Customer Question
Hi Pearl. I'm...

Hi Pearl. I'm using Filemaker Pro 13. I'm trying to create a calculated field in my database...something I've done *dozens* of times before. Now, when I do it, it quits the program. I'm using OS10.13.1. Ideas?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the Operating System (OS)?

MacBook Pro 13" OS 10.13.1

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your MacBook Pro?

See above

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your MacBook Pro? What have you tried so far?

Just started doing this. Tried saving the file under another name. Same result.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No, that's about it. I've done this thing dozens of times before, simply adding a new product (using the same processes).

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
