Hi all, Mr. Nubie here. (lol)
So here is the situation, I have created quite a complex database for work. It envolves a very detailed series of tabs with contact info, product info web pages and maps. I followed a template that seemed to fit the best for a starting point.
When searching for a contact using FMP10 on my local network it works like a charm. But when searching for the SAME contact on the Instant Web Published DB. it comes back with, "There are no valid criteria in this request. Type a valid request before clicking Perform Find."
If I know the address, or town i can find the record that way, but the initial contact (in this case "hotel name") it is at about 10% success.
To let everyone know...
I resolved the issue. I had 2 fields that were the same on the tab. The moment I deleted one of them, I could search with no issues.
