Using FileMaker Pro Advanced Trial v126.96.36.1990. (Have modified many Files with this APP ok.)
There is one LARGE file (which presents a group of only 17 Items, when opened).
I wish to OMIT 5 of those records being "displayed".
Normally, I would select the 1st record & use the RECORDS Menu to Omit that 1 item.
As I go along, the 5 records seem to be omitted OK.
However, after I use the "SAVE a COPY as" *type compacted Smaller” for the file,
the 5 records are again shown.
A.) First attempt I used the RECORDS MENU specifying the abbreviated OMIT command.
B.) Then, I also used the RECORDS MENU using the FULL "OMIT RECORD" command.
Both ATTEMPTS had the same result (the omitted records re-appeared).
Has anyone had this same experience ??
Or found a reason for it ??
THANKS for help to find a solution.
