          Tim Cormier:

          Thank you for your post.

          Using FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.1 under Windows 8.1 Professional, I am unable to replicate the crash using your exact steps.  (I used a CSV file for import.)

          I do not have any plug-ins, and after reading the Community thread, I see that your issue also occurs without any plug-ins enabled or installed.

          If you create a new user account, login to the new user account, launch FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.1 and follow the same steps, are you able to replicate the issue?

          Let me know if there any steps you left out to help me replicate the crash.

            Same crash under a brand new test user account. I have a sample DB and CSV file that I used if you want.

              Since I am unable to reproduce the crash, feel free to send in the sample database file from the new user account since it was created more recently.  Check your Inbox at the top of this page for instructions where to send the file.

                I received your sample file.  Thank you.

                I am still unable to replicate the issue.  I followed the same exact steps, and FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.1 did not crash. The screen shot below shows the Script Workspace immediately after the last step.  Below the Script Window, you can barely see the About Windows box that shows Windows 8.1 Pro.

                Do you have access to another Windows 8.1 Pro machine?  If not, then I would remove and reinstall FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.1.

                Is there anything else you can tell me about your computing environment?

                  No other 8.1 Pro boxes. I could build a clean VM of one, but not sure it is worth my time...

                  I do have a Win 7 Pro VM I can try it on and see if I can reproduce. It'll just have to be later as I don't have the install disc with me
