Import Script with better Error Handling

    Since way back in FileMaker history we can Import Script from another file. There is many things that go wrong and therefore I would like a Error Dialog to appear with all problems that occurred during the import or showing me that all things went well.


    Example of errors that would be good to know about after import script


    Table Occurrence that did not exist

    Missing Custom Function

    Text that have been commented out /* Calculation */

    Missing plugin function



    The list can be long. This would make it easier to find errors in the script. Besides showing me the errors in a dialog I would appreciate if the errors where printable so that I could check them of my list one by one.
