I am receiving this on a server scheduled script. It occurs at random, but will cause the entire script to fail and abort. It always occurs on the first perform find script step. Given it's random occurrence, I have not been able to diagnose a cause.

A scripted Filemaker Find gives error 16 whenever a numeric global is used to search a numeric calculation field. The script works fine if a number is used instead of the global. The script is run with full access privileges and the user has full permissions. The global table is not linked. Can't figure this one out.
