I'd like to create a cross platform runtime.   Can some provide a link to a 'Step By Step' set of instructions.   I'm not certain of a few things. Eg: When I create a win and a mac runtime, I assume I will have two separate folders (Win & Mac). Do I combine the folders? Is there a specific method/layout in the way the folders should be… (Show more)

Hi All,   Please see the attached file for example tables and scripting.   What I am trying to accomplish is to take a Customer record and create a new Lead record from it.  No biggie, as I've got the Set Variable scripting down to do that via the Customer | Detail layout.   Here's where the rub comes in...   That Customer record can have… (Show more)

This goes back to one of my earlier problems; Layout A requires a separate find from Layout B. These occurs on the same field( Status = 0(first find) and Status = 1(second find)).

I am working on a FileMaker solution that will be wrapped with the FileMaker 16 iOS SDK.

Hi Guys,   I think I have a simple question: I have a layout with only one DB where I save some records like ID number, customer name and sometimes 3 payments/payment this (I will use "-" to separate the fields) ID1 - customer name1 - payment1 -  payment date1 ID2 - customer name2 - payment1 -  payment date1 ID3 - customer name3… (Show more)

Being rather new to FM, I'm slowly learning my way around the block. I've been working on a db and it contains a number of scripts that appear to work fine -  so far. I'm curious if there are specific steps that other developers include in many of their scripts (disable triggers, Exit Script, use Set Field vs Clear, etc.) that make for good… (Show more)
