FileMaker Pro 19.1.2 crashes when creating a Database Design Report


Recommended Posts

As there isn't a thread about this I thought I'd post about this annoying bug as it affected me and I thought I had a corrupt db.

The issue seems to be that when editing layouts with certain summary parts in FileMaker 19.1.2 it changes the way that the layout is configured, so that a DDR created in FileMaker 18+ (at least) crashes FileMaker Pro and fails to create the DDR.

Some points from my testing:

  • Creating a DDR without selecting 'Layouts' works fine.
  • 'Save a Copy as XML' works fine.
  • It seems that running Recovery or compact/repair in 19.1.2 also introduces the issue. I don't know if running this in 19.0.1 fixes the issue but worth trying.
  • Claris are aware of the issue and have stated that "The FileMaker file is not corrupted in this case and you can continue to use the file without issues".

The workaround is to rollback to 19.0.1 on any machine used for development and rebuild any layouts edited in 19.1.2 (deleting all objects and pasting from a backup worked for me). Also a recovery might work in 19.0.1.

Filemaker 17.  I formally ran DDR's with ease.  Now I get several error messages and no report, one says the name is too long.  Shortening the name does not change the result.  I can get a summary of the DB but clicking on Tables, etc. yields nothing.  Any ideas?

Are you using FileMaker 19.1.2 to access this db at all?

If not then this is a different issue and you should start a new thread for it. Also might be worth testing it with 19.0.1.

      In list view my fields extend off the available screen area.  In Layout Mode the Top Navigation part scrolls to the right together with the Body part, BUT when I exit Layout the Top Navigation part does NOT scroll when I scroll to the right in the Body part.  How do I keep the Top Navigation Part in line with the Body Part?    This is thoroughly disconcerting as my field labels are all in the Top Navigation Part, but the fields are in the Body Part.  The two do not align as I scroll to the right.  Any suggestions would be gratefully received.  
      Problem Solved - I should have put the labels in 'Header' rather than 'Top Navigation'.  Now the scrolling works

      Does anyone know how to do this? calling the "generate as configured" script stacks the script that gets called after the webveiwer is set at the end of the primary script, there for only the last record in the found set of the loops actually has the image file created and saved to the container field.

      Recently converted a FM application from V6 to V19.  The application will run on FM server.  Very new to FM19
      Questions related to temporary path
      I have scripts that exports data to 3 temporary fm12 files.  Two of the temp files hold data that is them imported to other files and one of the temp files holds data for a lookup in another file.
      dhistory imports data from dtemp
      rhistory imports data from rtemp
      vendors looks up data from vtemp
      The temp files are fm12 files
      Questions
      1.  I would like to have the temp files sent to the temporary path on the users computer.  I have not been able to correctly specify the output path to send the temporary files to the temporary folder on the users computer.  This is one attempt: get(temporarypath) & dtemp but this does not sentd the file to the temporary folder
      2.  Once I get the correct syntax to save the temporary files in the temporary folder, how do I tell the import records script step where to find the temporary files?  What is the correct way to point to the file so it would work on any users computer?
      3.  Vendors file performs a relookup in vtemp, so I need a relationship between vtemp table, located in temporary folder, and vendor table.  How do I specify the location of vtemp so it can be found on any users computer?
      Once the script finish running the temporary files are no longer needed and it is my understanding that the temporary files will be deleted when the Filemaker session is closed.

      Hi All,
      Just had a look at the new Add-ons in Fm19.
      Is there a way to make the timer work in reverse.
      i.e. Start from a field (Timer::TimeLength) that a user can input, so that the specified time of say 30:00 will run down to 0:00
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Regards
       
      Milton.

      I am trying to script an import of three worksheets in the same Excel file. The 3 geographical regions worksheets are not structured the same, i.e. field name rows are not in the same place and are named differently.
      The script runs but stops to ask which worksheet to process.
      How do I create a variable/parameter in the script for it to proceed sequentially from worksheet 1-3 without stopping?
      Thanks
      DA
