Summary

Export Problem

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FileMaker Pro 11

Operating system version

Windows 7 Home Premium

Description of the issue

FileMaker stops working when exporting.  I have used FileMaker 11 for a year now but am having a continuing intermittent export problem that I have had since Day 1.  I have it with all of my FileMaker databases so I believe that it's got to be a program problem rather than a problem with a specific database file.  I get the message:

"FileMaker has stopped working.  Windows is checking for a solution to the problem."  (FYI, I have Windows 7)

Then in a few seconds, I get the message:  "FileMaker has stopped working.  A problem caused the program to stop working correctly .  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." 

The only option I get is to close the program.  It does not matter what kind of file -- .csv, mer, whatever -- that I export. 

FileMaker opens the file again okay from scratch.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I go to "File", "Export", select a destination and file name and then click "Save".  The messages then pop up.

Expected result

An exported file.

Actual result

The "FileMaker has stopped working" message.
