    Conversion From 6 to 11



      Conversion From 6 to 11


           I would appreciate it if someone can help me with this problem of executing a script that has been converted from FMP6 to FMP11.  Two relational files: one is "Members" the other is "Payments".  Under FMP6 the script is executed properly.  You search/locate a member account and then you click on icon (script-see below) to generate a new receipt for this account.

           When I converted the files from FMP6 to FMPA11-the script did not generate a new receipt, instead just located an old one.

           Any idea as what to change in order for this FMP11 script to be executed properly like under FMP6?

           FMP6 Script:

           *  Go to Related Record ["Payments"]

           *  Go to Field [Select/perform, "Payments::Category 2a"]

           *  Go to Portal Row[Select, Last]

           *  Insert Calculated Result [Select, "Payments::Category 2a","Year(Today)"]

           *  Go to Related Record ["Payments"]

           This script works fine. Thanks

               Is this a script in the Payments file or in the Members file?

               Assuming that it's members, I think select window needs to select the window for Payments instead of the current window and I wouldn't be surprised if you needed to specify a layout in the external file instead of <current layout>.
