status(currentdate)

Recommended Posts

does anyone know a simple way to get a client copy of filemaker running as a server to click over to the next day after 12pm. If the only solution is to shut down and restart so

that status(currentdate) can recalc then does anyone know how to get win98 to do that or have an applescript for it on the MacOS.(or can anyone write me the script cheap!)

You could try getting one the plugins that triger scripts at a specific time.. so at 12 you could triger a script that replaces all off your current date fields with the current date...

Status(CurrentDate) and most other status functions automatically recalculate themselves if the calculation is UNSTORED.

AFAIK the Today function requires that FMP be restarted for it to click over.
