hello

i am writing a webpage of questions, accessed from filemakerpro, but each time the page is accessed, i would like a different situation, also from the database, to appear at the top of the page. Is there anyway i can do this randomly?

thanks,

kim

Assuming that each of your situations are in a different record of a database, you could use FileMaker to script the chosing of a random record within the database, set the information from that random record to a global.

Then when your action is run from the web site, use the -Script command to run the script and have the global field show up somewhere on your format page.

If you only want to serve people one question at a time, use the -findany action.

I just reread your question, and it seems you want to have two different parts of a database to appear on the same web page (or something similar).

Basically this cannot be done unless you use frames. I hate frames and usually avoid them, but this is one instance where they are useful.
