Database List Not Refreshing


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6.4

Description of the issue

Using Studio Manager v10 within FileMaker Pro v10.

All the database files are hosted on a machine within the same network as the rest of the office. When creating a new job in Studio Manager, one of the lists that is pulled from the FileMaker database never populates except with two entries. There are suppose to be eight in that particular list. This list is almost never modified and used for selection only. It seems to be a refresh issue with the FileMaker database in trying to use and access the list.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Launch FileMaker v10 and open Studio Manager. Create a job and then try and select items from the different lists. When the People list is opened, the entries are not all there. Only 2 exist.

Expected result

In the People list, there are suppose to be 8 entries.

Actual result

However, only 2 entries show up in the list until FileMaker v10 is restarted.

Configuration information

Several Macs on the same network with one of them being the host machine and never used for any other purpose besides that. Regular access to the host machine and database files throughout the day. Sometimes multiple machines on the database at the same time.


The only way to get the list to populate properly is to first create the job in Studio Manager and fill out all possible information. Then FileMaker v10 has to be shut down and restarted. Once everything is back up and the list has been pulled up, it is populated properly.
