Hi All Hopefully you can help me with a problem I am having sending mail for one of my clients. It's driving both him and me completely round the bend! We use the 360Works Mail plugin for sending bulk emails from our database, however I have one client who this doesn't work for. If I log in from my computer and send mails via his account all works fine, however when he does the same from his end, on the script step which creates the new message (EmailCreate) & sets the body (EmailSetBody), he gets the returned error: Missing local name Any idea what this means or what is the cause? I can't find a single clue from 360Works documentation, however some searching online indicates that the email address is missing the first part i.e @something.com, but this is not the case - the full email address is given as a parameter to the EmailCreate function. We're both using FM12, I'm on advanced though. Client is on a PC (XP or 7 I think) & I'm on a mac (mountain lion). Any ideas? And thank you in advance! Kind Regards Vicky Nesbitt
Ashlin posted a topic in Importing & ExportingHi there, am new to Filemaker and these forums. I've moved from working in MS Access and am loving FM so far. Problem: I am using FM as ODBC data-source for MS Word mail merge. I would like the merge source to have data from multiple related tables. In Access this would have just required using a query as the data source. However, FM as ODBC only appears to allow use of tables and not layouts. Is there a way to setup a layout as an ODBC or do I have to create a behemoth table which has all the data I need? Alternatively, am open to any other suggestions. I don't think using Form letters inside FM is suitable as I need to be able to edit comprehensively (Hence using MS Word) before sending.
