Title

Setfield on and off the layout

Post

Thanks to some of the great 'guides' on this forum, I now use:

 

Enter Find Mode()

set field (Field1; "ouch")

Perform Find

 

I have noticed that sometimes that if Field1 isn't on the layout or on the desktop next to the layout, set field doesn't work.  (Yes, it is in the table but not on the layout).  When I add it to the desktop next to the layout, Found works.  But, after that, I can take it off the desktop and it continues to work.

 

Granted, I was editing a script at the time so a couple of things were going on but "Does anyone know if it is a requirement to have Field1 on or near the layout?

 

THanks
