how can i revert filemaker pro entries?
2 hours ago the contents of a text field in a database were replaced with the same identical sentence for each and every record. I DIDN"T NOTICE THAT ANYTHING WAS HAPPENING !!!!! i was zooming into a image at that moment to be able to read some scribbles on a photo more easily. when i returned to regular 100% filemaker view all data in the text field had been replaced in that field for 2117 entries.
if there is no auto-recover or history function in filemaker pro I will have lost at least two weeks of intensive database work. if not more.
the revert and undo options are not highlighted.
are there really no auto-save or recovery-copies made in filemaker pro - in 2014 ????!!!!!
in emergency moments like this an "UNDO button" or "AUTO SAVE every hour function" would be highly appreciated!!!!!!
i work with FilemakerPro12 on a MAC OS 10.7.5 - i am NOT on a network because i am working on the database, reparing faulty entries and adding new material. (BUT: i was online when it happened).
Do you save and keep regular back up copies of your file?
That should be SOP for any DB of anything more than "hobby" level importance.
You also need to figure out how/why this happened in the first place or you risk having it happen again.
