We need more info. How have you designed your invoicing system?
Does it follow this typical pattern?
Describe how your layout is designed to list multiple parts. Is this a list view, table view? Did you use a portal?
What version of filemaker are you using?
I haven't reviewed any of your previous posts, so I'm not familiar with your setup. However, a typical Invoice system prints from the InvLineItems table. Sounds like this is what you're doing. The structure of that layout is Header Part (Customer, InvID, Date and the titles of the line items section); Body Part (as tall as the fields in it. PartID, Desc, Qty, Cost, Ext.); Trailing Grand Sum (totals); Footer.
Hi Phil + bcooney. Many thanks for your posts. I opened up a new invoices section yesterday and just copied the layout so that mine was exactly the same. It seems to have worked for now and still don't know how I managed to change the original so drastically. Is there a way you can have multiple users on the system but only the admin can make changes to the layout? Does everyone else find this program over complicated or is it just me!?
Hi just a quick question,
Are you able to create quotes with filemaker (pro 11)? If it is possible, are you able to then convert the quote to an invoice?
To answer your quick question. It is possible to do that with filemaker.
I really can't help you any further than that as I have no real idea as to how you've constructed your database.
Did you start from a template file from filemaker? If so, which one and which version of filemaker are you using?
