I have a script that is supposed to open a URL. Instead, it opens a folder on my desktop. Two script steps: Enter browse mode; OpenURL. The field that the script uses is a text field and contains the web address that starts with http://. Why should it be opening a folder? I can't find a setting anywhere to control this.

Here's the script:

  • Enter Browse Mode
  • Open URL [ Forums::ForumURL ] [ No dialog ]

ForumURL contains the email address.

What happens if an email address is not valid?

Here is what the help states:http://fmhelp.filemaker.com/fmphelp_12/en/html/scripts_ref2.37.65.html

You stated that that is an email address, shouldn’t you be using the Email Script?

The Open URL should have a http: string such as http://fmforums.com/topic/99845-open-url/#comment-454398

What is the actual URL, not the field where it suppose to be?

Again, attached a copy of the whole script, including what is in the field Forums::ForumURL

      Hello,
       
      I do want to upgrade from Filemaker Server 12 to version 16.
      At first I've wanted to uninstall v12 but cannot access to the console. 
      I get screen saying "Cannot start the Consol, managing  Admin Server not available?
      Does anyone have an idea of why I cannot start the FMS 12 Consol.
       
      Thanks!

      FYI I tried to add this to the Filemaker community page but don't think it worked hence adding here also.
      I have been tasked with creating a website for a charity, part of the website will be a searchable archive of all of their historic data. This data is stored in Filemaker Pro 12 on the historians machine.
      He has provided me with 4 .fmp12 files, I downloaded a trial version that I found here http://www.filemaker.com/redirects/ss.html?file=PRO12MAC however none of his files will open.
      The website runs on Wordpress which is php based, the database is a maria database although I am happy to use whatever method I need to get this data on to the website and searchable.
      I was expecting to open the files in the trial version, export as csv and create and import in to the maria database.
      Is this possible with filemaker, do you think I would be better downloading a trial of the latest version, will his files open ok in the latest version?
      Unfortunately I have no experience of filemaker so am struggling a little.
      Thanks for any advice anyone may be able to provide.

      Filemaker Pro Adv 12 running under Windows 10.
      Trying to "Send Mail" with two (2) attachments.  The specified attachment files are defined as $Path1 (from_map.png) and $Path2 (to_map.png).  Both files are located at C:/Users/{user id}/AppData/Local/Temp/S<n>.
      The Specified files are entered as:
      $PATH1
      $PATH2
      However, when Send Mail is activated only $PATH1 is shown as an attachment.
      Can't seem to get past this problem, help please.

      I would like to have options to enter either fields (selling price or margin) and the other should be automatically calculated for instance:
          
           Cost Price = 100 (Available)
           Sell Price  =  Calculation field or ?? Input amount
           Margin     =  Calculation field or ?? Input percentage
          
           If i put 160 on sell price it should automatically put 37.5% in margin or if i put 37.5% in margin field it should automatically fill sell price for 160.

      I have FileMaker Pro 12 installed on four computers on my network, and FileMaker Pro Advanced 12 stored on a fifth computer. There is a shared database stored on one of the first four computers. When using the shared database from the fifth computer and I attempt to check any of the checkboxes for the field Events, I see the message shown in the attachment and I am unable to check the checkbox (This behavior occurs only on the fifth computer). If I then do a search, after doing the search I am able to check any of the checkboxes in the previously problematic field. I've restarted the fifth computer and the problematic behavior stills occurs.

      Any suggestions?
