  • 1. Using a pool of numbers only once?
    Hi, I have an Asset Management DB Ie been creating with FileMaker Pro7 and it turning out real nice. There are several relations that feed a central display DB. What I trying to do now is link in my Software Library DB with the Asset Management. I already have the relation created but I don know how to limit the use of Software Serial numbers. In the Software Library I have different titles and many serial numbers. When a Title is added to an Asset I want to be able to select from the remaining unused Serial numbers. Then when the same title is added to another Asset the previously used Serial number is no longer available. This way we make sure no two computers are using the same Serial number/Key as another. I guess another way of asking the same question is how to create a pool of numbers and allow each number to only be used once. Thanks, ~Ben
  • 2. Data separation and scripts FM 8 adv. Win XP
    I've started playing around with FM 8 and I would like to recreate my solution (13 files ) using tables instead. 2-3 files with multiple tables each and ONE file for the interface. I'm I right, when I understand that the scripts should be in the data files. The interface file should contain only layouts to display the data ??? If someone could clear this up for me ??? Thanks Claude
  • 3. Creating a Due date
    I have a fundraising solution working with pledges and contributions in filemaker 8 for windows. I want to create a field that holds a date that is 2 weeks from the date they pledged. So i can create a script that will search for all dates in that before today and it will automatically send out my reminders. For example: If Joe blow pledges to 25$ on 10/20/05 I want to know in another field if 14 days have transpired since the date pledged. I also want one for 30 days out to send a second reminder. Then I can use this calculation to create a script to find all entries between 14 days earlier and 30 days and then another for 30 days or more. my guess is this equation could go about 2 ways I could find the date and then add 14 days to creat the new field... or I could just create an equation that would subtract 14 days and them 30 days from today. Which would be easier and what would the easiest solution be. Scot Dunnachie

Host not displayed in local host section...

Postby Batfastad » Sat, 13 Dec 2003 07:14:19 GMT

Our filemaker server used to be listed in the hosts dialog in the local
hosts section.
Then I messed about with some network cables to get our macs working on
the network better.

Somehow everyone got disconnected - not sure how as I didn't go near
any of the PC workstations network cables.

Now I have to manually specify the IP address of our filemaker server
to get it to show in the hosts box.

Anyone know what I've done and how I can sort it out?

1."local hosts" is empty; must use "Specify Hosts"

We had a slight network meltdown this morning, from which we have
recovered 99%. The only issue is that users are having trouble logging
onto FileMaker Server.

We're running FMS 5.0 on Windows Server 2003. Clients are running FMP
6.0 on both Macs and PCs. Prior to the "meltdown," users are not able
to access the server by going through Open > Hosts > Local Hosts. The
Local Hosts screen is blank. However, if we add the local IP address
under "Specify Hosts," everything shows up fine.

I realize this might be more of a networking issue than a FileMaker
issue, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Our network is very simple. Everyone's on the same subnet. The router
assigns DHCP to clients. DNS is controlled by our Small Business

Other services running on the Windows Server/FileMaker Server are
accessible (file sharing and printing).

Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?


2.onstat -g sql output - host variables section


I thought that the variables listed in the "Host variables" section
aligned with the fields given in the "Current SQL statement" section
located just before the "Host variables" output. But, as shown in this
example, this does not appear to be the case. I looked at the values
in the actual table and they do not match up.

Here is the onstat -g sql 113 output:

Current SQL statement :
  select * from txchgdef where txchgdef.txch_mt_sw = ? and
    txchgdef.txch_ar_cat = ? and txchgdef.txch_prop_id = ? and
    txchgdef.txch_year = ? and txchgdef.txch_list_no = ? and
    txchgdef.txch_chg_def = ?

Host variables :
   address            type       flags
value                                    I added this part
   0x0700000037d08038 SMINT      0x000 1                       <--

   0x0700000037d08158 SMINT      0x000 2010                 <--

   0x0700000037d08278 CHAR       0x000 020600000089E <--

txchgdef.txch_chg_def    <-- OK

And here is the relevant section from a dbaccess screen that shows the
actual values and which fields they belong to:

txch_mt_sw         1
txch_ar_cat        20
txch_prop_id       020600000089E
txch_year          2010
txch_list_no       2144
txch_chg_def       TAX

3.Deleting hosts FileMaker server host IPs.

Is it possible to delete FileMaker server host IP addresses in the
FileMaker client software that are no longer being used?
Which file has these settings?

4.[Info-Ingres] Stack dump on auditdb - good host vs bad host

Hi Everyone,

I have two hosts, both running: II 9.0.4 (a64.lnx/105)NPTL + patch 12343
                  both running: Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)

If I create a brand new database(call it bowtest).
Checkpoint it turning journaling on.
Then execute: auditdb bowtest -b`date +%d-%b-%Y` (ie. Today it will
give: auditdb bowtest -b26-Sep-2007)

One host is perfectly OK with this command. 

The other generates the frontend error: 
Wed Sep 26 10:53:02 2007 E_DM904A_FATAL_EXCEPTION       A fatal error
has occurred in the DMF Facility.

And in the errlog we see a STACK TRACE message:
::[                , ac874200]: Wed Sep 26 10:53:02 2007 Segmentation

-----------END STACK TRACE----------

I've checked the on both hosts with both a simple ls and sum
-r and they are identical.
The LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the same on both hosts.

On the bad host if I do auditdb '#c1' bowtest the output is OK!

The problem also occurs on all the existing databases in the bad host as
well. It also occurs on a secondary installation I put on the bad host.

Anyone got any ideas?
