I'm working in FileMaker Pro 11.1 and I don't have OnFirstWindowOpen available for selection. What version do I need?
You should download the free updater to update to the latest release of FileMaker 11.
In FileMaker 11 and earlier, you have the same option in File Options for performing a script when the file is opened. It's just not called a "script trigger".
Yes, I found the File Option and attached my script there. But my database sign-in STOPs being required. I must have my users sign in to view specific record sets. I need both a beginning script to run and verification of user/password. Is there anyway to accomplish both?
There are three settings in File Options for FMP 11:
1) Specifing an accoung name and password so that file is automatically opened with that password
2) Specifying script and layout for when file opens
3) Specifng a script for when file closes
You can select 2, without changing the settings for 1.
