    FileMaker has a lot of script steps where you have to (or should) define a target field. It would be nice to set this target fields by calculation just as in "Set Field By Name".

     

    Operations like a cleanup before/after an update would become much easier if I could eg. "Set Next Serial Value" with a dynamic field. Same goes for tables as in the "Truncate Tables" step.
