After completing a database in filemaker 8 I stumbled into the problem of almost all my scripts failing when used on the web (via IWP).

An example of which has been a script that date/time stamps a field so it can be used for notes. I'm also trying to create a script that opens a new window but again this wont work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Yeah. An example of one is "Insert Current Date" from the script menu. This script appears to be compatible with the internet but when the script is run the date and time aren't entered into the field.

Any ideas???

Also when opening a new window using a script, the script maker window tells me it will create a new virtual window on the web. What does this mean?

I have had no problems using the New Window script step in IWP.

What happens if you have a script that only opens a new window? Does that work?

Is it possible that you have some other step that's interfering? Perhaps you invoke a sub-script that's not compatible? Perhaps you have field validation that is failing (I have had troubles with field validation hanging IWP, and have written Validation scripts that test and report [using a new window!] back as a workaround).

HTH,

David
