      Global Variable in FileMaker Pro 13 Tasks Solutions

      Post

      I am modifying "FileMaker Pro 13 Task Solutions [Tables: "Tasks"; "Assignees"; "Attachments"]  to change name of "Assignees" table to "Contacts" and add "Company" and "Subtasks" tables. The primary key field for "Tasks" is "Tasks ID Match Field" and is an auto-enter serial number on creation. The foreign key fields for "Contacts (renamed from "Assignees") and "Attachments" are auto-enter calculated fields ("Tasks ID Match Field" = "$$Current_Tasks_ID".

      I appreciate any comments or suggestions on how to determine where or how the value for the global variable "$$Current_Tasks_ID" is set.

          Take a look at the layouts for iOS devices are set up and look for scripts that set this variable to a value when the user changes from a layout for Tasks to layouts based on these other two tables. You'll probably find scripts--maybe performed by OnLayoutExit that set this variable.

          If you have FileMaker Advanced, you can create a database design report and do a text search of that report for every instance of this variable to see where it is used.
