i need some help ,and may i get the answers for my important questions please.

i did a program and i finished it, in my program there is a different access for every employee, and my problem in this issue.


i know there is an access page control in the filemaker, but i have created my own techniques for accessing layouts for user employees.



i know that this command


set variable[ $$USER_NAME_ ACCESS , GET(UserAccount) ]

gets the user's account name then directs it to that global variable (( $$USER_NAME_ ACCESS ))

and in the layout home page, i print the value of this global variable as shown in the picture below. Screen Shot 2016-12-13 at 9.35.27 AM - Copy.png



and it's work fine and the results as shown.




the problem is that sometimes in the layout's home page when the user logs in  (( $$USER_NAME_ACCESS )) the global variable prints empty value like as shown below




The home page layout is the first layout open after I enter my user name and password,

in the OnLayoutEnter I wrote my code, and this picture for more clarification.


Log in step






And this is the home page cods.
