When you say...need to input multiple alpha numeric serial numbers and print the reports..., do you mean you need to find certain records then create a report? Are these static serial numbers or dynamic?
How is your report layout set up?
All I know is we have a database full of part numbers with associated serial numbers. So I think these would be dynamic. I am in a bind since our admin is not communicating with the users on how to create multiple reports. All we get is a pop up that only allows us to input one serial at a time.
Thanks for your reply.
Do you have Admin (full access) to the file?
Unfortunately no. I guess my question should be. Does Filemaker Pro 13.0v4 have the capability to allow input of multiple serial numbers and create reports?
Thank you for your reply.
Yes you can allow multiple serial numbers to be inputted to create the report, but without knowing what the report layout looks like in layout mode, and what script is attached to create the report, it would be hard to give you the best solution. Without getting too personal, what's up with the admin that either wont create this feature, or is just missing in action.
You may be able to do this manually, if you can go to the report layout, enter find mode, and be able to enter a string of serial numbers into the field. It's rather clunky and time consuming, and you may need to sort the records also.
Are you completely unable to create/edit scripts, or go into manage database, or edit a layout?
BTW, you have to understand that most developers would never give you this access, but they definitely should create/modify a report or feature for the users needs.
We have very limited admin rights. No ability to edit layouts or run scripts. The answer to "what's up with the admin that either wont create this feature, or is just missing in action." is a mystery to us atm. ;)
Thank you for your reply. I will relay this to our manager.
