Post-upgrade to FM15 - Set Field step crashes FileMaker when hosted on server

Migrated database from FM12 to FM15 server over the weekend only to discover some strange behaviour - possibly a bug?


Here are the details - appreciate any feedback or help, thanks.


Script is OnRecordLoad trigger - set's a global field used to filter portal records. Note that this was working fine in FM12 (server and local client) and also no issues in local copy of FM15 db (i.e. exactly the same file downloaded from hourly backup).


So the issue only occurs when hosted on FM15 server. I'm logged in with Full Access account so not related to any user privileges.


FileMaker hangs and must be force quit (note other users have had issues with FM hanging when performing different actions on DB - while investigating I came across this issue)


Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

FM Server 15 - latest version (


Client I'm using is FM Pro 15 Advanced


Script sets a global field used to filter portal records by year (and field is on the layout in question) - see attached - specific step that crashes FM is


Set Field [ Main::zv_FilterYear_g; Year ( Get ( CurrentDate ) ) ]


where Main::zv_FilterYear_g; is defined as Number field with Global storage.


Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
