Summary

Ambiguous error message

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

Ambiguous error message when running a script that gives NO HELP in debugging the problem.  The error message NEEDS more specifics.
"This operation cannot be performed because one or more required related records are not available and cannot be created."
FileMaker needs to specify WHICH records are REFERENCED that are not available.  Now it's a guessing game on my part to try to figure out what is missing.

Also, the error message window gives me NO option to abort the script; I have to use Task Manager to kill it.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"This operation cannot be performed because one or more required related records are not available and cannot be created."
