Instant Web Publishing


We are setting up a new members log in area on our public website As part of this area we would like to make our library databases available. We originally set up 3 databases in Filemaker 5 and have upgraded over the years. I tried out the instant web publishing and it seemed to work i.e. the links to the 3 databases appeared in the web publishing page and the databases are accessible. However, on closer inspection, I discovered that one of my searchable fields, (which is working fine in the database), is not working properly. The field text box has an arrow to the right which makes it appear like a drop down menu, though its not. Also, it won't let me enter any text into the box for searching. Therefore, the search facility is not working. I have looked at the actual database and that particular field is working. I have looked at the set up of the field and can't see anything wrong with it. Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem could be? Our databases are on a Mac OS X version 10.5.8. Thanks.
