  1. Hi, I am having issues importing a previously saved PDF in to a container field. It's throwing an "Unknown error: 20403" I have tried both: Insert PDF (with the appropriate imagemac: path prefix) and Insert File ( with filemac:) path prefix Script: $File = "filemac:/Macintosh HD/private/var/folders/tg/3bq5pqmn3mgdq7lbbw2p8l_r0000gn/T/S10.1/Myfile_02-14-2013_10:29:48_AM.pdf" // also tried desktop path files Go to Field [PDFContainer] Insert PDF[$File] or Insert File ["myTable::PDFContainer; $File"] The container field on the layout is set to allow interactive content I have tried defining the container as internal storage, and external store with the same results. I can manually import the PDF file with no issues. Surely this is a common thing, I have just never had this issue before. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Charles
  2. Hi all, Hope you might shed some light on this issue. I am writing a script to sync information between Filemaker Pro & Go, but the record import process is behaving strangely. Basically, for each table I want to synchronise, I have a batch of 4 scripts. This consists of 3 "doing" scripts, and one "controller" script. The controller script simply performs the 3 "doing" scripts, in order. I have 6 tables. Each has its own set of 4 sync scripts, which are mostly identical, except of course to reference the table I'm syncing at the time. *********** Now, obviously I want a nice big "Sync Now" button. This button performs one more script, which runs my 6 "controller" scripts in order. Thus, "Sync Now" should synchronise all 6 of my tables. Here's the weird bit. If I run the "controller" script manually for any given table, the table syncs perfectly. However, if I run all 6 "controller" scripts one after the other, using my "Sync Now" script, I get weird behaviour. Specifically, my iPad manages to update the master database with its changes (step 3 below), but fails to subsequently purge and reimport the freshly updated information from the master (step 4). I put in some deliberate pauses into the script so I could monitor the progress. The iPad does appear to reimport the data from master, but once the complete Sync Now script has run, the imported data is no longer in the table. It just disappears. I would normally assume that another of my scripts was giving a "Delete All" command, but it can't be, since the same would happen if/when I run the script manually on its own. I hope this makes sense! Any input appreciated. Is there a fundamental problem with using scripts to run scripts to run scripts etc? Thanks everyone. The scripting process is as follows: ***************** 1 - For a given table on the iPad, compare records against the equivalent table in the master database on FM Pro 2 - Delete records from the iPad which haven't changed, based on a modification date and unique ID 3 - Upload all new and updated records to the master database 4 - Once the upload is complete, purge the iPad table and import a fresh set of records from the master *****************
  3. I have encountered a new problem which I have never seen before. A script is performing a find with Set Error Capture [On]. I have the script performing a find and immediately following the find, Set Variable[$lastError = Get (LastError)]. However, after the find fails to find any records, it is still reporting the last error as "0". I have verified this by running it in Script Debugger and it fails to produce the 401 error after not finding any records. Have any of you encountered this issue?

    Strange Error

    Wrong Section of the fourms
  5. I just upgraded Server & Clients to FMP14, but when I try to activate the FTPeek plugin on my client I receive the following error: I'm using Mac if that matters. Any idea what this means?
  6. I am working with a FileMaker application that was built and maintained in FMP4, and am trying to migrate into FMP11. The files were converted first to .fp5, then imported into FMP11 and coverted to .fp7. Overall the fields, layouts, scripts and security accounts survived the process with only some adjustments. However, there is a problem with deleting records through a portal. Our main DB layout contains a portal to another table in another .fp7 file. The Relationships chart shows the relationship, and has the "Allow creation of records in this table via this relationship" and "Delete related records in this table when a record is deleted in the other table" checkboxes set for the portal source table. New records can be added through the portal with no problem, but when trying to delete I get "This operation cannot be performed because one or more of the relationships between these tables are invalid." Some particulars: The delete button is a container field from another table/file (not the portal source file). The Relationship is keyed on an ID field, but that field is not shown in the portal; the Delete Portal Row script is preceded by a Go to Field[select/Perform] that references a name value field on the portal row. The portal source table has Relationships that also set the "Allow creation of records in this table via this relationship" and "Delete related records in this table when a record is deleted in the other table" checkboxes - so deleting the portal row should also delete rows in that relationship (cascade). Deletion doesn't even work when clicking the "Delete Record" button directly on the DB file. (I've seen on numerous occasions that this particular dialog is unhelpful and I agree - its no more helpful than the Check Engine light in your car). I will also note that this delete functionality DID work in the conversion from .fp3 to .fp5: I can open these .fp5 files in FMP5 and the app works fine. Any thoughts?
  7. We seem to have some corruption in administration of licenses - see attached. Is there a way to manually remove the Device Sync Data to free up licenses. We plan a reinstall/upgrade over the Xmas break so a quick fix here would suffice.

    ODBC Error

    Hi all, It's me again.... I've temporarily gotten around my issues with "required value" fields in SQL data by adding a default value to all blank fields, however I have now found another error. I have a table of customers (BP_Details) which is retrieved from SQL server view using a DSN. I then have a local Filemaker table ("BPAddon") which I've linked to the BP_Detials table using a unique customer ID field. I wish to populate the records in the addon table via the Cusomter layout to supplement the data from SQL. As there are no records in the addon table I've selected "allow creation of records in this table via this relationship" on the add on table side. I can browse records fine, however as soon as I add data in a field on the addon table I receive an ODBC error: "You cannot specify scroll locking on a cursor that contains a remote table". Am I doing something wrong in the relationship? Thanks for any help!
  9. I distributed a runtime solution for testing, and the testers tell me that upon starting the .exe file, they get the error message - Can't find 'xerces-c_3_0.dll'Can't find 'xerces-c_3_0.dll'. I have tried it on my computers and it works, so I cannot for the life of me understand why several of them would get this message. I zipped the folder, and they unzip it their end and run the .exe file. Anyone ever expereinced this? Thanks so much and have a great day. Error Message.pdf
  10. I have two users who cannot use ANY scripts in the database. This is a file we've had for about 5 years. Once a year we make a copy of the file and it's our new database for the next fiscal year. We've never had a problem. I'm using FM 11.0v1 on a Mac using OSX 10.9 and everything is fine and dandy. No issues. Another user on a Mac is also fine. However, I have two users on Windows (one user on Windows XP sp3 and another on Windows 8) using two different versions of FM (8.5v 1 and 11.0 v1) who cannot run any scripts. If you start any script, it doesn't run. I've even tried creating simple scripts that simply change a field to "9" and they still don't run. Yet, everything works fine on the Macs. The file we're using is hosted on FileMaker server and we open remotely. I've tried also opening it locally and it still doesn't work on the Windows machines. It doesn't seem to be the version of FM - I'm wondering if Windows issued some patch that affected this recently. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
  11. I have a few employees working on Data Entry via IWP- when logging in, a sort is performed so that all of them on entirely different records, and I don't have their records open on my console. However, a few of them have told me that they quite regularly receive the message; "Another user is currently working on this record..." and end up losing data. Is there any way that one can get this message for any other reason,as I am pretty much 100% sure, no one is on the same record as each other at any given time? Thanks so much, Maria
  12. What is the correct way to use the new SetErrorCapture plugin function. The 360Works documentation has not been updated to illustrate how this function should be used.  I am getting a number of dialog boxes popping up now that I'd like to suppress. For instance, in SuperContainer when a user cancels a file download dialog, I'm getting an error dialog after.  I've tried the following at the start of each script:  Set Variable [$error; Value:SCSetErrorCapture( "On" )]  but that doesn't seem to do the trick.  Any advice?
  13. Mac OS X Server v10.6.8 FileMaker Server 12.0.1.178 During a daily scheduled backup in which it's set to keep a maximum of 14 backups, once there are 14 folders as expected I am receiving error messages stating: FMServer Error 685 Error occurred while deleting backup folder... When I look at the folder(s) in question it has successfully deleted all the database copies, only leaving the externally stored container files. All of them. And their folders. I looked at the permissions for each folder and they were all identical; all having fmserver/fmsadmin with Read & Write priv's. Thoughts, suggestions ?!
  14. Since this morning we have been receiving an Error when trying to process credit cards using Plastic. Anyone else using Payeezy and experiencing this issue? Any suggestions? Thanks!
  15. Hi, I am very new to using ScriptMaster and have run into some problems when trying to run a few test lines of java. I am trying to create a module that will modify AcroFields on a PDF document, and am therefore going to be using the iText library. I have added this in the Jar Libraries section. Here is the script I am trying to run: import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.PdfDocument; import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.PdfWriter; import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.PdfReader; import com.itextpdf.forms.PdfAcroForm; //Initialize PDF document PdfDocument pdf = new PdfDocument(new PdfReader("C:/Users/Andy/Desktop/VA_Form.pdf"), new PdfWriter("C:/Users/Andy/Desktop/New_VA_Form.pdf")); PdfAcroForm form = PdfAcroForm.getAcroForm(pdf, true); and I am getting this error when attempting to run the script: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/itextpdf/layout/element/BlockElement Parameters: {data="my custom data"} ---Script--- Script: import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.PdfDocument; import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.PdfWriter; import com.itextpdf.kernel.pdf.PdfReader; import com.itextpdf.forms.PdfAcroForm; //Initialize PDF document PdfDocument pdf = new PdfDocument(new PdfReader("C:/Users/Andy/Desktop/VA_Form.pdf"), new PdfWriter("C:/Users/Andy/Desktop/New_VA_Form.pdf")); PdfAcroForm form = PdfAcroForm.getAcroForm(pdf, true); return "true!"; I am not sure how the classpath works in ScriptMaster, but assumed it was to do with this? I have four additional libraries (Itext7-Forms-7.0.0.Jar, Itext7-Io-7.0.0.Jar, Itext7-Kernel-7.0.0.Jar, Itext7-Pdfa-7.0.0.Jar). Any help is much appreciated, I am really stuck and can't seem to find any help in previous posts. Thanks
  16. FileMaker 15 for FM GO Refresh Portal script step gives an Error Code "116 Layout object is missing" Thoughts? Thank you!
  17. Hello all, I have a strange problem that I have not been able to work out over the past few days. I have created a popover search bar for my layout and am using the default Asset Quick setup. Within that inside the Asset Details window I have created a popover button that exposes a search bar. The odd part happens once a quick search has been done. The search provides the correct assets in the list, however it ALSO includes what ever asset was currently selected. For example If I have 3 items, each in a category of "Laptop, Desktop, and iPad" and the Desktop asset is selected, when I perform the quick search with the word "Laptop" I'll get the laptop item, but I will also get the Desktop item. This happens with what ever asset is selected. In Filemaker Pro 13 it doesn't appear that you can have no assets selected, the lowest you can go is the first asset entry. I hope this makes sense and am appreciative of any incite anyone can give! Thank you, Commit Records/Requests[] # If[not IsEmpty ( Assets::Dash Search )] Set Field [Assets::Dash Search] # #Performs Search Perform Quick Find [$data] # Else If [IsEmpty ( Assets::Dash Search)] Show All Records # End If # Go to Record/Request/Page [First]

    Inventory Error

    Hello, This is my first time using this forum so please excuse any mistakes.. I have setup a standard pos system with DB for invoicing a customer, inventory and purchasing inventory from Maker. The DB is setup in such was so that I have a layout for Invoicing the customer and within the invoice are the line items for each product that I carry in the inventory. The Inventory is defined with barcode, description, prices and most importantly stock. The purchase order is setup the same way as such so the i have layout with purchase order sheet, then within are the line item with barcodes, description etc... Now, the problem that I am facing is that i am using calculations to keep track of the stock where as if i order 1 item then 1 item gets added and if I see that item 1 gets deducted etc.. now the problem is that after certain length of time... I see stock for items that I didn't order. It will just appear out of the blue as stock.... I am totally stumped and urgently need of help. A POS system with wrong information on stock on hand is useless... Looking for any suggestions or comments. Regards, Young
  19. Hi all, I just was notified by The Support Group ( a filemaker support group ) that after the 11 v.4 upgrade FileMaker is good to go running Lion and that FileMaker Server 11 as well less web publishing with an update due in October. So I have installed Lion and now Filemaker Server is not hosting the files. So I try to open the Server java application and get this message. 'Unable to launch application' - I have not found anything on the web how to resolve this.

  20. I have a problem with filemaker server 14, when I install it this happened: I don't know what is causing this, help.
  21. I have a client on a Mac which is throwing up an error: Â java. lang.illegalArgumentException as per the attached. Â He was running on 10.6 with an old Java version and we updated the machine thinking this might be the issue. So the machine now has all the latest Java, Mac OS updates and the latest SuperContainer plugin. Â The issue arrises when uploading a file and the plugin calls the SCSetContainer function. Â The script is setting the base URL at the start of the script. Â Any help appreciated.
  22. I successfully deployed SuperContainer (SC) via the Web Publishing Engine (WPE) of FileMaker Server 11 for years, on a Mac mini (2010) running OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), with no problems. But I ran into the following problem with Mavericks and SC: I upgraded to more modern versions of OS X and FMS by doing a completely clean installation: Formatted the Mac mini's drive; Did a clean installation of OS X 10.9.1 (Mavericks); and Installed FileMaker Server 12v6 without problems. Next, I downloaded the latest SuperContainer from 360Works (v2.896). When I double-clicked the "Mac Installer.app" (also known as "SCInstaller") to deploy SC with FMS, as I did before with FMS11, I was surprised to see this alert pop up: "'Mac installer' is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash." Mac Installer is damaged.tiff I tried downloading a fresh copy, using Safari and Firefox; same error. I’d never seen this message before when installing any software, and I found no reports of it in this forum or in TechNet. The icon displayed in the alert window indicated that it was originating from Mac OS Gatekeeper. So the solution I tried was to change the "Security & Privacy" System Preference of Mavericks, under the "General" tab, to "Allow apps downloaded from Anywhere", rather than the more restrictive "Mac App Store and identified developers" option. (Perhaps another option would have been just to control-click the app icon and then select “Open”, to exempt the app from Gatekeeper; I didn't test that.) Apple’s support article on Gatekeeper mentions this “Damaged” app warning message is an indication that “the app has been altered by something other than the developer.” I doubt that any “true damage” is present in the Mac Installer for SC. I think the message appeared because AppleScript scripts get modified after they’re signed. An Apple support article on Mavericks security states: “Some apps and tools, such as AppleScript applications and some legacy tools, modify themselves after signing. These types of apps cannot be opened unless the Gatekeeper setting in Security & Privacy preferences is set to Anywhere” I had only tried the SC Installer on Mavericks, but I suppose the same error might have occurred on Mountain Lion or Lion, since Gatekeeper was introduced with Lion. It appears, for now, that we may need to temporarily disable Gatekeeper (by choosing the "Anywhere" option) in order for SC's Mac Installer to work. David M. Hollander, MD Combined Fields Consulting
  23. Hello, we use your plugin Scribe for editing Excel files in our Filemaker solution. Since a few days we get an error message when calling the method "ScribeDocLoad" (see appendix) for newer Excel files. Older Excel files from the beginning of 2018 are not affected. So we wanted to ask if there might be a problem with the error in Scribe. We are currently using: Filemaker Pro Advance version 16.0.3.302 Microsoft Excel 2016 Ver. 16.0.9029.2253 64-bit Scribe version 3.08 In the appendix you will find an Excel file that throws an error message when opening with Scribe.

  24. I'm running a script that should find a set of records within a specific date range. The date range is contained within a variable '$DateRange' which is then entered from the 'Perform Find' script step. Regardless of how I have the date range formatted, the script returns error 500 after the find. I've entered the date both as '1/22/2012...2/26/2012' or '22/1/2012...26/2/2012' or '1-22-2012...2-26-2012' and nothing seems to work. I've run this find request with the value I see for $DateRange in the data viewer while the script is running manually and it works without issue. It just doesn't work during the script. I've run this sort of find before without any issues... the only thing that has changed is that I've upgraded to FM14 (from 13). Any ideas???
  25. I was pulling my hair out earlier due to a problem with FileMaker Go 13.0.2 on my iPhone 5S (updated OS). I'm running it against a FileMaker 13 server hosted at FileMakerProHosting.com and developed the database with FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced. I have a simple layout for updating a table. On the iPhone, I would click on a field and modify the contents and then go to another record and do the same (List view). If I went back to the original record and tried to modify the field, again, I would get the subject message. Actually, if I went to any record, I got the same message. This would NOT occur on FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced on my Mac. Nor would it happen on my iPad running FileMaker Go 13.0.2 (same version). The problem seems to be unique to the iPhone. I also noticed that my Mac and iPad were not getting any of the field updates I was able to make on the iPhone prior to the error appearing. This makes me think FileMaker Go was in some funky state and not pushing updates--it thought the field was still in the midst of a change. What I do recall is that earlier I had become interested in learning how well Siri would work to enter data into a field. This may or may not have anything to do with the issue surfacing. I have tried using Siri on my iPad and experienced no problems with this same layout. If I logged the iPhone out of the database and reconnected, I would have the same experience. It seems I can update one record, but when I go to another, the problem seemed to surface. Note--the Layout is set to "Save record changes automatically". I tried adding a script trigger to force a commit when leaving the field, but without any benefit. I then tried powering down/up the iPhone and that seems to have fixed the issue. I don't know how to report this to FileMaker, but I do know from other threads that others have experienced this same issue. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. We're close to putting this system in the field to manage all of our service techs and I'm a bit anxious the problem will surface, again.
