A good example that we never stop learning. I’ve been forced to do a job using FileMaker 14 ( ), whch has led to discovering that a function released in FMP v6 can break in all FMP versions Mac or Windows depending on the way the file is named.
The file I had been given was named in the format ‘FileName v1.2.1’, I know periods are not recommended in file names, but this was someone else’s file I was adding functionality to.
Simply, the FieldNames (filename ; layoutname) function fails if the file name includes a period.
Time lost tracing this one, but richer for the knowledge. I replaced the periods with underscores in the file name and trapped for this within the startup script to prevent the client reverting.
