    global script

    pkennedy

      So how do I make a script global?

       

      If the script is used on one client I would like it to effect the other clients connected to the server.

          By client, do you mean "user" accessing FileMaker Server hosted databases with FMPro?

           

          Can you tell us more what you are trying to do?

            Hi pkennedy,

             

            To the extent that any script modifies record data, its effects will be seen by all users. Changes to global field values, however, will only be seen on the workstation where the script runs, as will changes to user context (eg window sizes, changes of layout and so on).

             

            It's also possible to schedule a script to run on FileMaker Server, if you want it to run independently of all users.

             

            If the above doesn't answer your question, then as Beverly suggested, it might help if you tell us a bit more about what it is you actually want to do.

             

            Regards,

            Ray

              Ray,

               

              Working with a few scripts (some of them yours) and just seeing what's possible and what's not. I think you answered the question above or at least pointed me in the direction to look.
