      Description of the issue

      I've developed a Music Publishing database in FMP 10 and have been using it for some time now.  I've done a lot of updates on it lately and have imported my catalog over to the new database, however, when I click on "New Record" instead of a new empty page, it gives me all of the information from the last record except for the song title.

      I'm totally lost as to what to do about this problem.  Can you help?
      Thanks,
      Smokey

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Click on "New Record"

      Expected result

      I expect a blank new page, instead I get the last page with everything on it except the "Song Title"

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None

      Configuration information

      No

      Workaround

      No

          When you imported your data into the new copy, did you perhaps forget to update an auto-entered serial number field's "next serial value" setting? (The next value setting could be less than the largest number in the data you imported here.)

          If so, your new record may be generating a new record with a serial number value that matches to existing related data and this might explain what you describe here.
