  1. Hello, I'm looking for verification that v3 of the Filemaker Pro templates included a template called invoicing and if so, I would like to locate a copy of said template for a project. Any suggestions on where I might find said file if it still is available or exists? I've tried googling to no avail (so far). TIA. Skingjack
  2. Can anyone tell me how or where I might find help recovering an FM3 db? FM does not support anything further back than one generation earlier than the most current version and my client is transitioning from FM3 to FM6. My client still has quotes in FM3 and it went belly up Thursday last week. He does not have a backup and every time you attempt to open the DB an error stating
  3. Using Filemaker 4.1 v1: I have 6 database files being shared on PCs (same version on all) using Windows 98 SE. ONLY one of those 6 shared databases exhibits the following problem and only a new laptop using Windows XP Pro: in every field where the text would normally end, it extends somewhat beyond the border of the field before wrapping to the next line i.e. the cursor appears to be located to the left of where it affects the text, each space (right arrow) width is slightly smaller than each displayed letter or number of text. For about every 6 spaces the cursor moves it only moves past 5 letters in the field. This makes is very difficult to edit the fields. In fact, the "over run" letters stay on the display monitor after going into any number of new "finds"! This problem does not happen with any other user who accesses this database from their machines nor does it happen with any of the other 5 databases when used on the laptop. I only experiences this problem with this one particular shared database. This & all databases on the other machines appear without error. Advice is appreciated.
  4. I don't understand why some fonts are shown only in the mac fonts menu and not in the line popup menu of the document. What difference is there between this two menus? Thanks.
  5. We are running a hosted FP3 database version 3.6 over a TCP/IP windows network. I have one user who cannot access the server based files using shortcuts on his desktop, he must 1st open FP3 then do a file>open>network neighborhood>server1>databases>rest of path blah blah blah. Sometimes this does not work either. Gives the error that "the file cannot be found and is needed for this operation". All other documents can be opened just fine (i.e. Word, Excel....). this is a brand new laptop that works just fine. I custom configured and tested this laptop before giving it too him. I am convinced it is not a hardware problem. I removed all adapters except the network adapter 3Com 10/100 cardbus PCMCIA NIC. I am only running TCP/IP (Win98 2cd edition) and installed FP3 with TCP/IP support option and then added version5 upgrade and version 6 upgrade. Can anyone help me? ------------------ SeanG
  6. I'd like to export the correct formatting of fields that contain italicized words. It's comparable to exporting citations for a bibliography. I'm using FMPro 4.1. The quotation marks will export but nothing else. Ideas?

    Hi, there is my problem. We use 2 file in fmpro3.0 One is the pricing.fp3 and the second one is for quotation.fp3. The quotation and pricing are link so when I write a model number in quotation, the quotation goes in the pricing search the model and write the price and the description in the quotation file. All goes well but when I write a model that not exist in the pricing.fp3 the FMPRO make a DRWatson and close. Thanks for your help anyone anywhere...
  8. Hello everyone, I am having some trouble. This is the situation. I have two databases, one called Profiles(holds the Last Name of a person and some other info) and the other called Records. I want to link these through the web so that when I create a new record in the Profiles database and enter all the data in it, I want the text field that holds the Last Name in the Profiles database to transfer into another text field in the Records database. Essentially, the Records database is almost like a sub-database to the names in the Profiles database. I am ale to do this using buttons, and Input, and Form, but I wondered how I would do it simply using A HREF? The following is the code I used for a page with a button to create a new record in the Records database, after the data in the Profiles had been entered for that person: " <FORM ACTION="FMPro" METHOD="post"> <P><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-db" VALUE="profile.FP3"></P> <P><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-lay" VALUE="Layout #1"></P> <P><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-format" VALUE="newrecord.htm"></P> <P><INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="-RecID" VALUE="[FMP-currentrecid]"></P> <P><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="-findall" VALUE="Create New
  9. I am trying to publish a database I have hosted on a FileMaker Server 3.0 on the web. Has anyone done that sucessfully?
  10. Hi! As a publishers agent, I run a database on filemaker 4 to track orders for books on behalf of my customers. Obviously one order can have more than one book entry. I'm trying to create a merge file in word so that I can send confirmation of orders as an email attachment - however, can only get the first line of any order in the word merge document. The database is relational - ie One file for orders and another for order lines. Any suggestions? David Este
  11. How can I do a search in 14 text fields (A1, A2, A3, etc.), within the same file, without doing 14 requests. The search should return all the records that has, at the least, one matching result. Now to make things more difficult, each field can contain from one to five words.
  12. We use Filemaker Server 3.0 running on NT Server 4.0 SP5. Our existing Filemaker administrator is resigning and we are trying to reassign her privaledges to another admin. Our problem is no matter what we do only the original account has rights to all the Filemaker databases. We assigned NT administrator rights and complete file and share access to another account, yet when he opens Filemaker Pro he cannot set the database to single mode, perform backps, etc and it only works when logged in using the old admin's NT account. Our last resort is to simply rename and reassign the old account but that doesn't get to the root of the issue. I suspect we need to change a setting with the database Can anyone help?
  13. Problem: A user with a PC running WIN 2000, 128MB RAM logs into the network at startup, then launches FM Pro ver 4.1v3. She opens the main database and enters the password, but she then gets a message saying "FileMaker Pro has generated an error message and will shutdown". Here's the curious part: I can log in to the PC network with our administrator password, and FileMaker will run fine! Any thoughts before we either re-install FM, or WIN2k, or both???
  14. I am currently using Filemaker Pro V.4 I need to hook up a second computer in my home to share files. I don't want to upgrade to v.5 To share files I need to install another V.4 on the second machine with a seperate serial number. Can I purchase an old filemaker V. 4 from someone ?
  15. We have Filemaker Pro Server v3.0v4 running on a PowerMac with lots of RAM. Both Windows and Mac users access the database with the v4.0 client (patched to the latest versions) over ethernet. Now, certain of my Windows users occasionally can't access the shared databases. There's no reason to it- Mac users have no difficulty at all. Other Windows users- no problems. But when certain Win98 users try to open FM4 and access certain files (via File->Open->Hosts), they get the hourglass cursor, and wait- often for over 10 minutes. I should add that the database appears immediately in the "Hosts" screen, the delay is when the file is actually being opened. Sometimes the database will finally come up, sometimes you have to give the 3-fingered salute. (whereupon Win98 reports that the Filemaker program was "not responding"). Copying a fresh copy of the "Claris Folder" from another windows machine, thus replacing the current Filemaker installation, does no good at all. I can't see why Filemaker would stop responding on these machines. Any clues? ------------------ ----------------- Nathan Zamprogno Baliset Solutions baliset@zeta.org.au
  16. Is FMP patched to 4.1v3? Is the TCP/IP networking on the computer configured correctly and working?
  17. I'm afraid I have an idiot question, but when you're desparate, idiot quesitons have to be asked. I am currently developing a database in Filemaker Pro v4 for the Mac, and, ultimately, this database will be used on Filemaker Pro v4 for Windows. Whilst it is easy to get the raw material (ie fields and contents) into a Windows version, I am having no success with exporting either the layout or the relationships. What am I doing wrong? regards Brian
  18. I'm trying to import a scheduling database created by a third party into FMP so I can show on the web and have it be interactive. The problem: how to import this data that has been created in this form: Date Bball Wrestling Squash 11/01 H@COR COL@B PR@PE COL@B H@COR D@Y 11/03 D@B COL@PR H@Y I want it to end up in FMP with following fields: Date Sport Matchup How can I do this w/o spending much time preparing my excel database? If it took too long, I'd just retype all by hand, and insist that the schedulers from this point on use my FMP web site to enter. Thanks Bevin
  19. Has anyone encountered concurrency problems (ie., two or more users attempting to edit the same record at the same time) with Filemaker3? I have a problem in a multiuser database which I suspect might be a concurrency issue. It occurs when a script in the main datafile runs a subscript in a related file to search for a particular record and then link the current records in the respective files. The script works as required most of the time. But, occasionally, the record in the related file that ends up being linked to the main record is the wrong one (always record no 1 in the related file.) I checked the usual things like making sure the script goes to the proper layout and that the applicable fields are present etc. Nothing seems amiss. Has anyone else encountered anything like this? Platform: FM 3 with the last available version 3 patch running on about 20 Macintoshes, and FM server version 2 with the last available patch running on a server Mac. Because of costs and the number of machines involved, we don't want to upgrade to version 5 until we have eliminated other plausible causes of the problem.
  20. I want to share some of my databases over TCP/IP through filemaker. Some of these databases are shared with web companion, others are not. These other databases I would like to view in filemaker from a remote machine. The problem is that I am using a single IP address from a cable modem which goes through a router to share that IP with all of the machines. My web servers and everything else gets shared out to the web through port mapping. I cannot find anywhere the port that Filemaker TCP/IP database sharing uses. Anyone know this port number? or numbers? Please help!
  21. I'm brand new to FileMaker and I can't find a solution to this problem. I've looked through the manual and through the help files. I want to be able to subtract the time some one started a task from the time that they finished the task to show the duration of the task. I am currently just subtracting the two and its not working correctly. Is there a formula I can use and if so what is it and where do I type it in. Thanks, Jim
  22. I've attempted to have a page number print in preview mode by following the instructions to click on the layout where I want it and then to go to Edit, Paste Special, Page Number and the double ## appears but doesn't print. What am I missing. Thank you.
  23. It appears to me, correct me if I'm wrong, that the biggest problem with FM is the inability to seperate the interface from the data. I would like to update the layouts without having to take the whole application off line. However, FM won't let me do this. Is there anyway to do a "hot swap" of layouts without having to swap out the entire db?
  24. I am currently running two main servers, Novell Client 32 & Windows NT. FM Server is being run on NT and Paradox made databases on Client 32. Users need to log onto both servers to use FM databases & Paradox databases and need to open them both on their PC's. The problem is that I am getting calls from users stating that the Paradox system keeps locking up and causing FM to crash plus the PC. I have checked the specs of the machines, seems in order and made sure that they are running on 100mpb & TCP/IP. But I cannot find out what the problem is. Has anyone out there experienced this problem? Has anyone got a solution? If so please let me know. Many Thanks MartinC
  25. I'd a text field in all records in FM4. I only can find the record by specifying the text up to a certain character in the string. When I specify it beyond that character, I can't find that record. But other records with same text field can be found. The text field is defined as "text with index if necessary". The text string is "Boc-LPYEGSLLLKLLRAPVEEV-HMP Resin". I can find the record only by specifying up to the 1st "V" i.e. *RAPV* (* wild card cahracter). I can't find the record if I specify up to "E", i.e. *RAPVE*, but I can find all other records with the same fields in the records. I can't figure it out why. Is there anybody can help me on this ? Thanx
