      Need help with first FMP11 Script

      Post

           Hi all! I'm a longtime FM user, but have no experience with scripting. For my first script, what I am trying to do appears fairly straightforward, but I'm having trouble finding the right syntax.

           Here's what I want to do:

           In a database in table view, I wish to perform the following function:

      if [field A] contains [this text],

      print [this text] in [field B]

           Basically checking the value on one field (column) and then printing a note in a separate notes field (column).

           This also represents the script results, if "Apple" was the Field A value and "Yes" was the print to Field B value.

      Field A          Field B

      Apple            Yes

      Orange

      Apple             Yes

           Many thanks for taking a look...
