      Summary

      Wrong calculation function parameter separator in swedish version

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.0.3

      Operating system version

      MacOSX 10.8.2

      Description of the issue

      The following calculation functions have a comma (,) instead of semicolon (;) as a parameter separator in the swedish version of FileMaker Advanced on MacOS. If you ask me I would prefer comma instead of semicolon since that tends to be a standard in many programming languages. In a swedish FileMaker client the colon must be replaced or FileMaker will evoke a error message when trying to save the calculation.

      All of the functions are in category Design Functions

      FieldBounds ( databas, layout, fält )
      FieldIDs ( databas, layout )
      FieldNames ( databas, layout )
      FieldRepetitions ( databas, layout, fält )
      FieldStyle ( databas, layout, fält )
      FieldType ( databas, fält )
      GetNextSerialValue ( databas, fält )
      RelationInfo ( databas, relation )

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Start a swedish Client om MacOS X

      Open Dataviewer and goto tab second tab called "Övervaka"

      Select category Design in the dropdown list above the list of functions

      Look at the following functions

      FieldBounds
      FieldIDs
      FieldNames
      FieldRepetitions
      FieldStyle
      FieldType
      GetNextSerialValue
      RelationInfo

      Expected result

      FieldBounds ( databas; layout: fält )
      FieldIDs ( databas: layout )
      FieldNames ( databas: layout )
      FieldRepetitions ( databas: layout: fält )
      FieldStyle ( databas; layout; fält )
      FieldType ( databas; fält )
      GetNextSerialValue ( databas; fält )
      RelationInfo ( databas; relation )

      Actual result

      FieldBounds ( databas, layout, fält )
      FieldIDs ( databas, layout )
      FieldNames ( databas, layout )
      FieldRepetitions ( databas, layout, fält )
      FieldStyle ( databas, layout, fält )
      FieldType ( databas, fält )
      GetNextSerialValue ( databas, fält )
      RelationInfo ( databas, relation )

      Workaround

      Manually change the comma to a semicolon
