NightWing Enterprises — Demo for FileMaker Pro™ 9

Batch mode replication of found records!

Duplicate Found Set

+   For FileMaker 9!   +

As a courtesy to fellow developers and potential clients, the
following demonstration file is provided for free download.

Managing sets of data is what databases are all about and FileMaker is easier than most at presenting subsets of your data according to many and varied criteria. However when it comes to the duplication of record sets, complex relationship set-ups or export/import sequences are not necessary.

This demonstration file shows a self-contained and straightforward script technique for generating duplicate records from the found set, with the option to leave the focus on the pre-existing found set, or isolate the duplicate records in a new found set (controlled by the script parameter). The method is clean (no temp files are created) and flexible, giving you control over the process. Moreover with consistent naming (ie of the Serial# field and associated layout object) the script can be re-used across multiple tables and layouts.

A variant of the technique, using Go To Related Record [match found set] and repeating the process, can be used to duplicate related sets of records (eg invoices and their associated item lines) in a single procedure.

This demo file is unlocked and password-free, compliments of NightWing Enterprises.
