  1. In list view I want to be able to "grab" an object so I can move the record up or down in the found set. Is there a way to do this? It would be just like how an item on an list in an iPhone gets moved up or down. For example, on a play list in Music, I can change the order of songs to be played. Also, I would like to have this capability when I move my solution over to FileMaker Go Thanks!
  2. Totally not sure if I've put this thread in the right topic category, as I'm not even sure how to go about this. First, I'd like to be very clear on the fact that, if possible, this will be done without scripting. I'm hoping for some kind of calculation. IDK. Anyway, I'm trying to copy or Calc one field from an older record to its newest match (using BatchNum field to match). The two fields are different fields (FormNum is the ID number field) (RefID is the the reference field for FormNum ). RefID would allow the user to find the last time the same arrangement of data (FormNum being its ID num

  4. Hello, my ad-hoc steering committee... I'm shortly going to be tackling allowing an override of the default sort order. Once implemented, there would be a preference to override the default sort order for all(-ish) queries to sort alphabetically, rather than by export / creation order. I would love to get some feedback on this idea, in particular that I'm not either targeting too narrowly or too broadly. My thought is that this could be best implemented using 3 checkboxes. Sort almost everything alphabetically by default Sort Layouts alphabetically by default Sor
  5. Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, new to FileMaker and unsure of how to articulate what I'm trying to achieve. I am trying to reorganize a database using FileMaker. My client's work is literary, and wants to be able to sort agents/editors by their publishing house/imprint. I am using the Personnel Files starter solution, as it comes with some of the features I'm looking for, particularly the "Personnel List". A quick summary of relationships: Publishing Houses [House] are parent companies. Sometimes they do their own publishing, but it's often left to children companies, or Im
  6. Hi, I was here a while back learning how to build a horse racing form. Thanks to those that helped, I've been producing a form for several months now. However, I never did figure out how to make the track averages and have FM calculate my speed figures. I'd like to give it another shot, as it will save me a tremendous amount of time. Right now I am doing all the dirty work in excel and importing the track averages and speed figures into FM -- so I'm using FM as a desktop layout program, which I suppose sounds crazy. I can get FM to produce averages in a summary report, but I need separate su
  7. Hi, i want to sort my records based on "three(3) of the most active customers", note..(i can sort my data by the most active customers but then i want to be able to only have 3 records in my found set. How do i achieve this.?
  8. I need a way to allow operators to move portal rows up and down in a portal. Is there a best practice that folks like? Perhaps point me in the direction of the preferred solution. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi all, forgive me if this is in the wrong place. I could not easily figure out where to post, apologies in advance. I was wondering if there is a way to have a records sorted in order of "date/time" last viewed. The idea being to have a list which the user can easily see records they were last dealing with and to use that list as hot links to those records. An example of this functionality is how Microsoft word gives you a quick find list of recently created documents. Kindest regards Ozziggy
  10. I'm not sure which section to post this question in so hopefully this isn't too far off. A client came to me with a question I never considered and don't know how to answer. They are using Filemaker 11. If you have full access privilages in a database you can right click in a field and have the option for sorting by that field either ascending, descending, or by a value list. However, other privilege sets don't seem to have this option and they want them to have that option but not have full access. I tried setting their Available Menu Commands to All, but that does not change anything. Does a
  11. I am compiling a library of books which have a "series" number, and a "volume" number. So for instance: Book Title, Series, Vol in series My book, 1, 3 His book, 2, 4 Her book, 3, 7 I want to sort this by a book's position within the whole series, so I need a calculation field to do this for me, which I can then ask FM to sort. What is the calculation I need to do this?
  12. We have a "Daily Log" database at work that's a little buggy, that I'm thinking of restructuring. I have a few ideas about how, but I'd like to get some suggestions before I start. The database is used to log events in an industrial plant. Log entries are made for different pieces of equipment when they are started/stopped or maintenance is performed. The main table looks something like: Daily Log Date Time User Log Comment Comment # It seems pretty straight forward, but where it gets confusing is how to handle the navigation, viewing and sorting to provide a user expe
  13. Hi everyone! I am a bit overwhelmed by FileMaker and its capabilities, so I would greatly appreciate some help. Currently, I have a database of contacts throughout the entire United States, with separate groups. (Group A, Group B, Group C, Group D, Group E). I would like to create some kind of "dashboard" or "layout" for FileMaker so that I can see how many members of each group we have in each City and in each State in the country, possibly like a pie chart that adapts to the data. Could someone please explain to me how to go about setting this kind of layout up, so th
  14. I have two sales people. I have assigned each person an employee number, 10 & 50. My question is with permission, I can control what screens, forms, reports they can see. But how do I control that they only see their sales data and not the other sales persons data. One solution I can think of would be to filter the data before each report is generated, but I was thinking there has to be an easier way. Any insight would be very helpful to me? Thanks Chuck One follow up question: If three people are connected to the same database, do you need to purchase thr
