I would like to limit the records returned and get them in groups so I can display 20 records at a time on the page (users would click a Next button to get the next 20 and so on).   When I'm doing a PHP API find request I would use the setRange method to specify… (Show more)

I have considered possibly keeping customer's credit card numbers in my database if they ask me to, and wonder just how secure Filemaker is.  If this information is kept in a password protected file, and presuming it's a very secure password, is there any way a hacker could get ahold of it's contents either by accessing it on my computer if, say,… (Show more)

I'm new to FM.  The data that I'm working with is being imported from an Excel spreadsheet that is created through a data export from an online listing service.  Number columns appear in Excel appropriately as a number aligned to the right side of the column.  If I import to a new table in FM, the field is identified as a number.  However, the… (Show more)
