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?

You can try a program called 'unlocker'. if that doesn't work, then you could try renaming the file.

Deleted/missing client details


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. 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!

Layout/Printing issues


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!

Filemaker Server 8 can't open file


Hi Jermia,
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.
