Title

Getting the Fully Qualified Field Name

Post

     Trying to get the TO::FieldName, I came across this help page.

     http://www.filemaker.com/help/11/fmp/html/func_ref3.33.8.html

GetFieldName(Evaluate(Get(ActiveFieldName))) returns the fully qualified name of the field that has the focus when executed.

     This is supposed to return the TO and Field it just gives the ? , right now I'm trying to use Data Viewer but would like to script it later. I've tried similar things with script triggers and auto enter calcs 

     I think it is pulling the field contents, which doesn't make sense to me. 

     Is there one way to get TO::FieldName that can be used anywhere Get() can?
