Having Manage Database window open adversely affects scripts.


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac 10.6.8

Description of the issue

You probably already know about this from being a few Developer site discussions. If I open the Manage Database window and on of my users runs a script that has a Create New Record step, it does not run correctly. There does not seem to be anything consistent in how the db reacts, but usually at least one existing record is modified with data that was intended for the new record which was never created.

A guy on the Dev site has done some research on this and say that it also seems to have something to do with a auto-enter serial number field in the table. I can't speak to that.

Before I could work in the Manage DB window and when I was done, could ask my users to stop everything and then click 'OK and have my changes take effect. Would be nice to be able to do that.
