A client wants our company to add a database for their homepage which is on their ISPs server (it's propably UNIX). I'm not talking about simply exporting the database to .html they basically want the database on that server in a similar matter as it would appear if it would be server with 'WebCompanion'. Does their ISP need to have some sort of special filemaker support? Or does the server have to be strickly a Macintosh or a Windows-PC? What do I need to be able to view/modify the database with my WebBrowser when the database is actually on a UNIX machine which isn't running filemaker. I have browsed through numerous websites and tech helps but haven't found the answer. Can this be done and how? Any replies will be highly appreciated!

If you client want to run a Filemaker database on thier ISP's systems, then those systems need to be able to run a copy of Filemaker. Call the ISP and ask if they have the capability to do this.

Although I would suggest using one of the web hosting companies which specifically support Filemaker. Use it as either the Filemaker specific service or as the hosting service for the entire web site.

      We are currently evaluating FileMaker Pro Unlimited for use within our company, and have found very few resources available other than marketing info. I have not been able to find any tools or utilities that would allow printing of various defined layouts from within the browser. Is the browser's print command the only method of printing from within the browser?
      Assistance would be much apprecitated.

      Im just wondering if it is possible to keep text formatation on when listing out a field from filemaker on to the web.
      If I wanted to have sections with section headings that are in bold and the rest of the text not bolded, and also different size on the headings, can that be done, if so, what is the command for doing it?`
      listing out with ,break, html, raw etc didnt work.

      My boss wants to use Filemaker Pro to link faxed-in paper forms which are scanned in and converted to PDFs with additional information. The PDF needs to be linked via a reference # to additional information fields and e-mailed to an order processor.
      A customer should be able to login and view the forms with the additional information.
      Any ideas?

      Has anyone been able to get the Web Server Connector (On Apache & OSXS) to utilize the we security Database?
      My Passwds all work great if I connect directly to the Mac (OS 8.6) running FMP Unlimited, but when I try to use them through the Web Server Connector I keep getting errors about not being able to access format file xxxxx.html (from past experience I know this error usually means the pass authentication failed).

      I run FMPro unlimited AND FMPro Server on the same box and it just rocks.
      THERE ARE NO RULES except: do you get the performace you need?
      If yes then great!
