You will need to use a script trigger to grab the value when the field is entered. What version of FM are you using and is the field regular text or does it have a pop-up menu attached or what?
it's version 11 and pop up menu.
Which script menu is fine?
With Pop up menus, there's a bug with script triggers where the OnObjectEnter script trigger doesn't perform until you exit the popup. You can still capture the original value of the field, if you pass the field reference to the script triggered script as a parameter.
Example: say your field is called Contacts::Name. Put Contacts::Name in the parameter box of the Script Trigger set up.
In your script, you can then get the original value by using the function: Get ( ScriptParameter )
