Posting Problem

I have created about 5 different FMPro databases using web companion. They all work very well and when I submit a record it is recorded. Now for the problem. The last online registration database that I created looks fine and tells me that a new record has been added and IN FACT a new record is added to the database. Unfortunately there in NO data in the record. Nothing appears at all. Any suggestions?

If on the page is just single typo or wrong syntax, everything stops often working.

This I do recommend to all beginners:

Start with single layout with single field.

When this works OK, add more fields by ONLY copy/paste and never try to write manually something.

That way I am working very fast and I never had typo. I've learned this from my mistake. I've inherited database and it didn’t work in CDML. It took me 2 hours, that the author of the database named one field "Name " instead "Name". Because I've just typed that as "Name", FM/WC didn't work at all. When I did the copy I've discovered the space frown.gif" border="0

I had the exact same experience, Anatoli -- I think stories like this illustrate the need for field-naming standards, e.g no spaces, because you may just have to create a web front-end some day. smile.gif" border="0

CDML is very, very syntatically precise. Perhaps soon it will just go away.

I have tried all of the suggestions. I even recreated the pages using Claris HomePage. I still get a new record with NO data. I am getting desparate. It has to be up and running by Friday. Do you have any other suggestions? It seems to be receiving the record and not posting any data. I have made the "space" errors in the past and usually received an error message. This time I do not get an error message just no data.

OK now is the time to change Web Companion's preferences from Access Privileges (built-in passwords) to Web Security database. You have already learned why. Keep the built-in passwords, but just use them for FMP-client access security.
