databases closing by themselves

Recommended Posts

I've had problems while using the web companion. Sometimes databases just close by themselves. I've experienced this on 2 different servers, and with filemaker 4.1 and now with filemaker 5 unlimited. The only thing I'm sure of is that it occurs when users are accessing the database via web companion. It happens when users have tried to search for a large amount of records, but its really hard to reproduce it. Any ideas? Will filemaker close a database to prevent an error, or if it runs out of resources?

Any idea?

I had the same problem up til a few weeks ago. After the next time FMP5 quits go to the Access log file to see the last file requested. In my case I found it was one of my web pages. The page is for searching the FMP5 database and returns a large found set. I changed two things and I do not know which solved the problem. One, there are two search fields. One of the search fields is a related field. This really slows down searching. I changed the search field so it is not a related field. Two, one search field is a number field but I had mistakenly made it possible for a text value to be entered into this field on the web page.

Anatoli,

Is it still possible to buy a new NT license, not just add a license or has W2000 completely replaced NT from a Microsoft sales perspective?

I would hesitate to use FM on W2000. It is probably still not certified.

It is rock solid on NT4 platform. Everyone has some kind of problem with W2000. And with MacOS also some.

Microsoft Licences are backwards compatible Win 2000 server licence will cover NT server ..... Office XP will cover Office 2000 etc. but of course not the other way around. Media packs should still be available and cost about

We have the same for Macs and Word 5.1. MS told us, that we could copy and use the software on new machines if we have e.g. Office98.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
      Cheers,
      Ron
