wdrspens Posted October 8, 2020 Share Posted October 8, 2020 I have a small Filemaker Member's database (less than 1,200) with some 650 existing members but I am not the Membership Secretary. The Membership Secretary uses Excel to record who joins and resigns, and each time there is a change in membership (joining or leaving) the Excel file on Dropbox is updated and I am notified. I therefore have to import that data into my Filemaker Members database each time there is a change to the members (new member, change in personal detail or resigned member). However I am in control over the data of the existing members who also join our web membership (at present less than 100). The web members have to be manually activated when they join the web membership and I have to check that each person is a member before I activate their web membership. So far no problem. I record in my Filemaker Members database the following data in respect of each member (in addition to their personal data) - the date to which they have renewed their membership, the date they resigned, the date they became a web member and whether their web membership has been activated or deactivated. It is important that their web membership is deactivated when they resign their membership, so they no longer have access to the members section on the web. I therefore want to set an alarm that alerts me each time I import from the excel file or when I open the Filemaker database, that if any member is now recorded as having left, and is also recorded as having an activated web membership, I must deactivate that member. Thus, in respect of each member, if the field "Date Left" shows a date AND the field "Activated" is Yes, a warning is raised and that warning remains until the field "De-Activated" is also Yes. I know I can achieve that by conditional formatting, but I can only get about 28 members per page, so will not be alerted unless I scroll through all members. I therefore need to get a warning in the Header Space. Can that be achieved? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
