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.

      Greetings,
      I'm new to the group and have a quick question...
      I'm setting up an online database for teachers to enter homework assignments for their students.
      Is it possible to set up an input field that shows simple paragraph formatting (line breaks and paragraph returns)? I am only able to get a solid body of text. And could this be done while copying and pasting from a word document?
      Any suggestions?
      thanx,
      /kim

      Hi Folks!
      There seems to have been confusions on this forum about FMPro Unlimited and FMPro Server!
      DIFFERENCES:
      1. FMPro Server
      a) Can be accessed with FMPro only
      : Cannot act as HTML server
      c) Run only as an NT Service
      2. FMPro Unlimitted
      a) Can be accessed with FMPro
      : Can distribute web pages
      c) Does not run as an NT Service by default
      *** If you want to serve web pages, you need FMPro Unlimited (or FMPro)!
      PROBLEM:
      1. If NT reboots, you have to log-in and restart your database.
      2. You're then faced with the dilemma:
      a) if you lock the server, others can't access it
      if you don't lock it, your network is left wide open
      *** You want FMPro Unlimited to run as a service! It will restart itself after a reboot AND will not interfere with other users or administrator who need to logon to the server (or the workstation).
      *** This will work with NT Server or Workstation: you can use NT Workstation to run FMPro Server or Unlimited since nobody will use the file or print services, therefore you are complying with the license agreement.
      EXAMPLE:
      1. We use FMPro Server on NT Server A and FMPro Unlimitted on NT Server B.
      2. Database files are on Server A.
      3. FMPro Unlimited on Server B connects to FMPro Server on Server A to access the database files.
      4. Users can access Server A with their FMPro or Server B with their browser.
      5. All database accesses are password-protected.
      SOLUTION:
      Here is my 3 step solution to have FMPro Unlimited on Server B running as a service (could be more fancy but this is simple):

      1. Download, install and configure SRVANY:
      a) Download the code form http://vbwire.com/advanced/howto/srvany.zip
      Unzip and drop the SRVANY.EXE and INSTSRV.EXE files in C:WINNTSYSTEM32
      c) Run this at the command prompt:
      >c:winntsystem32instsrv.exe "Filemaker Pro Unlimited" c:winntsystem32srvany.exe
      d) Then run (at the command prompt):
      >regedit
      e) Create a key called "Parameters" under:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesFilemaker Pro Unlimited
      f) Create a value called "Application" under:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesFilemaker Pro UnlimitedParameters
      of type REG_SZ and enter the string:
      C:Program FilesFilemakerFilemaker Pro 5FileMaker Pro.exe
      g) Create a value called "AppParameters" under:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesFilemaker Pro UnlimitedParameters
      of type REG_SZ and enter the string:
      C:Program FilesFilemakerFilemaker Pro 5Startup.FP5
      h) Launch the "Services" control panel, double-click on the "Filemaker Pro Unlimited" service, select "Log on: This Account" and enter the user name and password of your network administrator.
      *** Or create a filemaker pro user with admin rights and password set not to expire.

      2. Create a "Startup.FP5" with an autorun script.
      a) Create a new database with no fields under:
      C:Program FilesFilemakerFilemaker Pro 5Startup.FP5
      Create a script called "Startup" that will open each database that your server will need.
      *** For example, to open FILE.FP5 from Server A, you will get:
      Open["File.fp5 (*)"]
      c) Under "File/Access Privileges/Password" just enter the SAME password that has access to all the files that you want to open and click on "Done".
      d) Under "Edit/Preferences/Document", click on "Try default password" and enter the same password, then click on the first "Perform Script" and select the "Startup" script you've created.

      3. Step 3? There is no sept 3! Just wait until NT reboots: it should not take very long
      Or just start the Filemaker Pro Unlimited Service under the Services control panel and log out.
      Go get a coffea. Go have a walk outside and enjoy the sun. You've just saved yourself a lot of grief!
      Cheers!

      Has anyone tried the connector on Windows 2000 and had some success with it? The company I work for just got FMPro5 Unlimited, but we mostly a Win2K shop; including the intranet server... How do I make it work?

      We have a small web site using WebStar 4.3 and Filemaker 5 unlimited/web companion with a few custom published web pages for searching for classes in a catalog.
      For some reason, Filemaker unexpectedly and seemingly at random, "disappears". IE it does not show up in the finder, but when I try to restart it I get the "too many licensed users" (we have only one license for unlimited) and I have to restart the machine.
      I have enabled the error logs to see what pages are being used when it crashes, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. No consistent searches being performed. The interval between crashes ranges from a few hours to a few days-- it doesn't seem to be dependent on load either, in that it happens sometimes with almost no accesses and at other times after a long period of high access.
      This is driving me crazy! I have: run tech tool pro and cleaned/scanned/defragged the disk, moved from os 8.6 to 9.0x, tried on two completely different machines (one G3, another G4), tried opening the db's locally and from a Filemaker 5 Server machine, disabled all plugins that were not necessary for the operation.
      I am running out of options. This is a pretty stock setup and I have to believe that someone out there has experienced similar problems.

      Dear all:
      I would like to use the custom web publishing features of FM Pro Unlimited, using CDML. However, I am unable to find a reference of CDML Tags on the FM site (I always get errors when trying to search the tech info knowledge base). Could anyone refer me to a source?
      Also, does anyone know of a good CDML-tutorial? I don't seem to be able to find anything of that sort as part of the FM Pro Unlimited electronic documentation.
      Any help would be highly appreciated
      Cheers,
      Ron
