    Export file then open fails in FM11



      Export file then open fails in FM11


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OSX 10.6.4

      Description of the issue

      If you create a scripted export, option to export as FileMaker file, option to show dialog turned ON, option to auto-open the file turned ON, the exported file will fail to open under some circumstances.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      If you press return or click the  "Export" button in the Export dialog in less than two seconds, the export will succeed and the file will open. However if you wait longer than two seconds before pressing return, the export will succeed but the file will NOT open. If you write the script to export but turn OFF the show dialog option, the file will open.

      Expected result

      Exported file opens.

      Actual result

      Exported file does not open.
