Title

Strange script behavior, insert text, insert calc result, go to field, problems

Post

Mac OS 10.5.5 

Database hosted on FMSA 9

Users on FMP10

 

All fields in question can be entered in Find mode. 

Script enters find mode and restores find.

Asks question about what to do next

Based on user selection, goes to field, inserts text or other similar behavior to complete find selections

Perform find

 

With FMP10 the text to added in the field does not occur or entry to proper field is not done as expected. 

 

Example:

When testing, I put in pauses to find if steps are being done

After a step of Goto field (field ; select on ; go to target field on )

At the user controlled pause of the next step, does not show selection or entry into proper field.

It will "go to next field" and eventually make entry that way though.  The problem is that this requires several steps when going directly to the appropriate field would be better.

Same problem with the "insert" script steps.  The steps are simply not being performed for some reason. 

 

Ideas?
