Set Field does't seem to push data into the wanted field

Hi FM'ers,



I know, I'm busy with a lot of questions lately. But I'm building a touch device interface and running into a heap of problems lately.

I was hoping you guys could think along with me.

Here is a graph of one of the many relationships.

What I'm trying to do is get in Invoices::ContactIdFk (number) the ID that you can find in Contacts_Invoices::Id (Number, auto serial)

with the Set field (on button click). It seems it runs the script but ContactIdFk stays empty.

I'm trying to select the client for a specific invoice from a list with all clients.


The script I use when button click is:


Set Field [ Invoices::ContactIdFk ; Contacts_Invoices::InvoiceNumber ]

Go to Layout ["CreateNewInvoice" (Invoices) ]

Go to Object ["Object Name: "tab-chooseclient" ]


Hope you guys could teach me another thing or two. Because I don't see what I'm doing wrong here.

But it might be a foolish mistake


Much appreciated!
