I am currently working on a database that will score our company's suppliers.
I have one table that contains all contact information for the suppliers (Suppliers), and another related table that contains the actual score entries (Scorecards). Suppliers are scored on pieces shipped on time and quality reports. We only ever send a scorecard to suppliers based on information from the current year, so I have a field in the Scorecards table for year. The layout I am working with is based on the Suppliers table, with a portal displaying the related entries from Scorecards in the specified year.
Now, where I'm running into trouble is my attempt to retrieve a total for Shipped pieces for a specific Supplier in a Specific year. In other words, how do I get FMP to take many related records, and sum only related records based on data in a third field?
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 have a database that keeps track of computer system information. I have a record for each system (one per room). Within this system there are a number of different computer devices and I want to track settings such as IP addresses subnet masks and other network type information.
I have a table called “Systems” and I’m using tabs to separate the different devices within a system. Within each separate tab do I need to create a unique field for each piece of information or is there a more efficient way to do this? For example:
the first field would be device one IP address
the second field would be device one subnet mask
The third field would be device one preferred DNS
The fourth field would be device one IP address
The fifth field would be device one subnet mask
The sixth field would be device one preferred DNS
Seems like I’m missing something and there might be a more efficient way. Thank you for any help.
I am not sure if I should be in this forum or the printing forum. Here is what I have. I have an inventory database. Everything is done but I need to be able to print a receipt for any inventory not turned in. It is a student database so the primary key is the Student ID. I have nine fields that are filled out with either:
1. Not, Received, or Not issued.
I want to be able to print out a receipt showing the student what they still owe us before they are cleared. I am just not sure how to do that. I was thinking maybe a script that looks at the field and only picks out the "Not" , takes that label and puts it on the receipt for example:
Geometry Book: Not
So the script would see that the Geometry book has not be turned it and prints that out on the receipt. Hope that makes sense. Thank you.

I have a multi user db and I'm finding that people are locking records b/c they are leaving the cursor in a field after doing a specific task.
Is there a way to script all fields to have NO focus after a task is complete?
I have tried to change focus to other objects on the screen, like a button, that do not use a cursor but the file remains locked.
