    I've seen errors like that occur in FileMaker when certain functions are used in calculations (field calcs, scripted IF calcs, set field calcs, etc). The main offender that comes to mind is the getField function, however other self-examining functions could be the culprit.

    I think the status functions are fairly safe; I've never encountered a problem with a status(current...) function.

    Also, you could try saving the database as a compressed copy (File > Save a Copy as... > Save a: compressed copy (smaller) )

    Can you tell us more about what script steps are used near the crash?

    Question Re: Instruction error - desperate help needed

    I also get an error of type occasionally with FM.exe trying to read or write an instruction into memory. Although I haven't completely solved the issue, let me ask you this: 1) Are you accessing FM server records. 2) Are you using a developer version of FM. 3) Do you have more than 1 version of FM on your computer (developer and 6.0) and 4) if your accessing records from FM server, do you have a shared access to another folder on the same server?
    My gut feeling is a bad memory chip, but because this happens very infrequently and only with this program, I'm searching for other answers based on the above questions.

    Talking Re: Instruction error - desperate help needed

    Since I posted this note I went throught several troubleshooting steps and cleaned out a few things.

    1. I transferred the project application folder close to home, meaning Filemaker Pro's folder
    2. I limited the amount of files open to 8 files
    3. I checked the scripts routine...I found some scripts using external script had IP addresses next to it for some reason
    4. Some buttons were configure to pause when the script was rolling on a subsequent step....

    it hasn't blown up yet....

    That's it the IP addresses.
