Question asked by ashore_1 on Sep 5, 2011

Summary

FMP 10.3 running on Lion Server 10.7.1 - field with drop-down list erroneously blank

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

10.3

Operating system version

10.7.1 Lion Server

Description of the issue

Multiple file project ran fine on dual G5 machine running 10.4.11.  Upgrade to 10.7.1 Server and when clicking into field with field control set to drop-down list, populated with values from a field within the same table, it is now blank.  Worked fine displaying values from the field when running on 10.4.11.  When a machine remote opens this database that is running FMP 10.3 and MacOS 10.4.11, the field populates and displays correctly.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Switch to layout with global field that displays drop-down list of values from a non-global field in this database.  Click in the field

Expected result

Should see a list of the values in the records of the non-global field so that the user can select one and it will be loaded into the global field.

Actual result

field display is blank.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
