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)

Workaround
