1. Adding another "find" at the end.
2. Changing the "request -1" to request 1 (there's only one request in
3. Turned off smart quote marks in FMP 6 document prefs.
I'm still getting stuck in Find mode. I'm happy to try any other

From my previous dealings with FMP, the culprit could well be
FileMaker itself. Somewhere in the application preferences
('Document.../General' in the good old days, IIRC), there was a "Use
smart quotes" option...
To double-check this, I just went back to an old copy of FMP (4.0v1),
running on OS 9.1, but couldn't replicate the problem. So maybe I was
recalling a setup even earlier than that - or perhaps it was just
another episode of delirious raving(!) Best disregard... ;-)
No, it's there (he said, hopefully.) Though I am not looking as I
there are 'Application Preferences' and 'Document Preferences'. I
that this setting is in Document preferences, so if you didn't open a
may have missed that.
At any rate, in FM5 and FM6 (and I do think FM4, but...) it's in one
not the other.
Ah yes - just as I recalled. Thanks, Gary. :-)
And if AS were being run from a Field, as is common, then this
_would_ be a
problem. If the AS is in a Perform AS script step, then I don't
would even compile in there, but...
Right. It returns the old "found unknown token" compile time error,
here - as one might expect.
Anyway, while checking that, I thought I'd go back to the Eric's query
- to see if I could replicate the condition that he first described.
Turns out that I get similar behaviour - except that it's not actually
Find mode I get stuck in. It's in FMP's script execution, as if the
script has been paused.
If this what Eric was trying to describe, then I may be able to
suggest a fix, which simply involves repeating the find command -
something like this:
delete every request
set (create new request)'s cell "date" to "5/1/2005…5/30/2005"
Of course, Eric's problem may be something else entirely - but I
thought it worth mentioning.
