  1. Hello; is there a function or a calculation I can use to Convert between Hijra to Gregorian Date in my FM database?
  2. Hey Everyone We are having this issue with the change of any of this variables IOS 13 FileMaker 18 FileMaker Server 18 FileMaker Go 18 We have a Layout for FileMaker go to upload photos from an iPod Touch or iPhone Pro 11, and when we use a script to take the photo directly from the camera works perfectly, but when we use the another one that has to open the library from the device it will happen either of this 2 things 1. It will duplicate on the mini preview the last "good" picture and when try to maximize the picture nothing shows up
  3. Gents, would you please help me to create a script?
  4. Gents, I have an excel price list with header fields. I want to import it into a newly created FM database. Is it possible to make FM use those header fields instead of me manually creating corresponding fields in FM?
  5. The short video linked below shows a radio button value list that shouldn't work because the 2nd field is an unstored calculation however it does some of the time and others not. I've been noticing this for some considerable time and I'd love to get to the bottom of why. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. https://www.screencast.com/t/7CWCfpqfeP
  6. I am finding that my new install of FM19 is very slow. when I go into manage database I have to wait for the fields to populate for about 30 seconds. Is anyone else getting this slow behavior?

  9. Firstly by telling if it is even possible I have a customer contact database that I use to keep track of clients that use our services on an annual basis. We are event photographers, and we are not guaranteed that a given client will rebook us every year, so I need to keep track of who the current contact is, what we offered them and so on and so forth. When I eventually speak to the contact, I then need to follow up email with a PDF. I have created a layout that is a letter format that contains the fields that has offer details that are specific to them. I want to be ab
  10. I'm still on Filemaker 17 and was surprised when looking at a colleague's computer to see that Filemaker 17 doesn't support Windows Emoji's, and wondering if that's been fixed in Filemaker 18 or 19? I've been holding off on upgrading due to the hassle of remotely installing, and also because other than the While statement, it doesn't seem that FM 18 or 19 have any real benefits, but this might push me over if one of them supports Windows Emoji...
  11. We’re not ready to upgrade our server to 19, but would like to upgrade some clients to 19. I understand that we won’t be able to leverage any of the new functionality of 19, but will there be any issues with accessing a database hosted on FMS18 with FMP19?
  12. With so many amazing new features in the latest FileMaker release, it may have been easy to miss some of the smaller features. In this FileMaker 19 Q&A, we take a moment to look at some miscellaneous new features.

  13. I get the below error every time I call the send mail call. It locks me and the only way out is to kill Filemaker client. I get this error for years now since FM 16 on all the x64 versions. Switch To..., Retry, and X do not work as it keeps looping. Up to now I was able to get around it because I was using the x32 version where the error does not happen. Now I am moving to FM 19 as the FM 16 version has an EOL Oct-2020. The FM 19 version comes only on x64 and I have no way avoiding it anymore. I thought that this will be fixed by now but apparently is not.
  14. Over the years, we've run into a situation where two people try to access the same record at the same time. A message is displayed saying "Name (username) is modifying this record. You cannot use this record until Name (username) is finished." Two responses are offered "Send Message" and "OK". If you click "OK", the message simply comes up again, so as well as being locked out of the record you are effectively locked out of using Filemaker. If you click "Send Message" a dialogue appears headed "Message to Send" with a field enabled for a message to be written. Despite having tri

  17. Apologies if I've put this in the wrong place. My Filemaker solution uses a FM database and an ODBC connection to a MySql database that is used to serve data to a website. I have complete read/write access to the data in the MySql database from inside FM and thus control of data published on the site. I would like the MySql database to be able to access tables in the FM database in the same manner. I have set up an FM ODBC connection to our FM server and that is visible in my local ODBC Manager, have tested the connection and that is good, but I can't see any way in the MyS
  18. Since we can see values from a related table why would we ever need to enter those values into the related table itself, i.e., entering a company name (either via a Lookup (not recommended) or by Insert Calculated Result in Field Options). This video discusses 3 reasons why you would want to do this.
  19. In this video, we add a related value list to the mix allowing users to select a year and see only clients with invoices for that year.
  20. Lookups have been around for ever and they are never going to go away but it's important that you understand the reason they are there and, more importantly, why you shouldn't use them any more
  21. The CentOS FMS19 performs strongly so far; but which ODBC/JDBC driver should I use?
  22. So on FileMaker Server 19 dev preview on Centos, how do I enable XML? I attempted fmsadmin set cwpconfig enablexml=true and CLI indicates all went well, but fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.xml?-dbnames yields forbidden? Thank you
  23. John Mark Osborne and Michael Rocharde are proud to release a special 2 hour episode discussing the release of FileMaker 19 and what it means for Claris, the developer community and ultimately its customers. While, on the surface and at first glance, there doesn't appear to be all that much that is new, a closer look reveals a version that is about to revolutionize the way that solutions are developed. With our regular guest, Marc Larochelle of Productive Computing, we discuss every aspect of the FileMaker 19 release which is new in many ways not least of which is that there will now be increm
