A file corrupt message: This script cannot be found or has been d
We use Filemaker through Frameready, by Softtouch. The message reads: ''This file cannot be found or has been deleted. We can see the file it has been restored but filemaker will not open it.
One of the files that makes the invoices, is corrupt and filemaker is not recognizing it. We restored it successfully through Frameready. We think it is Filemaker that has the file locked up. Can you please advise?

Many errors surface soon after you install new hardware or software because conflicts often occur between the new product and previously installed components. To put an end to such messages, you might be able to uninstall the program or hardware (and hardware drivers) and then restart your computer to an errorless state.
If you do find that removing a new product eliminates errors, you might have to do some research to figure out the source of the conflict before you can reinstall the new product. Check the manufacturer's Web site for updated drivers, search support areas for known conflicts, and contact technical support for assistance. Sometimes tech support gurus can help you tweak a setting to end software conflicts.
Let it finish. Developing new computing habits can also limit the number of error messages you see. When you first start up your PC, let the hard drive come to a complete stop before starting a task; this lets your computer load all necessary drivers and operating system components necessary for efficient and error-free operation. The same concept works for your other programs. Let each program start up or shut down completely before you move on to another job.
It is most likely because you don't have scripts enabled. Try this first.
To enable scripting:
1. Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."
2. Click the "Security" tab.
3. Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.
4. Scroll down to "Scripting."
5. Enable the following:
* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled
6. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
If that doesn't work try this:
Why do I receive an error when running Yahoo! Messenger?
You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix
the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your
C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.
To delete the directory:
1. Close the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it
running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are closed.
2. Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."
3. Click the "C:" drive.
4. Go to:
* C:\Program Files\Yahoo!
5. Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on
your keyboard. (All archives will be deleted if they are not copied.
Please see below.)
1. Close all running applications except for your Internet browser.
2. Visit the Yahoo! Messenger home page.
3. Click the "Download Now" button.
To copy your complete Message Archive:
1. Close Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).
2. Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."
3. Select the "C:" drive.
4. Go to:
* C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles
5. Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive.
Copy it to the same location on another computer if you wish to view it
Note: If you copy this folder to another computer, your complete Message
Archive will be copied, overriding the Message Archive on the computer
to which you are copying.
You should uninstall the program and reinstall it. Before you reinstall it run a spyware and anti-virus scan and make sure something isn't influencing the program, and after reinstalling it if you encounter the same issue you will have to have your registry repaired. I won't suggest any programs to repair the registry, as it is a very... dangerous thing to mess around with.
Hopefully it works after being reinstalled, it sounds like you might just have a corrupt file. It happens on windows pcs.
Sheldon, The data might really be gone. There are several reasons you might lose data with Filemaker 7 including the file being closed unexpectedly due to power failure, so the application doesn't close the file properly, or the Filemaker application unexpectedly quitting. However, the data might still be recoverable in this scenario. Under the File menu there is a recover command you can try that will create a new "Recovered" file from the current one. Additionally, I strongly recommend you start a daily incremental back up for your FileMaker database files. While corruption issue are rare, accidentally deleting a record, or information in a field, or purposeful sabotage by an unhappy employee is permanent without a backup. Additionally, a back up would provide a solution for recovering the data in the event client data disappears in the future.
I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker 7 expert (and 8, 9, and 10 as well); if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them.

FileMaker 5.5 is a long time ago for me, but I think I will try to answer your question (although it is likely you have a solution or no longer need one.) While in layout mode, while working on the layout, go to printer setup and choose the printer and page size you will be printing to. This will cause FileMaker to have a dashed line where the printer pages are on the layout. Anything that extends over these lines will require additional pages to print. Simply bring everything back in before these lines to limit to 1 page (including the blank space at the bottom of the page. There is a tab you will need to drag above the page break line to prevent a second page from printing. Additionally, if you cannot work it out, while printing from FileMaker if you choose the page range of 1 to 1, only 1 page will print, however, doing this prevents you from printing additional records without writing a script to do it. However, if you are able to redesign the layout to only print 1 page then you will notice there is an option on the print dialog box that indicates something to the effect of "Print current record" and "Print records currently being browsed" (Don't remember the exact wording in FileMaker 5.5); Choosing the records currently being browsed option will print all records in your current found set.
I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker expert for version after 7 and have used Filemaker since version 4; if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!
a bit late for the answer, but maybe it can help others...
This usually means the file has not been closed properly following a hard shutdown of the server (power outage?). It could be that the file needs to be recovered, or simply checked by Filemaker.
In both cases, you need to open the file with the client version of Filemaker Pro 8, then close it again, and the Server should happily open it thereafter. Here, we keep a copy of Filemaker client on the server for these rare occasions.
