    FMP9 hangs when trying to export file to Excel

      Summary

      FMP9 hangs when trying to export file to Excel

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      9.0.3

      Operating system version

      Mac OS 10.8

      Description of the issue

      Problem: when trying to export a FMP9 file to Excel using Mac OS 10.8, the export hangs.  After forcing FP9 to Quit, the original FMP9 file is corrupted and can’t be reopened.  I get an alert message that the “file is in use” (though it obviously isn’t).  Thank God I have backups.  I’ve exported such files for years, so this exporting problem is new.  Any thoughts?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      This has happened several times with all files that I tried to export from.
