmcollective.com/?p=43 which describes how to insert only the map part of google maps (not the whole webpage) in filemaker using web viewer. I create the 2 php files i needed, put them on my webpage and then directed the custom webadress feature to this location. But now to the problem. If my adresses in my databas contaions å ä ö it doesn't work. I've tried to figure out where the problem lies. Is it the charset of the php files or webbrowser but i think it has something to do with the web viewer feature of filemaker. Do u know?
  12. I was looking at the FMS 9 setting under web publishing on the PHP tab, there is a section labeled "Record Data Pre-validations" Any ideas what this does, and how it does it? I didn't see any documentation on it.
  13. I am a complete newbie to FMP, but at work we have a new setup where some of us are on Macs and some on PCs. The person who I am working with is using a PC and I use both PC/MAC. Whenever anyone attaches a .pdf file using a PC, the mac users cannot open the file (cannot double click or extract it to desktop etc). PC uses seem to be able to open their own attachments and those attached using a MAC. Does anyone have any advice about how to fix this problem? Thanks in advance.
  14. I have just upgraded from FMP 6.5 to FMP 9.0v3 on a single Windows XP platform (no network). My problem is that I keep getting the following message as I try to use my databases: "This record cannot be mofied in this window because it is already modified in a different window". How can I overcome this? Thank you.

    Window Shifting?

    I'm experiencing something odd with V8.5 & V9, where the entire window does this sort of shifting or flashing or skewing several times before it finally stops. This happens usually in layout mode, although it has happened in browse mode a few times. The screen/window always snaps back into place, but I can't figure out why it does this. Never had this issue in V7, and I have downloaded any/all updates from FM. Anyone else had this happen?

    FM Download Issue

    Has anyone else had issues downloading files from the website with a maintainence release link? I try and it gets about 5 MB on any file and stops. I have tried on 6 machines on various networks. Just curious.
  17. I'm having troubles with the Open Remote function in Filmaker 9 Advanced on Leopard. When I choose this command, nothing happens. One would expect a window with access to FM servers and remote files, but nada... It works fine on 3 other (Tiger) machines that access the same server. I've chekced my firewall settings, checked if something is blocking port 5003. I've reinstalled FM again from the cd. The first time I hit the Open remote command, Leopard asked me if FM remote connections should be allowed. I did allow this. I've even turned off the firewall. Still no luck. This is driving me mad! Any suggestions?
  18. I have been using the trial version FileMaker Pro 9 and have purchased FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced. I now want to use the Pro Advanced version instead of the trial version. Questions: Do I uninstall the trial version first? Do I install Advanced and leave the trial version active? Do I enter the license key in the trial version? What is the best procedure?
  19. Hi All First post here, hope I'm in a good place to start. I have a database that value list for radio buttons that is filled with a calculated field. The calculation concatenates two fields from a related table. It also is set to be only filled with the values related to the record in use. This worked wonderfully until last week sometime, when suddenly the value list no longer matches the order I added the two fields in, but is now sorting the list alphabeticaly. Also, now I'm getting a warning that the value list "won't work" because it can't be indexed, due to the use of related fields. Any clues why this has suddenly happened? I haven't done any updates or reinstalls, Leopard and 9v3 have been on the machine for nearly a month now. Yours Hopefully Vern
  20. I created a database in Filemaker Pro 9 and worked with it for a few hours. I closed it and went to lunch. I came back, opened it, and it asked me for a password. I didn't set one up, nor did I set the document to ask for a password. Is there a preset that I can use to regain my work?
  21. Is it worth upgrading a customer from 7 to 9 just yet? or are there usually bugs and the like with new releases of FM? just wondering as i have noticed that they are still selling FM 8.5 on the site, why is this? thanks

  23. I loaded FM 9 adv on my Win Vista based HP laptop and the short cut keys ctl-alt-arrow for aligning objects stopped working. I have to use the menu to align objects. I don't have this problem with FM9 adv on my Win Vista desktop computer. Can this be a keyboard issue? Is there a setting somewhere in FM?
  24. Hi Guys, The IT department rolled out patch number 3 for version 9 for FM. The previous install was 9v1. It seems as though everytime a user tries to open up a LOCAL file (i.e. a file that is not hosted by our server but could be on the local disk or a networked mapped drive), FileMaker decides to go into uninstall mode. Has anyone encountered this behaviour and knows of a workaround. We have approximately 600 machines and about 60 have come back to us. We've had to unistall the whole app and then reinstall it. Reading through the patch notes, it does say you can install v3 on top of v1, as my initial gut reaction was you had to install the patches in sequence v1,v2 and then v3. Thanks Jalz
