    Is *other* a reserved word in FMP12?

    MicheleOlson

      I am testing scripts in FMP12. Some were written in FMP11. [Mac OS X 7.3]

       

      One script add a portal record, depending upon the parameter attached to the button.

       

      There are 3 portals on the screen [materials, labor, other].

       

      Each parameter is the same as the portal named above.

       

      The script works fine for materials and labor, but fails on other.

       

      When looking at the parameter, I find the word other is listed as Other --- not in quotes as is the usual case.

       

      I've checked functions and custom functions and don't find anything named *Other*.

       

      If I change the word to other [still not entering quotes], and close the set button dialog, the word reverts to Other, without quotes.

       

      I can enter the word within quotes, but normally FM will add the quotes in the parameter box.

       

      Ideas ... or is this a reserved word?
