I recently made a trip out to Seattle to visit with clients and coworkers. Being from Nebraska, I tend to jump on any opportunity to visit a non-landlocked area (Nebraska is the only triple landlocked state in the US), so I decided to come out early and spend a few days riding my bike on the Olympic peninsula. But more on that later.
Recently, we had a client request to export their FileMaker solution into CSV files with field names. The solution had a sizable number of tables, though doable manually, it inspired me to look for a more automated method. Much to my dismay, a script or module that fit our needs did not present itself. But I learned quite a bit about FileMaker exporting in the process.
Portage Bay Solutions is now certified in the latest version of the FileMaker Platform, FileMaker 18. Kate took the certification exam recently and successfully passed, adding version 18 to her growing list of 9 FileMaker certifications.
I’m sitting in the Hyatt, Orlando International Airport, just having finished a slice of key lime pie while I wait for my flight home from the annual FileMaker Developer’s conference, FileMaker DevCon to those of us that have been attending for years.
The process of updating FileMaker files in iOS has always been sort of a question mark, with multiple ideas for how to best accomplish it, each with their own limitations. At PBS, we developed a process to update files in iOS a number of years ago, but we’ve updated the process with some of the newer FileMaker 18 features that make the process more seamless, while altogether giving it a more native look and feel.
