Simple Go To Layout (by calculation) fails

I have 2 very simple scripts designed just to go back to previous layout.


script 1 (set up as an on exit layout script Trigger)

Set Variable ($$lastLayout)


script 2: ( attached to a button )

Go to Layout [ $$lastLayout ]

//  above by using Layout Name by Calculation option

//  since testing hard coding a layout name worked, I even tried GTL ( GetAsText ($$lastLayout)


data view shows that the variable is set correctly, but when I click the button, nothing happens. Script Debugger indicates no error..


When all that failed I Tried: passing LayoutName & LayoutTableName following FP script reference notes**:


Like this: Go To Layout [  $$lastLayout &  "(" & $$lastTable &")" ]


**"  When a file has two or more tables, FileMaker Pro appends the name of the source table to the layout name for clarity. For example, Go to Layout [“Layout #2” (TableB)]. "


I Give. This should be such a no brainer. whats the trick to Layout Name by Calculation?
