    ValueListNames / ValueListItems problem

    ianskidmore

      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
