Duplicate Record Target

Duplicate Record Target


     I had a duplicate record script working fine.  

     On a contacts layout, i have a portal.  Each portal row has a popover.  A button in the popover activates the script that has the duplicate record step.  It would duplicate the record corresponding to that row of the portal

     Later, I went into the 'tab order setup' menu and pressed 'clear all.'  Now, when I run the script, it tries to duplicate not the record from the portal row, but the record on which the portal resides.

     I then looked at a backup.  I restored the relative tab orders of the portal row and the buttons in the portal.  It works fine again.

     So everything is working again, but I'd like to have a better understanding of how the duplicate step finds its target record.  I've read its description on the filemaker resources website, searched the forums for that particular script step, refered to the 'missing manual (fmp12), and the fmp12 dev's reference book all with no luck.  Any insight would be apreciated
