Try opening the database with the Full Access account and password. Sounds as if it were opened as Guest.
thanks for your response.
i am logged in with full access not as guest. it seems to have somthing to do with the menu set. as soon as i try a custom menu then it stops working even with exactly the same menus as (standard filemaker menus). i dont want the standard menu set as i need to hide the scripts in the menu. any ideas.
I don't have an iPad so I am guessing here. It sounds as if you are trying to hide menu items on the iPad by using a user defined menu set using Filemaker Advanced. Do these Filemaker menus show up on the iPad?
If you are experiencing problems on the iPad because your script selects a menu set for Filemaker Pro that causes problems when this script runs on the iPad (which doesn't show the menus) then do this:
If(get(systemplatform) = 3) //the ios device
Install Menu Set ["Standard Flemaker Menus"] <--the default when you use this
Install Menu Set [ yourcustommenu ]
There are several scripts that will cause a script to abort on IOS without warning such as the one that Filemaker has been using to show a preview if you create a Summary Report using 10 or 11. I think this is what you are experiencing.
I am going to test this on my Touch.
