    Some URLs produce a false 507 ( validation ) error on Insert From URL



      Some URLs produce a false 507 ( validation ) error on Insert From URL


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      Sometimes when doing an Insert From URL using field data, you get a 507 ( Value in field failed calculation test of validation entry option ) even though there is no validation going on in the table or the file at all.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a new file with three fields, URL, Result and error.  Create a layout with all three fields on it.  Add a record, and put the value :


      into the URL field.  Create a script that does three things :

      Set Error Capture On
      InsertFromURL - using the URL field, into the Result field
      Set Field [ error : Get ( LastError ) ]

      Run the script.

      Expected result

      There should be a result in the Result field and no error.  If there is a legitimate error, then 507 is not it.

      Actual result

      507 errors despite the fact that there is no validation in the table at all.

      Configuration information

      I've got a sample file of this, but it's fairly simple to recreate.  I've had this same error intermittently on other urls, but this is the first time I've been able to find a url that does it repeatedly.


      None available, this error can't be resolved as far as I can tell.  And because the error code is wrong, it's almost impossible to diagnose.
