I have for many years used copy paste in scripts for finding records across the filemaker tables and it works like a charm. First i "park" the systems "copy-contens" in a container, then i do my search scripts and finally copy back from container to regain the system copy from the container.
This is working well and the user never notice anything - however. this is the "dump" way i have learned.
One place i read that the Set variable was like copy and set field is like paste - however not working...
Would someone pls explain how this is done properly?
