I am having an issue with getting an Import process to work on Filemaker Go 14. All I want to do is to be able to send (update) records to a Source file on the laptop from Go and be able to receive updated records on GO from the Source file. I want to learn this before I take on the Sync Process.
Source File runs on FMP 14
Target File runs on GO 14
I am following the process listed in the Filemaker GO 14 Development Guide (pg. 7) titled “Importing to and from a transferred file”. I have tried both examples listed and I have gotten Example 1 to work fine (Import to GO from Source file on a laptop). Example 2 is what is not working (refreshing Source1.fmp12 on the laptop with records from Target1.fmp12 on GO).
MBP OSX 10.11.5
iPhone 5S 9.3.1
Network: Wireless Apple Airport Extreme
I have a simple file named “Target1” that I placed on Go. I have an exact duplicate file named Source1 on the laptop.
On Go: I have opened Source1.fmp12 remotely on Go from iPhone per guide instructions. I activated the Script listed in Example 2. I receive Error 3 [Command is unavailable (for example, wrong operating system or mode)]. However, if I place both files on the laptop and activate the script it works as desired.
Allow User Abort (Off)
Set Error Capture (On)
Show All Records
Set Variable $Fpath Get ( DocumentsPath ) & "Target1.fmp12"
Import Records ($Fpath ; Update matching; Mac Roman
Set Variable $errorSource Get (LastError)
Show Dialog $errorSource
What Part of This don’t I understand…? I am sure there is someone who has “been there and done that!” that might be able to tell me where I am going wrong.
