FileMaker Version: all of them
How to reproduce:
- Create a TEXT field.
- Close the Manage Database window.
- Open the Manage Database window again.
- Change the field to be a calculation, dismiss the dialog.
- The result of the calculation is NUMBER.
Expected result: the result of the calculation should be the same of the original field definition. In this case, text.
Yesterday I changed 1.200 global text fields to global calculations. So I had to change the result from number to text 1.200 times. Thanks God that the resulting fields were still global, not indexed.
By the way, cold you please give us a way to dismiss that dialog? Dismissing it 1.200 times in a row was also a pain in the ass.
Thanks for listening.
