Multiple DropDown list alternatives help

Recommended Posts

The lack of support for Drop Down lists in FM Go is creating havoc for me. I want to be able to create a Quote on site at a customer with two particular fields, one is not a problem thanks to Phil Caulkins excellent demo on Auto-Filtering portals, (ProductName), as it is part of the QuoteLines Table the other one however is not, (Dept), and is currently sitting with a few hundred options. Typing in the name, with the probability of getting it wrong, is very time consuming on a phone. part of it is right but the Dept Field is defeating me.

The file is a dogs dinner but it is only meant to test the functions it is not a work file. Go to the Quotations layout

Any assistance would be very much appreciated

Why not use a pop over with a portal that shows all the choices that a user can filter on by typing a possible name? I started using that everywhere where a plain drop down would be too long or I want them to be able to search on first and or last name.

Hi Agnes,

Thanks for your response. If you look at the demo file that is what I had done but I was stuck at inputting the Dept as that is in an unrelated table. I have now solved the issue though using exactly what you suggested, I just had to add a new layout and relationship

      I've just upgraded to Filemaker Pro 17 and Filemaker Go 17. Unfortunately I now get 'The Host's Capacity Was Exceeded' error message (attached) when trying to open a file on my iPad that is hosted on my MacBook. I'm the only user of this file, so it seems strange and I've never had the error with previous Filemaker versions. Has anyone any ideas please?
      Edited to add that the file opens with Filemaker Go 17 when it is open on the MacBook with Filemaker Pro 16, therefore could this be a bug in Filemaker Pro 17?

      I’m trying to retrieve a street address after I’ve used the ‘location’ function to access the gps coordinates. This may be simple but all I’m stumped. Maybe there’s a beginners tutorial on how to use url’s To get what I need.

      I'm using FileMaker 12 but want to get a version that syncs via free iCloud or Dropbox type service (you can only do it manually in FM12). What is the earliest version that does this? Its for personal use and I don't have much money so I just want to get a cheap older version of FM but want it to sync across all my devices.

      FM go 17 does not see any files running on FM Cloud 17/AWS even though said files are running, an authenticated user is accessing the files via FM17 and WebDirect works without issue. Any help on this would be terrific as FM Cloud 17 is running, thank god, without problems.
