    Text Box fields not working



      Text Box fields not working


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Windows 7 64 bit

      Description of the issue

      In a new database, file converted from Filemaker Pro 10 to version 12, some text box fields are not working. Clicking on the text box number a count is not entered.  There are about 15 text box fields on a page associated with records.  Most of theme advance the count number by 1, but a few of them do not respond.

      I am not certain that these worked OK in version 10 also.  It is a fairly new data base.

      Thanks for suggestions.

               You've posted this in the section intended for reporting possible software bugs. For assistance using FileMaker, it's better to post those question using the FM Pro Forum section. (See tabs at top of this screen.) There, a question such as this will be seen by many more people and thus will gather more and faster responses.

               Simply clicking on a text box will not modify data unless is is designed to do so via a script trigger or by setting up the field as a button so that the mouse click performs a script or script step. You'll need to enter layout mode and investigate the settings on each such field.
