Is *other* a reserved word in FMP12?

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?

 

Michele
