I have a couple of questions before I take the plunge back into Filemaker after a long absence.  When purchasing the annual contract can someone explain what a user is?  Is it the number of people that can use filemaker at one time or does everyone that will want to get online need a separate licence?  For instance would I need one licence when I access from at home and one from work.  I might have many people sharing machines etc.

 

Also there is a limit of "2 GB outbound data transfer per user, per month — tracked annually."  What is this telling me?  My databases will tend to be quite large as we use thousands of hi-res photographs.

"USER" is a person who uses the database someone in it all day and the random user who logs in and views or edits  or creates record.

Each user will have access to use Desktop, FMGo and WebDirect (simultaneously)

My take is the Home/Work is the same user unless you are trying to use them at the same time.

If you have < 25 users but more than 13 users it may be cheaper to get a Site License.

the 2GB data is for use of the DATA API this is once you build your solution to utilized the api it only meters the DATA being served out. Container data is not included in the meter unless you convert your containers to base64 text then it would be sent thru the API.

 

 

 

how many users do you have?

15 users for teams would cost $2520 per year, a 25 user site license is $2175 bringing the seat cost to $87.

with a site license you will be able to have 25 versions of FMServer where as the team licensing you can only have 3. 

Additional if you are going to deploy the DataAPI a 25 license nets you 600 GB of outbound traffic annually, vs 360 with 15 seats.

Let me know if you would like me to facilitate placing your order, may be able to apply a small discount to your purchase. 

Cheers

      This is a problem I frequently have. I can't custom format a date in the Inspector. I can't make a selection because the drop down menu becomes a long vertical blue stripe and selections are not available. I wonder if this is a FMP problem or a Windows 10 problem. Does any one else have the same problem?

      I have a flat file database with only one table. However, I cannot not delete records. I get the error "This operation cannot be performed because one or more required related tables are missing".

      However, I can create records, just can't delete them. Obviously, I don't have a related table.

      Hi,
      My solution opens an Excel file and loops through 3 tabs in it, importing and processing the contents of each.  What I really need to do is get the user to specify an Excel file (preferably by opening a script generated default directory and filtering to only Excel files...something I can't seem to get to happen) then, in a loop, import data from 3 separate tabs in the file (tab names are fixed but import mapping is different for the different tabs) and process that data.
      When I'm running locally I can get the input file name by using Insert File into a container to hold on to the file name and can set up the imports specifying the filename, tab, and import order for each import step.  This seems like a really clumsy way to get a filename that can be accessed multiple times without repeated user input, but it seemed to be the only approach back when I wrote .V1 of this script (a couple years back).  But it worked for a local database.  Now I'm trying to run from FM Server where Insert File is not supported.  So how do I do this?  I'm running on Mac and Windows so any solution that involves plugins needs to work for either (seamlessly).
      Conceptually, this seems to be very simple ... get a filename and access it multiple times.  But I'm tearing my hair out trying to make this work.  Thoughts or guidance?  Thanks

      I want "Continuity Header Calc" to take "Group_Header" if it exists. If it does not, take Scenes:Scene Header
       
      I tried making the calculation with this:
      If ( IsEmpty ( Group_Header ) ; Scenes::Scene Header {; Group_Header} )
       
       
      But it gives me the error:
      "The specified field cannot be found"
       
      I think I'm missing something...
      Thanks in advance!
