FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.01

Mac OS X 10.11.5

2012 Quad-core i7 Mac Mini with 16 GB or RAM


I have a solution that has a Popup Menu that I have having an issue with. It uses a filtered value list and is set to store the ID of a related record, but display a value from that record. A common every day FileMaker kind of thing.


It works as it always has in FM 13 and 14, but it won’t show the second field when I open the solution in FM 15. I have tried it hosted from FMS 13, 14 and 15, and with FMPA 13, 14 and 15. The only thing that is consistent is that it won't work in client 15.


If the client is FM 15, the Popup Menu will not work to display the second field. When the field is popped up, it displays the list normally. It’s just that when you make your selection the second value goes away and all it shows is the ID in the field.


It appears that the server version doesn’t make a difference, but the client version does: FM 15 WILL NOT display the second value list field from the selection.


I tried remaking the relationship and built a new value list from that. The behavior is exactly the same.


Has anyone else seen this? It might be the file, but to work perfectly on two versions of FM, and then not on the latest, seems to be worth bringing up here.
