      REAL Bug: Adding [:] in a table name, brakes MERGE FIELD relationship

      Description of the issue

      Adding ':' in the table name is not prohibited by any Filemaker warning...Doing so, all seems to work fine, except MERGE FIELD: Inserting merged field in a layout as: , continue to show  instead of the field's data ... After to have burnt my brain per hours, and pray all Gods known, I have fixed this trouble.Why I know this is a real bug?I have added ':' in some of table names of my Database, thinking to present its better later in my development.Then, all merged fields I have put in my layouts before the add of the [:] was working well, only new merged fields added AFTER the add didn't work...Worth ! Just the edition of a merged field by double-click on it, then validate it, was enough to "brake" it and show the  even in "browse" mode... DO NOT PUT ':' IN TABLE NAME
