Thanks for your reply, David. I understand what you are saying; as i mentioned, I've made use of this property in many scripts and databases over many years. My question is why it now seems to fetch a different integer if I get the value using a FileMaker script command than if I get what is supposed to be the same value using AppleScript. That has not been my experience to date.
Should not Get(RecordID) produce the same value as "ID of current record"?
