? marks in all fields - indexing issue!


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

ipads using both OS6 & 7

Description of the issue

3 times in the last month, my Go users go into a record to input a timestamp and they get an error that says "record cannot be modified" then all goes blank with ? marks.

I can't reproduce the problem on the fly.  How do I fix this permanently?  I recognize that the interim fix is to taking my system down and move the data to a clone.  But I don't want to be doing this 3 times/month. A rare instance is not so bad but this is too frequent for comfort.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The record cannot be modified.

Configuration information

User will click a button that inserts the Current Time into a timestamp field.  The field is indexed.


None that I know of.
