FileMaker 13 Reserved Words Reference Table

In FileMaker 13 calculations, specific words (in addition to function names) are reserved and have a special meaning.

Reserved words are assigned a numeric value in the calculation engine and are used to supply arguments to various calculation functions. We recommend you avoid using reserved words as field or table names - and take care to enclose them within quotes where you supply them as text literals (for example within script parameters, conditional formatting expressions and so on).

Below is a list of 31 known reserved words in FileMaker 13:

Note 1: Reserved words are not case sensitive - they will be recogised by FileMaker in upper, lower or 'camel' case.
Note 2: The above list of reserved words is in addition to words used as calculation functions such as Pi and Random.
Note 3: The numeric value associated with a reserved word (as shown above) may be used interchangeably with the word itself in all calculation expressions.
