FMS 12.0.2 update doesn't solve the XML CWP portal bug - ???
The FileMaker Server 12.0.2 update info page http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11044/ states that it:
"Addressed an issue in Custom Web Publishing where XML query commands were not returning XML tags for empty fields in related records displayed in a portal. The issue occurred when querying databases that had been converted from .fp7 to .fmp12."
We have been plagued with this problem since moving to FM 12, and have been counting on this update so solve the problem so that our web site, which relies on the XML, will no longer be a shambles.
I installed the update this morning, and I'm very disappointed to report that the XML problem still exists. I can supply XML query results that clearly show that the number of <FIELD> tags is not the same as the number of <COL> tags when unpopulated portals are on a layout, the exact same problem as before.
What can I do, after waiting 3 months for this update?
