Summary

damaged file message, record cannot be delete, date field ?

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.2

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.4

Description of the issue

A client had an error message pop up saying "file damaged".  Everyone else is working fine within the file.  Everything appears fine except that we now have one record with ? marks in every field and the record cannot be deleted.  In looking back at the record in a saved file, the original date for the record was 10/12 but the email confirmation (pdf file) of the data says 10/19. Clearly, there may be a problem with the date field. Interestingly, if I search for the set of related records (that is, if I search for all records associated with this client), this record does come up. Does anyone have any idea what might have caused this problem and what the best remedy is to remove the record ?

Workaround

Put in new data.
