FmPro Development Service - Existing Projects - Title Graphic

Even without completely redesigning existing database solutions, many types of improvements can be completed economically. Sometimes these projects involve using FileMaker Scripts to copy records from older non-relational database structures to relational tables. Existing layouts can be updated with new functionality. Data recovery can also be attempted on older unsupported files which can’t be recovered with the Recover feature.

Relationship Graph  ODBC Data Transfer  xmCHART Plugin Example

black bullet Creating Charts From FileMaker Data - Using the highly acclaimed xmCHART FileMaker plug-in, FileMaker solutions can be developed to create charts and reports. FileMaker scripts are used to update FileMaker database records from an external database to create charts and reports at the press of a button.
The result: Reporting tasks which would normally take hours to perform manually are completed in less than 60 seconds.

black bullet ODBC Data Transfer - .com Solutions has extensive experience with ODBC connectivity for 9 different database servers on multiple platforms. Data may be imported into FileMaker or retrieved from FileMaker via ODBC on MacOS X or Windows. Experience with a wide range of databases has been invaluable for development projects involving ODBC connectivity. Each database has its own unique techniques which need to be used to insure a successful implementation.

black bullet Dynamic SetField() Technique - FileMaker 8.5 introduces new functionality which allows layout objects to be referenced by name. Database fields can now be filled with data by referencing a layout field by its object name prior to using an empty SetField() script step statement. Since a field doesn’t have to be directly referenced in the FileMaker Script, this technique enables fields to be specified in a dynamic manner.

black bullet Electronic Document Filing - The popular Troi File plug-in (www.troi.com) has been utilized to implement electronic document filing within a FileMaker CRM solution. A wide variety of documents including Statements, Invoices and user-generated documents are automatically filed, listed, opened or saved electronically across the network to a documents server. Documents are automatically filed according to client file and subcategory onto the documents server from both MacOSX and Windows computers.

black bullet Temp Table Usage - Sometimes, you only need to store information for a short period of time. This technique can be used to reformat information suitable for reporting. Once the report has been generated, the contents of the temp table can automatically be removed, in preparation for the next reporting cycle.

black bullet External Development Environments - External development environments include Perl, AppleScript and the Revolution graphical development environment. LiveCode is used for the development of the FmPro Migrator and FmPro Worksheet products.

black bullet Project Documentation - Substantial development projects are generally quoted to include printed and electronic versions of a user/developer manual. A typical manual includes configuration, theory of operation diagrams, user oriented instructions, troubleshooting and reference information. The reference section includes relationship graphs, and detailed table, layout and scripting info.
