  1. When I start Filemaker and go to my hosts favorites I see icons of all my favorite files. The names of some of the files are longer than the icon line and I have files named the same except for the end which says 2021 or 2022 etc. I can't see that year so they all look the same. I was looking to see if I can change it from icons to a list but don't see where. There is an option when looking at the hosts files. Is there a way to do it?
  2. I have some graphic pictures on some of my layouts. When you click on them you can resize them. I got a new jpg file and when I want to put it on the layout it says it has to make the page larger but when it inserts it I can't amke it smaller. It's one large picture. How do I make the jpg file smaller to fit properly on a layout? Tha handles just don't come up. TIA. I put it on a separste new blank layout and was able to make it smaller. It's a shame you can tell it not to enlarge your layout and just make it smaller the first time. Anyway, I got it. Thanks.
  3. Good day all, Issue - I have created the file Radio.fmp12, stored in the same networked location as my other filemaker files. (See attached 'Filemaker Files.png'). I am however unable to open this file using a script as have previous done with my other files. When I open the Hosts window, all my other programs are displayed except for Radios.fmp12. (See attached 'Hosts.png') I attempted to open the file directly via its network path and filemaker alerted me that the file could not be found (See attached 'filepath.png') Please forgive me if i am missing something but i can open the file directly from the directory so i am baffled as to why the file cannot be found. Any help would be appreciated as I am somewhat of a beginner with Filemaker. Thank you in advance Tom
  4. FM18P: What is best practice when it comes to importing data using JSON / ION? I usually use XSLT and FMPXMLRESULT for import, is there a similar way to do these imports of records into FileMaker? FM19S consideration: I guess the simplest way is to write something in ECMA or Swift that outputs the portable array as FMPXMLRESULT? As pr example curl -kL https://api.domain.tld > /opt/local/usecaseION2FMPXMLRESULT > /opt/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Documents/usecase.$(date).fmpxmlresult.xml But then again FileMaker 19 Server does not allow for XML imports?
  5. I have been running on 2 copies of the same license in my house, in the mean time I bought a 5 user VLA, how can I change the license in FileMaker 18?, when the trial expires I can simply click Browse and click on the cert file that came with the VLA.
  6. Similar to a previous post but different. My portal contains records where a musician (MusicianID) may have multiple entries based on participation on a song (SongID). My goal is for the song count (circled) to show how many songs this musician has 'touched' regardless of the role or involvement. In order words, in this example, the song "For Good" appears twice because the musician has two records for this song in the portal - one for Cover Artist and one for Comp/Lyricist. However, the song "For Good" should only get counted once in the summary field. The song count field is a summary field =Count of SongID in the related table. I'm sure this is a fairly simple exercise, but I'm going in circles.
  7. First, I appreciate any help I can get as this project has been evolving over two years and, as these kinds of projects to, has become more involved and complicated over that time. I've posted related questions, but exploring other parts of my project. As I'm not a programmer, but a sort of user nerd, my inquisitive mind wants to learn, but sometimes simple concepts elude me. Feedback, both on the specific goal at hand as well as the project overall is always appreciated. Performers is one piece of a much larger project, but I'm trying to enhance the project and working on a piece at a time. BACKGROUND I'm sharing the entire project layout to provide some insight into how the parts fit together. The application is a booking management tool for performers, consisting is several tables as shown: Again my focus right now is the Performers table and how to use it in relation to the Gigs (and Gigs~Songs_Join) tables. There is a Gigs layout which is the hub for performances by one or more Performers. On that layout is summary information about a gig and a portal which shows which songs were performed and in what order (Set & Slot fields). The portal also includes a Performer Name. The assumption at this point is that up to 4 performers will do a given gig. This might change in the future, and could impact the below goals. Gigs~Songs_JOIN is a connecting table for Gigs, Performers, Songbook, Venues, Musicians, etc. Performers is a table of singers and includes fields for a serialized SingerID, name, area of speciality (Tenor, Baritone, etc.), etc., and additional fields for combinations of the same performers including: Multi: checkbox-indicates this record is more than one performer PerformerName: calculated based on Multi: if NOT Multi, show performers Name, if Multi, show MultiName (below) Type: value list-is this a duet, trio, quarter, all, etc. MultiName: the description of this record (i.e., Duet-Clayton/Vicky) Other summary fields include: Total Gigs: count of gigs in which this person has performed Total Songs: count of songs this person has performed GigID: match field to Gigs~Songs_Join GOAL I have two goals, one related to the other. First, if the Performer record is checked Multi, I want to "attach" or "associate" individual singer(s) to the record (i.e., show what people are "included" in the MultiName). For example, MultiName=Duet-Clayton/Vicky, I want to show that Clayton and Vicky (each in separate records) are part of Duet-Clayton/Vicky. Second, ultimately on the Gigs layout, I want to show which Performer sang which song (currently works in the portal), but more importantly, show variable summary information (goal layout below) which changes for each Gig as to each Performer, how many songs they sang and the total amount of time they sang. The catch is, in the summary I don't want to show the Multi records, but instead increment individual singers. So, in the summary info with related portal records in the example below, rather than showing Clayton sang one song, Vicky sang one song and Duet:Clayton/Vicky sang one song, I want to show Clayton sang 2 songs and Vicky sang 2 songs. In summary info, Duet:Clayton/Vicky wouldn't appear. In other words, the summary would show how much time each person was singing. In the summary block of the Gig's layout, each of the above sets is a one-row portal filtered by set. I want to have the SINGER1,2,3,4 replaced with the actual Performer's name, and each band/portal show summary info for the appropriate singer. Here is my relationship graph:
  8. For FileMaker hosted solution does anyone use $$VARIABLE for external data source? I'm able to make $$VARIABLE="file:filename" work, however $$VARIABLE="fmnet:/host/filename" does not. In my case this would be $$FM16S00CONTACT="fm16s00.domain.tld/contact" and $$FM18S00CONTACT="fm18s00.domain.tld/contact" This now works, however it's unclear to me what triggered this working. I have a startup script that sets the variables. I have configure the External Data Source with $$FM16S00CONTACT, and this works, however adding another data source does not work for now, I tried quitting FileMaker and relaunch.
  9. I just migrated our FileMaker Server from a Mac Mini running MacOS High Sierra and FMS 17 to a Mac Mini running MacOS Catalina and FMS 18. Everything went well except getting FMS to backup to an external Hard Drive. I simply unplugged the External HD from the previous server and plugged it into the new server. It mounts no problem. I gave "fmserver" "Read & Write" access to the drive AND the folders on the drive it needs access to. I can read and write by dragging files onto the drive, but when I try to enter that Default Backup Folder Path under Configuration>Folders in FMS Admin Console I am told that "The path is not valid.". I used the exact same path as was used on the previous FMS. I even went so far as to set the permissions on the drive and folders to allow "everyone" "Read & Write" access. The only thing that I can think of that might be the issue is that the internal hard drive on which FMS is installed is formatted using APFS and the external hd is formatted using Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Before I go either reformatting the internal drive as Mac OS Extended OR the external as APFS, I wanted to see what the community thought. So I'm posting here. Am I on the right track here? Is it because of the difference in formatting of the drives? If so, which format would you recommend.....I'm leaning towards Mac OS Extended? If not, I'm open to any and all thoughts.
  10. I have a client that has been using a send email script step that brings up the outlook email client on the desktop. This as worked for years no problem. It has stopped work on 3 of 35 computers within the last two weeks. I talked with there IT personal and they have assured me that no updates have happened. The actual error is - Microsoft Office Outlook Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client. I have double checked with system default and Outlook's settings. Both are set to default. The client is using the latest version of office 360's and the latest version of FileMaker 18 advance. Both 64bit. Any suggestions are welcome.
  11. Is there a way to query CWP using FMPXMLRESULT as payload to create new records in FileMaker? Goal is to be able to insert records from command line using curl from FMPXMLRESULT files to avoid a somewhat clunky query from FileMaker XML import. I tried the following: cd /tmp/ curl -X POST -kL -o /tmp/findany.fmpxmresult.xml "user:pass@127.0.0.1/fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.xml?-db=PushTest&-lay=Table&-findany" curl -X POST -kL --data @findany.fmpxmlresult.xml "user:pass@127.0.0.1/fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.xml?-db=PushTest&-lay=Table&-new" A new record is created, however the payload is ignored. Payload below FTR <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE FMPXMLRESULT PUBLIC "-//FMI//DTD FMPXMLRESULT//EN" "http://127.0.0.1/fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.dtd"> <FMPXMLRESULT xmlns="http://www.filemaker.com/fmpxmlresult"> <ERRORCODE>0</ERRORCODE> <PRODUCT BUILD="03/16/20" NAME="FileMaker Web Publishing Engine" VERSION="18.0.4.428"></PRODUCT> <DATABASE DATEFORMAT="MM/dd/yyyy" LAYOUT="Table" NAME="PushTest" RECORDS="17" TIMEFORMAT="HH:mm:ss"></DATABASE> <METADATA> <FIELD EMPTYOK="YES" MAXREPEAT="1" NAME="name" TYPE="TEXT"></FIELD> <FIELD EMPTYOK="YES" MAXREPEAT="1" NAME="number" TYPE="NUMBER"></FIELD> <FIELD EMPTYOK="YES" MAXREPEAT="1" NAME="date" TYPE="DATE"></FIELD> <FIELD EMPTYOK="YES" MAXREPEAT="1" NAME="timestamp" TYPE="TIMESTAMP"></FIELD> <FIELD EMPTYOK="YES" MAXREPEAT="1" NAME="time" TYPE="TIME"></FIELD> <FIELD EMPTYOK="YES" MAXREPEAT="1" NAME="_global" TYPE="TEXT"></FIELD> </METADATA> <RESULTSET FOUND="1"> <ROW MODID="13" RECORDID="24"> <COL> <DATA>Sweet</DATA> </COL> <COL> <DATA>667</DATA> </COL> <COL> <DATA>06/05/2020</DATA> </COL> <COL> <DATA></DATA> </COL> <COL> <DATA>10:44:15</DATA> </COL> <COL> <DATA></DATA> </COL> </ROW> </RESULTSET> </FMPXMLRESULT> If I simply put the parameters after the "?" in the payload file it works, however INSERTing the actual FMPXMLRESULT would be desirable. curl -X POST -kL --data @/tmp/GETlike.txt "user:pass@127.0.0.1/fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.xml" Where /tmp/Getlike.txt contains -dbnames as pr example returns expected list of database names.
  12. Hi All, I would like to find solve my issue, as mentioned on the topic of how can find more than fields like serial No. or Code by IOS camera. please find below the script. thank in advance for any help or support
  13. I'm having a problem getting BE_SMTPsend to successfully send an email with an attachment. No problem sending without an attachment, but when I add an attachment, I get an error 2 (not sure exactly what that means, but without the attachment, no error) These are the argument strings with and without attachments: I have tried both relative and direct file paths for the variable $attachment. Examples are: Both of them return an error code of 2. Since the 'send' without an attachment works, all the values of the fields/variables other than $attachment must be valid. Can anyone offer a suggestion as to what might be going on and what I might try to resolve this?
  14. Hi All, As per mentioned on topic, in fact i would like to create icon ex. hour in case rigging guard the insert time.
  15. Hi, I'm trying to make a subsummary report with data from the current table and a related table. I never get to display the correct totals for the related table, and would therefore appreciate your help. First I'll try to explain the workflow: I have two tables called 'Voorraad_uit' (= outgoing stock) and 'Voorraad_in' (= incoming stock) which are related by delivery number. Data is first entered in 'Voorraad_in' (= incoming stock) and then related records are created in 'Voorraad_uit' when an incoming stock item is partly or completely shipped. This second table contains mainly the outgoing amount and a unique outgoing delivery ID. As a consequence, one record in table 'Voorraad_in' (= incoming stock) can have one ore more related records in 'Voorraad_uit' (=outgoing stock). I want to make a subsummary report showing the total amount of incoming and outgoing units per product(name) by using the following layout structure: I tried two scenarios which each give me a part of the desired result. when I base the layout on 'Voorraad_in' (=incoming stock): I get the right totals for incoming deliveries I get all the incoming deliveries listed (also those without outgoing delivery) Body part 3 (see above) only shows one row also when there are more than one related outgoing transactions I get the wrong totals for outgoing deliveries (only based on one record) when I base the layout on 'Voorraad_uit' (=outgoing stock): I get the wrong totals for incoming deliveries I don't get all the incoming deliveries listed (only those with outgoing delivery) Body part 3 (see above) shows all the related outgoing transactions I get the right totals for outgoing deliveries Main goal is having the right totals for both incoming and outgoing deliveries.. My layout is sorted ascending by (in mentioned order) productname, incoming delivery number and outgoing delivery number. The totals are calculated by using summary fields. I hope I'm on the right track and that the desired result is possible.. your help is much appreciated! Thanks in advance for your help. Regards, Solvax
  16. Hello, We run several FMS18 instances on Mac OSX machines. Randomly, more often on Fri / Sat / Sun, Filemaker server will shut down and disconnect all clients - curiously always at the same time, around 11:55 PM - , and I am unable to restart it from the command line and the web admin drops offline. The only way to bring it back to life is to reboot the entire machine. Is there any scheduled update job at 11:55 PM that I should be aware of that would cause this behavior?
  17. Security Challenge when signing on to Paypal through Filemaker pro 18 web viewer. I see the text "Security Challenge" but nothing else shows up... all is invisible, making it impossible to solve the security challenge and sign in.... Mac Pro..OS High Sierra 10.13 ....running Filemaker 18 . I am having Java script issues I am assuming. Has anyone else had this similar issue and solved it? Thank you in advance Steve

  19. Hi there, I attach a sample database producing a Gantt chart for each day of the month supplied by directimpactsolutions.com Works brilliantly. However, I need to produce the same effect but for each calendar quarter (Q1 = Jan, Feb, March; Q2 = April, May, June; Q3 = July, Aug, Sept; Q4 = Oct, Nov, Dec). Can anyone advise on how to change this to produce something similar to the spreadsheet attached (used for display purposes only)? Thank you Gantt by Qtrs.xls Gantt Chart (unlocked).fmp12
  20. I have a script that distributes a quantity across various number fields using a "set field" script step. It is possible for the number being distributed to be zero. When I run the script with debugger, it puts zeroes in the number fields as expected. But if I run the script without debugger, it enters zeroes as null (blank). I have absolutely no idea why! I've tried modifying the script to specify the value with GetAsNumber and I've even tried adding to the Case statement (which determines the portion of the value to be distributed) that if the value to enter is not greater than zero to just enter a zero. Still makes the field blank. 99% of the time but not 100% of the time. I've checked to make sure all fields are set to be number fields. I've verified this happens for me in both FMP 18 and FMP 19 on two different Windows machines. For my use case there is a difference between a blank and a zero so it must be correct. Sometimes the field is legitimately empty. What should I be checking?
  21. I have a couple of related basic questions that I couldn't find direct answers to anywhere. First, is it possible to store my photos and videos in an Amazon AWS S3 bucket or CloudFront and enter the path to those in a container field on my local database? If so, what does the path look like (special prefix, etc)? Next, how can I easily search for records that have missing photos or videos in these container fields? I have tried VerifyContainer and IsEmpty, but I can't get anything to work! Thanks!
  22. have built a banking application essentially containing Accounts with a link to transactions. I like to see the transactions associated to each account in Date order descending, so they show most recent transactions at the top I want to see the current balance/running total beside each each transaction for which i use a Summary field, In the examples shown in the image - if the transactions are sorted in Date Ascending order then the running totals are correct; but if they are sorted in Descending order (which is what I want), then the running totals are meaning less to me (even if correct to Filemaker) as the Summary total seems to start at the top and work down
  23. Hi, I'm using text in my delivery slip layout through a lookup field and want to remove text if "RO#" text is in the field example: VS-321 The Severed Arm: Blu-Ray RO# 52975 i want to remove everything starting with "RO#" if the field contains it, I know this can be done using LeftWords or RightWords but I can't get it done, if anyone can help it would be much appreciated. Thanks. Pio
  24. As per mentioned in topic ,I would create script help me to make" - " between number for Emirates ID include 15 like ... 783-1986-1234567-9 Thanks alot for any help....
  25. It's been a while since I developed a performance/singer set list application in FM18 and am revisiting it. I don't work in FM enough make my desired changes on my own, so asking for some help or directions. Essentially I have several related tables that grab info into a join (Gigs~Songs_Join) table. Tables include: Gigs: Date/time, venue, producer, etc. I Songbook: song title, duration, keys, genre, lyrics, etc. Musicians: used in Songbook to include original artist, lyricist, composer, etc. Venues: address, contact for venue, etc., used in Gigs above The attached snapshot is of the existing layout. When this was originally created, there were just two of us performing, so I had a Singer value list created which included Clayton, Vicky and duet (both of us). The "Set List Summary & Counts" section of the layout (circled) is done with summary counts and the headings (Set, Songs, Duration, Clayton, Vicky, Duet) are just text on the layout. Each row in the section is a portal to the same layout (Gigs~Songs_Join) filtered for the Set number at the bottom. The assumption is that a max of 4 sets would be performed, thus four rows. The bottom row in the section shows how many sets, songs, duration, and counts of songs by singer. We now have additional singers, so I'd like the section to be more dynamic to account for multiple people. Recognizing a practical limit of how big this section can be, and assuming there never to be more than four singers, I'd like to heading in the section to be dynamically created and provide the same info as currently displayed. I edited the Singer value list to include various combinations of people and realized that's not going to work for my goal. I think what I want is some kind of dynamic field(s) to populate the header row. In the case of duets (i.e., Clayton & Vicky), rather than show that as a duet for the purpose of the summary section, I'd like to increment Clayton and Vicky's counts. So if Clayton sings 3 songs, Vicky sings 4 songs, and they sing 3 duets together, Clayton's count would be 6 and Vicky's count would be 7. The Duet column would go away. Also, if Lanny and Ella perform in a gig, they would (dynamically) appear in the section, with solo and duet counts handled the same way. I hope this is clear enough to provide some background, and appreciate any help given!
