I'm fairly new to Filemaker and have a few question which I hope you can clarify.
I have a Filemaker solution which I use for multiple customers. This solution exist of 2 files, a layout file and a database file. Everytime a new customer comes I copy the 2 files and clear the database so they can start fresh. The problem i have with this method is that when I change something in one solution, I have to change it in all of them one by one. This takes way to many time.
My question is : What is the best approach for this ?
Is it possible to split up all "modules" to separate file? So I have a module (separate fm file) called Invoices, Contacts , Inventory etc... and set the database structure and scripts in the separate file.
This way I have 1 main file which is connected to all the "modules" and all customers have their own main file connected to the "modules", this way if I change a script or database in the "module" it is changed with all customers.
Is this even possible? or is there a better way to approach this?
I hope you can give me some more information.
We are in the process of updating our FileMakerGo on the iPads from 13 to 16 but we are running into an issue with the sync. We are currently running MirrorSync 2.3 but will eventually upgrade to 3. Meanwhile, we need to get FMGO 15 or 16 work with our current MirrorSync.
The sync error doens't always show, sometimes it syncs and sometimes it doesn't.

I am designing a database for the inspection sheets used in our quality lab. Each of our parts has a different number of criteria that they need to be inspected for. This ranges anywhere from 5-15 dimensional requirements. I am wondering if there is anyway in FileMaker to display a varying number of both editable and uneditable fields. So for instance if somebody pulls an inspection sheet for a part with 6 different dimensional requirements, FileMaker will only show 6 uneditable fields describing the dimensions in question, and 6 editable fields for the user to type in their measurement. Then, if somebody pulls an inspection sheet with 10 dimensional requirements, it will display 10 instead.
Thank you for any assistance you all can offer!
I am having some trouble getting my XSLT file to work. I have followed many of the posts on here and have referenced
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 data to/from our solution in XML which meets the UK Government standards. My XSLT seems only to match fields but not actually import and records. I have attempted referencing the template match to root with <xsl:template match="/Message"> but this causes an "Invalid Document Structure" error in Filemaker, which doesn't seem to be a problem with the w3schools try xslt page. I have reverted back to the format in the meters.xslt example file and now hope that somebody can help!!
