What settings are selected in File Options?
Is there a specific layout specified for when the file opens?
Is there a script set to run when the file opens?
There are no scripts made to execute during opening or closing. I have never made any changes to the file options either. It is set to "Log in using" and the "Account Name and Password is selected.
It does change record sometimes but I can't figure out what I am doing. It is definitely is not every time I save a change.
What version of filemaker?
Any script triggers such as On Layout Load or On Record Load that might be a factor? (These are FMP 10 only features.)
Filmaker 9 on mac os 10.4
FMP8, XP-(SP3 I think)
No answer from me, just supporting data for Phil (or whomever) to work with.
All of my Dbases that don't run a find on startup open the same record every time, the oldest record (first created chronologically) and the records seem to be ordered in creation order.
Those that run a find on the opening script land on the same record of the found set (first created chronologically).
I just always figured "This is how Filemaker works" and never looked further into it.
Hope this additional data helps in some way.
