Hello, the following is the essence of a problem I need to resolve. The code is AppleScript
display dialog "Hello \"world\" " This code needs to run in FMP18 as a calculated applescript.
Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello "world" \"]
Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello \""world"\" \"]
Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello "\"world"\" \"]
Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello \""world\"" \"]
and other permutations of 1 backslash and 2 quotation marks cause the calculation to be unsavable b/o error.
Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello \"world\" \"] results in "A identifier can’t go after this “"”." -- after the calculation is saved. (Yes, "A identifier")
Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello \"\"world\"\" \"] results in A “"” can’t go after this “"”. -- after the calculation is saved
and an error message of -2740.
Can anyone help me please?

I added security to limit the DataAPI user from accessing certain records, with the limited option. I tested this while running these files on my HD no server. Worked like a charm. After moving the files to FMServer the DataAPI account can access all record in the table all of a sudden.
Any thoughts as to why this is happening?

When I take a backup file from the server where all the databases are encrypted (EAR) the encryption password does not work. The password is the right one because it opens the server databases.
I copied the file to my own computer and try to open it with filemaker 17 and the password doen not work. Also tried to open the file on our test filemaker server 17 and also the password does not work.
Can anyone explain why this does not work?
Hi - I'm developing a business solution to be hosted on FM Server. It will be hosted on Soliant Cloud. This is my first time developing for Server. I read Steven and Wim's whitepaper on FM 16 security, which was very helpful.
In the past, when I've created upgrades to my solution, I've imported data from the previous version into the new one. Each update is a modified version of the previous file.
I read about the benefits of using File Access Protection. My solution is a single file solution so I can basically exclude any other file having access - except I'm not sure what impact that will have on import from previous versions. I assume both files will have the same ID - but not sure if that means that FM will see the older version as trusted or not.
