Summary

BUG: FileMaker Server can't search reliably on unstored calc fields

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13.0v5

Operating system version

OS X 10.10.2

Description of the issue

We are running FileMaker Server 13.0v5. About once a week, it returns INACCURATE SEARCH RESULTS to the users, whenever they are using FileMaker Pro to search on an unstored calculation field in a database that is hosted by FileMaker Server. Our ONLY SOLUTION is to restart the entire FileMaker Server machine. This is a very dangerous bug, because the users DON'T KNOW if FileMaker is returning INACCURATE search results to them or not. What use is FileMaker if it can't even perform a basic search? Even worse, as of this week, FileMaker Server completely froze when a user was trying to search on an unstored calculation field. What can we do to get the FileMaker engineers to investigate and fix this very serious & very urgent bug? We really need this fixed. It looks like this bug has been going on for at least 2 years, but the engineers still haven't looked into it yet: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/c339cb7697?commentId=321020#321020
