    crash on export



      crash on export


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      When exporting records that are stored in an external file as well as data related to those records, FileMaker consistently crashes.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      create a file with two tables related to each other. Create a second file and add the two tables from the other file to the schema. Export records from one table and related data.

      Expected result

      exported records

      Actual result

      FileMaker crashes

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      doesn't get that far; just dies


      The records must be exported from within the file where the database is defined. Unfortunately, this hampers data separation.

          Thank you for your post.

          I don't have immediate access to a Windows 7 computer, but I was unable to replicate the problem on a Windows XP (SP3) machine with FileMaker Pro 11v2.  This is what I did...

          I created a database file, local.fp7, with two tables: local and local2.  I related them by a text field "ID".

          I created a second database file, external.fp7, and added the text field "ID".  I added local and local2 to the relationship graph and related them all by "ID".  In the export dialog box, I include the fields from local and local2, and I am successful with the export.

          Do you have access to another Windows machine not running Windows 7?  Or, can you provide more detail in your instructions so I can try to replicate the problem easier when I do have access to a Windows 7 machine?
