That's bit too vague.
What do you mean by "don't work"? How do they fail?
What kind of "calculations"? What type of validations?
The biggest difference in data entry difference between web publishing and a normal FileMaker interface is that the data must be submitted back to the host before calculations evaluate and a new record can link to other records in your database.
First of all thanks for the quick response to my problem
I will try to explain. Say i have a layout that has 4 fields. 1rst field (name) 2nd field (last name) 3rd field asks if (the patient had previous cancer).
4rth field (kind of treatment). I have a calculation here that if the answer on the 3rd field is no(previous cancer) then automatically the answer on the 4rth filed is (no treatment). when i work in my normal filemaker interface on my pc, when i say (no previous cancer) and i press enter or tab the 4rth field is automatically entered as (no treatment). When on web publishing and working form another pc with my browser, this calculation dont work.
even if i submit the data nothing happens.
i hope i made it easy for you to understand my problem.
Thanks in advance
There's more than one way to set up that 4th field. Exactly how did you set it up?
on the 4rth field named "specify cancer" i put the above calculation.
Case ( Previous cancer = "no" ; "no treatment"; Previous cancer = "uknown" ; "Missing")
So when i input "no" to the filed "previous cancer" and i press enter or tab automatically "no treatment" is entered to the 4th field
And is this a text field with an auto-enter calculation or a field of type calculation?
If a field of type calculation, was "Text" selected as the result type?
Pressing Tab or Enter, BTW, does not commit the record and in IWP will not submit the data back to the server.
I look at what you told me and i can tell you that.
1)the 4rth field is not a text is a number. actually it takes number "888" instead of "no treatment
Case ( Previous cancer = "no" ; "888"; Previous cancer = "uknown" ; "999")
2)i changed it from number to calculation and it works but not when i press tab but only when i submit the record.
Is there a way to work when i press tab or enter?
Thanks for the help
I have just found that the 4rth field has other values too that now that i have changed the field into calculation they don`t appear.
only the value "888" appears if the answer in the 3rd field that asks if (the patient had previous cancer) and the answer is no=0.
But no other values are selectable. Like if the answer is "yes" ->1, to the 3rd field, then i should be able to select another answer to the 4rth field other than 888. Now that the 4rth field is type calculation i can not select anything else.
Sorry for the way i am trying to describe the problem but i am new to FM
And again i `m very greatful for your help.
The user will need to submit their data by clicking a button that commits/submits the data before they will be able to see the needed results. I think you'll need to go back to your auto-enter settings if you have other values that need to be directly entered into the field.
