Using "other" as a text field name
Mac OS X 10.7
I tried using the term "other" to define a filed today and FileMaker gave me a warning that it might cause a problem when used in calculations. I had no intention to use it in that way so I ignored the warning. The file is used to import data from a .xml file using a .xsl file which was designed for us. I have edited the .xsl file before without a problem and I believe that I did everything right this time. I added the new field to FileMaker and tried the import but the filed which should have a value of 80 in it is empty. Id my problem coming from the filed name or something else.
What happens if you change the field name to something else such as "otherr"? That should help confirm or rule out if the name is an issue.
I never would have expected "Other" to trigger this warning message but it does.
