Summary

Portal filtering: <> versus  ≠ operator (not equals)

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Using the <> notation ('not equals' operator, e.g. Invoices::Status <> 3) no longer works in portal filters. It does work in other expressions, for instance in the data viewer. This is inconsistent I think.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a portal, select 'Filter portal records' and use <> in any expression.

Expected result

Not equals evaluation result

Actual result

Less than evaluation result

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No message

Workaround

Use  ≠ instead of <> notation
