Hello Hamidou, whats the error you are getting and what version of filemaker are you using?

The Google new API uses frames, if that's the error you are getting, use this script.

<style type='text/css'>
html,body {

frameborder='0' style='border:0'
src=' mp;q=" & Latitude &" , "& Longitude & "&zoom=15'


where latitude and longitude are varibales.

Hi Robinson,

Thank you very much for prompt reply.
I am using Filemaker Pro advanced 12.1.

When I am using the script, nothing happens and seems it doesn't work .

Does this script work for several coordination as the same time?
