Summary

Merge Field showing field name instead of actual data

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v3

Operating system version

Mac Yosemite

Description of the issue

Having a table called Vulnerability with a field called "name". When placing the field in a Merge Field, it does not display but shows <>. Seems to be an issue with this very database, which I created over the past couple of weekends. The problem persists with other fields and other layouts as well.

When placing the field on the layout as a "proper" Field, it displays correctly.

Recovered the DB. Emptied all the tables, re-entering the data. No change, i.e. same problem.

Expected result

Merge Field showing the actual value of the field.

Same database has the same issue when opened with Version 12 on the PC.
