I have been running a document creation and management solution for 2 years.

My scribe maintenance subscription ran out so I bought a new license.

Boom the whole things has collapsed.

Scribe is throwing errors when a field in the database does not appear as a merge field in the document the attached being a typical error.

This solution is vital to my practice but 360Work have no taken 2 working days with no solution - not responding to my emails when I tell them that their work arounds aren't working.

Utterly frustrated.

Hey Stickybeak,

  SetErrorCapture doesn't exist as a script step, just as a calculation. Not all of our functions could be ported from calculations into script steps when FileMaker 16 came out, but they can be still be invoked just the same. Try the following line towards the beginning of that script:

Set Variable [ $setErrorCaptureOn ; ScribeSetErrorCapture(true) ];

  Here's a link to our documentation that describes the function in more detail: http://static.360works.com/plugins/Scribe/documentation.html#ScribeSetErrorCapture

  I hope that works.  If not, please reply to my e-mail and I'd be more than happy to set up a meeting tomorrow.

      I'd like to add a condition to this to not do it if "id" already exists in the table:
      Set Field [ Moby_Countries_Values::ID ; JSONGetElement ( $record ; "id" ) ]
      So that value, 'id' is embedded within the blob that I'm parsing already. In that loop some of the array sets may exist, others many not already.
      If [ not IsEmpty( $countries ) ] Set Field [ ISBN::JSON_VariableView1 ; $countries ] Set Variable [ $Cover_Group_ID ; Value: ISBN::ISBN_ID ] Set Variable [ $n ; Value: ValueCount ( JSONListKeys ( $authors ; "" ) ) ] Freeze Window Go to Layout [ “ISBN_Meta” (ISBN_Meta) ; Animation: None ] Loop Set Variable [ $i ; Value: $i + 1 ] Exit Loop If [ $i > $n ] New Record/Request Set Field [ Moby_Countries_Meta::Cover_Group_ID ; $Cover_Group_ID ] Set Variable [ $record ; Value: JSONGetElement ( $countries ; $i - 1) ] Set Field [ Moby_Countries_Values::Name ; JSONGetElement ( $record ; "name" ) ] Set Field [ Moby_Countries_Values::Description ; JSONGetElement ( $record ; "desc" ) ] Set Field [ Moby_Countries_Values::ID ; JSONGetElement ( $record ; "id" ) ] End Loop Go to Layout [ original layout ; Animation: None ] End If  
      Because afterwards I'll do:
      Set Field [ Moby_Countries_Meta::ID ; JSONGetElement ( $record ; "id" ) ]
      ...and it will relate to the just added / or already now existing record.

      Scribe 4 - FileMaker OCR: Extract Text from Select Areas of Documents and Files Automatically
      We are back with a new demo for 360Works Scribe 4 featuring OCR in FileMaker!

      This time our focus is on extracting text from select areas of your PDF document or image file. If you have a stack of files (i.e., forms, receipts, photographs) with text in the same select area and you need to pull this text into FileMaker, you can easily automate this process with Scribe.
      Watch the Video
      In this demo video, we will show how you can use the new drag-and-drop and coordinates functionality in Scribe to extract text from documents and images in select areas, to then store the data in FileMaker automatically.

      Does anyone know what error code 4101 means? It just started happening when I try to push an invoice to QuickBooks Desktop using the FM Books Connector plugin v12.0.0.2 (64 bit). The script was pushing invoices fine yesterday.
      The error messages appear when initiating a new request and also when adding related record requests (for the invoice lines). The plugin step returns the result 0, as does FMPA 18 if I do a Get ( LastError ), so neither FMPA nor the plugin seem to think there's an error.
      Also, I'm seeing a progress bar I've never seen before (see below). It displays for about 20 seconds. I never saw that before today.
      This is on Windows 10, QuickBooks Pro 2017, FMPA 18. All are up to date.
      I rebuilt the QB data file, ran the QB file doctor (which said no errors found).
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Scribe 4 - FileMaker OCR Scanning Demo Video
      Today, we wanted to share a practical way to use the new FileMaker OCR and PDF integration features in Scribe 4. If you have a stack of paper with information you need to access from FileMaker, you can easily automate this process with Scribe.
      In this demo video, we will show how you can scan in a stack of paper and extract the text (using OCR) into FileMaker, and have it on individual (spliced) PDF pages.

      New Major Version Release:
      Scribe 4!
      We are excited to announce a new major version of a popular 360Works plug-in, introducing Scribe 4! 360Works Scribe is the ultimate document automation plug-in for FileMaker; it allows integration with Word, Excel, and PDF documents. In this release, we are taking it to the next level by adding in the ability to read your scanned documents, such as receipts, forms, or contract PDF files, with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) functionality. Additionally, we added features to allow you to merge PDFs and get meta-data from them, plus multiple fixes for existing functionality in Scribe.
      New OCR Functionality
      Scribe 4 ships with brand new OCR functionality to read your scanned documents and extract text to be added into FileMaker. For example, a law firm can scan in loads of paper legal contracts and have the text extracted and imported into the appropriate FileMaker records! Scribe leverages the technology of Amazon Textract which goes beyond simple OCR by not only extracting text but also identifying key information like the contents of fields in forms.

      Click here for a cool demo file showing how to use this new OCR functionality in Scribe!
      New PDF Merge Feature
      We added two new functions to merge and manipulate PDFs with Scribe. For example, if you have a couple of PDFs stored in container fields, the new function ScribePDFMerge allows the two PDFs to be merged together. The new ScribePDFSplice function allows a multi-page PDF to be split up into smaller PDFs. This is beneficial if you have containers with multi-page PDFs, and only need to utilize a specific part of the entire PDF file.
      Get PDF Meta-Data
      You can now get meta-data about a PDF, such as the name of the author and page count. The new ScribeGetPDFAttributes function will return various meta-data about a PDF. This can be helpful if you want to have FileMaker manage PDF files according to the author or number of pages specified in the meta-data.
      Multiple Improvements to Existing Functionality
      We also made several upgrades to the existing Scribe functionality. When using Excel with Scribe, the Excel cell reading and writing images to Excel cells has been greatly improved. We also made fixes for the ScribeDocSubstitute function for replacing a value.
      Try or Buy Scribe 4
      Scribe 4 is available now at the Scribe product page. Active maintenance subscribers for Scribe or the 360Works Portfolio Bundle can download new major version 4 at no additional cost. All purchases within the last 12 months are still under an active maintenance subscription. If the maintenance on Scribe has not been renewed within the last 12 months, you will need to purchase a new license to use Scribe 4.

      For new license purchases, we have several license types available based on number of users, client-side or server-side usage, and a solution bundle license for developers with a vertical market solution.

      A free, fully functional demo is available to test Scribe. While in demo mode, Scribe will run for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker (or FileMaker Server, for server deployment).

      Full pricing, license type information, and the demo version can be accessed at the Scribe product page.
