      Summary

      FileMaker Go and External Data Sources Issue

      Product

      FileMaker Go

      Version

      14.0.1

      Operating system version

      iOS 8.3

      Description of the issue

      FileMaker Go v14 is failing to open an external data source when the data source is setup like this:

      fmnet:/*/Contacts
      fmnet:/100.200.300.400/Contacts

      It returns an error 1 (user cancelled action) and does not open the external file, even though it is hosted on the specified IP address.

      If I remove the first file path it then works successfully.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a file with an external data source to a hosted file and include 2 file paths in the following format:

      fmnet:/*/Contacts
      fmnet:/100.200.300.400/Contacts

      where 100.200.300.400 is the IP address of the FileMaker Server.

      Then create a script that includes the Open File script step to open this external file.

      Expected result

      External file is opened successfully.

      Actual result

      Error 1 (user cancelled action)

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Error 1 (user cancelled action)
