      Summary

      "Set Next Serial Value" Script Step Not working

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12.0v1

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.7.4

      Description of the issue

      I have a script that zeroes out fields utilizing Auto-Enter Serial numbers (next value). I run this to cleanse a db before releasing it. The script step "Set Next Serial Value" no longer seems to work.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create script with "Set Next Serial Value" step. Specify target field. Enter calculated result as number. For this example, I use 1.

      Expected result

      "next value" value should read 1.

      Actual result

      1342, or whatever number was the "next value" parameter.

      Configuration information

      Mac OS X 10.7.4
      FMP 12.0v1

      Workaround

      Go into "Manage Database" and manually reset the Auto-Enter field options.
