Good morning everyone I created a database runtime solution with FileMaker Pro 15 advanced. The program must export the contents of a form in PDF format. In a solution that runs under FileMaker I could use the command "Save as PDF" but this command does not work in a runtime solution. Could someone tell me how I could make this function? thank you so much.
I have just downloaded the 360works Email plugin Sample and I am doing some tests to check whether this would solve my problem. I would like to be able to download all emails from my email account into "messages" table and then on each customer record show those emails which are related to that customer via a portal based on a relationship between, but what I can not figure out how to do it is that the portal would show but types of emails those marked as "from" emails and those marketd as "to" emails. So far I have created a relationship between Customers::email ------- Messages::From and the portal would show all "from" messages. If I would set the relationship as Customers:email ------ Messages:To, the portal shows all "to" messages, but what I am trying to make is a join portal that would show by date both "from" and "to" messages, then I plan to make a Conditional Formating saying that if Customers:email = Messages::From then all text in blue, and all text in green when it is TO.
Is this something that can be achieved?
Thanks a lot for any tip,
I have done some research on this but cannot make headway so any help would be much appreciated!
I am currently thus:
• Using FM 13 pro advanced to create a runtime solution for use on Windows 7 PC
• All well apart from when I go to a script to send an attachment by email... "email client not found" comes up...
Tried setting the default email client but it doesn't show in default programs in Win 7
Incidentally this system I created works ok in Mac! (but it won't be used on a Mac so...
Many thanks in advance,

Yesterday, I tried to move a script that creates a PDF ( and mails it ) to a server side script, as the "save records as PDF" script step is now supported in server side scripts.
It did not work correctly, and generated an error 800 (file could not be created on disk) in the server log. Rather generic error.
I changed the script to point to a blank layout instead. No more error. A nice blank PDF was created.
I put a text box with "test" in it on the layout, Arial 12 point. -> error 800
I removed the text box and put a png graphic on the layout -> OK
I put a text box in a font that I was sure of the server did not have -> OK!
I tried this several times, 2 several fonts, and the results and errors were consistent. So if during the PDF creation, the server replaces the font reference by its own replacement font reference, it is able to save as PDF. If a reference lik "Arial" is used, it fails and the server reports the generic error that it can not create the file on disk (800).
I'm using MacOS 10.12.4 as client and Window Server 2012R2 as the server. Maybe there is a cross platform issue here? As always, more testing is required.
Can anyone confirm similar issues? Any workarounds that are known? Any thoughts and insights?
I have several reports that use Google Charts displayed through a web viewer to display a "'gas gauge" type of chart. This is a very popular style for our dashboard reports to the point where it is a requirement.
I originally started using them in FileMaker 14 and they worked great. When FileMaker 15 came out they wouldn't work at first but then did after an update to the code.
I'm now testing Filemaker 16 and they're back to not working properly.
They do display on the screen just fine but if you try to print preview, print, or Send to PDF they do not show.
Does anybody have experience with this or know if a setting changed in FMPA 16 that could be causing them to not print?
