    Object not found applescript

    lauriehughes

      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
