Set a Variable from a Summary Field

I use FMPro 12 Advanced.


I cannot set a variable based on the number showing in a summary field. If I copy the number in the summary field, it will paste into another field. But it will not set the value showing in the summary field into another field.


Copy and paste works, but I find that if I have l of values copying and pasting to the Windows clipboard, sometimes Windows fails. I never have problems when I set variables - but there are times when I really need the value from the summary field but my only option in getting it is copy and paste.


What am I doing wrong?
