Hey, I want to use the same header on all my layouts in FileMaker Pro 15 Advanced but I can't seem to find a way to accomplish it. I read on Google and other forums that there is no way to do it, however the posts I found are all at least a year or two old. Did they add a way to do it in FileMaker 15 or do I still need to duplicate a layout to get the same header on a different one? Thanks in advance, Mike
I have several tables which I want to export to a TSV, but I wish to include a custom header at the top of the actual exported data. This custom header is comprised of the field comment of each field, NOT the field names themselves. Currently in my export script, I am adding the custom header row to the actual data, sorting it to the top, exporting, then deleting it. However, there seems to be a problem when users run the exporter concurrently, and actual data rows are being deleted occasionally instead of the headers. Because I can't figure out how this is happening, I want to eliminate the need to delete records at all in the export script. My new idea is to generate the custom header inside a global variable, use the standard "Export Records" script step, then somehow tack the two together inside filemaker, perhaps with ScriptMaster. There is a problem with the ordering of the columns, as that is determined by the export order when "Export Records" is run, but I am filling a value list with my standard export order and generating the header based on that. I could just concatenate all the rows into a variable and write that to a file as well, but that is much too slow. Any ideas on how I can accomplish this? Is there a faster and/or simpler way to do this than my proposed method?
