    Data not displaying (but the records are still there)



      Data not displaying (but the records are still there)


      Hi there!

      Pretty new to filemaker (so knowledge is limited).

      Having a problem! I have data bases that are grouped by years for example 2008/09 there are sub databases that feed of the main data base again sorted in general by year, this information feeds into a 'home page'. Problem is on one on the database years has suddenly became faulty. The information on the 'homepage' is not showing! The records are still it still tells me there are records (the correct amount of records) but nothing is displaying in the fields. The sub databases are working and displaying. How can I make the information redisplay!

      I am a complete novice at filemaker and just maintain the databases, but did not build it, I know how to do basic amendments and operational adjustments ! So need help thanks!

          Is each "database" a different file?

          What version of FileMaker are you using?

          How are the "databases", I'm guessing these are tables, related to the "homepage"?

          What are you looking at that tells you that the "correct amount of records" are present? The numbers in the status area at the top or side of your screen or is this data displayed directly on the main part of your layout? (This makes a difference as this count could be telling you how many records are in the "homepage" table or how many related records are in the "sub database".)
