Deleted Value Lists


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

A duplicated a database for modification to suit the current FY was created. All text fields that imported over are fine.

The issue is related to fields that are assocaited with value lists. After the duplication all value lists have been removed from the duplicate database.

I am able to create new value lists unique to the database and use them for layout formating and to capture data.

However, once the database is closed (Filemaker Pro can still be active) all of the newly created value lists vanish and cannot be recovered.

I've tested building the value lists on a computer with Windows Vista, knowing that both Vista and 7 are incompatable with Filemaker Pro 8.
