    Parameter is not an object specifier.

    lauriehughes

      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.
