I'm trying to debug an application written in Filemaker 5. Because this application uses 12 Filemaker databases, over 400 fields and almost 1000 scripts, I'm finding it difficult to find common references throughout the scripts.
Is there a plug-in that I can use to export all of the scripts into a text editor in order to search for variables?
Is there another way to search for variables, field names, etc. within fields or scripts?
Lastly, is there a way to find out what script is populating a particular field if that field is only defined as a text field?
You could also use Adobe Acrobat Writer. When you 'Print' the scripts using the Adobe Acrobat Writer, you can then open the PDF file and perform text searches within the PDFs.
Depending on your budget, there is a developer tool called 'analyzer' from waves-in-motion. I have not seen it work, but read reviews of it. Basically it exports your scripts, field definations and relationships into a text file. It can also print reports that describe what fields are used in what scripts, etc.
