      Summary

      Change of Table Name: one more inconsistency

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11v3 Advanced

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.6.7

      Description of the issue

      I recently changed the name of a Table and its occurrences in multiple files. It used to be a Print Preferences table and is now more general. So I changed from "PRINT_PREFS" to "Preferences". I'm aware that a definite issue happens if the Table name is used in a Script Parameter. I've found another area: Custom Menu items' "Override default behaviors"/"Item Name". For one item I use: ""Print Sub Sheet" &" "&"("&GetField ( "Preferences::Printer_Color" )&")"" so the item in the menu displays as "Print Sub Sheet (Epson . . .)". The Calculation was originally "Print Sub Sheet" &" "&"("&GetField ( "PRINT_PREFS::Printer_Color" )&")". After changing the Table name to "Preferences" the calculation did NOT UPDATE and the menu displayed "Print Sub Sheet(?)". I had to edit each Print command in this Custom Menu to correct the Table name.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      As above

      Expected result

      The calculation should update the Table Name as every other calculation would.

      Actual result

      No update. Name must be manually changed.

      N/A

      Workaround

      See above, although it's not a workaround, just a "redo"
