Tools>Developer Utilities - file paths not updated


FileMaker Pro


Pro Advanced 11

Operating system version

Mac OS X

Description of the issue
(still unresolved)
Happens on 26-file solution created with Pro 6 or prior.
Problem seems to be absent in newly created files.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Open some old (converted) files, rename.
Filename references (as in Manage > External Data Sources) are unchanged, meaning the files cannot 'find' each other.

Expected result

File references being fixed = updated.

Actual result

Is the Tools>Developer Utilities not supposed to change file names and references within each file including Scripts, Field References within Define Fields, etc?   I have been trying to use this feature to know avail.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The normal FileMaker Pro dialog:
"The file XXXXXX could not be opened (Not Found)"

Configuration information

Latest OS and FMP versions.
