I had a flat data base where I set data from a field; went to another open file and successfully pasted it. I recently did some updating in the three file database and now that STOPPED WORKING!. I have tried the $$Variable but the info is lost when I get to the target file (even though both files are open). Process: FileA: SetVariable [$$] go to File-B SetField with SetVariable [$$]---no data sets??? Any ideas??
