Get (ScriptResult) not working

I'm having some trouble getting the Get (ScriptResult) and/or the Exit Script [Result:X] to work. Here are the basic steps that my script takes. This is for a FileMaker Go sync solution that I'm building:


  1. The deployed database on an iPad exports the connector database from a container field in the deployed db
  2. The connector db is set to run a script on open to synchronize the data between the deployed db and the hosted db
  3. The script on the connector db ends with "Exit Script [Result: $TimeStamp]"
  4. The process then returns to the original script on the deployed file to set the new synchronized timestamp and close the hosted db and connector db


Here's a screenshot of the portion of the script on the deployed db where these steps take place:

What should I be doing differently to pass the script result from the connector db's script to the deployed file's script? I'm using FileMaker 11 Advanced.
