FileMaker Pro Advanced

MacOS Sierra 10.12.5

MacBook Pro 11,3


One of my server-hosted databases crashes FMP16.  This happens only on a Mac and only with FMP16.  Opening the file on FMP15 on a Mac or FMP16 on Windows works OK.  The crash happens when going to a layout which has a chart.  In trying to troubleshoot, I created a local copy of the DB and whittled away at sensitive and extraneous data.  Hopefully without introducing other problems, the sample DB is now minimal but still exhibits the problem.


The attached DB will open OK, but going to the chart layout crashes every time, but only on a Mac running FMP16.


The DB includes an External data source to a database running on our server.  If I change the table occurrence to an existing internal copy of the table THEN delete the external data source, FMP16 does not crash.


If I delete the chart from the layout, FMP16 does not crash.


Even with the external data source still in place, if I isolate my MacBook (with no network connection), I still get the crash.


I have not found a workaround.


Attached is a zip copy of the database and a copy of the problem report.
