Product and version FileMaker Pro 15.0.2, FileMaker Pro Advance 15.0.2

OS and version OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

Hardware Mac Mini



set fp to open for access file ":Users:gatto:Documents:temp_images:fileToRead"

set the clipboard to (read fp for 1000)

close access fp


this script runs without any error under OS X


in Filemaker I got this error: "Expected end of line, etc. but found identifier.

This is associated with the fp identifier after the read

after, in execution I got the error: Unknown Error -2741


After these two messages, at the end the script runs correctly



How to replicate

Create and run the script

Workaround (if any)

None for the moment
