  1. We have a layout that has multiple tab panels, I want to add a field in the same place in all the tab panels at once without clicking on each panel. It's probably simple but I can't seem to figure it out. Thank you for your help in advance! Caroline
  2. In list view I want to be able to "grab" an object so I can move the record up or down in the found set. Is there a way to do this? It would be just like how an item on an list in an iPhone gets moved up or down. For example, on a play list in Music, I can change the order of songs to be played. Also, I would like to have this capability when I move my solution over to FileMaker Go Thanks!
  3. Hi everybody, I recently amended a db from an old Lynda course, controlling shore excursions for river cruise ships. For my limited expertise (I am still a rookie at the very best) the construction is somewhat complex as there is many vessels, different routes, different charterers and consequently different shore excursion programs and prices. In some cases the shore excursion program of different vessels and operators is similar but not the same and so on. I have 7 different tables partly related (pls see graph attached): For every journey ::customers and ::trip
  4. Hi All, I need to copy one field only from one layout (+- 200 records) and past all those records from that field into another layout. I have tried a few commands but does not produce the required result. Please could you advise on a script?
  5. Hi there, I have a topic that can take the chosen value in a vertical radio buttons list. But some values in this list have a description so long that it can not be displayed on one line. So I need a "return to line" in the list of radio buttons. (see attached photo) How to do ? Thank you for your wise advice. V!ncent
  6. Hi There, I’m pretty new with using Filemaker, but still I built a solution that fits pretty all my needs (for now…) I’m still experiencing one big problem with my solution for which I would need help. Here’s the context : I run a little company. We receive financial reports every quarter. All quarterly reports ( Excel file or csv file) have the exact same form. I then created a layout based on the table created when importing the csv that works properly. My need: as I’m to receive a new financial report on next quarters (Q12018, Q22018, Q32018 etc.), I would lik
  7. I'd get some problems with date formats after installing FMS 15, and I'm trying to solve it by importing to a clone of the original database. But two tables has no layouts and I can't find a way to import these tables without making a layout in the clone or adding a table when importing. The last seems to be the simplest, but how will the relationships behave?
  8. How can I extract content from sub summary layout objects using? https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/index.html#page/FMP_Help/getlayoutobjectattribute.html I'm able to grab the content from the first subsummary, not the remaining however. The following: set field( output; GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'header', 'content' ) & GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'row', 'content' ) & GetLayoutObjectAttribute( 'footer', 'content' ) ) works fine, the bad thing is that only row 1 finds its way to the output-field.
  9. I have a layout for printing on a letterhead and have inserted an image file as the Background Image to serve as the letterhead. Printing and Save to PDF work as expected, but for the life of me I cannot get the background image to display correctly in Preview mode. Not displaying correctly in Preview mode is not terrible except, when the client does a print preview and it doesn't line up, there will be questions...even though it print correctly. Basically, it looks like the background image has a pre-determined padding applied to it at the top, but all parts and objects are set to
  10. I'm using some script to direct users to different layouts when the access my database via WebDirect. At the moment all users are directed to one of two layouts using the following #t ( Case ( APP__Application::Type = "Long" ; "Application Detail WEB" ; "Application Detail Rapid WEB" ) ) What I actually need to happen is that when a "reviewer" logs in they are directed to "Application Detail Review WEB" for everyone else the above code is correct. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Layout sharing?

    Hello, I would like to ask question for which I didn't find answer. I have several filemaker dbs which differs only by data entered. All tables and fields are same. My question is if it's somehow possible share layout design across all those databases because occasionally I need to modify that layout. Change it in all dbs could be time consuming. Of course I can have empty "design db" where I could re-import data after layout change but again it could be time consuming too. Also I'm wondering if is possible to use field name (in layout) without any table name and table would be used
  12. I generate an invoice by a report. The work is totalled and then VAT/GST is calculated and the total work + GST = the invoice value. These 3 fields appear in a trailing grand summary. One above thew other above the other: Total Work GST Total this invoice Depending upon the number of items in the invoice the invoice may have more than one page. Again depending on the precise number of items in the invoice I can finish up having 2 of the 3 summary fields on one page and the remaining one on another page. I would like to be able to print the invoice knowing tha
  13. Greetings and thanks for giving this a look! I am rebuilding a client's database that was done formerly in PHP. I'm now using FM 16 Pro Advanced. There is one print layout I'm having trouble recreating. There are a number of data fields the realtors fill out...some get filled in, other times some don't. In addition it needs to print the name of the data field then the data itself, so for instance "Construction Stick Built". I've figured out how to go through and print only the fields (and their labels) that have data. The issue I have is with the spacing in the columns. In the at
  14. 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
  15. Hello, I am not sure if this is a tip, or if it is already known. Anyway it has a practical value for me so I thought I post it. Sometimes I need to present data in a layout with several sub-summary parts and usually no body parts I find it good interface, to give the user the ability to click on the only visible sub-summary part and reveal the next part in the hierarchy, and so on... Thus expanding and collapsing the list by clicking on the headers. From what I read in the forums the standard technique for this is to have a global variable to st
  16. I've read through the previous posts on things not sliding left properly and I've tried all of the known fixes, and I'm still stumped. Here's my problem: I'm trying to get a mailing label layout to display a comma and then any suffix that may follow a person's name (such as Ph.D, PE, MSCE, etc.), but if there is no suffix, then I do not want the comma to display. Should be a piece of cake, right?! Ummm...Nope! I have fields for prefix (Dr., Ms., Mr., etc.), first name, last name, and suffix. I first added a calculation field to combine the prefix, first name, and last name: = Pr
  17. Hi There, I am creating a Filemaker Data base to help me with my work flow. I would like to create A4 Layout but I can't find an easy option how to find it on FMP 13. I can't find an easy way to create a template with size selection for Header - Body & footer and make sure that it will be printed on A4 Size. Does anyone can help? Many thanks, Mari
  18. Hi from a relative newbie, I have a FMP 13 file that works fine on some computers (both Windows and Mac) but on one Mac computer it works only partially. Several of the layouts work fine, but one layout is "frozen" and does not permit entry in any of the fields. Is there something in the Mac OS that could "lock out" a particular layout, but leave all others normally functional? Should I re-install FMP 13? (I'm not sure how to do that on a Mac. I'm mostly a Windows worker.) Any help or insight would be welcome. Thanks, Tom
  19. As you know, FileMaker 14 included a new widely used feature: button bars. No need to say why they're awesome, but you've probably noticed it wasn't that easy if you wanted to create a lot of similar buttons, or convert your old button objects into button bars. Well, these are not issues anymore, thank's to Federico Basmadyian's ButtonBarTool, available here.
  20. We recently bought an Evolysis Card Printer, which prints Front and Back of the card automatically. (Current Situation: We are using a Corel Draw template, the front is on page 1, while the back side is on page 2.. when we want to print, we simply select page 1 and 2 and the printer prints the ID Card front and Back automatically) However, with filemaker, we print the front and then inserts the card back to the printer so as to print the back side. Thus, the layout design of our database has the Front Side on one layout, and then the Back side on another layout. With this n
  21. Hi All, I've been away from FileMaker for a while and just recently came back for a personal project. This means I'm using FM 11, which is pretty old now... Anyway! I have a layout with a picture as a background and I'd like to have a graphic slide up based on the text merge field above it, but it doesn't want to slide because of the graphic it's sitting on. Is there a way to have an object ignore a background object for sliding?
  22. I recently created a CRM that utilizes a single layout for all functions and features. You can view a 5 minute demo video of it here: There is a second shorter video that demonstrates some extreme automation made possible with the CRM. You can view it here: Let me know what you think! Cheers, Gary
  23. Hi all After moving to FMP advanced 13 I still don't know how to automatically add a new field in the current layout I work on. Before it was simple but now I always need to drag the icon into the layout in Layout mode. Is there a way to tell the app to ALWAYS add new fileds to the current layout Thanks a lot
  24. Hi, I'm having some difficulties with my invoice-system. When having multiple pages on print, I want to have my Trailing Grand Summary on a fixed spot. (not trailing) Is there a possibility to have this result? If I would place my fields in the footer, they will show on every page, what is not the intention. Have you fixed this one before OR do you have a solution at hand? Thanks in advance!
  25. Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, new to FileMaker and unsure of how to articulate what I'm trying to achieve. I am trying to reorganize a database using FileMaker. My client's work is literary, and wants to be able to sort agents/editors by their publishing house/imprint. I am using the Personnel Files starter solution, as it comes with some of the features I'm looking for, particularly the "Personnel List". A quick summary of relationships: Publishing Houses [House] are parent companies. Sometimes they do their own publishing, but it's often left to children companies, or Im
