Isobel, this is a known issue with FM 7 on Windows machines. It's not
your machine and there isn't anything anyone can do until FMI brings out
a bug fix.
The only suggestions right now are to stay with FM 6 if possible, or to
only deploy 7 on Macs. It's one of the major "we wish you'd waited just
a bit longer" issues with the first release of 7.
FM7 Tip of the Day: When showing records from more than one table away,
the relationship will fail unless there are valid records in the
intermediate tables. Test to make sure such records exist before
evaluating calculations or trying to script through those tables.
