I could reproduce this one with different versions of FileMaker Pro/Advanced (Mac / Windows), but all against the same data source.
Here is the situation: we have an ESS table (MS SQL Server).
2 value lists are based on fields from this table
ListA is based on columnA, (all records)
ListB is based on columnB, (all records)
columnA is never empty -> all OK
columnB has some empty values -> FileMaker crashes immediately when trying to evaluate the value list (using ValueListItems for instance)
I tried to create another value lists (in case ListB would be corrupted), same result.
