FileMaker and Image Maps in a Web Viewer

FileMaker and Image Maps in a Web Viewer | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Software, although continuously improving sometimes loses capabilities that were in older packages or versions.

For a long time, I have wished there was a better way to tie an image map to data in FileMaker, something I saw demonstrated a long time ago.

Backups and Preventing Computer Disaster | Cimbura.com, Inc. Tech

Backups and Preventing Computer Disaster | Cimbura.com, Inc. Tech | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

...

A few years ago, I (Tim Cimbura) was called for the first time to help an organization access a database that held all their critical business information including thousands of contacts and donation amounts over several years.

I went through many troubleshooting steps in an attempt to recover their information. Unfortunately, the database they needed was nowhere to be found on any of their computers or any of the CDs they had labeled as backups.

I did extensive work to attempt to recover the files but they were really gone.

To this day, I don’t know if the files were intentionally destroyed by someone or if they were deleted by accident.

In any case, more than 5 years of information was gone for good! They had no reliable backups.

I felt awful for them. Usually, I get to play the hero when I go in to solve a technology problem.

In this case I could do nothing and so I sadly delivered the bad news “Everything is gone.

About all I can offer you is a hug… and possibly some counseling.

I truly hope you’re able to keep your job.” I can do amazing things with technology, but I couldn’t perform this miracle resurrection of data from nowhere.

I share this story as one example of how backing up can help to insure that your business or personal documents are not at risk.

You should have a healthy fear concerning the loss of your computer documents because there are two kinds of computer users: Those who have lost information and those who are about to.

Every week over 140,000 hard drives crash in the United States.

Fortunately, for myself, even with great backup procedures in place, the most I’ve ever lost was a few hours of work.

The scenario went like this…

I couldn’t find the critical file. My hands started to sweat. My forehead got hot and then the bottom of my stomach fell out. “No…No…No!”…or if you’re not so self disciplined…swearing follows.

I’m not being overly dramatic.

That’s what happens.

The fact is that computer hard drives fail.

Most hard drives are still mechanical devices.

It’s a question of when, not if.

Time marches on with software. Keeping up with the latest version of any software can be a delicate balance between hardware, operating system and the actual software.

Migrating From FileMaker Bento to Airtable

Migrating From FileMaker Bento to Airtable | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Over the past few months, I (Tim Dietrich) 've received a number of emails about Airtable from users of Bento.

 

Bento is (or was, rather) a personal database application for the Mac and iOS.

While Bento was discontinued by FileMaker back in September of 2013, apparently quite a few people are still using it.

 

The emails that I've received ask whether or not Airtable is a possible alternative to Bento.

The answer is yes, and getting data from Bento into Airtable is surprisingly easy.

 

In this video, I show you what's involved in getting data from Bento into Airtable.

I show you how to export data from Bento and use it to automatically create a new Airtable base. I then show how you can adjust the new Airtable base to make it as efficient as possible to work with.

 For more information about Airtable, and to take it for a free test drive, https://airtable.com/invite/lG3sCDrX

Windows 10 and FileMaker / WordPress - Cimbura.com, Inc. Tech

Windows 10 and FileMaker / WordPress - Cimbura.com, Inc. Tech | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Windows 10 was released yesterday (july 29) … and for many people it is a FREE upgrade so the temptation is great to upgrade right away.

 

Take a moment to consider what this might mean for you.

 

Breath deeply, slow down, and read on.


Can I use FileMaker with Windows 10?


The official supported Microsoft OS versions for FileMaker Pro 14 client are:

 

Windows 8.1 StandardWindows 8.1 ProWindows 8 StandardWindows 8 ProWindows 7 (SP1) Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium

So our first recommendation is to upgrade to the latest version of FileMaker…version 14.

There is no guarantee that any versions prior to 14 will be fully compatible with Windows 10…but we are sure that FileMaker will update FileMaker 14 to make it compatible because it is their current shipping product version and Windows 10 will soon have a presence in the market due to its cost.

 

...

 

For sure do NOT use Windows 10 with FileMaker Server.

FileMaker: Export to Excel with custom column names | Clickworks

FileMaker: Export to Excel with custom column names | Clickworks | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
How often did your customer or your boss come to you with this question: “I want an Excel export from FileMaker, but I want readable column names and not the mess you usually put in there!”.

 

As long as the export is not of too much of importance, you turn your head away and hope for time doing its work and make the request magically fade away.

But if the export is an important feature of the FileMaker solution, this will come back, and then you need to come up with something clever.


Yes, we have a problem!


The point here is that FileMaker uses its field names as column names in Excel exports.

Philadelphia FileMaker Expert IT Solutions demonstrates how FileMaker Pro integration with SMTP servers can send email without interacting with a user's desktop email application.

Since all major cell phone carriers allow text messaging from an email account, we can configure FileMaker to send text messages directly from the FileMaker solution.

In this video we'll take a look at how to send automated text alerts from FileMaker using a free gmail account as an SMTP server.
