  1. I am seeing an error after syncing when I have a new record on the spoke (FileMaker DB) to be synced into a Microsoft SQL server table on the hub. The MirrorSync setup uses a custom primary key to do the insert into the SQL table. According to the sync window as well as the sync log, the insert fails. However, when I review the table in SQL Server on the hub, the record has indeed been inserted properly. For some reason, MirrorSync is reporting this as an error. In addition, MirrorSync does not seem to remember the PK of the newly inserted hub record so if I do another sync on the spoke,
  2. I have a situation that is causing me some issues. In my MirrorSync configuration I am able to download data from the HUD, make changes in the spoke DB and then sync back up and the changes are properly reflected in the HUB (Microsoft SQL) database. However, I tried to add a new record on the spoke DB and when I did a sync operation, the error on the HUB indicated that the primary key field could not be null. We manage the primary keys in our SQL database ourselves, so the next number for each table is stored and updated within the DB. MirrorSync must be expecting that our HUB table
  3. I am building a customer database. The database will have a primary key. I am looking to make the primary key either a unique integer or a UUID (with 32 chars). The UUID appeals to me due to its ability to sync tables. The primary key will be used for (obviously): Searching and sorting records As a tag against documents eg document XX is linked to customer AA, BB and CC; and A foreign key to link tables My questions are: Do UUIDs adversely affect database size Do UUIDs adversely affect speed If UUIDs retain their full 32 chars, then there will obvious
  4. Hiya, 1st of all - I have personally refrained from posting for help on a forum as I wanted to try and read, learn and solve my problems using trial and error! I am learning the FMP platform from scratch and am currently in week 2 of it. My question relates to a file I have attached to this post - the products area. For each product I have a number of 'size options' within it and each with their own unique SKU (stock keeping unit). Each SKU needs its own barcode. My job now is to produce a method to easily assign an 'available' barcode to a specific SKU. Barcodes are purchased
  5. I'm setting up a new MS configuration (v. 2.109) with about 12 tables. All tables have the primary key and creation/modification dates on special MS layouts as required. When I get to the screen that allows me to define the primary key field for the tables, the key field for one particular table is not appearing in the drop down list. I've tried removing it and re-adding it to the layout with no effect. I noticed that there are far fewer fields in that drop down list than exist in the table. What are the criteria for a field to be available in the list? Thanks, Jason
  6. I have a simple membership app whereby I have Members Table -<< Awards Members Table -<< Dues etc... This project has been going on for over 18 months and I have a couple of users who have 'cross linked' their primary keys. That is, I have placed a read only copy of the Primary Key on the Members layout and I can see that there are sometimes 2 members with the same Primary Key. Weird. (The PK is Auto Enter, Serial Number, X Prohibit Modification During Entry) Anyway, as I release current versions of my app, the users import the previous version. This is scripted
  7. Hi, maybe someone can help me with this question. I have three tables set up: Instructor table Instructor PK field Name field Programs Taught table (join table) <----- for many-to-many relationship Instructor FK field (Instructor PK) Program FK field (Program PK) <----- pop-up menu Hire Date field Program table Program PK field Name field Record State field ("Active" or "Inactive") Layout and portal: I have a portal showing the related records from the Programs Taught table on a parent layout based on the Instructor table. The portal has a pop-up menu with a cond
