Exporting excel file of records with iPad

Recommended Posts

I currently have a button that exports the current record in excel format on my Mac desktop. When I use Filemaker go on my iPad this button does nothing.

Ideally I would like that button to recognize the iPad as the device being used and create a script to export to iCloud desktop
 

Is this even possible?

 

Thanks

      Good morning.
      Does anybody know how to launch IOS apps from Go please? I am looking to open the calculator.

      My primary Filemaker 16 database connects to 4 other tables located in their respective Filemaker databases. I wish to prevent these connections from occurring when using the primary Filemaker database in Filemaker Go in iOS but allow the connections when using on a computer desktop, both Mac and Win. The reason I wish to disable these connections in iOS is that I always see prompts to locate the databases and it wastes my time to locate each one and connect it. Any way to accomplish this?

      I run a small, one-person business and would like to find a hosting solution for a few small, low-use databases. Mostly I just enter some customer charges and lookup passwords, at most three times a day. The cheapest I have found is $29/month and that is more than it is worth to me. Is there any solution out there for around $10/month?
       
      Thanks,
      Paul

      I'm looking for a way for FM Go to send messages to a mac.
      I have a database file on an ipad (local, not networked). I'd like to 'control' a mac on the network in some way by sending commands to the mac. My thought was to use applescript but I understand that FM Go does not support applescript.
      Any suggestions? OSC, or MIDI? Has anyone tried anything?

      Hi everyone,
      on a file accessed via filemaker Go 17, I am using a scripted navigation to move records up and down in a portal that is inside a popover.
      This has worked in filemaker 12 like a charm and also works on a filemaker client. The records smoothly move up and down the list. 
      However in Filemaker Go, the portal follows every move of the script as if it is not aware of the freeze portal.
      EG the down button is to move the record one record further down inside the filtered and sorted portal (like so)
      This is the script.

      - freeze window and go to portal
      - go to first line of portal and loop through the portal until I hit the record to move
      - go to next line and give the position field the value of my record to be moved
      - go to line above and give the position field the value of my record +1
      - commit record and refresh portal via an x join 
      - go to last line of the portal 
      - go to the line of position of my record to be moved. 
       
      Would anyone be aware of this issue or know a workaround to stop the portal from flickering?
       
      Thanks so much
