  1. Just wanted to let you know, a random person in Japan was helped by the "save record" suggestion 12 years after this discussion! Cheers and thanks!
  2. Thanks! I'll give it a try. Hmm, I am exporting everything to XML using that FMPXMLRESULT and no style sheet. When I try to import it I get another error. Any ideas what I should do?
  3. Hello, all. I've got a fairly simple database I use for creating tweets for social media, but it's clearly got some damage, as I occasionally get a "color wheel of death" followed by "can't write data" errors, followed by a long random string of text. Quitting and reloading the database makes it work again for another 30 mins or so, but it's frustrating. Following Filemaker's advice, I tried saving a compacted version of the database. But when I use the database, I get new problems, like the error below followed by another dialogue that says Error -1700, which doesn't seem to exist. Specifically, in the compacted version (and ditto if I recover the database, which I also tried before), my Applescript below causes an error, because it can't access the field "time" in the database, although this works perfectly in my non-compacted, non-recovered database). tell application "FileMaker Pro" tell database "socialmedia.fp7" set theTime to field "time" of current record end tell end tell So, can anyone tell me what to do? Remaking the database from scratch is something I'd like to avoid, but I can't see any better choice for the moment. Is there any way to export or copy/paste fields and paste them into a fresh database? Anyway, thanks for any help you can offer!
