  1. Man, am I frustrated with the current update, which I am reminded about every few days when I start Filemaker. It asks me if I want to download, does not download the file to my designated Downloads folder, and then tells me that I must close Filemaker in order to proceed (see screen shot). When I close FM, the update stops of course, and I end up without my update. Three days later, this whole little scene plays out again. This is one of the more unintelligent updates I have encountered in my day. If I knew the filename and location of the update when it downloads, I could go get it myself, but I have not been able to find it on my own. Are others troubled by this? Anyone know how to work around this poorly-conceived update routine? Rick A. Pleasanton CA FMPA Windows 10
  2. I'll try to be as detailed as possible, but here's what i have: I have a paperwork database that is basically allowing me to fill in paperwork that is necessary for my company to start an account. Well, after using this database for a while, I found that I was having to retype a lot of information when the same customer would submit a new app. So, I created a 'template' table that basically stored their information so that when they need a new account, they email me, and I can just click one button and all of their data is imported from the 'memorized' table into the main table. it's been working fine. now i'm starting to notice that we are getting customers who are taking over other accounts, so, i need to figure out a way to have it UPDATE the data from the 'memorized' table to the main table instead of importing a new record and starting from scratch. the problem is that every time i try to do the import (with the update existing records in found set selected), it keeps importing the first record in the memorized table, but not the one that is in the found set. my script (see attached screenshot) pulls up a window with the memorized data, and then has another window with the main data. the script finds the one record (customer) in the memorized table, then selects the other window and omits that single record (showing omitted only). so, now both windows have only one record in each...then it tries to import (or, update i should say)...but it still grabs the first record in the memorized table instead of the one that was just found. what am i doing wrong here???
  3. Hi guys! First post please go easy on me if I ask silly questions haha! So I'm developing a FM Go app for one of my friends, now he sells things at roadshows, conventions so on and so forth. My question is, if for example, he has no Wifi/3G. How does he go about "syncing" or "uploading" the new data he has collected offline, to the database on the network in the office? Sorry if it seems unclear, I'm relatively new to this sort of thing. Thanks in advance, Sean.
  4. Hi. I searched around the web for this but cant quite get a definite answer. I'm developing an ios app and my boss would like to setup and use filemaker as the backend for it (since he has other uses for filemaker too). I was thinking of using the xml api to request data such as regular records and images (through http/rest calls) but would it allow me to add/update records or create new layouts/tables as well? Thank you in advance. ;)
  5. Hi, I developed a runtime database with FM12 Pro Advanced and have it running remotely. How do I deploy updates to that database without losing the data? Thanks for any help Mike

  9. Hi, I just installed the custom SSL certificate as part of the update of my FMS13 to 13.0v9, and I noticed the open url script step on my FileMaker Pro client stopped working since the certificate was installed. I have since proceeded with the update and completed it successfully, but the open url issue remained. I'm at a loss as to why this is the case and would appreciate any suggestions to resolve the issue. I know the open url script stopped working after the certificate was installed but before the update was carried out because I happen to have need of using it at that point. The issue appears specific to my FMP client as the same script runs smoothly on FMG as well as on Web Direct. There is no other script steps involved: It's just open the url given in a record (it's a table of websites). Many thanks for your time and help. Cheers, The MacGuffin
  10. Hello guys! I wish to everyone a happy new year. I am new to FM. I'm trying to create a Diary. I have the following tables: Diary --< StudyLog >-- StudyPart >-- StudyContent In my diary Layout, I have a portal. Through this portal I want to: Create new records to StudyLog, StudyPart, StudyContent IF there are existing records to StudyPart or StudyContent I want to keep those the same! Example: I create Day: "1/1/17". Through the Day's portal, I create StudyLog: "Log #: 1, Time: 9:00, Duration: 1hr" StudyPart: "StudyPart: Chapter 1, Chapter Title: Coulomb's Law" StudyContent: "Title: Quantum Physics, Author: ..., Type: Book" In the same Day, through the portal I want to create: New StudyLog Same StudyPart Same StudyContent When I write the StudyPart and it exists, I want it to auto complete. Same for the StudyContent. I tried to make it as simple and compact as possible. If you need pictures or anything else, please tell me. I would appreciate it if anyone could help. Thank you so much! Again, happy new year!
  11. Hi, I've Googled and read, but given the "Preserve external container storage” option available now in in 13.v2, it seemed many recommended protocols were outdated. The setup: Separation Model both UI and data, hosted with FMS12. Replacing both files time.FMS12 (yep, still not updated to FMS13 - working with IT to do so)Clients are FM13Migration script (imports) written and ready to go.So, can someone please list the steps needed to replace a file on a FMS12 that has secure external containers? Should I have FMS13v2 installed on the FMS12 box and run the migration locally (via Teamviewer)? I usually copy off a backup to DropBox and do the updates on my iMac and then rehost. Is this still possible without breaking links? -Barbara
  12. Has anyone come across issues upgrading from v11 to v14? The Filemaker website says I can use my existing FMP 11 Advanced install to qualify for the lower priced FMP 14 Advanced update until 25th September. However, it won't install and keeps on saying it can't find a qualifying product, even when I use the Installer Browse function to identify the version of FMP 11 Advanced currently in use. My version of FMP 11 Adv is itself an update version from an earlier install of FMP 10 Adv. Could that be a factor? I originally installed FMP 11 Advanced on my office machine, and as the licence says I can install on two machines for one user I am trying first to install FMP 14 Advanced on my home machine. Is that the problem then? My Office machine has not yet been upgraded to Yosemite which 14 needs to run - I was going to do that next. Apart from the UNUSABLE new Filemaker Forum, the whole thing is hugely annoying and I do hope someone can give me a clue of what to try next... TIA
