GetContainerAttribute(sourceField;attributeName) not returning data

Question asked by peteraddison on Dec 5, 2015

I want to extract the name of a file used in a container. The function:

 

GetContainerAttribute(sourceField;attributeName)

 

should handle this.

 

However, when I've added this to the calculation, I get "?" (question mark) instead of data.

 

I can drop in a new file and it returns the data. In fact, if I export the file, then drop it back in, it displays correctly.

 

So: I know my formula is correct and functioning, but it's not looking back at previously inserted files.

 

I also have a formula that converts to text and it has the information that I need, but it also has a lot I don't need. It's working fine.

 

I could export all files and re-place them, but there are some 12,000 records in the file, so that's not very practical.

 

Anyone know how I can force the "get" function to display the data?
