Show All Records malfunctioning


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS 10.0.3

Description of the issue

1.One of my layouts (the one one I use for entry of all data) exported as spreadsheet to GO.  The problem only occurs in one file.

2. Show All Records button and pull down does not work in any layout in that file. Other files not affected.

3. In entry record, only one record shows at a time in any FIND set. You can go to another record in window or with slide. In Preview, it returns one page of records. On opening it can access all records, but shows only one.

Creating a copy of layout doesn't clear problem, nor does copying and changing and saving copy.

4. In other layouts, multiple records do show.

Don't know if this is related, but it happened at same time.

5. Entry layout exported to GO lost formating and turned into a spreadsheet. Other layouts not affected

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open the file to main entry layout.

Expected result

Full functionality of tools.
Scrollable display of all records.

Actual result

SHOW ALL is grayed on toolbar and pull down in all layouts.
Only one record shows in one layout, others show all.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message.


none. Other than to not use that form, which is a serious issue in many case of searching records.
