    Setting one Repeating Field to another

    user910

      I'm trying to copy an employee's default weekly schedule into a planned schedule using a script. The default data is in a 7-repetition field in an Employees table, and I want to copy it into a similar 7-repetition field in a related Schedules table. A straight SetField just copies the first repetition. I'll leave out the various other things I've tried. Are there magic words to do this in a single script step?

       

      I'll note that questions about repeating fields tend to get replies saying that they're a bad idea anyway, but they can save us a lot of ridiculous repetition. FileMaker seems to fall way short of providing the vector operations repeating fields deserve.
