I can sense the eye rolls but, I’ve just upgraded to FMS19 on a MacPro after upgrading it to Big Sur and the database container fields are reporting missing files. I have defined the alternate database folder and its associated external storage volume which was verified. Could I have the syntax wrong? I have “filemac:/System/Volumes/External Data/Container Data/“.
“External Data” is the name of my external drive. The “Volumes” folder is of course hidden but would that matter? I’ve tried unhiding it, but to no avail.
Should one use “%20” in lieu of spaces? Should one use the sub folder “Container Data” in the path, or is that assumed anyway?
I’ve tried these permutations but am getting nowhere. Does one need a restart after specifying the external container path - it didn’t seem to suggest so?
Hi people! I hope someone can shed some light on the following issue.
I made a simple script for button to import the data from .xlsx and update a field. Script works good but I have a problem with the last step. If xlsx contains the data for import, field gets updated and record is not shifted. Fine.
However, if the .xlsx has no data to import, FM automatically shifts to the first record. What I would like is that in the latter case record is not shifted or in other words... I press the button, there is no import because there is no new data, current record is not shifted.
I tried with Go to Record as the last step but none of the offered options (first, last, previous, next) does the job. I guess I should use calculation option but I'm completely clueless what to put in.
Tnx in advance!!!
there is a price list in Excel with images embedded. Do you have an idea how to import those records into DB with corresponding images preserved?
Note that I've attached only two records, there are 600 of them. Any manual manipulations with the images is not an option.
I am trying to import data from a MySQL database and need to somehow also import fieldnames to be the fieldname in FMP. Is there anyway to do that? I have a CSV of the fieldnames and I also have a MySQL dump of fieldnames and associated data.
Thanks for any help.
Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them.
Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll.
