After my Windows 10 based Filemaker Pro 11 MarinaPro Solution is launched (Path = C:/MarinaPro/Marina.fp7), I need to create a variable ($$source = filewin:/C:/MarinaPro/ResScheduler/) to a revised default "Open File" path. Because I need to select from several reservation request attachment Excel .csv files, placed in the ResScheduler directory by an Outlook 2010 Macro, my "Import Records" script is set with an "unspecified" data source.
When my script is activated with Error Capture "Off", I get the obligatory Filemaker Pro Error message, "The file <unknown> could not be found..." and the "Open File window is still set to "Look in: "MarinaPro" (Default). And, of course with Error Capture "On" there is no Open File window presented.
I have to manually select and import the first Excel.csv file before the default directory becomes "ResScheduler".
I want my default "Open File" "Look in:" directory changed from "MarinaPro" to "ResScheduler" before I open the first Excel.csv file.
Is there a way, nothing I have tried is working.
I've updated my computer from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. My FileMaker Pro Advanced 11 does not launch. I get the message "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect." What's the solution for this issue?
Update: I clicked on an fp7 file, and then Windows asked me to insert the FileMaker CD, which I did. Some files were quickly copied over, and everything works fine now!
On windows 7 (VMware on OSX), using FMP17 and Microsoft Access 2016
Trying to do a ODBC import and selecting the datasource, I get asked for Username and password, even if the Access DB is not password protected.
The data sources are correct (tested from Livecode) and should be working without user name and password.
On the properties of the ODBC pane setup the path seems correct (not pointing to 32): %windir%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
What am I missing?

I'm a beginner in FM, and i'm trying to develop a solution that allows me to import data from a csv file. I have two related tables Customer ("parent") and Alerts ("child"), each one has a primary key and the Alerts table has a foreign key to conect with the Customer table. I have to populated the alerts table from a cvs file that could have lots of records so I want to relate this new data to the right customers automatically when i import it, the new data does not have a field with the customer ID (primay key) only has its name. Could you please give me any advice with that?

I have several customers that utilize our MarinaPro Marina Dockage Management solution. All are running Windows 10 Pro 64Bit and Filemaker Pro 11.0v2.
All the MarinaPro solutions are functioning well with exception to the one marina that is using an HP LaserJet Professional M1217nfw MFP printer. The printer has been named "HP LaserJet".
The problem is that scripted reports will not print after an updated/revised solution is installed on the computer. However, a test page can be printed from the Windows default printer.
Print scripts are utilized by more than one report and this sample is named - "Master Portrait Printer | Current Record | All | 1 |" and is formatted as:
#Used by: Print Float Plan Form
#Used by: Toggle Printer Mode
#Print: Current Record | Print Range All | Copies: 1
Print [Restore: HP LaserJet; No dialog]
Filemaker Help states, "If you do not specify an output destination before saving the script or 'if the specified printer cannot be found' when the script executes, the 'output from the script step is sent to the user’s default' printer."
It appears that the "specified" printer is not being found and the output from the script is "not" being sent to the user's default printer.
However, if I "re-specify print options" and "Save" the script it will start working again. And now I am unclear whether it is actually finding the FMP "specified" printer or the Windows "default" printer.
Any ideas why this occurs?
