I would like seek for your help on my current situation. I had PC laptop running Filemaker Pro 15 with a Duplex printer.
In my solution i had create 21, first layout will be consist of a field and print button. As of the rest of 20 layouts which i had set the field in different location ( randomly ).
My intention is to have duplex printing all the 20 layouts in one single print job.

How do I split the contents of a text field into multiple chunks using the last ". " as end of text?By Quito
Charles Ross (Chuck) posted the following script in 2010 to split the contents of a text field into text chunks, using the last period (within a period count) as text chunk separator:
MaxString = Left( String; 100 );
// Get the first 100 characters of the original string.
PeriodCount = PatternCount( MaxString; "." );
// Find out how many periods are in the substring.
PeriodPos = Position( PeriodCount; "."; 1; PeriodCount );
// Get the position of the last period.
Substring = Left( MaxString; PeriodPos )
I've only been able to get the first line to work with a given number of characters:
Left ( String ; 1880 )
When I add the rest of the script there is no error message, yet nothing is recovered from the String.
The second problem I have is: As the remaining text will not necessarily start at 1880, how do I calculate the recovery of the remaining text after the first text chunk is collected?
Thanks very much beforehand,
I am trying to use FMPA13 on my 13 MacBookPro to read a text field and time it inserting the resulting time in a specific field
I import the text files from a folder. Each text file has a dffret lenght,
My screen is small and certain pages are too large to appear in the text field a I created
Is there a way to force the import of a single text file splitting if necessary in a double or even triple column while keeping it with the same field name?
I have a textbook composed of chapters. The book was simply entered as separate sentences in text field, and chapter titles in another text field. Chapter Title Sentence ABC aaba ABC abac ABC efgdf ABB bdc ABB cdfegdf . . . What I would like is that when I search for a chapter title, to have the result of sentences summed up in a field and separated by serial numbers starting from 1 For example: Searching the above data for the title: ABC should show the output in a field as: aaba (1) abac (2) efgdf (3) Of course chapters have variable numbers of sentences, so the count has to stop with the last sentence.
I really appreciate your help.
