      Filemaker 10 Hangs Up

      Description of the issue

      Filemaker 10 Pro Windows 7 Shared File Filemaker application hangs up and task manager (Ctr Alt Del) has to initiated to close filemaker I have 1 Global field in the body of a standard layout (not columner\) along with many other Globaland normal fields.This Particular Global field is duplicated  3 times on the same layoutEach duplication has a unique script trigger which runs the script on the field exitWhen one of the duplicated fields is entered Filemaker hangsSome functions work such as menu drop downs but the cursor cannot be movedout of the field it is "stuck in"There is no way to exit except ctrl alt delI found that I could use my application for some time 1 or 2 days without the issue arisingbut I have now taken out the duplicated fields and I am using only the one global fieldwhich triggers one script. This script now chooses the correct subscript dependant on the text entered to the field So Far So good  Mike

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Although you can have more than one instance of a field on a layout, it is generally not a good idea.  Your method of having one field and selecting the subscript based on the entry is a better method.

           

          If you should run into this issue again, please include the script triggers that cause the crash.
