GetFieldName Function

Description of the issue

According the FMP help  :GetFieldName(Evaluate(Get(ActiveFieldName))) returns the fully qualified name of the field that has the focus when executed. This only works if the Field belongs to the Table specified in the Layout Setup. If the field is a related one, then no name is returned by the function.If another field with the same name belongs to the table specified in the Layout Setup then the function will return the name (of the related field) preceded by the name of the specified table which is not right. FMPA 10OS 10.5
