               Thank you for your post.

               I currently do not have FileMaker Pro 11 to test on Windows 7.  With that said, I am unable to reproduce this issue in FileMaker Pro 12 and FileMaker Pro 13.

               Does this issue occur for you only with this one file?  That is, if you create a new file, save a Find, duplicate the find, rename, etc., does the issue still occur in FileMaker Pro 11?  Before locating FileMaker Pro 11, I'm trying to determine if this a file issue or a FileMaker Pro 11 issue.

                 How quickly we loose track of older versions...wink

                 I cannot replicate this in Windows 7/Filemaker 11.0v3 Advanced.

                 I did the following test:

                   
            1.           I entered find mode and specified a date and a line item description on a typical "invoices style" layout with line items in a portal.
            2.      
            3.           I performed the find and it found one record.
            4.      
            5.           I then saved the find, duplicated and renamed the find.
            6.      
            7.           I then tested both saved finds, doing a show all records between each selection of a saved find.
            8.      
            9.           Both the original saved find and the renamed duplicate found the same single record that I found when I first manually performed the find.


                 Please let me know if I did anything differently from what you are doing.

                   I just got access to a Windows 7 machine with FileMaker Pro 11, and I'm still unable to replicate the issue.

                   Please let me know if you are able to replicate the issue with a new file.

                     The issue occured on one workstation, but I can't replicate it on new file or different client. We have to investigate if it depends on search criteria.
