Title

FileMaker spitting back web form submissions, Macros from Word

Post

     Hello, all!

     In our system, users input information via a website which is later automatically created (and approved) within FileMaker. When/if someone copies and pastes information into the website, rather than typing it out, the form is spit back. We then have to enter it ourselves manually into the database. The error we get is the following:

     "You are receiving this Proposal information via e-mail because there was an error #958 in the submission. This is usually due to people copying and pasting information from Word files which contain macros. Please manually enter this information in the web form."

      

     Is there a way to ensure the website or Filemaker strips the form of macros before submission? Would this solve the problem? What about a more updated version of FileMaker (currently use 10)?

      

     Thanks!!
