    Drop-down calendar error



      Drop-down calendar error


      FileMaker Pro


      Advanced 11.0v3

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

      Description of the issue

      The drop-down calendar attached to a date field is showing a date repetition in every singe october month of a year. The dates which repeat itself correspond always to the saturday and sunday of the third week of october. Look at the screenshots. Could it be system related, and why I haven't found any description of this raw error?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a date field, place it in a layout and set the "Include icon to show and hide calendar" for the field. Go to every october of a year and verify the saturday and sunday of the third week.

      Expected result

      To see saturday and sunday with the same date.

          Alcides Braga,

          Thank you for your post.  I apologize for the late reply.

          I am unable to replicate this issue; what I did was:

          1. Create a new file FileMaker Pro Advanced on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

          2. Place a Date field on the Layout and set it to "include icon to show and hide calendar" in the Inspector.

          3. Check the third week in the years 2012, 2011, 2010.

          The dates appear in my test to be correct  -- that is, not duplicated.

          Please let me know what I'm doing differently than you.

            Nor can I replicate it in Windows XP.

            Perhaps it is related to either system settings (DDMMYYYY) or the language version of FileMaker?

            What language is shown in your screen shot?
