Got a real strange issue....
My button bars look fine, slightly offset, but fine on the desktop version... But as soon as I look on FM Go, one of the text boxes just floats away? - I have tried moving it around and changing the size and i just get the same issue but with different buttons?

When exporting XML as fmxmlresult.xml when does FilMaker populate the content of the layout attribute?By ggt667
When exporting XML as fmxmlresult.xml when does FileMaker populate the content of the layout attribute?
Usually it looks like
<DATABASE DATEFORMAT="D/m/yyyy" LAYOUT="" NAME="Menu.fp7" RECORDS="51" TIMEFORMAT="k:mm:ss "/> Yet sometimes it looks like this
<DATABASE DATEFORMAT="D/m/yyyy" LAYOUT="menu" NAME="Menu.fp7" RECORDS="51" TIMEFORMAT="k:mm:ss "/> Then again when querying the XML RPC it always look like this
<datasource database="Menu.fp7" date-format="MM/dd/yyyy" layout="menu" table="Menu" time-format="HH:mm:ss" timestamp-format="MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss" total-count="0" /> Asking the question myself, answering the question myself as well. Checking the following checkbox populates the LAYOUT-attribute of FMPXMLRESULT

I have Tableau 10 (64 bit) and FileMaker Pro Advance 15 (32 bit) . I am on a Window 7 platform, system type 64-bit.
I want to use my FileMaker database as a data source for Tableau.
Q1). Do I need to re-install FileMaker pro advance 64-bit version?
Q2). So I'm thinking that I need to install the 64 bit ODBC drivers on my PC, right?
Q3). the FileMaker website does not have the version 15 odbc drivers on the download page. Do I used the version 14?
Any help will be appreciated.

I would like to see if anyone could help me to verify if the problem I am having is a bug in Filemaker. I have recently upgraded my network from Filemaker 13 to 14. In 13 I did not experience this issue. It seems that in Filemaker 14, when a particular Hindi character is pasted into a Filemaker field it crashes the database. I have tested this on numerous machines within my network with the same result. I am hoping that someone will run this simple test for me and report back if it happened to them as well. I just need someone to create a database, create one text field. Create a new record and paste this Hindi character in that field. Then do a find and place your cursor in that field. At this point the database should crash. If anyone can confirm this I would love to know, thanks!
Hindi character: क्स्ड (I will also attach a text file with the Hindi character in case something messes up when I post this...)
