  1. Hi all, I would like to create a page count for a found set of records when I am in preview mode and when I export to PDF ie if a found set of records has 3 pages then the first page would contain a field that reads '1 of 3' Can anyone help with how to achieve this? Any help is much appreciated Thanks Michael
  2. I cannot select inside an input field at a specific character. Clicking on the field works and selects the field, but I then need to use the arrow keys to go to a specific characters. Mouse clicking at a specific characters does nothing. Anyone has experienced this? screen.mov
  3. Hello, I moved fields (and scripts) from one FM file to another one. Now, I have a table to 2 fields that has same function but different names, example: Container1 and Container2 Both have their own attached scripts and calculations. I would like to merge "container2" into "Container1" field so the attached scripts and calculations will also change, but I can't rename it simply to "container1" is there a way to without going through all the scripts and calculations? Thanks
  4. Hi all, I have created a portal in a related table and I want to apply a filter to it so that it only shows the latest versions from a found set of records and to hide the others. There is a related field within the portal called 'scan version' which displays the version number as eg 'v001' 'v002' 'v003' etc I've been hunting around online to find a calculation that fits my needs and have played around with the 'Max' function but to no avail If anyone can give me some pointers that would be awesome, I'm still very new to this and learning so any help is always appreciated!
  5. Hi, I have tried to pass the below JSON data to the API. But it doesn't accept the JSON data due to Square brackets[] in the JSON Key. Is there any solution available to pass the below value? JSONSetElement ( "{}" ; "[Name | Last]" ; "Test" ; JSONString ) We need the output like below. { "[Name | Last]": "Test" } Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi all, I'm a film editor and have started building a FM database to be able to track visual effects shots that go in and out of an editing timeline. I am trying to create a calculation that will enable me to add frames to timecode and get the result back in timecode. At the moment I have a text field called 'Scan TC In' which has the following TC entry 18:59:48:23 (HH:MM:SS:FF) and I need to add 8 frames to it, the timeline runs at 24 frames a second. Does anyone know how I can achieve this? I'm a newbie to FM so any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks Mic
  7. Hello Crew: So during beta, everything worked fine and I was delighted to see FMS 19 for Linux go into the first production release. So we installed Centos 7 anew, put an instance of FMS 19.1.2.234 on it - and it seemed to be running fine. First indication of problems: File upload through the Sharing menu option did not seem to be able to connect to the server. No biggie - so we hard-uploaded into the opt/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Database directory, changed ownership and permissions - and voila - the web interface shows the hosted file just fine.
  8. My new piece on Medium - with an in depth performance analysis between different types of deployment for FileMaker Server. Deployment in a Docker Container on a powerful cloud server comes out as a standout option. It will be fascinating to hear your own experience - does it differ from what my testing reveals? It will also be fascinating to hear from Wim how the results he gets from his new Punisher performance tool compare with what we get with dsBenchmark? Cheers, Nick https://nicklightbody.medium.com/claris-filemaker-server-19-a-performance-test-of-linux-v-windo
  9. I have a regular text field with a height of 20 px in Layout mode. In Browse mode that height is respected. But when I select the field, the height seems to triple and a blue border is added. How do I get rid of this behavior? No doubt it has to do with the stupid Themes thing, but how do I edit that? And is there a way to completely remove the Themes/Styles from a database? This feature has zero usable themes as they are ALL UGLY. I create a nice pro look and copy paste fields, Filemaker Themes/Styles s*ck.
  10. I know the solution is probably very easy but it escapes me. I got this database, which I use to create invoices, year after year, I created a report page where with a neat summary field I get the "lifetime revenues", "lifetime general expenses", "lifetime total taxes" and "lifetime total invoices number", which is handy, but I need to have the same data broken down by year, and I can't figure out how to achieve that. In another post I have been suggested to consolidate the three tables I had (Invoices 2018, Invoices 2019 and Invoices 2020) into a single table (Invoices) and then use a "s
  11. I have a calculation that goes like that, I input a number on "Base Imponibile" (say 100), it adds 15% (it gets me 115), it then calculates 4% to the previous result (115) and it gets me 4,60, I then add 2 and the total is 121,60 which is perfect. And that's the part that works just fine. But I then want to make a reverse calculation, where I input the expected result of Total Calculation and tells me all the other values and here it's where things go awry. I'm attaching the initial calculation that works as a reference and the reverse calculation which doesn't work as an exam
  12. I'm not even sure to describe under which category my specific problems fall into, I can only advance some hypothesys, so I'll just describe it and let the wisdom of others guide me. I have a DB with several tables, I use them to make invoices. With every invoice I input the desired price and it adds automatically 19% taxes and produces a neat invoice which I can print, these three tables are called: Invoices 2018 Invoices 2019 Invoices 2020 Now on to my problem. I wanted to create a forth table where from every previously listed table it would calculate the total revenue of
  13. I just moved form 18 to 19. In FMP 18 I had a folder in my applications folder that was called “FileMaker Pro 18 Advanced”. It contained: FMPA Read Me (English).pdf FMPA Acknowledgements.pdf FMI Runtime Resources FileMaker Pro 18 Advanced Extensions English Extras After upgrading to 19 IO do not see that 19 has the same folder. Is this a problem? What to do? Any tips or ideas?
  14. Guys, there is a task, to establish work between FileMaker Server v19 and clients FMS Pro & Go. What is the challenge? 1. On a new computer, Windows 10 is installed, then a virtual machine, and on a virtual machine Microsoft Windows Server 19, and on this server has installed FileMaker Server v19. To my mind - Frankenstein)))) The installation was completely done by me. We set a task, completed it ... but ... 2. To the admin panel - I have access through local host. In the admin panel on the main page I see all the data as well as the IP that the server has. The installation
  15. 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 th
  16. Hi all, I installed CentOS 7 (minimal) on a Mac Mini 6,2 Server model with Dual HD (250 GB SSD), got FMS 19 running on it, all was well. But if I try to reboot it or restart it the power light comes on but the OS doesn't appear to startup. I thought it was a fluke so I reinstalled everything from scratch, had everything running nicely again, held my breath while I did a reboot ... and the same thing happened. If I connect a monitor to it after a reboot attempt it's blank, i.e., no Terminal, nothing. It doesn't show up on my network at all. Is there something in particular I
  17. Under Mojave, my version of Filemaker was funky but more or less functional. My recent upgrade to Catalina put a stake thru its heart. I came here after and hour of reading endless sales pitches on the website, 20 minutes waiting on the phone for sales and another 20 in the chat jail with CalrisBot, also awaiting someone with a heartbeat. I'm sold, I want the product but I'm getting a bad feeling. I was an advanced user in the past with Filemaker Pro 11 but my work took me away from database paying work and although my work is now more involved with research and activisim, I'd l
  18. Is there a way to change my coding of scripts so that so-called scripting errors don't show up in server logs when a scheduled script is executed on FM Server? I get dozens of such errors for each daily execution, and Using a Set Error Capture [On] script step doesn't seem to make a difference as to whether the "errors" show up in the server log. The kinds of error codes that do show up (101, 401) don't seem to me to be be the result of scripting errors at all. Rather, they are part of ordinary operations (e.g., testing to see whether to stop looping by checking whether a record exists in a fo
  19. My script in a hosted file needs to export records as pdf into the user Downloads folder, needs to run under Mac and Windows, so I set the variable $path_filename to: Case ( Get ( SystemPlatform ) = 1; "filemac:"; Get ( SystemPlatform ) = -2; "filewin:"; "file:" ) & Substitute (Get (DocumentsPath); "Documents"; "Downloads" ) & "file.pdf" And then: Save Records as PDF [With dialog: Off; $path_filename ; Records being browsed ; Create folders: Off] The script it works in Mac but not in Windows: I get an 800 Error and a message warning that it can't create the file.
  20. As there isn't a thread about this I thought I'd post about this annoying bug as it affected me and I thought I had a corrupt db. The issue seems to be that when editing layouts with certain summary parts in FileMaker 19.1.2 it changes the way that the layout is configured, so that a DDR created in FileMaker 18+ (at least) crashes FileMaker Pro and fails to create the DDR. Some points from my testing: Creating a DDR without selecting 'Layouts' works fine. 'Save a Copy as XML' works fine. It seems that running Recovery or compact/repair in 19.1.2 also introduces th
  21. I have a small Filemaker Member's database (less than 1,200) with some 650 existing members but I am not the Membership Secretary. The Membership Secretary uses Excel to record who joins and resigns, and each time there is a change in membership (joining or leaving) the Excel file on Dropbox is updated and I am notified. I therefore have to import that data into my Filemaker Members database each time there is a change to the members (new member, change in personal detail or resigned member). However I am in control over the data of the existing members who also join our web membership

  23. I need to import a large amount of data from excel spread sheets into FM19. Is there a way to create a custom import order of field so it will be easy to match the source fields with the target fields. ( I know there is an "arrange by" -custom order) option but that is not a fast enough way The excel spread sheet (source fields) will not be in the same order as the Filemaker File (Target Fields) I often spend a lot of time matching up the source field and the target field and I am looking for a more time efficient way
  24. I know that peer to peer sharing has been deprecated. I also know that it still works on my network between two computers. My client has a two-person shop and has been doing peer to peer for years. He wants to upgrade from an old version of FileMaker to 19 because he is getting new computers. He has been hit hard by events this year so he wants to spend the minimum amount. My versions of 19 are part of a volume license, so I don't know if p2p sharing is only working because of that. Would it work with two or three individual licenses of 19?
  25. Hi, My issue is that my customer layout has a script trigger on LayOutEnter that sorts my customers portal list by "Active" customers, but when I do a go to related record from another table say from quotes or any other the customer layout does not load that customer or show my related customer because the OnLayoutEnter script trigger changes it, I would like it to go to the related customer and also sort it by "Active" on the list. Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks, Pio
