I've been religiously saving backups as I develop. My main file just crashed and wouldn't open again, advising to Recover. Rather than Recover, I switched to one of the backups. I received a message that the backup was damaged and wouldn't open. I tried a backup from another date and got the same message. There's no way each backup is damaged, as… (Show more)

At some point during this process, which happens very quickly, the… (Show more)

Situation: There are two tables; ORDER and INVOICE. Invoice have a field called INVOICE DATE. This may have a value or not. From Order I want to create a relationship that returns all Invoices with no Invoice Date. (I don't want to use a Filter, because I need to have a "real" relationship between the two.)   Problem: AFAIK there's no way to… (Show more)

Hi everybody...   Stupid question here. I know in the past, before FMP 12, it was possible to use an application that would replace the admin user password. This allowed a person to access a database as an administrator, and make changes if the password was lost, or even worse, would allow an unauthorized user to make changes and lock out the… (Show more)

Hello all, I have a valuelist that contains textvalues starting with "CD", like "CD3", "CD5", "CD19". This same Valuelist also contains textvalues that do not start by "CD" (but that may contain numerals), like "TRAIL-R1". I'd like to derive a list based on this ValueList in which all the "CD" containing values are placed up front, ordered  by… (Show more)
