ValueListNames / ValueListItems problem

Hi

 

I'm trying to set up a calculated global field in a table to store the set of valuelists for my database. I have already calculated the filename using the Get(Filename) function; now I'm trying to use this value to generate a list of valuelists:

 

$filename = Get(FileName);

 

returns the name of the database file as expected. But then

 

$valuelists = ValueListNames( Get(FileName) );

 

is returning an empty result.

 

I really want to be able to use the $filename result in a different function call:

 

$myValueList = ValueListItems( Get(FileName), "valueListName"), but this is also returning an empty result.

 

I'm still using with FMP 11 - any ideas why this isn't working?

 

TIA

Ian
