Field contents go blank when exporting


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.6.8

Description of the issue

When exporting selected records sorted by name field, with the name in the first field in the table view, the first field goes blank in the exported file when the same name repeats.  The first time the name appears, it is present but the name fields under it are blank until the name changes.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Find records according to a criterion.  Select a layout.  Export to htm file.

Expected result

The name field should be filled with data in each cell of the exported file in a table layout.

Actual result

The name field is blank under the first time the name appears.  When the name changes, the name field is filled again.  When there is only one record for a name, there is no problem, only when the name repeats.  For example, I often have the same name with more than one address, with a separate record for each.  The result can be seen at

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error messages.


None.  I looked for a setting that could cause this problem but didn't find any.
