What is the nature of the validation?

Do you not see a "Revert Field" button?

The validation is set to allow specific values from a value list and not empty..

No, there is a script running which advises of the error after the alert appears, When you click OK,  the screen returns to the entry box but then freezes and does not allow further action. All functions are frozen.

Sorry I did not receive any response to the first post so renamed and posted again.

The problem did not happen on client's computer but did reoccur when file transferred to my laptop running Windows 7 and FMP 18.

      I currently spend about $60 per month to a company that hosts my FMP 14 databases on a shared server.
      How complicated would this be to manage on my own?   I am not interested in hosting sites for anybody else, just those for my own company.
      What kind of dedicated computer gear would I need to make this happen?  Would I need to have a dedicated IP address?
      Can this be done by a rube like myself or would it be better to continue paying someone else for this work?

      How complicated is it to migrate solutions written under FM Pro 14 to FMP 18?
      Will I need to rebuild them from 14 to 15 then 15 to 16 etc?

      I am reworking my process of using FMP server side script.
      Run Server Scheduled Script every 45 minutes Log in to FTP get directory listing (plugin / curl) Create Record for each file in listing Fetch file via (plugin / curl) to text field Write file to server's Document folder Move file on FTP to sub directory (compete) Import files from document folder in to table It works but think kludgy and FMS probably requires more overhead to deal with the FTP plugin.
      Is there a way to do the following
      Run a server sequence script every 45 minutes Run a bash script on server login and fetch new files from ftp (need help with this) Save files to FMS Documents/incoming Run script that gets incoming files Run script that imports files Run script that moves files to complete directory Run bash script with file listing as parameter (need help with this) Bash script logs in to FTP moves files to complete folder on FTP OR DELETES them (need help with this) I am hoping this would be much more efficient for FMP to only have to do file imports vs having to also FTP. 
      Thanks SD
