Summary

Script Step 'Copy' does not seem to work with IWP

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11 Advanced and Pro

Operating system version

Win XP Pro, all updates applied 1/1/2011

Description of the issue

The script step 'Copy' does not seem to copy field contents to the clipboard when accessed via IWP.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a simple 1-table file with 2 fields:
- FieldIndexed
- FieldGlobal
both of type text, 2nd field a global.

Create 4 scripts
- Copy the indexed field
- Copy the global field
- Set the indexed field to have the data of the global field
- Set the global field to have the data of itself & "---" & itself

All scripts work perfectly in Filemaker Client (version 11) When run via IWP:

- The first two ('Copy') scripts do *not* work
- the second two ('Set Field') scripts work perfectly.

I am using WinXP. It performs the same using Firefox or IE

Expected result

The 'Copy' script step would copy the contents of a global field to the local clipboard for pasting.

Actual result

The 'Copy' script step does not seem to copy the data to the clipboard.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None.  The browser makes every impression of waiting for the localhost to return data, but nothing is copied.
