Thank you for your post.
If you are using FileMaker Pro, you can use Instant Web Publishing to have up to five concurrent users entering information into your database file. If you need more than five concurrent web users, then you'll need FileMaker Server Advanced.
For #1, it means to create a form that will be easy for your users (students) to enter in information.
For #2, you can create reports that display the results of the tests, averages, totals, etc.
This will work fine in FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced as well as FileMaker Pro 10.
Please let me know if you need clarification for any of the above steps.
First, thank you very much for your post. It is probably what I need, "simultaneous" 5 users is great.
Secondly I confess I konw absolutely nothing, zilch, nada about Instant Web Publishing. I'll check if I can find some documentation...
I hope I don't need to keep my FMP running on my machine connected to my web server all the time, since my hosting services do not allow me to keep connected to a MySQL DB, which was my first idea to do this, and conect to my FMP locally.
Anyway I'll be back here as soon as I understand a bit more about Instant Web Publishing.
If you can point me to some "tutorial for dummies" will be great!
For more information about Instant Web Publishing, you can read the documentation that came with FileMaker Pro 9, or you can view it online at:
You need is a machine with a static IP Address, and FileMaker Pro must be running for others to access it via Instant Web Publishing.
Thank you very much.
It is a fantastic tool.
Unfortunately Brazil is not well served in terms of ISPs.
NET one of the main ISPs in Brazil doesn't offer static IPs to individuals which is at least "primitive" if not mean.
Well it is not a FMP issue anymore...
