When I delete a records with several tables linked, with the 'Delete related records' checked, this popup last for ever (2 hours waited). On a local file using FMP 17 latest.
Any clues where to look for?
Looks like the fact that several tables are linked with the 'delete if the parent table is deleted', option makes things a lot longer. Deleting all children records before, speed up things.
Could any of the child records be locked?
Not knowing what the issue might be, I'd step through the process by using a script to Go To Related Records and see if I can at least delete them manually after I get there. Of course, once you have a script that works, you might want to consider scripting precautions on those deletions.
