I am using FM Advance 13.4 to a hosted file on FM Server 13. The file contains a contact table. I made a simple layout with 5 basic fields (name, mobile etc) and a button with a button setup to do just PERFORM FIND.

When the first time I click on the button, the system prompted me with an error

I click on Modify Find (without much choice) and enter a simple search for first_name that begin with J. It returns the correct search result of 3 records (in my example file).


Next I click Show All. The problem come when I click on the search button again, the system will immediately show the previous search result (3 record) and I don't have the chance to enter new search criteria.


I have used tried the following :

1. use another Mac

2. create new layout

3. the account login is admin (full access)

4. login with another account and run debug (ended with error 400 : Find criteria are empty)

5. login via iPad


All above failed to give me what I want to do a simple PERFORM FIND search.
