Troubleshooting Scripts and Calculations

There are many specific areas of potential trouble in FileMaker, and we'll get to those in the next section. Here, though, we want to discuss some general principles for dealing with errors in scripts and calculations.

Handling Errors in Scripts

Many FileMaker actions can result in an error. “Error” in this context can mean any exceptional condition that needs to be reported to the user. This can be something as simple as a search that returns no records or a field that fails to pass validation, or it can be a more esoteric error involving something like a missing key field. In general, in the normal operation of FileMaker, these errors get reported to the user via a dialog box of some kind, often with some sort of choice as to how to proceed.
