  1. Not missing a step; missing a concept. You cannot do what you want.
  2. You will be invited if somebody thinks your contribution will be worthwhile.
  3. Hooray! Begone, thee vile app window!
  4. Your Windows version meets requirements? http://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-pro/pro-16-specifications.html
  5. Your example does not show that; and it is hard to tell whether you are using an extension in the file name.
  6. Did you actually try a different file name?
  7. You will find the sentence more or less randomly included in help for specific design functions in previous versions. Rolling it up to a single blanket statement within the higher level Design Functions topic seems like a good idea. It seems clear to me that this is how it is intended to work; these are all old, unchanged functions. YMMV, of course.
  8. It IS documented; but the topic has been elevated appropriately within the help structure. Look under the Notes section within the general Design Functions topic. •If you specify no filename (""), functions return results for the current file. As mentioned. That's what DOCUMENTED means.
  9. Help seems to be inconsistent on this subject across versions. The referenced statement exists for ValueListNames help in previous versions; and these functions began in FM6. And it continues to function correctly.
  10. Actually it IS documented. See FileMaker help, example here for ValueListNames. "If no parameter is specified for fileName, FileMaker returns results for the current file."
  11. "Doesn't work" means what exactly? Also: for current file you can use ValueListItems ( ""; "quarter" ) Also: what exactly is the current file name - you are using non-recommended characters?
  12. No. It should be an extremely simple problem and should work in all those versions. You are leaving out or wrong about some simple detail. Also; you mention a loop; but nothing about your solution uses a loop (yet). But the first step should work. i suggest you post your file or post an actual copy ( screenshot ) of your script.
  13. Nor are we. It works perfectly. So you're done, right?
  14. That is a very strange expectation. Why would FileMaker need to say anything specific about a third party product? And if FileMaker said in general that all plugins are compatible; why do you think this requires us to conclude "except this specific one over here."
  15. What makes you think that result isn't accurate?
