    Field contents go blank when exporting



      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 http://gary.saretzky.com/photohistory/njphotographers.html

      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.
