As the scope of my project changed I recently added a field to one of my tables to record a vendor ID. Since it is a new field and there is only one vendor using the project I wrote a simple script like so;
If IsEmpty(PackagedItem::Vendor_ID) // I know I don't need this check but I got in the habit of using it just in case I ever made a mistake selecting a field, etc.
SF [PackagedItem::Vendor_ID]; "the vendor ID"
This file exists on a remote server hosted at a reputable location. My table has ~ 7,700 records and it took 36 minutes to run. To me that seems like a lot of time for something relatively simple. Is that normal time for FileMaker?
