I have a table named Sales with the following data:
Based on Sample data below, i am trying to query the table by creating a relationship to find the ID that achieved a specified Unit amount on the earliest date.
In other words, and for example, which ID achieved a specified Unit amount first (earliest date)
Specified Unit Amt of 5 = 1 Expected records returned result
301 10/13/2018 6.5 Specified Unit Amt of 2 = 2 Expected records returned result
766 10/03/2018 2 360 10/03/2018 2
I think a selfjoin may be required. Any thoughts appreciated!

Just dipping my toes into FM and finding it opens many possibilities. Still must learn a lot to be proficient, so TIA for help.
Background: I sign out molecular diagnostic cases.
We have a compendium of tests run in the laboratory (all the tests that can be ordered, run and reported out) A Test (type) can be run on many patients. A test (instance) has one patient and each test/report/result has a patient (one). Each patient can have >1 tests. There are a set number of reporting options per test (TestA results can be Positive, Negative, Suspicious, etc (options are in a value list) Each report (ex: TestA/ReportPositiveHomozygous) has a specific text content (Table TestResults) (Pos/Neg, Report text, disclaimers, method, references) I seem to have figured out many of these relationships (I've attached my db)
Where I'm stuck:
1) I have not been able to create the relationship between the test result (tr_TestResult) and the patient instance to link the result text to the patientTest instance (currently TOC Patient|TestResult).
2) (not relationship related... rather a calculation problem): How to do the calculation so that TestOrdered:TestFinalized gets timestamped when TestOrdered:TestStatus is set to "Finalized".
Thanks for the help!
I'm sure there is a simple solution to this problem, but I can't seem to figure it out!
I have a custom app that allows the user to write letters amongst other things.
Each patient is linked to a GP and a Consultant, when writing a letter to a patient there is the option to CC both the linked GP and Consultant. However, occasionally another GP or Consultant might need to be CC'd in the letter (in addition to the ones already linked to the patient). So I would need the address of this additional consultant/GP to also be CC'd in the letter. For the life of me I can't work out a simple way to do this.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
We have a complex MySQL and PHP; multi-tenanted application which we are now looking at syncing to an offline portable FileMaker model.
I have essentially solved every problem thus far and have MirrorSync running properly.
My challenge is this: Our main MySQL database works in tandem with a second MySQL database; the second database contains 25 million property records.
The working set of data which needs to be synchronised is a small subset of data from the primary; and a single record from the secondary database into the mobile version of the application which consists of a single FileMaker file with identical tables to that of the primary mysql database and a table identical to that of that of the secondary.
How do sync the two seperate databases in a single configuration? Or is that even possible. I could see that I could generate two seperate configurations; and perhaps split the mobile version into two seperate FileMaker files; i'm just wondering if there is a smarter way to go about what I need to achieve.
