      Note field - Add a note function not working with imported contacts

      Post

      Hi - I have just downloaded the trial version of FileMaker 10 (Windows XP) - great program so far, but I am having a problem that I can't seem to solve.

       

      I have opened a new database, using the Task Management template in FileMaker, and have imported from, two .xls files, my contacts. The import worked great, except for that I can't add notes to any of these contacts. I tried creating a NEW contact within FileMaker, and Add a Note works without any issues. 

       

      So the problem seems to be with imported contacts only. 

       

      My script is showing up as it should (I think!), see below:

      Set Variable [$ID_Contact; Value:Contacts::k_ID_Contact]

      Freeze Window

      Go to Layout ["Contact_RelatedNotes" (Contact_RelatedNotes)]

      New Record/Request

      Set Field [Contact_RelatedNotes::kf_ID_Contact; $ID_Contact]

      Commit Records/Requests [Skip data entry validation; No dialog]

      Go to Layout [original layout]

      Go to Field [Contact_RelatedNotes::Text]

       

      If anyone can help me work out why this is happening, I'd really appreciate it. I hope I have given you enough information. 

       

      Thanks in advance. 

       

      Tahnee.
