      Cannot use "Check In" for Lending Library in IWP

      Post

      Hello,

      I have a database that I've built off of FileMaker's "Lending Library" starter solution.  Basically, I want users to be able to check equipment in and out.  This works perfectly in FileMaker Pro 11 (the program itself, I mean), but I cannot do the "Check In" process for equipment from the IWP.  Is this a known issue?  Is there a way around it?

      When the user presses the "Check In" button, it launches a script called "Equipment Check In - Part 1," which in turn launches "Equipment Check In - Part 2."

      Here are the two scripts:

      Equipment Check In - Part 1

      Freeze Window
      If [Equipment::Status = "Available"]
         Beep
         Show Custom Dialog ["Message"; "This asset is currently checked in."]
      Else
         If [equipment_HISTORY_Equipment ID Flag Checked Out::Flag Checked Out]
            Go to Related Record [From table: "equipment_HISTORY_Equipment ID Flag Checked Out"; Using layout: "Process Check Out" (History)]
            Perform Script ["Equipment Check In - Part 2"]
         End If
         Perform Script ["Go to Equipment Form View"]
         Set Field [Equipment::Status; "Available"]
      End If
      Commit Records/Requests [No Dialog]

      And

      Equipment Check In - Part 2

      Set Field[History::Check In Date; Get(CurrentDate)]
      Set Field[History::Check In Time; Get(CurrentTIme)]
      Set Field[History::Flag Checked Out; ""]
      Commit Records/Requests [No Dialog]

      I know that these scripts don't do someone any good who is unfamiliar with my database, but is there any error here that is blatantly obvious?  Are there any scripts I chose that don't work well in IWP?

      Thanks in advance.
