MAJOR BUG in FileMaker Go 12.0.7: Can't export to .xlsx format

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

12.0.7

Operating system version

iOS 6.1.2

Description of the issue

There is a major bug in FileMaker Go 12.0.7 when accessing a file hosted by FileMaker Server 12.0v3:

A script that exports records to an .xlsx file will FAIL the export with an error message 3.

These 2 very simple script steps fail on the iPad:

Set Variable [$filepath; Get (DocumentsPath) & "Invoice #321.xlsx"]
Export Records [No Dialog; $filepath]

For the Export Records script step, .xlsx format is specified as the output and the appropriate export fields are specified as well.

These 2 steps work just fine on OS X and they work just fine on Windows, but not on iOS with a hosted file!!

Apparently, these 2 steps will work just fine with a LOCAL FILE on iOS, but not a hosted file!

Please fix ASAP!
