    Database design report



      Database design report


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OX 10.10.3

      Description of the issue

      When running a database design report (as HTML) you will receive an error.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1) Create a new simple database.
      2) Locate a graphic file (anything that is compatible with FileMaker) and name that graphic file anything but include an ampersand ("&") in the name.
      3) Insert the graphic into your test file
      4) Run the DDR as HTML

      Expected result

      The report should run without displaying an error dialog.

      Actual result

      You get an error dialog that complains about the entity name.  See below.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      SAXParseException: expected entity name for reference (Occurred in entity '/Volumes/Marc/var/folders/tb/2j9fk6nx13l_yhx4rfgwsfsc0000gn/T/FMTEMPFM4672_34.tmp', at line 73, column 26.)

      Configuration information

      Use FileMaker 14 to replicate.  I think it works fine using FileMaker 13.


      Delete the graphic in FileMaker
      Use graphics with names that don't include an ampersand in the fie name.
