Object not found applescript

I am trying to use applescript with filemaker pro and I am stuck on something that should be quite simple.

I just want to set a variable to the data in a cell.

eg.

 

tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced"

    tell document "test"

       

        go to layout "testlayout"

        set var_ to cell "Duration"

       

       

    end tell

end tell

 

I Definitely have a field named "Duration"

The script goes to the layout, but then gives me an error

"error "FileMaker Pro Advanced got an error: Object not found." number -1728 from cell "Duration" of document "test"

 

Its odd.

I have tried to access the data of other fields and some work and others dont.

Also if I repeat thru the records in the layout of fields that do work I get thru some of the records but then fail on a particular record.

Im lost

Please help

Thanks
