  1. it seems that php and xml publishing will not work on Linux based servers in 19. it is my understanding that zulu uses xml... will zulu no longer work if we port our server to linux? opinions apreciated. pierre
  2. I have been going through the web to look for examples and I have not been successful. Even when looking in Lynda.com. Over the years, I have been using plist files and now wants to change to xml. I am looking for example on how to export and import data in xml format with filmakers pro . Does anyone have an idea where I could find some information? The idea is to create a script which would import a xml file located on a SDHC card. A script is being used to format SDHC cards and at the same time the NX5UCarteNo field will be updated to identify the card with a number fr
  3. Hi I'm trying to develop an interface between my filemaker database and a SOAP service. No where in the wsdl is there any authorisation so I believe I need to send my username and password before the SOAP envelope. I'm trying to do that with Scriptmaster but there are only three input parameters none of which appear useful for generating or inputting the HTTP authorisation Basic that needs to be in place. I can't see the fedex modules which may have had the parameters I needed. Can anybody help/advise or suggest another plugin I should use. Many thanks for reading this.
  4. Our network person and I have done a bunch of troubleshooting and came up with this summary and a few questions.

    XML export

    I'm very very very newbie on xml. What I need to understand is if it's possibile export in this way. I use a xsl stylesheet to export from FM. I was able to use the <xsl:for-each to export details in the way I want: <xsl:for-each select="fmp:FMPXMLRESULT/fmp:RESULTSET/fmp:ROW"> <Details> <Code><xsl:value-of select="fmp:COL[2]/fmp:DATA"/></Code> <WTN><xsl:value-of select="fmp:COL[3]/fmp:DATA"/></WTN> <Date><xsl:value-of select="fmp:COL[4]/fmp:DATA"/></
  7. I've attached two files. The first one is INVOICE, that is generated by every establishment when you purchase, and is in xml format. The second one is XSLT file, that is provided by government fiscal institution and is used to "translate" xml. PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: when I try to decode xml using attached xslt scheme on any online xml-converter website the output looks fine. BUT when importing to Filemaker, I receive an error: "XML parsing error: invalid document structure". I would appreciate any help with the issue. Thanks. XML input.xml XSLT scheme.xslt
  8. Dear all, I've just create a script to export my records in multiple xml file (one xml for each record) applying also an XSL stylesheet. So, if I use the style.xsl taking from my computer ("source" button when filemaker ask me to select the file) it works. If I put the same file online, it doesn't work giving me a SAXParseException error: internal error in NetAccess (occurred in an unknown entity, at line 0, column 0). In the same folder where I have the style.xsl there are other xsl files that works, but they are used to "import" process (from XML to FILEMAKER, while in this case I'
  9. Unfortunately, the EXCEL data storage within xml-files is very complex, and as noted by others, it is virtually impossible to handle complex (and even very simple) data without the program EXCEL itself. I just discovered a new CAVEAT relating to the scribe plugin. Reading an EXCEL document with ScribeDocReadValue(), real numbers are always returned as 'integer string' without comma, and it seems impossible to get a meaningful value out of this. '29.84' -> 2984, '2984' -> 2984 (nothing to say about '2.3' -> 22999999999999998, etc.). Although not documented, I tryed to address the f
  10. Hi all, I'm completely new to XML and I'm making an XLST for an XML feed into my Filemaker database. Surprisingly, I got the basics down rather fast, but I'm really stumped on a few fields. See attached XLST, sample dataset and Filemaker test database. Referencing the XSLT metadata, the import works perfectly fine for the nodes named 'titleId' down through 'dealType' as well as the nodes under 'licensingWindow'. However I can't seem to get the values of a few other nodes. The trouble for me is that the nodes are nested in as child nodes that aren't named uniquely and I just
  11. LS, Sometimes user copy/paste data from other systems, I guess. Anyway the data in the FM field contains a 0x0 character. Using this character in a xml/xslt exports crashes the export. Anyone have an idea on how to get rid of this character ? ( either fm-script or xslt will do ! ) Thans in advance ! Joost
  12. I'm doing an export of a table with 5 fields to an Excel file with an XSL stylesheet to control the formatting of the Excel data. So far it's working well - I just need to add some additional formatting for a few of the cells. I'm looking for help with examples/syntax for setting the following attributes: - making a cell bold - changing the font size of a cell - making all columns set to auto resize so they fit the contents of each column (same as double clicking the divider between 2 columns) All fields I'm exporting are text fields. Thanks, Steve
  13. Hello, I've done quite a bit with FileMaker in the past, but have never jumped into the XML arena. Now I have a need to do so, and I'm really needing some help with something I'm sure is quite basic...but still foreign to me. I have an external data source which export XML in a very specific format (see attached). I need to import that into FileMaker so I can manipulate the data, do some various lookups, etc. Once I've made my changes in the data, I need to export in the exact format it was when imported so the external data source can properly import. Not sure if it makes sense to i
  14. I need some help in determining if I am missing something crucial here or if there is a limitation or bug in the function BE_ApplyXSLT from the BaseElements plugin. I am using version 3.3.4 (which is the latest) on Mac OS X 10.11.6 using FileMaker 15 Adv. and 16 Adv. I am unable to get any output from the transformation, nor any error. According to the documentation, the command shall return either 0 when successful or an error. Link In my testing it only returns blank, and gives no error even when no output file is generated. It should not return blank in cany case according to
  15. Hi FMForums Community, After exporting PubMed records in XML format (where the default file name is pubmed_result.xml), the first two lines within the file must be removed in order to import pubmed_result.xml into FileMaker (14 Adv, MacOS Sierra) using a custom .xsl file. Within the ArticleIdList subset there is the ArticleId, with multiple IdType. I am including the relevant XML and XSL portions. ---------------- XML <PubmedArticleSet> <PubmedArticle> <PubmedData> <ArticleIdList> <ArticleId IdType="
  16. Trying to set up mirror sync for the first time using FM15 Pro (Not advanced). I have got past the set up of where the database is, the issue is when I try and set up the , as I don't have Advanced I have to import the MirrorSync.xml file directly, when I click continue I get an error that says, 'XML/XSL information is not enough to proceed with import/export', no matter where I put this file it fails. Any body had this? and what did you do to get round it?, be great if I could get rid of this sooner rather than later.
  17. I am having some trouble getting my XSLT file to work. I have followed many of the posts on here and have referenced https://www.w3schools.com/xml/xsl_intro.asp https://www.w3schools.com/xml/tryxslt.asp?xmlfile=cdcatalog&xsltfile=cdcatalog I seem to be able to get the examples to work and have had success with the example files for metars.cache.xml weather meter readings, but can't see why my own isn't working properly when it looks the same to me. Any guidance would be gratefully received. I am not new to Filemaker but this is my first attempt at importing and exporting
  18. Hi everyone. Could someone help me? I am so close to having this working and we've spent the last two days trying everything, and we're stumped. We built this xslt template and it's associated xml file... and filemaker opens up like it's all good, allows me to map the fields, all good, then we hit import and it only does one file and there is no data in any of the fields. These two files are the short sanitized version of the data, the original xml has 600 records... but this is exactly the structure, and I'm wondering if anyone can tell us what we are missing.? Again, no data arrives in

  21. I have a xml export via XSLT working successfully to generate the correct XML file. I've noticed the XML file has no indenting which makes it hard to read - I was wondering if there's an easy way to include the indenting in the result xml file as part of the XSL file? Here's what the XML looks like now: <rss version="0.91"> <channel> <title>Latest News</title> <link>http://localhost/</link> <description>Recent news articles</description> <language>en-us</language> <item> <title>Slashdot</title> <link>http://s

  23. When exporting XML as fmxmlresult.xml when does FileMaker populate the content of the layout attribute? Usually it looks like <DATABASE DATEFORMAT="D/m/yyyy" LAYOUT="" NAME="Menu.fp7" RECORDS="51" TIMEFORMAT="k:mm:ss "/> Yet sometimes it looks like this <DATABASE DATEFORMAT="D/m/yyyy" LAYOUT="menu" NAME="Menu.fp7" RECORDS="51" TIMEFORMAT="k:mm:ss "/> Then again when querying the XML RPC it always look like this <datasource database="Menu.fp7" date-format="MM/dd/yyyy" layout="menu" table="Menu" time-format="HH:mm:ss" timestamp-format="MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss" t
