"Set Next Serial Value" Script Step Not working


FileMaker Pro



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


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