Hi, I am new to Filemaker and would need some help in the following issue: I would like to determine the fully qualified field name (<table name>::<field name>) assigned to the layout object (text field e.g.) that has the focus.  Important condition, that the active layout has objects (text fields) from more than one table and the function/procedure should be able to determine the fully qualified field name for each of these objects.  Any help kindly appreciated.

Not sure why you need this, but you can get it using:

 Get ( ActiveFieldTableName ) & "::" & Get ( ActiveFieldName )
