Find fields aren't there
I am using filemaker 8.5 on windows xp and when I went to open it today none of the find fields will highlight to do a find. Anyone know of a solution?
Are you performing a find by hand, clicking a button or ...?
In other words are you
Entering find mode,
Entering search data
Performing the find
or are you clicking a button that does some of this for you?
Try double checking your pen settings and conditional formatting if any.
Also try creating a new layout and see if you have the same issue.
"This seems to have just started this morning after running updates last night. "
What kind of updates? Operating system updates, Database design updates, New data added to system or ?
Our Internet tech says it was an explorer secruity update. It is happening on two computers in the same office but the other one works fine. I will check those settings and get back to you.
In otherwords it was an operating system update. It seems very unlikely that such an update would produce the change you are describing.
It sounds like you are attempting to perform a find on either a different layout than what you usually use for finds or that the layout itself was changed in some way. It's hard to narrow it down much further without actually inspecting the file in question.
Back at this again. Unfortunately this is on all her files and it isn't just the find fields it is when you try to enter a new record too. If you open a new record and start typing it doesn't show up but then when you hit tab to go to the next field the typing shows up. It is like the borders aren't on but I can't find anywhere to turn them on. I hope you can help me???
