    Set Error Capture step causes scripts to skip following Import Records step.

      Summary

      Set Error Capture step causes scripts to skip following Import Records step.

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.6.8

      Description of the issue

      A Set Error Capture (On) step before an Import Records step, set to import a folder but with no folder specified, causes the Import Records step to do nothing. With Degbugger open the script goes to the Import Records step but, on advance, moves directly to the following step without putting up the Choose a Folder dialog or importing any records Switching SEC off, or disabling it, causes the Import Record step to behave as expected, ie pop up the Choose a Folder dialog.

      This has been confirmed in a new, text file set up with just the import fields and these few script steps.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a script with the following steps:
      Set Error Capture (On)
      Import Records (select a folder, no folder specified)
      any other step

      Expected result

      The Import Records step should pop up the Choose a Folder dialog.

      Actual result

      The dialog doesn't open, and no records are imported.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error messages.

      Configuration information

      FMPA11 on OS X 10.6.8.

      Workaround
