      Re-login still does not accept a Global variable like it will a field in the Password parameter.

          Thank you for your post.


          I am unable to replicate the issue.  This is what I have done:


          1. I created a new database file with a text field "Name".

          2. I entered one record with the value Name = "TSGal"

          3. Under Manage -> Security..., I created a new account "test" with password "test".  Read-Only Access.

          4. Under Scripts -> Script Workspace, I created a script "First" with the following script steps:

              Set Variable [ $$account ; "test" ]

              Set Variable [ $$password ; "test" ]

          5. I created a second script "Change" with the script step:

              Re-Login [ Account Name: $$account ; Password: $$password ; With dialog: Off ]

          6. Both scripts are saved, and I return to Browse mode.

          7. I can modify the Name field.

          8. I execute the script "First" to initialize the global variables.

          9. I execute "Change".  I put my cursor in Name, and I cannot change the value.


          Let me know what I am doing differently than you so I can replicate the issue.
