Returns an error code, if any, from an expression.
EvaluationError ( expression )
expression - any calculation expression
Data type returned
Originated in version
There are two types of errors: syntax and runtime. A syntax error indicates an invalid calculation. A runtime error, such as Field missing or Record missing, occurs when the calculation currently being run is valid but cannot properly execute. See FileMaker error codes for a list of error codes and messages.
- The EvaluationError function must enclose the Evaluate function to return any syntax errors.
EvaluationError( GetField ( "total" ) + 1 ) returns 102 (Field Missing) when the field total has been deleted or renamed.
EvaluationError( Evaluate ( calculationField ) ) returns 1207 (Unbalanced Parenthesis) when calculationField contains
abs(-1 with no closing parenthesis.
