"Container Fields Cannot Be Exported" Error Dialog


I'm using FileMaker Pro Advanced v11.04. I wrote a script using the Export Field Contents step in a loop to export the contents of a container field for a series of records. The script executes but displays a dialog saying "Container fields cannot be exported".

I have an almost identical script using a similar loop and the same script step (just exporting different container field on a different layout) which executes without the error dialog.

Why is this dialog suddenly appearing? I've been using scripts to export container fields for ages.

Thank you,
