I recently imported around 250K records into FileMaker Pro Advanced 16 and then deleted the first record for it contained the heading. I then closed the file and opened it 2 days later. Now all I can see in the entire table are special characters instead of text. I tried doing the recover and it completed successfully but I still see special character in the Recovered database. I have not see this happen in any other applications that I use at work so do not understand why this would happen.
