Appendix B. FileMaker Error Codes

The following table (Table B-1) lists the error codes that may pop up when FileMaker detects something out of whack in your database, especially when you’re writing or running a script. Like any things written by and for computer programmers, these official descriptions may not make much sense in English, but they may provide a little more guidance than the error number alone.

Error codes marked with an asterisk (*) pertain only to Web-published databases.
