    Mystery " -2 " at the end of file names in Window drop down file select menu

    jebber6685

      Recently, for no known reason, I now sometimes see some of my open files duplicated with a " - 2" at the end of the file name.

       

      For example, right now I have my Contacts db file open among other FM files. When I go to the Windows drop down menu to select another file to open, I now see my "Contacts" file but there is also "Contacts - 2" listed. This is concerning to me since I have no idea how or why this "-2" file is being created and I am concerned about losing data.

       

      If I open each one, they appear to be the same exact file but why is this happening? I have been using FM since 1988 and have never seen this.

       

      What am I doing wrong?

      What should I do?

      How can I prevent this?

      What could be causing this?

       

      Any help here would be greatly  appreciated.

       

      I have FMPro Advanced 14.0.5

      OS - Windows 7
