GetNextSerialValue is a strange bird.

Hi All,

 

I've been playing with the Design function "GetNextSerialValue". I know its 2 parameters must be enclosed in quotes. My question is why doesn't it like the results of the Quote () function.

 

Let ([

~File = Quote (Get (FileName));

~Field = Quote (Get ( ActiveFieldTableName ) &"::" & Get ( ActiveFieldName ))

];

 

GetNextSerialValue ( ~File; ~Field)

)

 

I can take the exact results from each calculation and place them as literal parameters and all is fine, but the above snipit doesn't produce any result. Either my thinking is wrong (too much holiday cheer) or this function is a strange bird.

 

Regards, Mark
