Parameter is not an object specifier.

Question asked by lauriehughes on Mar 1, 2016

I am trying to repeat thru the found set of a layout and extract the data of some cells to then write in a text doc via applescript.


this is a simplification


tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced"

    tell document "mydatabase"

        set recIDs to ID of records of layout "testlayout"

        repeat with recID in recIDs

            tell record ID recID

                set name_ to cell "Name"

                display dialog name_

            end tell

        end repeat

    end tell

end tell


but I get an error in applescript saying

error "FileMaker Pro Advanced got an error: Parameter is not an object specifier." number -1727


Im stumped, am I approaching this wrong?

any help appreciated.
