Using FMPA on Windows 10.   I have a number field in a record that is empty (no value entered): Isempty(Field)  correctly returns 1 (True) Field = 0  incorrectly returns 1 (True) Field = 1 correctly returns 0 (False)   Obviously the second result is wrong since an empty field is clearly not = 0.   Is this a new bug?

Each key field is used in different relationships with different tables.   I don't understand why the design is like this. To my knowledge, one key field is used as primary key, if I need a… (Show more)

Click to view contentGood evening FileMakers,   I'm just getting my feet wet with the BaseElements (plugin, not analysis tool) and am a bit stumped. It's possible I'm using the plugin correctly, and my issues is with another part of my script.   Specifically, I'm using the BE_ExportFieldContents function.   The only way I could figure out how to call the function… (Show more)

Hi all, recently accepted a new project involving the updating of a fairly complicated multifile system that had grown over the years starting from version 3 and now had been converted over 13 to 17 with which I am working.   Found out that in one of the many database files ther existed data that seemed to originated from a table with a name.… (Show more)
