Filemaker 9 crashing

Filemaker 9.0 that has been working, without any problems,has begun to crash every time it starts up. This is in a mac G4, 10.4.11 with 2 GB of ram. I loaded a new version & it continues to crash at the same point in its startup.

    Thanks Hawk, I have tossed the application & reinstalled it twice with the disk. The software is registered & payed for. Still fails after attempting to start up. Even after starting up from a disk with a working copy of FM9 it fails at the same point.  
    BTW I was playing with it today & I found that the old filemaker 7 software works fine & opens the newer databases that I have been working on. I was under the impression that that wasn't possible.

Check if you have the appropriate specification to run it; try uninstalling and then reinstalling or running a troubleshooter if you have got the correct specs.

Sometimes software locks up due to not been activated, did you activate the product.

Hope this helps!

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!

Every time I open Bento 2, it hangs and says that there is an unexpected problem (which I have reported). After the beachball has spun for a while, the programme reponds again. What it has done in the...


Launch Bento from another user account on the Mac and see if that clears the problem. If so, there is likely a problem in the Library/Preferences folder in your own account. You could try deleting the preference file Library/Preferences/com.filemaker.bento.plist
Also try deleting (or moving, if you want to be cautious) Library/Application Support/Bento/bento.bentodb

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!

Can only print one label when I set up Avery Labels


Hi. Look at the label contents. I believe the top corners of the group is touching the header. Meaning it should only print 1 time.
Make the content smaller and be sure it is inside the body area.

With blank DVD/CD computer crashes


My computer used to do this until I installed more RAM. Seems those video writing programs want to hog all the system RAM which causes the crash. I have at least 1 GB RAM minimum in all my computers. Hope this helps.

Half of the page disappears


Hi, Sorry to hear your having problems,
Well, if you save and quit then re-open the document, is the text back ? Or is it Gone Gone Gone.....
I suspect that the text is there.....
Which means it is a simple redraw problem. A redraw problem on a Mac happens when the processor on the Mac is overloaded and is no longer able to provide the necessary processing power to display the necessary elements fast enough. Also, if you have a machine with shared Ram as Video Ram, this could be a very common problem...
So, what Mac Model do you have, Speed, Ram and Disk size and available space.
If this is the case, it's not a major problem, you just have to make sure you don't run too many apps at the same time, like no other application running when you are in AppleWorks.
