Description: Fatal error at Scripting Workspace

How to replicate

Workaround (if any)


Using Script Workspace gives at certain times critical errors at Filemaker Pro and Advanced.

We discovered that it happens at the IF statment, when the formula is bigger than fits in 1 line.

Specially when fields are used in the formula, coming from External data sources.

Here it happens at all IF statements, when using ODBC fields, but only when the formula is to big to show it at once.


The error passes by when moving the mouse above the formula, when it must open a box with the complete formula in it.

Moving the mouse directly to the change button, this will work fine.


Hope you can solve this.

The critical errors had been damaged several databases...

We love to backup!
