Product and version: Filemaker Go 14 and Filemaker Pro Advanced 15.0.3.305

OS and version: iOS 10.2.1 and MacOS 10.12.3

Hardware: iPad Pro and Macbook

Description: If a shared file has more than one punctuation in its filename, sharing will fail.

How to replicate:

Named file as "database_1.5.fmp12". Sharing (over LAN) will not work, with FMP_GO giving a "file not found" error. Renaming the file to "database_1_5.fmp12" makes the sharing work, concluding that the punctuation is the problem.
