I am going to be doing a mini project with FileMaker where an excel sheet is going to be distributed to bidders for some work. My plan is to then import the data from completed spreadsheets into FileMaker using Scribe.
The Excel sheets aren't going to be the most complex Excel ever but there are some special things. So, we feel we need an experienced Excel person to take care of that.
So, we are looking for recommendations for an Excel consultant who might be able to help us out.
Ideal person is:
-Based, like us, in the UK. US is OK though.
-Able to stick around for bits and pieces as we go along over the coming months (and maybe years). The project is very much a developing thing.
THANKS for any recommendations.
I am making cutom import and export from/to excel documents.
Is there any way to merge excel cells in scribe?
I can easly find out which fields are merged when importing.
two nested loops and if second col or row is empty while reading i consider it merged.
Problem is while exporting.
I need to add new rows to excel documents and keep 1 column merged for each set of rows(like in sub summary but vertical).
Thanks in advance for any help.
Have a nice day.

When updating any 360works-plug-in it is deactivated after any update. Sometimes it does not even is replaced.
I have created batch-scripts to shut off FileMaker and then remove any 360works-plug-in.
After that my user(s) have to restart the application again and the new version of (any) 360works plug-in is installed correctly and activated automatically.
I also use other plug-ins by Troi, Dacons en Goya simultaniously and these work perfectly fine and also will be updated and activated when a newer version is being installed. Only the 360works-plug-ins fail to update everytime.
I use the script-step "Install plug-in file" so nothing exotic is done there.
The problems occur on windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 2008 and 2012. On the 32 and 64 bits versions (2012 - 64-bit only)
Any suggestions or anyone else has the same trouble?
First of all many thanks to creators for amaizng plugin.
What is the syntax for inserting images to excel?
ScribeDocWriteValue ( “addImage()”; image ; page ; x location ; y location ; height ; width )
Do not work for xlsx with error about invalid cell name (first parameter is function adn for excel it seams it is not recognized) for pdf works fine as in demo expample
I tried standard syntax for excel where first parameter is table cell and second is image in container but it do not insert the image.
Thanks in advance.
I am using Scribe to extract text from a pdf. The pdf has a filesize of 705542 so it is fairly large. The Scribe result is fairly good but it has a serious problem: a space is inserted into words; see example of words like NE W YORK AND NEW JERSEY, airp orts, Inte rnational, Internat ional
Why does Scribe do this? Is there a way to fix it? (It is close to a dealbreaker if you can extract text but then not use the text that's extracted)
Many thanks in advance for your replies, as I certainly hope I can use Scribe since I've used 360Works products for years and Textractor before Scribe.
