  1. FMP18 asking for password to open file, but FMP16 does not ask for password to open same file. Both have same user name in preferences. I don't know the password. Starting with FMP12, I have not had a need to use password protected files, and don't know how to resolve this problem.
  2. I have a table that we are going to use to create a users password and store some information in. I would simply like to take the first for digits of the user's last name and add that onto a word to create their password. I have been searching and can't seem to find a way of doing this? The data column that has the user's name has both their First and Last name in it. So simply put. John Smith would have a password of smitWelcome1! How can this be done?? And thanks a lot for your help!
  3. A little background I have a DB which keeps users logins/passwords for a business so they have all their login information for everything at work. My Issue I need the user to be able to click a button that creates a random password and places it into the password field when the button is clicked. I am making a button like this for each sections password field. I know I need to make a calculation, I have made these types of scripts before. However, how do I get to a calculation to perform this action with a button in filemaker? I am sure this is so obvious I will slap myself but
  4. Hello - I opened a very simple file I have been using for years (originated as v12 now 15) and it presented me with a password window. It is a simple index card file containing study material and it has never ever been password protected. I tried with my computer account info and it did not work. Admin-admin or blank-blank ditto. Again, it has never been password protected as it had no reason to be. Fortunately I could restore it from a backup drive, of course it was not password protected and it opened without a hitch. How could this have happened? Has anyone ever heard about su

  6. I have been using FM 11 for Mac for the last couple of years. I have a couple of databases. Today, for the first time ever, my master database, which has always opened automatically when double clicked, is asking me for an Account and password. It is suggesting my home account, however the password for my home account is not working. I have tried all the possible passwords I can think of, but I cannot get into my file except as a guest and then I cant make any changes. I have no idea why this has suddenly happened. I never asked to password protect that file, I always just doubl
  7. Hello. Thank you for the marvel that is FmEasySync! It is exactly what we needed for our relatively simple sync needs, and I truly appreciate the thought that has gone into creating it. I am only seeking help because our application is made complex by some security requirements, and I have run out of ways I can think of to troubleshoot it. I'm hoping someone else can offer a suggestion that will knock this loose for me. Our application is an "observations" database that runs in Go on the iPhone. It allows our managers to make safety observations and sync them to a central database
  8. An excellent example of how to create a password field that only shows bullets. http://www.nightwing.com.au/FileMaker/demosX/demoX05.html
  9. Hello Here is my problem: Filemaker Server Adv v11.02, Server OSX 10.5.8, Client FM Adv 11.04 Using XML import, I would like to import data from a password-protected REST-API into my database solution. The database is on the server. Importing the xml data from a file from my harddisk with the appropriate xsl file is working fine, however, over http, it does not work. I tried the user:password@webseite.com method, but it did not work either (the user is an e-mail address and has an @ sign) and considering safety, this might not be a good method anyway. Is there a solution to this pro
  10. This is my first post, so please forgive me if it's in the wrong place. I'm developing a database for my schools that keeps track of a ton of different information. Currently, it's all in one large database. My issue is that in the future, when I have teachers, office workers, and management all accessing it, I want to limit access to some information to only certain people. For example, I don't want my teachers seeing money information. It's not relevant to their job. I do want them to have access to the student information though so that they can keep track of absences, etc. Now

  12. I want to open a file without asking me for password and username from my iPad device. can it be posible??? thank you.
  13. Hello, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here but I can't seem to get this right. I keep on getting credentials error. I setup my SuperContainer on to our server running SSL and edited the web.xml to put a username and password. I've tested my URL using webviewer on a layout and pass on the credentials and it works. Like so... "https://domain.com/SuperContainer/Files/Sample?username=superman&password=batman" If I copy and paste that address and on to my browser directly, it works also. But then when I use the same credentials to set the base URL to use the compa
