“Think as an attacker does, not as a developer does.” That was the advice FileMaker security expert Steven H. Blackwell gave FileMaker Pro developers of vertical market products who were gathered at the Second Annual FileMaker Product Conference in Chicago today.

Chicago, IL (September 17, 2013) – Thorsen Consulting, a leading software development company, invites FileMaker product, plugin and application developers to attend a special software conference, October 21-‐22.
"FileMaker developers who are currently selling or thinking about selling commercial products have unique needs in terms of the technical and business challenges and opportunities we face. It’s exciting to bring this group together for a truly exceptional learning and networking experience,” says Molly Connolly founder and organizer of the conference.

I am writing a pretty elaborate script, at least for me it's elaborate. It features about 5 levels of nested conditional loops all based on random numbers of various types. I ran into one stage where a script was calling itself recursively which FMP choked on.
So what I did was to write each loop as a separate script and this works great for me. I used a bunch of global variables plus local variables. The thing is now in a bunch of small, highly manageable chunks. This also makes the scripts a lot easier to understand since the whole thing was way too much to wrap my head around.
I see large complex scripts all the time so I began to wonder if what I did is a Best Practice? Now that I have it all working should I rewrite it into one monster script with a custom function for the recursion? Or is it okay to just have a bunch of small scripts (and no custom functions) all calling each other in loops while sharing global variables?
I found it easier code the innermost loop first and then work my way outward one loop at a time. When I tried to start with the outermost loop I simply was unable to envision the thing in detail even though I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Any single loop was easy enough to see but they always needed that inner loop to code and test. There's just no way to write the outer loop until the inner loops were done. I suppose this is the same way that calculations are evaluated, innermost statements first and then work their way outward.

I Have a script that searches a relational database for information.
The information it searches is in a calculation field.
Each person in the relational database would have seven records with a calculation code
Here are is an example for one person:
ID Name Code (Calculation)
12345 John Jones 222-21-17
12345 John Jones 726-19-17
12345 John Jones 890-56-17
12345 John Jones 154-22-17
12345 John Jones 276-03-17
12345 John Jones 272-09-17
12345 John Jones 999-99-17
When I want to find all the people in the database that have the same code, it finds the right data but always shows the code for the first item in the records. In other words when I ask to see all the people with the 276-03-17 code, it returns the correct data, but the data in code box defaults to whatever code is in the first record for the person. In this person’s case the box reads 222-21-17.
How do I get the data box to read the correct information that has been requested?

Well version 13 has been release but it is the same icon as v12. Since you can run multiple version on the Mac a visual distinction always helps.
I have attached a new 'FM12DApp.icns' file to put into the apps content / resources folder.
After you replace it you can 'get info' on the app, select the icon in the top left corner, then copy / paste to refresh the new icon.
