  1. Totally not sure if I've put this thread in the right topic category, as I'm not even sure how to go about this. First, I'd like to be very clear on the fact that, if possible, this will be done without scripting. I'm hoping for some kind of calculation. IDK. Anyway, I'm trying to copy or Calc one field from an older record to its newest match (using BatchNum field to match). The two fields are different fields (FormNum is the ID number field) (RefID is the the reference field for FormNum ). RefID would allow the user to find the last time the same arrangement of data (FormNum being its ID num
  2. Hi everyone, We're having an issue when we do a copy and paste, whether between layouts or to an external program, that means the record number is pasted rather than the data in the field from said record. This is happening more often than not, but of course it will occasionally paste correctly - just to add to the frustration. I've had a bit of a look around but can't find anything on the forums. Any ideas about why this is happening and what can be done to fix it? Thanks! Jenni.
  3. We have a script which creates a PDF. Nothing fancy, go to layout, Save Records as PDF. However, if the PDF is generated from the Windows platform the document opens as SECURED in Adobe Reader and content cannot be copied (e.g. text) whereas the same script run from the Mac works fine. Strangely if you use a different application to open the PDF (to Adobe Reader) then copying is available. Has anyone else encountered this? Done lots of testing between platforms and PDF applications. The Save Records as PDF script step has no security settings, very basic. Also tried all different compa
  4. I once remember reading that it is unreliable practice to use Copy / Paste in scripts. I have a looping script that copies data from one table and paste it in another as it as it creates 150-200 new records. I notice that here and there, a few records are missing their pasted data. Should I replace 'Copy' with 'Set Variable' (Using only one $ for that script?) and should I replace all the 'Paste's with 'Set Field'? Or is there a more reliable way to do this? Thanks so much and a very happy new year to you!
  5. I wonder if you could be so kind to help me. I've got a list of 18 vocabulary fields that need to have a word entered into each one in order to display their images. Alongside these vocabulary fields I've got a portal that displays a list of words. I would like to create script inside the portal that enters the portal row, copies the contents and then pastes it into the next empty vocabulary field. I have tried 'Go to Portal Row', Go to Related Record' etc. and have had no luck whatsoever. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much,
