Troi Automatisering releases Troi Text Plug-in 2.8.1 for FileMaker Pro 8

Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands, January 27th, 2006--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of its Troi Text Plug-in 2.8.1, for FileMaker Pro 8.

What is Troi Text Plug-in?

Troi Text Plug-in is a very powerful tool for for dealing efficiently with text in your FileMaker Pro database. It adds the following functions to FileMaker Pro:

  • Combine sets from 2 text fields:
    • get all lines that are the same
    • get all lines that differ
    • and other combinations
  • Get (unique) lines and sort words and lines
  • Make a text sum from a related file that even updates without a script
  • Parse XML text into fields

New Features

With the the release of the update of FileMaker Pro 8.0v2 the original syntax of the SumText calculation is now again working properly. As the original syntax is more general we strongly recommend to use this syntax. The download of Troi Text Plug-in 2.8.1 contains the recommended syntax.

Troi Text Plug-in 2.8.1 has these improvements:

  • Changed the SumText examples back to the original and preferred FMP7 format.
  • Merged BookIndex.fp7 and Pages.fp7 into one example file.
  • Updated user guide and FileMaker Pro 8 Conversion Note.
  • A few bug fixes and corrections to the example files.

Troi Text Plug-in 2.8.1 also runs with FileMaker Pro 7.

Suggested Uses

  • Create an index for a book, which is updated automatically

  • Receive client information in XML format and parse it easily into your database
