  1. Hi - I'm sure this has been asked and answered before, but I could find it by searching. So I apologize in advance and would appreciate suggestions for resources. I have a solution I've been developing for years which was intended for single user use in a runtime. I'm creating a multiuser version that will be hosted on FM server. I'm looking for information on what to look out for and what changes I need to make to avoid problems in that environment. For instance, I'm already aware of the need to load globals from single record tables with non-global variables. I assume there must be other things like that to be aware of but I haven't found a good resource yet. Thanks for your help. Michael Oh, just to add some details, I expect to have 5-10 users at most.
  2. I'm new to this forum and even newer to FM... so this makes me a beginner but hoping to learn quickly.I've been hoping to find instructions on how to create a master-detail layout, not on the parent table. It seems that with many examples found, the master detail is design to work on the main page, which means when you create a new record, it creates a new field in the portal row and you add the specific name in that field and on the detail side, all data pertaining to the portal row name. I can get this to work with no problem.Where the problem comes in is here...I'm creating a songwriter database. The main opening page is designed to include the song title, artist name and all data pertaining to the song (producer, writer/publisher splits, etc) I call this layout "Song". Each new record will store a new song, artist name, etc...Now, in the Header, I added a Button bar. One of them is labeled "Pitch". The Pitch layout is designed to work with individual song titles or records, coming from the "Song" layout. This Pitch layout will include a left side portal and towards the right, detail info pertaining to each portal row. This is where I'm stuck. I'm not sure how to set this up. Any help would really be appreciated. Thank you.
  3. macOS Sierra Version 10.12.5 trying to install FileMaker Server 14 with Web Server & PHP. I need web publishing enabled. I checked PHP and Yes, install the FileMaker server version of PHP. I get this error. Test web server ( Connection refused I have no idea where to start troubleshooting. I read through https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/docs/14/en/fms14_getting_started.pdf and nothing helped. Please help. Its appreciated.
  4. I have installed FMS16 and FMPA16 locally on my Mac Pro (running El Cap) for testing purposes. The admin console doesn't seem to be showing the correct information. It is always listing connections that are no longer present, even after having restarted the server via command line, removing the file, etc. After uploading a new file to the server, the new file doesn't appear in the admin console, but can be listed via command line. Access also works by web direct, etc. Anyone else having issues with the admin console on FMS16? What did you do about it? My computer just got all the latest available system updates last Friday, so that shouldn't be the problem. Thanks!
  5. Slow container uploading

    Hello we use filemaker server 15 and some macs takes long to upload an image in the container field, it takes about a minute to insert 100kb image.... when using filemaker server 14 it does not happend.... what could be the problem?
  6. Hi all, I recently upgraded my Filemaker Server 13 to Filemaker Server 14. To get the new version to install, I had to downgrade my Java8 from u113 to u67 (separately installing the old Java version, not allowing the FMS installer to install Java itself). I also had to fiddle around to make sure it was running the httpd which comes with FMS and not the one bundled with Mac OS X El Capitan. My question is, am I now save to upgrade Java back to the latest version. I'm not anticipating needing to install FMS14 anytime soon, but does the "Deployment" part of FMS use Java, and if so, is it similar fussy about which version?
  7. Has anyone had the following issue and might have a quick fix. I migrated client files from FM Server 13 residing on Mac Server to FM Server 14 residing on Windows Server. All went very well except one thing, which i would be grateful if someone could help me on. PREVIOUS STATE - The client had his files hosted on OX platform and with FileMaker 13 Server. - There is a container field in the records that would contain pdf files, these are 1 or more pages document files. - When the user dragged the file into the container field it would display as page thumbnail BOTH on Mac and Windows. AFTER THE MIGRATION TO WINDOWS SERVER - files still display thumbnails when dragged on MAC - the files are displaying FILE ICON when dragged into the container on WINDOWS. Tech boards are suggesting that Windows can not insert the file as picture into the FM container field, but there it happened before. Does anyone have any isight on this behaviour, is it documented anywhere? Thank you
  8. Cannot Connect to Server

    Hi All, I have filmmaker server 15 deployed at my office with high speed TWC Static IP address. I've opened up all the ports per filmmaker instructions but I cannot connect from my home network and all of my 8 employees on their own home networks cannot connect either. Any thoughts or possible solutions to try? Thank you!
  9. Hello Is there a way to reduce the speed of a voice reading a text field using the SPEAK script? I'm using the Daniel UK ENGLISH voice Thanks
  10. Serial numbers

    I want to start at 1 for the next quarter, but it is currently 13 days before the end of this quarter. Logically I could start auto-enter serial at -13 and incrememtn by 1. So the first record would be -13, then -12 etc. Doesn't seem to like it. First record is -13, second is -14. Is this a bug, a feature, or known behaviour?
  11. Filtering portal records

    I have a portal that shows records from another table. They are 'available' or not currently assigned records. The problem is that the list is too long. I would like to be able to filter the list by entering characters in a Filter field. The relationship currently looks like this: Available = yes I would like something like: Available = yes and Filter (is a substring of) Productname I can't for the life of me figure out how to do that.
  12. Calculation updates

    I have a look up table of products with parameters such as style, size, colour etc and of course price. In another table I have the items ordered which allows you to choose a style, size, and colour and looks up the price form the products table. I achieve this calculation using a field which contains a concatenated string like this 'style-size-colour' in both tables and a relationship based on this field. I use this relationship to return the price. It works the first time, but when I change one of the parameters the price is not immediately updated. How do I force a refresh?
  13. I have a table called Employees. These are either Current, Freelance, or No Longer Employed. I want a list available to select current employees. I have a filed called Currentcalc which is a 1 if the employee status is current. All I want to do is to go to an unrelated table and be able to select current employees from a lost. I simply cannot get my head around how to filter lists. I have tried every possible combination of settings and cannot understand the logic of filtered lists. This should be so simple but I have now wasted an entire day to it. I cannot find a simple explanation on how this works, anywhere. Can anyone explain to me how drop down lists, based upon a calculation filed work?
  14. Network sharing issue

    Good morning. My client has FMS14 running on a terminal server with about 8 clients using it at any one time from that terminal server. From the reports I am getting back, when they open the solution, they are getting a message that appears to show that the Network Sharing has been enabled. As I understand it, when the solution is hosted on FMS, then the Network Sharing (for peer to peer?) should be disabled, however, even after turning off Network Sharing, it appears to come back again. Why is this? How do I stop it please? The only problem it seems to be causing is the initial error message when the solution is opened. I access the file remotely (not through the TS) and I don't get that message - I'm also the only Mac client if that makes any difference. Any ideas would be appreciated. :-) Greg
  15. I have a couple of sequence scripts configured on our FM14 server (under Windows 2008 R2) and for some reason, the system level scripts after the internal FM scripts no longer launch under the identity I specify in the schedule config. They always launch under System and that's causing access problems. The server has been rebooted and I have tried brand new schedules for the tasks but nothing changes. Anyone seen similar behavior and have a solution? Thanks
  16. Change field in portal row

    I have a FileMaker layout with a portal to another table. The relationship shows all unassigned records (related < 1). On each portal row I have a button which runs a script. The idea is that when you press the button the a value from the main record is copied and pasted into a field in the portal row (and as a result the portal record becomes 'assigned' and is removed from the portal. I have the button running a script and pasting the value from the main record but it is pasting it in the first portal record, not the one whose button was clicked. Is there a simple way of having the value pasted into the portal record where the button was clicked or do I have to store the record number (or something) and paste back to that record?
  17. I had to migrate a Mac OS Mini Server running Mavericks 10.9.5 and Filemaker Server 13 to Filemaker Server 14.0.4 on El Capitan 10.11.6 today. It turned out to be an unpleasant and tiring operation, so I wrote a little manual that hopefully can help and save time for other people running into this situation. Some steps my not be necessary, but the following list describes the road I took, stumbling from one problem to the next. Rest assured that I left out a lot of swearing and three letter words that were also part of the process ;-) Greetings Ernst Backup your databases, stop and de-install any previous Filemaker Server version. The Filemaker 13 de-installer is located in the Extra’s folder on the Filemaker Server 14 installation disk image. Install El Capitan 10.11.6 + updates Do not install OS X server ( yet ) - see the notes at the end of this little manual. Remove the Java version installed with Mac OS - in my case Java 8 update 111. Steps from the Oracle website: In the Terminal window Copy and Paste the commands below: sudo rm -fr /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin sudo rm -fr /Library/PreferencePanes/JavaControlPanel.prefPane sudo rm -fr ~/Library/Application\ Support/Java Install the version required by the 14.0.4 Filemaker Installer: Java 8 update 60 before installing Filemaker. Installer is called: jre-8u60-macosx-x64.dmg After creating an Oracle account and logging in it can be downloaded from: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/ - Scroll all the way down and click Java Archives - Click Java SE 8 - Scroll down to Java SE Runtime Environment 8u60 - Click Accept License Agreement - Download jre-8u60-macosx-x64.dmg The Filemaker installer is supposed to install this Java version by itself, but in my case it appeared to contain the Java 8 update 31, causing a loop within the Filemaker installer, repeating the process of installing the wrong version. Get Filemaker fms_14.0.4.412.dmg. Use the full installer! In my case installing an earlier version and running the updater did not work - the updater to 14.0.4 hung during installation. Filemaker also advises this but unfortunately chose not to put the full installer on their website, so I had to Phone Filemaker support and supply the original sales contract number. After providing these details they mailed a link to the 14.0.4 full installer. Install fms_14.0.4.412.dmg Because I was planning a co-install with OS X Server App I used port 8080 and 8443 in stead of the standard 80 and 443 during the setup. Also I did not enable web publishing and ODBC/JDBC during installation because I desperately wanted to get the normal services working. Do not start Deployment when the installer finished but click Quit in the finishing dialog. Next step is to stop the server process via the terminal, as per Filemaker’s instruction: type or paste sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms in a terminal window, enter and administrator password when required. In my case I had to restart the Mac and do this last step again after a fresh restart, before the FileMaker Server 14.0.4b Software Patch wanted to run without complaining about the Server being running. Run the FileMaker Server 14.0.4b Software Patch from http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/15575 Note that this installer will update your Java version to Java 8 update 66, in my case this went without any hiccups. Log in to the Admin console using the FMS 14 Admin Console.webloc shortcut placed on the Desktop by the installer. Alternatively point your browser to http://localhost:16001 and click Start Admin Console About co-installing with OS X Server version 5.2 I know the true purist warn against this; in this case the server is under a relatively light load, so performance does not seem to be an issue. Getting OS X Server to co-exist with FM Server proofed tricky though. Initially I had OS X Server app installed before trying the last FileMaker Server 14.0.4b Software Patch which caused the installer to hang again. So I had to command-drag to move the Server App from the Applications folder to the Desktop. After authenticating the Mac detects the removal and presumably stops and repatches all services involved. Then the FileMaker Server 14.0.4b Software Patch installed, after which I could put the OS X Server app back, re-login to server, re-enable the services, restart the Mac and finally login to the Filemaker Admin console. Next time I would leave the OS X Server installation as last step; possibly this will be less work.
  18. Hello all. I am running the FMS 14 backup scripts to a custom folder on the same disk as the Filemaker install. There are a number of errors generated. Schedule window Status says "permission denied" Main Status window say "Schedule "Daily" aborted; the destination "filemac:/server HD/fmsbak/" is not writable." Folders ARE created the backup databases but some files are corrupted (although others not) The backup folders do not delete after the schedule number of backups. And only recently I can't change the folder path as nothing happens if I validate or save and to log out I have to revert. Any help with this would be terrific. Thanks
  19. Hi, I'm am using BasicElements BE_ExecuteSystemCommand via PSOS to run different commands and commandline tools for different purposes (PDF and image handling etc.) - and it works perfectly. However some commands needs to be run from an Administrator account or even Domain Administrator account, but FMS uses the NT Authority/System account for running scripts. How do I get around this? Is there anyway to change which account FMS is using?
  20. Hi everybody, Is there someone that have a licence to sell for a filemaker server 15? U can MP Thanks
  21. Hi Gang, long time no see! Anyway, I am attempting to use Insert From Url to pull in some XML data and am having no luck with it. When I use a url such as "https://ipaddress/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-dbnames", I receive the expected result: <fmresultset version="1.0"><error code="0"/><product build="05/08/2015" name="FileMaker Web Publishing Engine" version=""/><datasource database="DBNAMES" date-format="" layout="" table="" time-format="" timestamp-format="" total-count="4"/><metadata><field-definition auto-enter="no" four-digit-year="no" global="no" max-repeat="1" name="DATABASE_NAME" not-empty="yes" numeric-only="no" result="text" time-of-day="no" type="normal"/></metadata><resultset count="4" fetch-size="4"><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>FMServer_Sample</data></field></record><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>LatestUpdates</data></field></record><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>PSoS_Log_CWP</data></field></record><record mod-id="0" record-id="0"><field name="DATABASE_NAME"><data>TEST_XML</data></field></record></resultset></fmresultset> When I attempt to query the TEST_XML file, however, e.g., "https://ipaddress/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=TEST_XML&-layoutnames", nothing is returned. TEST_XML is a simple one-table (called TESTER) file with one field ("id"), one layout ("Testing") and a handful of records. It is set to auto-login as [Guest], which has the [Full Access] privilege and only the fmxml Extended Privilege. The server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard, SP1 and FM Server, with everything enabled in the Admin Console. I am using Advanced 13.0v9 and Pro 13.0v9, though I receive an empty result in FireFox and IE also. Am I missing something obvious?
  22. Creating a script

    Hi all, I am trying to write a script that let me display multiple fields of the same tables and create a button that run that script. for example a button to show the current address and another on to show the previous address, or some thing like that. I don't know if this idea is doable or not. Thanks in advance for your help and advice. I am using filemaker pro 13 Thanks
  23. "This is the first time I'm setting up a script to run on a server with the help of a schedule, so I will probably make a lot of strange mistakes, but how hard can it be? Hard, obviously. :|" I have a script that check for new files in a folder, process them, export some data and move the files to a new destination. It works flawless with the Filemaker Client. On the Server I can't get it to work! I'm using the BE_ListFilesInFolder step. The folder that I want to check is the following (the FMServer User have both read and write privileges on all mentioned folders): C:\FTP\FM\In\ This is outside the server Documents folder, so just to be sure I tried to change it to: C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In\ I get the same error on both. I have tried to use a field as the path as well as hardcoded as well as variables in different combinations: BE_ListFilesInFolder ( System::FMIn Folder ) BE_ListFilesInFolder ( "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Documents\In" ) Set variable($folderpath) and then BE_ListFilesInFolder($folderpath) Same error. I have tried a zillion different ways. With the Client it works. From the server it does not. I GET CRAZY!!! What have I missed? ...or should I just skip the Filemaker Server Schedule and do this with a client instead? Tia, /Andreas [Windows 2012 r2, FM Server v15.0.1.137]
  24.
