Some FileMaker Menu Items Become Unavailable


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.7.3

Description of the issue

Again, I can't pinpoint what makes this happen.  I'm running FileMaker on the Server, and every once in a while, the Scripts menu (and possibly other menu items), which were previously available, become unavailable.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open a database in FileMaker Pro Advanced that is hosted on FileMaker Pro Server.

Expected result

I can access the Scripts menu.

Actual result

The Scripts menu is grayed out.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Configuration information

FileMaker Pro Advanced 12 database, hosted on FileMaker Server 12 Advanced.


I have to stop the FileMaker database, move it out of the FileMaker Server/Data/Databases folder, upload it again (using the "upload" button in the FileMaker Server Admin Console), and reopen it.  Then I can see the Scripts menu again.
