  1. I have a solution that has been working great in testing. Went to move it to the FMS Server (WinServer2012R2) and none of the external data sources are available. Confirmed that the ODBC 32-bit System DSNs are the same on development machine vs. Server but still no love. Anyone have some hints where I went wrong?
  2. Hi folks, I manage FM for a university department, and we recently upgraded to server 11. After the upgrade, I have noticed that closed files on our server are no longer included in the daily backup (as they were with server 8.5). I keep the closed files in the default folder, so I know that isn't the problem. I also went through the admin console and I didn't see any option to "include closed files" or anything like that. I like the keep closed files on our server (they are for previous semesters) because people need them every once in a while. And I need them in the backup, because, periodically, they will be opened, changed, and closed, and I want to make sure I have the latest versions. Thanks for your help with this. And if you need any additional info, just ask. Dave
  3. Hi, I am working (better trying or playing around) with FM for some 5 years now. I am not a pro or anywhere near there but in course have come up with some db's serving my purpose well. However, comes the time comes the limits.... I am currently working on a simple invoicing module. (have set up a separate very small db for trial and testing as I do not want to spoil the Starting Point 4 solution template which I have amended to my requirements to an extensive stage already) 4 Fields, namely Current Date: Date Field (system time - have to refresh the window as no real time clock counting solution available for FM) Due Date: Date Field - Date when the invoice is due Status: Text Field - Active, Paid, Overdue and Aging Invoice paid: Date Field Date when the invoice was paid Purpose is to autoenter and update by calculation the Status. Case ( Date > Date Due; "OVERDUE" ;Invoice paid ≤ Date Due; "PAID" ; Date > Date Due +14 ;"AGING";Date Due ≤ Date;"ACTIVE";"") 2 Problems. a.) There seems to be something wrong within the AGING calculation, which is supposed to kick in after 14 days overdue and b.) I would like to override and change the Status field content from for example "Overdue" to "Paid", the moment the field "Invoice Paid" is not empty. Otherwise it would have to be changed manually or would stay on "Overdue" even when an invoice was paid after due date. How am I going to do that?? This may seem easy for many (and I do envy you for that) but it certainly ain't for me. Any help highly appreciated.
  4. Hi people, (I'm new to filemaker in particular) I'd want to build a database and have it hosted externaly and let as many users as possible access it online. My question is reading a specification detail about a 100/250[ theorical ] limit of simultaneous users connected at an exact same time: - Is there a limit for the qty of "registered user" i.e 250 ? (that is user 251 could not register even when noone is connected) or will I be able to let some10.000+ users register a new account and my database will be accessible as long as there is only 250 connected at a particular moment ? *Note I am not too concerned about this 250 numbers in itself since I believe it's high enuff for my present need. I am more concerned about any possible FM built-in restriction policy. Has anyone here experimented this over 100/250 qty of users logged in (or accessing a particular file) at the same time ? Thanks for your sharing your own experience here, Eric
  5. I have fields in the same table and each of those fields have numerical values ranging from 0 to 100. Assume the fields are j, e, f, f, w, i, l, s, o and n. Each of these contain values from 0 to 100 and I would like to exclude only the 6 top values to use in grading. Please be precised on how I can accomplish this and not just stuff like, use Max (x;y;...) and another this and that function. It will be much helpful if you be explicit since that's the ultimate end (to be helpful) ! Thanks in advance for those that are already putting in their time for this!
  6. I need to create a value list for a drop down to be able to choose the Graduation Year for students. I'd like the list to include: this year, this year +1, this year + 2, and so forth. I don't want to do fixed values since list will advance each year. Thank you
  7. I migrated from Filemaker 11 Server to 12 recently. I noticed yesterday our statistics, which are updated through a server side script that sets a couple of global fields, were not updating. I tried several things: - stop the database server, create new records locally and then starting again, reran the script but the global fields were not updated - created a new script, recreated the task, but this worked without issues in FM 11 so no luck there - google google google led me to no known issues or behavioral changes with global fields in FM 12 Running 12.0v4 server and client... Anyone has any ideas?
  8. Hi there,  I am having the problems in accessing the data stored in container fields using  php. The containers are not remotely stored. A screenshot is attached showing the database settings for container field. I am able to access data stored in other fields from a remote computer using php api. But when I try to access the container fields... For: $image=$record->getField('container field');     $attach=$fm->getContainerData(urlencode($image));     if (FileMaker::isError($attach)) {       echo "Error: " . $attach->getMessage() . "n";     }  I get:: Error: getContainerData() does not support remote containers  For: echo $fm->getContainerDataURL(urlencode($record->getField('containerfield')));  I get a url in response simlilar to :: http://HOSTIP/fmi/xml/cnt/Untitled.jpg?-db=DATABASENAME&-lay=LAYOUTNAME&-recid=253&-field=containerfield  When try to open the url in a browser I get a  xml in return that has ::   <error code="959"/>   My server has php and xml access enabled for the privilege set I am using.  Thanks in advance   Â
  9. We're using FMP11 Server Advanced on Windows Server with FMP11 on Windows 7 or XP computers or on a Windows terminal server. We're analysing the Server Event Log files to look more closely about how the databases are being used. The serve reports events such as 94 - Client "%1" opening database "%2" as "%3" where the % items are replaced with variable information, so %2 might become Parts List and %3 might be engineering. %1 looks usually looks something like Production (TS1) [] Now we recognise (TS1) as the name of one of the computers in our network and [] as an IP address. However the name at the beginning of %1 isn't a name we recgnise - we had expected to see the users Windows Profile Name but some of them are unknown to us - what data does FMP11 Server use to get that name? (There is no external access to the databases, access is only via our internal network and the computer names and IP addresses are entirely valid for these 'unknown' clients.) Thanks Brian
  10. We had an error come up on our Filemaker 11 server running on Windows with two machine deployment. Our php apps are generating the following error when we try to connect to the database server: Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:Program FilesFileMakerFileMaker ServerWeb Publishingpublishing-enginephpFileMakerImplementationFileMakerImpl.php Nothing has been modified by IT support or our developers as far as we know. Any suggestions what we might do to reestablish a connection between our web server and database server? Has anybody had a similar situation.
  11. I think I found a bug in Filemaker 13. The script step "New Window creates an error message that I have attached. This error is occurring in previously developed Filemaker 12 scripts and in new ones. The window does open but this error message always appears.
  12. I have tried, way to many hours, to get fmsadmin running. When I go to localhost:16000 I get this error. "The Database Server is not available. To edit server deployment, please start the Database Server first." The server is running. I just can launch the Admin Console. I see the processes fmadminserver.exe, fmserver.exe, fmshelper.exe running and the service is running as well. I have uninstalled it and java and bonjour and reinstalled them numerous times with the same result. I have deleted temp files in java, moved the server folder for filemaker. I am out of ideas Windows Server 2003 Filemaker server 11 advance 11.03 Java 6 v16 Any thoughts would be great. Thanks
  13. Fairly sure the issue is localized to the one client, but I cannot find the issue. This one newly installed client cannot see the files remotely hosted on our server, the other 400 clients have no issues. I've confirmed it is this one PC my installing NMAP on the client and scanning the server and it can see port 5003 open on the server. I've went even further and installed Wireshark on the client and filtered the server IP and tried to connect, wireshark showed no communication with the server, not even an attempt. This leads me to believe the issue is 100% with the client, but I don't know where to look or what to try. - Bonjour is installed - I can ping all of our servers with no issues I found one snippet of information that might help me: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5493/~/cannot-see-hosted-database But I could not find the resource they were talking about. Right now any help is appreciated.
  14. Does anyone know when I can buy FileMaker Server 12 ? I'm currently on version 11 and want to upgrade. Can some please help me out? Thanks, John
  15. In Filemaker 13: The help says go to FILE > MANAGE > CUSTOM MENUS er.... CUSTOM MENUS not found Wendy
  16. I have a few locations that are connected and usually just open the database file and it works. Today we started getting either the host is not available or the file is not available on that host. We just switched from using an MPLS to site-to-site VPN. I can perfectly see the server and everything but can't open my file. Locally I can open it no problems so I figured it's something with the VPN but I have no idea what.
  17. I have to dump a WinXP computer for a new Win8.1 machine. If I buy FM13, will I be able to read my old .fp7 files? Will I still see my old report formats? Or is there a conversion routine to be run first?
  18. Scenario; I developed a database for  a client that has appr. 7 employees that work in a call center. Each employee is assigned 500 accounts / customers to work. As a default all accounts are imported in the "STATUS CODE NEW"....(SEE SOFTWARE SCREENSHOT- below)....As they work the accounts they change the status code to whatever happened on the account (ie) - if they called and left a message for a customer they then change the status code to (1st attempt) - NOTE: there are 15 different status codes...  Now with 7 employees as they are all working there assigned que of accounts, the status codes are constantly changing within the que...  What I need is a layout that will show how many accounts each employee has in each status code in real time as they are changing the codes ( SEE STATUS CODE DASHBOARD )...   I would appreciate any help with this and if necessary I can arrange a screen-share to show exactly what is needed  Thank You In Advance.....  Lyntech Systems STATUS CODE DASHBOARD_xlsx.pdf
  19. Hello, Â I've been trying to create a server side script that will run daily on a windows 2003 server using Filemaker server 10. The script is suppose to export it to an excel file. (I then what it to be emailed to me, but one thing at a time). It never saves to the file location on the server, i've tried every "filewin" combination I could think of. Doing some research and tried a $variable and still cannot get it to save on the server. Is there a windows settings that may be preventing filemaker server from saving to a location? Script picture attached.
  20. Hello, was wondering if someone could share some insight onto how server scripts handle global variables. I have an email script set on a schedule that, as part of it, moves between layouts. One of the layouts it goes through has a script trigger for OnLayoutEnter that changes the custom menu set based upon username. The 'Install Menu Set' aspect of that script trigger breaks the email schedule and forces an abort. I've tried to work around that by using: If $$Script = 1 Exit Script End Ifin my script trigger. Then declaring Set Variable [$$Script; Value: 1] <email stuff with layout changes> Set Variable [$$Script; Value: ""] in my email script. But, the schedule seems to ignore the global variable and proceed to run through the script trigger, breaking itself. Am I doing something wrong or can I just not use global variables in scripts run by schedules? Any help appreciated.

  22. I have a script that 1) loads a layout and on that layout there are a series of calculations that take a few minutes to calc. 2) it them exports that data to a CSV The script runs fine on a workstation (filemaker Pro 12), but when running on the server (server 12) it doesn't complete. It actually does run the scripts successfully, but no data is exported. After much troubleshooting, I think the problem is that the server is not waiting for the calculations to load before it goes on to the next step. as an example, on the workstation the process takes about 20 minutes to complete, yet on the server the script is over in about 15 seconds. Is there a way to force the server to wait for the calculations to complete before continuing with the next script step?
  23. Hey guys, I've been trying to move all my tables from FileMaker to Access, all the data and the layout and everything. I sadly have next to no experience with either program. I've seen a link to FmPro Migrator posted in some places. Is this a trustworthy application, and will I do what I'm wanting, or am I misunderstanding it? Or is there an even easier way to do this? I haven't found much help for FileMaker 13, so I wasn't sure if maybe there was a new feature that made this easier.
  24. Apologies in advance for the newbie question, but I really have searched extensively on the web, this site and various tutorials. My only conclusion is that I do not know which question to ask, as I am fairly accomplished in VBA. I am self-learning Filemaker Pro 12 as I need solutions for an Ipad and I like the ease of creation and modification on the fly. Essentially, I have a database where the master might be many hundreds of fields, or I could create myriad tables and keys - this is irrelevant to the problem. What I would like is to create a solution where at the first field of entry, a dropdown allows for a selection of, say, 10 choices. When that field is filled, depending on the choice I would like a specific layout to appear for data entry. These layouts may have some fields in common with others but never all. Put another way, if I have Item_Field, and user clicks A, I would like the layout for A to appear natively or show up in a portal below. When they click new record, it reverts to the main layout again. I might also need this process to be iterative i.e. several levels down. If this involves CASE scripting, that does not scare me, I just need to know what to look for in the reference materials as to what this process is called. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
