Could be something already solved years ago, but I only noticed it happening in version 14 and not in version 13 or older.
Sometimes at random for no apparent reason the server would drop the connection to clients and this connection can almost immediately be re-established. Not a huge problem except it's annoying. I tracked it down to Time Machine interfering with the main live Databases folder. Excluding that particular folder from backups in Time Machine preferences solved the problem.
Thought I'd let everyone know just in case.
PS. Don't tell me that TM is bad and stuff. It's an implementation issue ("a bug", if you're feeling kind today), not an issue of TM as a general idea.
This should be easier, but I am having a small issue on how to limit records in Drop Down. Currently, I can not get File Maker from showing all my records within the Drop Down. Even when File Maker has a limited found set.
See attached fmp12 file Help.
Here are my records:
If I click on my Pending script it creates a found set of just pending:
But if you click on my DropDown you get all the records. I just want the pending records.
How can I limit the Drop Down to represent only those records that I have in my found set?
Thanks in advance, Chuck
I am new to FMP so this maybe a pretty elementary question for some of you. What I want to do is have a dropdown list that is defined by certain options that I have pre-defined. In my example these would be Serial key, Credentials, keygen, or patch. If serial key is selected i want a text entry field to appear below or next to this dropdown list. if credentials is selected, I want to have a username and password text enter field to appear. If keygen or patch is selected i want to have a hyperlink entry field show up.

I have a table with Jobs and each job is related to a specific year.
I would like to have a Drop down list in my Jobs layout that would filter all the jobs for the specfic year. I have tried to use Value lists and read the year data from a table. Both options and due to the fact that I have to select a Jobs table related field to use the Dropdown invalidates my attempts.
I would like to have a dropdown list that does not store anything and it just serves as a trigger to filter data. Is this possible? If so, how?
Thank you for your time in advance.
