Summary

Database does not create related records when specified in a relationship

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FP12

Operating system version

MacOS 10.9

Description of the issue

This should not be complicated; two tables, Bulk Lots and Specimens, are related by an indexed text field, PCGSNo.  The definition of the relationship specifies creation a new record in the related table through this relationship.  This does not happen.  It is not clear at all to me why this does not work, as I have been able to do this in other contexts, and wonder if other users have encountered inconsistent results with this feature of the program.

Steps to reproduce the problem

The relationship is created; a new record is created in one table.

Expected result

A new record should appear in the related table containing the matching value in the related field.

Actual result

No new record appears in the related table.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None
