FileMaker 14. I'm creating a DDR of a solution on a server. The 'On Layouts' column of the Fields table is empty, which is of course nonsense.
Can anyone reproduce this?
Or explain it?
It is normal if you uncheck the Layout option when creating the DDR...
OK, I should have mentioned: I create the DDR with the whole kit and kaboodle - all boxes ticked.
tested under FM14 -> all data here, 'on Layouts' is populated under 'fields' (14.01 and 14.02)
Was that test with a file with multiple tables, or just a single table?
single file, multiple tables
What happens if you clone the database, and recover it? Wonder if it is damaged...
Turn off the check mark, close the dialog box, reopen and check it. (In past experiences sometimes it helps when you toggle an option, this is something generic that sometimes helps...)
Thanks for the suggestions. No change unfortunately.
I'm wondering if the age of the files is a factor - the solutions in question go all the way back to FileMaker 7. If I open the Approvals file from the current 'New in FileMaker 14' tutorials, for example, everything is as expected.
the age shouldn't be a problem - we are using DDR (with CrossCheck) everytime, when we do a migration, even from 6to14..
how many files, how many tables? Mac/Win? How big is a DDR?
My main problem is with a larger multi-file solution, but I also have the problem with a solution consisting of a single file with 6 tables. The DDR is about 700 kb
I see now you say on a server... So please eleborate a bit more on your setup...
I make DDR regularly and many files.
Only the big ones being a pain cause of the lack of speed but all the info is always there.
Maybe it's a issue with your FMPa installation? You could create a new user or try on different machine?
Server ist FileMaker 14, Mac OS X 10.10, single machine.
I doubt that is relevant though. I have the problem with a small solution which is only ever used locally.
A new user, or a re-install, is probably a good idea. I'll try and get to it thsi weekend.
