I am in the process of connecting an existing FileMaker database to a SQL server that is behind a web interface. I wanted to know if there is a way to send a command from the web interface to kick off a sync.
For example, a user opens a record on the web, makes some changes, hits a save button.
How do I get that "Save" to trigger a sync?
And can I get it to sync that single record or do I need it to sync all records that have changed?
Thanks in advance,

I'm trying to use execute sql to populate a field with the sum of all the values in a field of related records. All I get is a ? so obviously something is wrong with my syntax but I cannot figure it out. Any help much appreciated! This calculation is occurring within the 'Collections' table.
Let ( [
query = "
FROM \"Straws_for.entry\" AS S
JOIN \"Animals.to.Collections_join\" AS A
ON \"S.fk_a.to.c.join\" = \"A.pk_join\"
WHERE \"A.fk_collection\" = ? " ;
collection = Collections::pk_collection ;
result = ExecuteSQL ( query ; "" ; "" ; collection)
] ; result )
Also, after some reading on similar threads I see people suggest not using this function in a calc. field... if there's any better way of doing it I'd love to hear it. Thanks for the help, really appreciate it.
I have a set of order forms, in which each order form has X amounts of orders from X amounts of clients. I can summarize with a Summary field the number of orders each client has ordered on one order form (weekly order form) and now I want to make a report that tells me the breakdown from week to week, and quarter to quarter. I can get the report to break apart the weeks by quarter, and it displays each week's correct total, but it won't do a total sum of each quarter, let alone for the entire database.
I've tried summarizing the weekly summary field to get the quarterly amount, either in a new field, or on a trailing sub-summary part. The new field just copies the number from the weekly summary field from the record that is active, and the other way just shows the last above record. Wanna pull my hair out!
I have a feeling that the problem is in how I set up the original weekly summary field, but I just can't see how, or how to make it work.
I'm trying to export my filemaker records to my external sql database via the execute sql script step but am getting a number of errors.
I can see my external ODBC source and can generally write to it (I can go to the respective layout and click 'new record'). My query basically as follows:
"INSERT INTO dbo.Log ( dbo.Log.log_id, dbo.Log.log_case_idf, dbo.Log.Labour_TOTALS_Labour_Cost, dbo.Log.Labour_TOTALS_Item_Sale) SELECT Log_Log.log_id, Log_Log.log_case_idf, Log_Log.Labour_TOTALS_Labour_Cost, Log_Log.Labour_TOTALS_Item_Sale, FROM Log WHERE Log_Log.Log_Type = '2'" My first question is: is it even possible to export to an odbc source with a 'insert INTO SELECT' query?
