      How to get FileMaker to Update Field with loop counter in loop?

      Post

      I was doing some script benchmarking using a test file with 500,000 names to run a script. Naturally, I wanted to get some kind of update on how far FM has gotten in a record list this large so I created a field to update the loop counter from inside the script's loop.

      Yet, regardless of what I try (refresh object, refresh window, etc.), FM will NOT update the loop counter field during the script execution.

      In the debugger it works fine.

      I also tried, as you can see in the script below to only have FM update the value every 1,000 loop iterations, but FM won't work then either.

      Suggestions?
