  2. Hi. I had a really weird problem last night that was pervasive through all files I was working on, served, local, and even a new file I created to try to test the issue. It was totally crippling and driving me crazy. I had gone into a script and selected the Go to Layout command, but when I tried to select a layout, none appeared, even though there were plenty of layouts in the table. I dismissed it as a temporary glitch and tried a Set Field command, needing to set a field to a calculation, and again, found the system locked up in such a way as I had never seen before. It would not let me ent
  3. This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations) With ScriptMaster installed run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed dialog 2 is EMPTY fmsadmin resta
  4. Hi gurus, I am sure I’m missing something simple, but for the life of me I can’t figure this out. I have a database with tickets. What I want is when a new ticket is created I want to see a popover (see attached) then I want the user to type in the top box and as they type I want to filter the list below (a portal) and once they client is shown they would select it and a ticker is created for the client. I sound a script and modified to fit my needs but can’t get it to work. Can someone stretch a helping hand? BTW the filtering is working but its not reflecting in the popover its
  5. Hi all, I'm an FM novice who has a functioning database, and I'm trying to add layers of functionality to it. One feature I'm trying to design is a script to search through a Gmail outbox with certain keywords. In URLs, "%" translates to "%25". Filemaker appears to do this automatically - In Gmail syntax, you need to write "in%3Asent" to have the Gmail search bar contain "in:sent" which searches my outbox. Here's my current code for Go to URL: This "%" bit translates to "%25". I've tried "\%", I've tried creating a string, x, then having it open x, but no matter what I cannot
  6. Hello everyone.. Guess I have been away for a while. Not fully back though because I am not really engaged with computer tech stuff at the moment. However, I really stumbled across a problem earlier today while going through my email logs. I observed that a server script I had set up has not been attaching the Pdf file report as supposed to. It only delivers the message while leaving out the file attachment. I did test the script when I added it but what I did not test was the result when run by the server. Allow user Abort [Off] Commit Records/Requests [No dialog] Set Var
  7. I have two tables, A & B, with similar fields. I want to write a script that will search table B for records that match the fields that are entered in table A. I am not sure how to do this. Any suggestions?
  8. Hi. I'm using FMPro 12 Advanced. Creating a database for our community centre and I need to add a membership number to contacts - but not all of them. I've created a separate table for Membership numbers (as not all contacts will have one, so serial numbers aren't appropriate). Each membership has a number of details fields. It's probably a REALLY logical and stupid problem I'm batting against - but I need to: Select a contact>go to their details>add a membership number (go to a floating window layout, enter the details to the serial-number-derived membership) an
  9. Hello, I have a weird issue that just started happening when I use the 'Print to PDF' script step in a loop. I have a script that passes through and prints out a set of pages. When I use the script Debugger and when I reach the spot I am having issues with, I can see, during the preview, that it is in the correct record; showing the correct page, but once it is done and saved as a PDF, it is showing the first record that was browsed. I have attached a snapshot of the script I am using. If you notice, I have it go to the layout First, Performs a Find based on a Variab
  10. I have a number of scripts that have worked perfectly for years in previous versions of FileMaker, however in FMP 15 they causse FM to crash. They only way I have found to avoid the crash is to use the debugger and to use the "step into" button. That of course is a very cumbersome workaround. You can see one of the culprits below. Anyone have any ideas what's wrong here?
  11. Hi all We have a web based tickets portal which creates new messages in our filemaker database - this is for customers' use. It does this using the PHP API (the website was developed by a third party). We would like the owners of tickets to be notified when the customer has added a message to one of the tickets that they are in charge of. Is there a way for filemaker/filemaker server to trigger a 'send email' script when a new record is created via the web portal? Or would it be simpler for this action to occur on the web side? Many thanks
  12. Hello, I have more than 10k executable files, each EXE export data to a single table, inside of an unique MySQL. I created a FM database to manage all data (ODBC), but I didn’t solve how to trigger a script from an external EXE, without looping for new data each minute. Questions: #01: There is way to trigger a script in an open database, without looping ? #02: Runtime solutions can be used with parameters? My best idea, at this time, is to create a runtime solution and a relationship, and call it from the EXE. I do think is a "stupid idea" and t
  13. I am running a server script periodically (every hour lets say) which does some database maintenance, uploads some files, etc. I do this on a number of Filemaker Servers (latest server version running on Windows machines) without problems…except for one server. On this server I use scriptmaster to up load some large files into containers as they are generated from scientific instruments. The problem is that the server runs seems to run out of RAM memory after a "few" days. I think this is the only thing that this server does differently than the other 4 servers and feel that this is the proble

  15. Hello, I have a tab control panel with four tabs, and I would like to achieve that when I change tabs a script is triggered and would set the value of a global field called "zzz_g_collection_type" according to the tab name which is active. I need this field to dynamically filter the products that are shown on 1_row portals that I have put into each tab panel space. I have followed Elishree Dey tip on http://burnignorance.com/filemaker-pro-tips/trigger-a-script-when-user-changes-the-tabs-in-filemaker/ but I cant make it work, it only changes the value of "collection_type" field o
  16. Hello, It always go to "Default segment button bar", set on the button bar setting, when reenter to layout. I need to go to same segment when user was working on before he left the layout. I know how to get back to last tab panel used, and I wonder if there would be similar for this. Thanks a lot! Luis.
  17. I have a Layout in Table Mode as (partially) shown in the attachment. (Note: First row will have a Country Code in it - not shown in attachment) I want to "fill-down" the last country code in all rows (in the Country Field) UNTIL the country code changes. Then I want to similarly do it for that one. Until I reach the end of rows. My database will grow from 500 to 10,000 rows of text/number data. I am uploading in batches from Excel. Is this possible? I've tried various calculations and scripting without much success. Thanks! I'm trying to get something like this:

  19. Hi all not sure if this is the right area for this post however,any Help appreciated in a design that i am working on for a small point of sale i have an issue (or challenge) the normal price is set as a Retail Price (all good) however I have been asked to now fulfill this next part. A Multi-buy concept. so e.g. a bottle of wine would normally sell for $12.99 however there is a promotion where you can get 2 for $20 ea (or a breakdown of $10 ea) Now I have put a field in inventory table for multi buys i.e. fields 1. a checkbox for whether it is a multi buy item. 2. a fiel
  20. I am new to FM, coming to it from a SQL Server/Oracle/Access background. I have created a database with layouts and while there is certainly much more for me to learn it generally is working as I desire it. However, I need to perform a task that I do not understand how it would be done in FM. The example below is not my actual problem but does exemplify my core issue and hopefully is easier to understand than if I described my project. I have a table of Users, a table of Entitlements, and a join table of UserEntitlements. I want to execute SQL that, for a given User, will read from
  21. I am running FileMaker 14 on a Win 10 machine. I have a set of records that each have a field with a starting number and a field with an ending number. I have to perform a find that locates the record where the find criteria is greater than or equal to the starting number AND less than or equal to the ending number. I need to write a script that will just let the user enter the find criteria in a edit box and then go to the record. This will theoretically be only one record that would match from the dataset. Can anyone point me in the right direction with this? Thanks RDW
  22. Hello All, This may have been addressed before and I am very new to scripting in filemaker. Basically what I am trying to create is a script where I can find records from a carriage return separated list. I have created a field and a button to execute the script. For Example: If I have 50 records for every US State, in the field I could put: California Nevada Oregon Thus populating just the 3 records. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  23. 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

  25. I'm using 14 Advanced, and looking at the Script Workplace. The left pane has my scripts. Some are in folders, some not. How does one move an existing script into an existing folder? I tried dragging but that won't work. Must be a different way? Or perhaps they are moved someplace else in FileMaker Pro?
