Omitting the first record places you onto record zero


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.9.4

Description of the issue

Omitting the first record should put you onto the next record, the new record number 1. Instead it puts you onto record zero, it decrements the found count but does not omit the record.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Generate a found set using a search or Show All records.
Go to first record
Omit Record

Expected result

Expect to be on record number 1 in the modified found set

Actual result

The record count is reduced by one.
The omitted record is still visible.
The current record number in the status bar is zero
get(RecordNumber) returns zero
The omit record command has no further effect, it can be selected repeatedly with no effect.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

no error is returned


After deleting a record from that file the issue disappeared and cannot be reproduced.

Prior to deleting a record the issue was reproduced every time without exception.
