Fieldnames function problem


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X.5.8

Description of the issue

We run filemaker server 11.3 on a Mac OS server 10.5.8. Filemaker server is up to date.

My personal computer is running X.6.8. I made a db solution using script triggers and functions. On my computer it all works just as we want. I uploaded this onto the server and it is not working. It seems that the function not working is

FieldNames ( Get (FileName); "SearchFields" )

Even if I hard code the Filename it does not work.

I spent some time on this because I thought it must have been something I did but have proved that this is so. The db not working on the server works when I copy it and put it on my desktop.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Downloaded searchfilter form here as the sample:

Works on my computer, works when uploaded onto server.

Yet mine behaves the same way. Works on my computer (Filemaker 11.4)
Does not work hosted by server 11.3.

I know this means I must be blind but I have looked and looked, saved a compacted copy and on and on.

Expected result

To see a list of field names

Actual result

an empty box
