Are these global fields? Calculated?
Yes they are Global but are not calculated. They are used in a calculation.

I think I have got it working. It would appear to be a capability of Filemaker I was unaware of! I will experiment further.
Right! I haven't fixed it. It would appear that global fields on a networked solution under FM12 DO NOT retain pictures. As soon as I unclick 'Global Storage' button everything seems to be OK. Unfortunately that doesn't work for my solution and at the moment I am at a loss as to how to proceed.
Globals are local to the environment. In a server situation you will need to load the globals with your color swatch when the file is NOT served (off of the server), then serve the file again.
Thanks, but how come it worked in the v11 solution?

If you set up the content of the containers locally before hosting the V11 files the contents would stick.
I find it more reliable to store the global data in non global fields and load that contents into the globals via a script when the user opens the file.
