Updating To DayBack 9.75

Please back up your file before making any changes.

If you haven't already, navigate to the "Settings" tab in the calendar sidebar and click "Account Settings". Click "Check For Updates". This button should change to "Install Update" and inform you that version 9.75 is available. Click "Install Update".

To update the necessary script, begin by downloading the latest version of DayBack here:

You should follow these instructions if you have done the embedded integration or the linking integration and you don't want to perform the integration all over again.

Normally our updates don't change so many FileMaker Scripts (most don't change any scripts) but this version adds some new features and bug fixes that are specifically related to scripts. We apologize for all these changes, but they're worth it.

The Changes

Update the following script in your current DayBack File (Your file if you have done an embedded integration), but don't delete the script itself. Rather, use the "Select All" command to select and delete the entire contents of each script, then copy/paste the updated contents of the script from the new version of DayBack into the corresponding script in your DayBack file. You may get an error when opening both files at the same time. This is expected and you can just say "OK" to those errors before continuing. Here is the script that needs to be updated this way:

"Export Data To Temp Directory (FileName ; Data)"

Finishing Up:
Close the new DayBack file you used to copy the script contents from.
Change the build number recorded in the database. Navigate to "File -> Manage -> Database" then go to the "CalendarInterface" table. Change the "BuildNumberCalc" calculation to read "9.75". Click "OK" to save those changes.

Then please run the "Upon Opening" script in your file. This will ensure all of the new settings load properly and the calendar loads with the correct data.

That's it, enjoy DayBack 9.75.

Hi Anatole,

Thank you for reaching out here on this. However, I'm not exactly sure about the issue you are experiencing, since the changes for this update do not any filtering scripts, or other scripts you may have modified. The only script that should be changed in this update is "Export Data To Temp Directory (FileName ; Data)".

Did your Status filters in the Filters tab of the sidebar appear to reset? If so, try fully quitting out of FileMaker and re-opening your integrated DayBack file to check if your Status Filters are restored. If you keep the other copy of DayBack open when doing the update, the calendar settings of the two calendar files will conflict with one another, so your file's settings my appear to have been lost. This should not be the case if you close the new copy of DayBack you downloaded, and then run the "Upon Opening" script in your file.

Let me know if that helps.

All the best,

My apologies - you are quite correct. The Filtering is back as we had it now. Thanks
