    Change of storage setting modifies record



      Change of storage setting modifies record


      FileMaker Server



      Operating system version

      OSX 10.7.5

      Description of the issue

      When I changed the setting of a container to store data externally the change caused each record's modified timestamp field to indicate the data had been changed. It had not! it is just where you are storing it on the server. This may sound trivial but in my case caused many iPads to be resent 650 MB of identical graphics over 3g. At the very least I should have been warned in the message!

      Expected result

      no update of modification timestamp

      Actual result

      changed timestamp


      Turn off modification update before making change then back on afterwards
