Product and version:  FileMaker Pro Advanced

OS and version: macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Hardware MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)


The attached file contains one table with one record. An attempt to export this record as an XML ends in Filemaker stopping to respond.


How to replicate:

  • Open the file
  • Choose File/Export Records...
  • Choose a name, location and type: XML. Click the Save button
  • Choose FMPXMLRESULT, no XSL style sheet. Click Continue...
  • On the left, choose Current Table ("FUE") and Move All fields to the right. Click Export

Filemaker stops responding and the only way out is to kill the application.
