Relationships, Lyouts & Value Lists Disappear


Recommended Posts



I have created a pretty large database with Filemaker 8 Advanced.


When I opened the project I was working on today, I found that I could not use certain layouts/relationships/value lists in scripts and field definitions. These layouts/relationships/value lists have not been deleted and can be viewed ... but not used!


I can create new relationships and new Value Lists as normal but they subsequently do not appear in the drop down lists when I try to select them for use with fields on a layout or in a script.


All these relationships/value lists/layouts were available yesterday and could be used with scripts & layout fields then. Now they cannot.


I tried recovering the file but the same problem still exists.


Has anyone come up against this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I cannot finish the project otherwise.

It sounds like a symptom of file corruption. You might be able to fix it by doing a Save As (Compacted Copy).


If that doesn't solve it, test a backup from a few days ago and move it your data into a clone of that.
