  1. I tried few calculation in Filemaker like substitute trim etc but did not get same result. Google sheets has nice function JOINTEXT any help to replicate/convert the function in Filemaker calculation.
  2. This is probably one of those questions which separates me from people that make money as developers and those that don't (that would be me). I have a simple script that compares two variables. The variables are populated with text (Peoples Names). Basically, if the the two variables are TRUE (the variables are equal) I want to stop the script. Despite the two variables being equal - the IF continues. I have noted when I use the same numbers to populate the variables - the script works as expected. Please tell me Filemaker is smart enough to evaluate text in variables. Below is the my script and attached is a screenshot of my debugging efforts. As always - thank you to the people here which share your wisdom - a big reason I love Filemaker so much. Jim IWP: IWP: Bunk Choice Select #This script allows WebD users to select bunkmates for the coming summer. #List All Chosen Names Set Variable [ $BR_List; Value:List ( BRE__BUNKSREQUEST_tog::Bunk Request Choice 1;BRE__BUNKSREQUEST_tog::Bunk Request Choice 2;BRE__BUNKSREQUEST_tog::Bunk Request Choice 3;BRE__BUNKSREQUEST_tog::Bunk Request Choice 4 ) ] Set Variable [ $BunkRequest; Value:Agegroup_Names_List::Name_Full ] Set Variable [ $BR_Check; Value:FilterValues ( $BR_List ; $BunkRequest ) ] #IF check to see if the names has already been selected If [ $BunkRequest = $BR_Check ] Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "No Duplicates"; Message: "You have already chosen this person.

  3. I have a checkbox set with 30 'topics' for children's games. Some games can include any topic, so I want to check all the boxes. I created a script with 'Insert Text', and listed all the topics as per the value list. which does the trick nicely to select all the topics with one button. However, as the database grows, I think of new topics, and I don't want to keep updating the value list, then this script etc etc... Can I use the data in a value list as the text to insert in an 'Insert Text' script. I have tried without luck. Thanks so much.
  4. Hello guys, newbie intern here. I am placing a .text document inside a container. I am trying to grab the text out of that container without doing so manually, can anyone help me out?

  7. Hi Forum, Please help me solve a calculation for this problem, i have a table with various records, i would like to implement a field called Order_Check that would display a "1" if the table field Order_Num begins with "PT00" if otherwise it must display "0". This field Order_Num for invoice records appear to be either empty, has value ID that begins with PT00* or just have some random values, i tried the calculation: IF(Order_Number = "PT00*", 1, 0) Thank you for assisting, Miss-Amen!

  9. Hello FM Mavens, I would like to be able to change an attribute (happens to be the size) of a selection in a text window with a script. (Basically, as if moving the size selector from the Formatting Bar into a button on a layout). I created a script that cuts the selection, puts it in another text field, makes the change, cuts it out and goes back to the original field but by then the insertion point is gone. I can manually paste it back of course. I wonder if there is a way to remember the insertion point somehow and make it a so the paste step uses it. Thanks Asu
  10. Hi All, I want to validate a field to be not empty and contain a specific number of digits if the text in another field meets specified criteria. I have a field called Account_type, if the choice in that field is "Account" then I want to force the inclusion of a ten digit account number in the Account_Number field but only if the text "Account" is specified. I know this should be an easy If or Case statement but I am not getting it right.
  11. Hi Everybody, I have a text field with a text that contains normal and red-bold characters, I would like to count the number of characters with bold style. Could anyone help me to do this operation with a function? I am trying to do an script that extracts the portion of normal text to calculate the length and then calculate the number of total characters minus normal text. What is the best option? a function or an script? Thank you very much, Wardiam
  12. I'm struggling to remove quotation marks from a symbol/operator such as this: "<" I have tried Substitute (Text; "\""; ""), as well as Brian Dunning's custom function RemoveSmartQuotes (text). Both works in the field of question perfectly with normal text, such as {hello "world"} ends up being {hello world}, but ho matter what I run "<" through, the quotation marks remain untouched. Any ideas?
  13. Hi ... I can't get to work what I think should be something very simple. Our users write large fields of text. Several times they've complained because they've lost an hour of typing (medical report) Filemaker connectivity has been lost. Usually a power outage or VPN issue. I've tried to get them use to clicking outside the field and then back into the field to commit the data but I continue to hear "Why can't it autosave? Just like Word" .... Well ... I created a timer script that gets launched by an OnObjectEntry trigger. It then waits 60 seconds and then gets the cursor position using get(ActiveSelectionStart), does a set field to itself and then positions the cursor using the Set Selection. This works fantastic when typing a new entry and the cursor is at the end. Problem is when you try and edit the text in the middle of the text, the save kicks in and the next character is "selected". This causes the character to disappear when the user carries on typing. Is there no function to simply position the cursor?
  14. Apologies, as this is no doubt simple, but I haven't figured out the vocab for an effective search, hence my question: Project Table project serial # Event Table project serial # event date event detail There are multiple Events/Project. I'd like a calc field in Project to string all the related Events as text (event detail1, event detail2, event detail3, etc). What could be easier? It would preferably deal with commas, and would ideally put them in the right order (reverse chrono), but for now I'll take ugly and alpha if it works. Many thanks in advance, /capisco
  15. Hi all, I'm new to the forum--and new to programming FMP for my boss! I understand the logical concepts of programming, and how the FMP UI works for table relationships and scripts, but I don't know specific function commands. Now I'm trying to create a database for the manufacturing company I work for, and can't find a function to create a text string I want in a calculated field. Apologies if this question has already been answered, but I can't figure out how to word a search for this!! I have two tables related exactly like the "Contact Management" and "Notes" tables in the starter template: each record in table 1 has an "k_ID" number that matches a group of records in the second table (all having that same number in their "kf_ID" field"). There is another field in table 2 whose contents are a digit from 0-9. This field is the "Item Batch #". I want a calculated field ("Batch Code") in table 1 to paste the values of "table 2::Item Batch #" from ALL related records strung on end, whether there is 1 related record or 5. I've tried typing an example of what I mean....my company won't allow me to attach copies of our file, sorry. records are separated with ------------------------ lines. EXAMPLE: =========== ==TABLE 1== =========== k_ID: 01 Batch Code: 253 ------------------------ k_ID: 02 Batch Code: 67 ------------------------ =========== ==TABLE 2== =========== kf_ID: 01 Item Batch #: 2 ------------------------ kf_ID: 01 Item Batch #: 5 ------------------------ kf_ID: 01 Item Batch #: 3 ------------------------ kf_ID: 02 Item Batch #: 6 ------------------------ kf_ID: 02 Item Batch #: 7 I really appreciate the help, if I can have a solution by tomorrow morning it will mean MAJOR points with my boss! I'm on the west coast, so I'm rooting for all you people further east who'll be perusing the forum with your Monday morning coffee earlier than I will! Thanks again.
  16. 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 get "%" to show up as-is, it always translates to "%25". Is there any way around this? I've tried subtracting text, but I just can't seem to get it to work. Any bright ideas? I can't find an answer to this specific question of disabling URL string substitution.
  17. Hello everybody I'm trying to convert number to text en dutch but it doesn't work i had some problem with the calc field when i m trying ( some are good but other doesn't work) is there someone that can help me to resolve this little problem cose i m not a dutch person I join the file that i made to be more clear In advance thanks u cardinal2txt NL.fmp12
  18. I got bit yesterday and today by a basic issue. I was using the Data Viewer to write and test ExecuteSQL. The context was an old part of a solution I had started in 2006. I was having trouble with JOIN. I checked syntax and could find no errors but constantly had "?" returned. I knew the problem was related to the JOIN because the queries worked fine without it. Well, I'm embarrassed to admit the problem was this. The parent table had an auto-enter serial PK type number. All the child tables had an FK field but the type, for some reason, was Text. FM allows this as a match! Of course SQL does not. After changing all the child table FK fields to type Number everything was fine. Multiple joins we're a breeze. Why is FM so loose about field types in a relationship? This situation ought to produce an error in my opinion, or simply not work.
  19. I have two text fields, text1 and text2. Text2 is a product summary, consisting of the first paragraph from text1; text1 is a product description and varies from record to record. I set up the following to automatically populate text2: text2=LeftWords ( text1 ; Position ( text1 ; "all words left of the first paragraph symbol" ; 1 ; 1 ) ) The problem I'm having is what goes where I typed above "all words left of the first paragraph symbol". How to tell FileMaker Pro to find and recognize text control values? For example, many word processors would recognize ^p^ as a paragraph marker. I tried various combinations with and without "" from this page: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/001e/index.htm But no success because obviously there is some text encoding that I don't understand. So the question is: how does FileMaker Pro find and use the paragraph character in a block of text please? Thanks. I'm using FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced on a Mac.
  20. OK I admit it ... I'm stumped. I'm not a FileMaker professional, merely an enthusiastic tinkerer. I'm trying to create a feedback system where a series of standard questions are checked. Based on this, those questions answered 'yes' are combined together and those answered 'no 'are ignored. I have created 2 fields per criteria, 'Preset text' and 'preset question'. So ...Preset message = (if preset question 1 = yes, include ‘preset text 1’ else, blank){cr} (if preset question 2 = yes, include ‘preset text 2’ else, blank){cr} …. (if preset question 10 = yes, include ‘preset text 10’ else, blank){cr} I've managed to get the display of answers based on yes/no, but I can't get rid of the blank lines. I'm am probably going about this the wrong way, so any suggestions? thanks
  21. Hi everybody I have an error using scriptmaster 4.42 release when I try to convert a pdf file into text. I have no problem with 4.201 release. The function reurns ERROR and SMLastError is set as "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/bouncycastle/cms/Recipient" My function is defined as "import java.io.IOException" & ¶ & "import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.PdfReader" & ¶ & "import com.itextpdf.text.pdf.parser.PdfTextExtractor" & ¶ & ¶ & "if( fm_filePath == null ){ throw new Exception(\"File path required !\")}" & ¶ & "if (new File( fm_filePath ).exists()){" & ¶ & " try{" & ¶ & " reader = new PdfReader(fm_filePath)" & ¶ & " sb = new StringBuffer()" & ¶ & " for (int i = 1; i <= reader.numberOfPages; i++) {" & ¶ & " sb.append(PdfTextExtractor.getTextFromPage(reader, i))" & ¶ & " }" & ¶ & " return sb " & ¶ & " } catch (IOException e) {" & ¶ & " e.printStackTrace()" & ¶ & " return \"IO ERROR.\"" & ¶ & " } catch (Exception e) {" & ¶ & " e.printStackTrace()" & ¶ & " return \"ERROR.\"" & ¶ & " }" & ¶ & "}" Starting from SMLastError I added bouncycastle jar in my filemaker solution. No change, so I tried to add as well such as import steps : "import java.io.*" & ¶ & "import java.util.*" & ¶ & "import java.security.*" & ¶ & "import org.bouncycastle.jce.provider.BouncyCastleProvider" & ¶ & I found these steps on other forums, but without any documentation, it looks like fishing... One thing changes : when I use "import org.bouncycastle.jce.provider.BouncyCastleProvider" SMLastError becomes java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/bouncycastle/cms/RecipientId instead of java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/bouncycastle/cms/Recipient Thanks in advance Olivier
  22. Hi All, I am trying to parse text from a Job Card Items table into the related Job Card and not getting the correct result.. as the Items in the Job Card are completed any anomalies have to be reported on the Job Card and with up to 50 items in the Job Card Items there may be more than one anomaly to report, (very rarely more than two) . If the Findings field is empty I am just inserting the Variables but when the field already contains data I am using this to parse the text: Position ( JobCard::Findings ; ":" ; 1 ; 1 )&¶ & $ProdName &" "& $ItemLocation & " " & $QItemSerial On the second insertion I am getting this: PR00023 FC iLLume Unit FC0000084 Unit damaged:46 PR00023 FC iLLume Unit FC0000084 Where is the 46 coming from ?
  23. i want to import into filemaker from a text file which is a result of a http request. (in filemaker 11!) actually, what i get back from the http-request in a browser is a simple OK 1204888105 now, if i do this via filemakers script step “Import Records” and XML Data to be able to write a http request, i get the obvious error: XML parsing error: invalid document structure Line Number: 1 Column Number: 1 so i was wondering, if there is a possibility to write a XSL style sheet, that can help me grabbing this text into a record. a style sheet, that presents this short text to filemaker as XML data ? thanks for any thoughts ! klaus
  24. Hey all, I'm trying to debug a de-duping script I have which runs after importing records. The script works by sorting the imported list by a match field, iterating through the found set and marking any record with the same match field ID as the previous as a duplicate. It mostly is working fine except in this one case which has me stumped as the values of the strings in each comparison are different but the condition tests "true". In the following code example when I run a comparison on the a1 and b1 derived values, c returns "1". If I use the static a2 and b2 values, the condition tests "false" (as expected). I have checked the derived b1/b2 values in the data viewer and confirmed they are identical to the a2/b2 values. Any idea what might be happening here? Let([ a1 = "DgP5cPJYR"; // static match string A a2 = $id; // resolves to "DgP5cPJYR" b1 = "DG5GvtJlR"; // static match string B b2 = GetField(Get(LayoutTableName) & "::" & $matchField); // resolves to "DG5GvtJlR" c = If ( a1 = b1 ; 1 ; 0 )]; //c = If ( a2 = b2 ; 1 ; 0 )]; a1 & ¶ & b1 & ¶ & c //a2 & ¶ & b2 & ¶ & c ) a1 & ¶ & b1 & ¶ & c returns... DgP5cPJYR DG5GvtJlR 1 and... a2 & ¶ & b2 & ¶ & c returns... DgP5cPJYR DG5GvtJlR 0 This has got me stumped I have to say... any help appreciated.
  25. Hi there,  I have a database where i have some related tables with different information regarding an order. I want to create a customized email for the customer with a standard text, and some variables that will vary, depending on which record they are related to(different costumer data, order data etc.).  Is this possible?    I get a lot of errors when i try to customize the email this way - do i need to make "" or () in order to include more than one field in the message?  Or is there another way to do this?  Thnanks in advance,  Mike
