  2. Question: by vaughan01 » Tue Oct 12, 2010 3:06 pm Thanks for such great product. I really like the look of this software and as I am new to Filemaker it seems to tick many boxes. I would like to know if I can modify the searches for Account/Name/Staff to turn off the warning pop up window every time you search. Regards, Vaughan ------------------------- Look at script (400) Account_ID_Search. To bypass the warning simply disable the line that says Show Custom Dialog... It's about half way down the script
  3. I am unable to find one specific record using Quick Find, but can find this same record using a standard field search. I can find all other records that I search for using Quick Find. Any suggestion for a fix please?
  4. Question by nomadicstate » Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:26 pm I may be missing something very obvious, but how do you go about creating a purchase order? --------------------- Hello Nomadicstate, Thank you for using FM Starting Point! FMSP does not come with a built-in Purchase Order module. You can easily customize the database to include a Purchase Order layout based on the Invoices module. Simply duplicate the Invoices Detail Printout (L94), rename to "Purchase Order," and make any other changes that you wish. You can add a button to the Invoice detail layout to navigate to there whenever you want to print the PO. This would be the easiest and quickest way to make FMSP more suitable for your needs. Let us know if you have any more questions   Thank you, Zachary Church
  5. Question: by mikeh123 » Fri Jul 09, 2010 2:52 pm Just wondering if there is any required process for exporting and importing. I have the DB up and running and in use but am making changes offline. I exported contacts and accounts then imported them into the new DB. Of course this has really messed thing up (prob with related accounts and contacts - didnt think about that). I'll need to work on it live I reckon but for future reference whats the easiest way to export the whole DB and re-import into a new fresh shell. ?? Thanks ---------------- Hello Mike, Are you transferring records from one copy of FM Starting Point to a new copy? If so, there is an special "Import" feature that you will find in the "Preferences" module under the "Import" tab. Are you transferring records from an old FileMaker database to your copy of FMSP? If so, select "File > Import Records > File..." this will allow you to transfer records directly from one database to the other. OR you can create a script in the "Script Manager". You will need one script step, "Import Record". This will lead you through the same process as importing through the command in the Menu bar, but it will save your import options. Are you transferring records from an non-FileMaker database to your copy of FMSP? If so, follow the second explanation, but instead of importing from a "File" choose the appropriate data source. If you have any follow-up questions feel free to post them here. Best Regards, Calvin Mosiman

  8. Question: tjferris » Sat Mar 20, 2010 1:53 am I am a file maker n00b. What i am wanting to do is to not have fm starting point bring up it's own number everytime i click the new record button in the project tab. I want to be able to put in what ever job number I need to input there. How do I make this a regular box that i can type text into?? By doing this I will still be able to search by project number and cross it to a customer and invoice correct?? thanks in advance.  ------------------------- Tjferris, Let me see if I can answer this for you... A fundamental issue for relational databases is data integrity. That means, that generally relationships work as they are intended and data that is entered doesn't "get orphaned"..or attached to the wrong related record. The ID fields...known as "keys"... are serial numbers set up to prevent users for assigning their own numbers, where a user could assign the wrong number, or a duplicate number, causing the relationships to misbehave. For example: If you create related records...such as a related note...to the contact...and then you change the "ID_Contacts" field value for the contact record...all the connected notes...get disconnected...forever. The user would think the software erased their notes. That being said...sometimes the ID fields should not be seen by users...since they don't understand what the field is,etc. Or, as in your case, the user wants an identifier field...that they can edit themselves. In this case, remove the ID fields from the layout (leave the field unchanged in the table and relationships)...and define for yourself a NEW field which the user can input their own ID value. That way...the relational connections between contact, notes, invoices, etc... doesn't get broken. If this doesn't make sense, then its time to get some training materials on relational database fundamentals.   - Richard ------------------------------ OK...sorry...let me strictly answer your question... To make a text or number field enterable... (not a calc field)...on a layout,  (1) Go to layout mode (2) Select the field (3) In the Inspector, go to the "Data" tab (4) Go down to the section, "BEHAVIOR" > "Field Entry" (5) Check off the options for entry into the field in BROWSE Mode and/or FIND Mode. Thats it! - Richard  
  9. Question:by bobgorel » Mon Feb 07, 2011 6:16 am Hello: First of all thank you for creating this wonderful package. In my business we often have to issue identical invoices. People might be buying three vehicles with same set of accessories but each vehicle has to be on its own invoice. When I click on Duplicate Record none of the line items are coming through which is quite frustrating as I have to go back and forth and copy them one by one. Am I missing something? Thanks, Bob ------------------------ Hello Bob, When duplicating a invoice with FM Starting Point use the "Duplicate Invoice" on the layout rather than with FileMaker (Command +D). With FMSP it will duplicate ALL of the line items, with Filemaker it will not. Thank you for posting and have a blessed day! Zachary Church Richard Carlton Consulting inc.
  10. Question by garydr » Fri Feb 03, 2012 10:28 pm I'm starting an order entry solution using FM Starting Point. I'm just wondering, when you created this was the Invoice module intended for purchasing of supplies or sales to customers? On the Invoices Data Entry layout there is a reference to <<Supplier_Company>> which implies that it is intended to be used for making purchases. thanks Gary ---------------------- Hello Gary, The Invoice module is used solely for goods sold to customers. The Supplier field gives you the option of tracking the origin of the item you're selling to the customer. Best Regards, Jacqueline Schuck
  11. Question:  PeterK » Wed Sep 15, 2010 11:10 pm Just downloaded FMSP to use with FMPro Advanced and would like to learn the names of the fonts used throughout FMSP. Some layouts will display font names and sizes while others only display the size. Is there a place to find a listing of all fonts used in FMSP? Thanks ----------------- Hi! When building FMSP, we used "Arial" of different sizes on all of the main layouts. For the Detailed reports, we used "Optima", and for the List Reports, we used Times New Roman. Hopefully this answers your question. Have a great day! Wilson Leppert Richard Carlton Consulting
  12. Question: by bobgorel » Sat Mar 12, 2011 6:29 pm Hi, I have an invoice that requires multiple lines of text per record. I have expanded ID and Description fields to height of 100 but as soon as I add a second line item, the first line overylays and overprints on top of the second line and so forth.  Can I have multiple lines per entry in invoice line items portal? One line invoices work fine and I'm able to print them but as soon as I add another line item it overprints.  I have tried setting "Sliding Up based on Items above" and I have tried it with "resize enclosed part" and without it yet no difference. I have also tried setting the portal to slide up and without it. I have increased the size of all fields but that does not do the trick either.  I would like to get out of this prison of 1 line records. For some invoices I'm required by some Custom departments to display certain amount of information that spans three to four lines of text per vehicle. I spend all day yesterday to figure it out and finally had to re-create the invoice in Excel to be able to send it before the deadline. Thanks, Regards, Bob ------------------------------- Hi Bob, You can achieve this by cutting the # of rows in the portal down by half, and then doubling the height of the portal, as well as the height of the line items. This will allow you to display multiple lines of data in the line items. - DGPExpress  
  13. Question: by mikeh123 » Fri Jul 09, 2010 11:41 am Hi guys, First off big thanks for putting out a really solid, well designed template. We are a small 2 man startup and this is a really big help to us. I can play and change a bit with FM but am not a developer or even a half decent FM user. Products - What was the intended use for this as I'm a touch confused as it seems to fit really well into two different areas. Ideally I'd like both but seems to be one or the other. I see it as a way to record what stock you have and where you bought it from. So if a customer orders a mac and a network switch I put in details of where it came from how many in stock and cost etc. Brilliant. I create quote, turn into invoices and assign the stock to it. Still great. The other bit you have is the serial number. Now imagine once I've actually got the mac or switch in I then look at the s/n and input and assign to the customer who bought it. Thats also great as I can build up a list by account name of what kit they ordered and the date and serial number for warranty purposes. The only issue this presents is if I have 50 macs sold all the same we create 50 products all with same name and assign one by one so if you go to create a new quote and search for product mac there are 50 in the list all the same. Imagine in a year we might have 200 - 500 products all pretty much the same creating huge lists which become a little unwieldy. Now if I did one or the other it makes sense but what do you think about an inventory sort of approach on items already in the list. Not sure how clear I am with the above ramblings but thought I'd ask to see what was originally envisaged. Apart from that everything is looking really good and very thankful you've put this out there. Really nice work. -------------------------- Hello Mike, Glad to hear that FM Starting Point is working well for you! Thank you for your question and let me explain our philosophy behind FM Starting Point. FMSP was created as a fully functional database with flexability in its operation so that it might fill numerous business applications with different workflows. It was also created using the most simple developer techniques so that any FileMaker user with a limited knowledge of the software would be able to open the database and easily make changes. Because there was no specific business for this database there were several places where we left options open. It is possible for the user to create Estimates and Invoices that do not reference the Products module at all. Some FileMaker users have taken that feature to bill for work time which naturally cannot be kept in stock or categorized in a Products module. Some users might be selling big-ticket items where they would want a record of each indivitual product item and the serial number without inventory for each product. Others would like to have several products where they could keep track of inventory coming in and going out and would not keep track of the serial numbers. I think the last option is what you are looking for. If you would still like to keep track of serial numbers, I recommend entering the serial number directly into the line items for the Estimate or Invoice as part of the "Description" field. If you have any further questions feel free to post more! Best Regards, Calvin Mosiman

  15. Question: by DGPExpress » Sat Mar 26, 2011 5:14 pm How can I lock an invoice from changes after it is printed and mailed. Regards Don ----------------------- Hi Don, Getting some help may be useful...but if you are feeling brave...here is the general sequence of things that need to be done. (1) Define a new field (the name is arbitrary)...something like "Flag_Invoice_Locked" (2) You need to limit emailing and printing of the invoice to a script. (3) Once the script to email or print is run...include the line Setfield "Flag_Invoice_Locked" = 1 (4) Define a new privilege set in the security manager in the FileMaker database. This set should allow EDIT of Invoice table to a customer setting. Allow Editing if "Flag_Invoice_Locked" ≠ 1 (5) Make sure the users that will be restricted are using a username and password account...that is running on the privilege set.  This is about a 30 minute exercise for a FM developer...a 3 day exercise for someone who is learning the tool. - RIchard Carlton
  16. Question by josenoulezdemiguel » Fri Mar 23, 2012 5:40 pm Can Startingpointpoint send mils through GMAIL ? I mean if I setup my gmail account in the mail settings from Starting Point, but I can not send my mails through my gmail account. ------------------------- Hello, FM Starting Point can send out emails through Gmail using the "SMTP" fields in the Preferences module. Make sure that you have the "SMTP Server" option selected and then fill out the remaining fields with the required information. You should be able to find the information needed in your email client if you have previously set that up to work with Gmail. Otherwise, you can get on gmail and get the information there.

  17. Question: by koshi » Tue Apr 27, 2010 3:46 pm Hello again, i have a new question. In the inventory log, i can see the invoices that have decreased the stock. Invoice ID, changed from, changed to, date, etc. How can i display the name from who the invoice was made for? That was i can always look easily from each product who has bought it and check if i gave a special price. Thank you very much! ------------------------ Hello Koshi, This is a great idea! And fortunately it will not take much effort to implement the changes. Here is how I recommend making the change. In the Inventory Log Portal change the column header "Account" to "Contact". Then double click the field. Change the Table Occurance (the popup menu at the top) to "T15b1_products_INVOICES||id_invoice|. In the list of feilds select the "Contact_Name" field. Now the contact for the invoice will be displayed in the Inventory Log. Let me know if you have any more questions. Calvin Mosiman
  18. Question: by alexransome » Sun Dec 19, 2010 2:57 pm Hi, How can I make the calendar display the contacts name rather than the subject of the new activity. I'm trying to use the file from the point of view of a patient appointment booking system. Thanks to the creator/s for the great work. Fantastic. ----------------------- Hello Alexransome, To make the calender display the contact name rather than the subject of the activity, you need to make some changes to the field. Here are some simple instructions on how to do that. When you have FMSP running,  Go to File > Manage > Database...  Bring up the table "TDL_To_Dos" Look for the field "Item". Select "Item" and choose the "Options" button in the bottom right hand corner. In options, check the box "Look-up Value" Your Starting with table should be: "T19_TODOLIST". And your Lookup from related table should be: "T19b_todolist_CONTACT||id_contact|" Copy value from field: "::Name_Full" , press OK. This will set the subject of the new activity as your patients name and you can enter your more detailed appointment information into "Notes". Zachary Church

  20. Question: by jjgaubert » Fri Jun 04, 2010 3:37 pm Hi, First Thank you for your free, solution.  I'm using it for my little job Q. when I'm in the estimate module and I would like to send directly the estimate by the button "Email Estimate", when this estimate is sent I would like to have an Activity History record in the contact module. Exactly like when I send an email to the contact, then there is a note that is created in the contact module. I think there is something to add, in the script "(905) EST_email_estimate", like "Performs the script - (739) Make Activity From Email - which creates an Activity History record for email sent if the option is checked in the Preferences module" I send the email directly by SMTP. I hope my explanation is good now. Thank you for your next answer. Thank you, Jean-Jacques -------------- Hello Jean-Jacques, The best way to add this feature is to create a new script and then refer to it from the "Email Estimate" script that already exists. First, Start by duplicating script "(739) Make Activity From Email", and rename it "(0916) Make Activity from Emailed Estimate". Second, Remove the "IF" statement from the Script change all the "Set Variable" steps to refer to fields within the Estimate Module. $Email should be something like [ "This estimate was sent to " & id_contact & " on " & Get(CurrentDate) & ¶ &  Order Total & ¶ &  Notes Internal ] Third, You need to change the navigation so it returns you to the Estimate layout. Last add a "Perform Script" step at the end of "(905) EST_email_estimate" script" the step should refer to the new script (915) that you just creatied. I hope that this has finally answered your question. I really like your idea here, and we may even use it in a future version of FM Starting Point! Let me know if you have any more questions. Good Luck, Calvin Mosiman

  22. Question: by Fons1302 » Sat Sep 04, 2010 9:58 am Hi, First of all, thank you very much for this great solution! I have a question about how to change the text in the e-mail to which the PDF file of an estimate is attached. I'm talking about this text: "Hello X, Attached to this email you will find an Estimate from my company name. If there is any problem in opening this document or if the document was not attached at all, please let us know." I would like to make this text a little bit more personal but I can't find where to do that. Can anyone tell me where I can change this text? Thank you very much, Fons --------------------- Fons, There are 2 basic ways to change your company name in the email. First you can go to the Preferences layout and insert your company name information. Or, you can edit script 905 by replacing the company name field in both Send Mail script steps with your actual company name. The first option should be the better one for you. Frank ---------------------   Thanks Frank but I think I have not made very clear what I meant. It's not the company name that I want to change, that get's filled in properly by the 905 script, no problem there. It is the rest of the text of the e-mail in question that I want to be able to change/expand. Basically I just want to add something like "kind regards, Fons" to it. I know that it is the 905 script that creates that e-mail and the PDF of the estimate but I can't find where I can change the text of this e-mail.  Cheers, Fons --------------------------- "Hello " & T08b_estimates_CONTACT||id_contact|::Name_First & "," & ¶ & ¶ &  "Attached to this email you will find an Estimate from " & T08l_estimates_PREFERENCES||id_constant|::Company_Name & "." & ¶ & ¶ &  ¶ & ¶ &  "If there is any problem in opening this document or if the document was not attached at all, please let us know." & ¶ & ¶ & "Regards,¶¶Fons"      
  23. Question: by sjamieson7812 » Mon Nov 29, 2010 4:08 am Can you explain how the to do's are intended to be used. I would expect that I would create todo to remind myself of something I need to do. If I'm on staff, there is no todo tab. Is it intended that I would create a todo from my contact record and that I would put my name in as the contact so that it would show up under my to do list? Is the staff field on the todo just for referance as staff don't have a todo tab? Also, what is the indended relationship between staff and contacts. I notice that a staff field is in the contact record.  On the calendar you can use now filter by user. That must be the Filemaker usename. Does that tie into a contact or staff record. Thanks Scott -------------------- Hello Scott, Staff is intended to be people working for the company using the database. In some businesses, staff are assigned to Contacts to service them. This is a practice that we use at RC Consulting. The User filtering field pulls names from the Staff table. The original intention was that the person using the database would assign To Do's to people and then know what tasks he had handed out to whom. He could view the Calendar and see what any particular person was doing.  To have this set up for multiple staff to access and use, you would have usernames that correspond with the Staff Records. When the "To Do List" opens the script would be customized to filter the currently logged in staff member. Hope this helps. Thanks for using FM Starting Point! Best regards, Calvin Mosiman
