Change of storage setting modifies record

Question asked by Crispin on Nov 20, 2012


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
