Filemaker 17web direct lookup

Hi all,

I've spent years avoiding learning FM, but my boss, who has created an application for offset printing management for in-house use has asked me to get the application working on FMS17 web direct. We're still in early stages, and I have no idea what I'm doing, so it's all going according to plan.


We're stuck with an issue of lookups that work as expected using FMP, and FMGO, but fail when trying the same thing under WD. For instance we have a field called 'press_minimum_charge', that depending on the value of a dropdown field will update its value from another related table. (see attachment)  As I say, this works as expected from everything except WebDirect.


I'm not sure what to do, or how to debug using FM as I'm more of a PHP/mySQL guy, but if anyone could give me a nudge in the right direction, I'd be extremely grateful.
