      FM9 Server with Later Clients

      Your post

      Can FM PRO 10 Advanced and FM Pro 10 be used through the FM 9 server without any loss of new FM10 features? How do you think the same question will be answered when later versions of FM clients become available?

          Client specific functions will be okay. Anything executed by the server such as new functions called in a server side script will not be compatible.

            Is there such a thing as a list of those new functions called in a server side script? What is an example of a function called in a server side script? I'm foggy on what you are saying there.

             

             

            By the way sorry about the double post. I see now that you moderators oversee all forums at the same time. I did not visualize it that way; thus did a double post.

              Thank you for your post.

               

              FileMaker Server has the ability to run a FileMaker script.  However, there are several script steps that cannot execute.

               

              When editing a script, in the bottom left corner, there is a pop-up below "Show Compatibility".  Change the pop-up from "Client" to "Server", and the listing of script steps will display differently.  The grayed out script steps are not available for a server-side script.

               

              If you need additional clarification, please let me know.
