Bugs with Database Design Report


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.8.5

Description of the issue

Hello there,

There seem to be some bugs with FileMaker Pro Advanced's Database Design Report. The DDR is yielding incorrect information in the "Fields" section of the Report. Specifically, the incorrect information is showing up in the column entitled "In Scripts".

For example, take a look at the attached screenshot.

The field I've circled is called "Record Locking Field Check". The DDR says that this field is being used in 4 different scripts. However, this is incorrect information. The field is only being used in ONE (1) script, which is the script that I've pointed to with the arrow.

If I look at any of the other 3 scripts in the "Scripts" section of the DDR Report, the field is visibly NOT being used within those other 3 scripts. Furthermore, the DDR does NOT list that field in the "Fields used in this script" section which falls underneath each script.

So, in other words, the DDR is showing CORRECT/ACCURATE information in the "scripts" section of the DDR, but it is showing INCORRECT/INACCURATE information in the "fields" section of the DDR.
