Filemaker 11.0v4 - Random Error Message Loop


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue


After years of using FM with no problems, suddenly last week, a persistent, seemingly random bug has been driving me crazy.
I'll spend an hour or two entering data and at one point, when I hit the "print" or save button I get a message that says "Please choose an existing Agency for this transaction."
Once that happens, the program won't let me do anything. Not even Quit. And, of course, there is no problem with the "Agency" in question.
I Force Quit, Restart the Computer and still the problem persists. I then leave the computer alone for a week and the whole cycle starts over.

Any ideas?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Enter information into fields. Click "Print" (save).

Expected result

Transaction is created and added to database.

Actual result

Error message.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Please choose an existing Agency for this transaction.


wait a week.
