Error 3 opening hosted file from local file in FMGo

FMS15, FMPA15, FMGo15


I have a hosted file on FMS and a local file on an iPad. From the local file, I am trying to open the hosted file via script. The local file is configured to see the hosted file as an external data source.



Local file on iPad:

When I hit my Open File script step, trying to open the hosted file, I get an Error 3 : Command not available. However, looking at the compatibility of the script steps in Script Workspace, I can't see any problem with the Open File step in FMGo.


I can error trap around this but I really want to know why this is happening. Is it a weird bug/glitch or something I don't understand about how FileMaker works?


I can put this same Local file on my PC, open with FMPA and the Open File script step runs with no error 3.


Anyone have any insight?
