Lookup/related fields and web companion

I have a database that has three felds that get their values from related database. This works fine, normally, but on the web the fields show up blank (they are set to lookup). I have both files open, and I haven't been able to really find anything on this issue. Can someone possibly help me? Also the URL is showing up like this:

http://<localhost>/FMRes/FMPro?-DB=Workshop&-Lay=Layout%20%231&-Token=25&-Max=1&-Format=ZNewCSS.htm&-Error=ZErr.htm&-Findall

I am using Mac OS 9.1, FMP 5.0, Internet Explorer 5. My style sets for the two files are Entry only (For the one looking up values) and Lavender (for the one containing values to be looked up.)

I would really appreciate any help.

Thank you

Are the necessary fields displayed on the layout?

I'd also rename the layout and remove spaces and weird characters -- I name it "web" others name it "cgi."

I'm having this same issue. I have 2 files, contacts and main. The contacts file holds my client info, the main file holds lookups for client info and service performed fields. the lookups work fine inside FMP, but not via the web.

I've checked for empty records and fields and corrected them when I found them.

I'm using FMP 6.0v4 on OS X 10.2.4. My URL is:

http://192.168.254.101/FMRes/FMPJS?-db=main.fp5&-layid=2&-format=newcss.htm&-max=1&-token.0=25&-mode=new&-lop=and&-view

I see the -layid tag is 2, but I only have 1 layout in the file....

any help would be great!

thanks,

joe

Hi joe, I notice you haven't had any responses.

I don't have Pro 6, so I guess from your URL some changes have occurred with CDML tags.

What is "FMPJS?"?

What is "&-layid"?

What is "&-mode"?

I've never seen such code before and am most curious. Thanks.

Oh. IWP - I Wish for Pixies (to do something 'cause I have no control).

Thanks Garry.

Joe, the best help I can offer is to advise you to learn HTML or get an HTML editing app. and learn how to embed CDML - in other words learn CWP and gain control of your design.

Good luck.
