FM 7 Flaw?

Recommended Posts

I created a script that would take the ID for a student, copy it, enter into Find Mode, adds an asterisk into another field and executes the find. The script, after performing the find, would then send the user to a related layout and provide the found records in list view.

Now, this worked fine for weeks. Then, all of a sudden, it stopped working. Nothing changed. I'm the only one who can modify scripts and that didn't happen.

Nowadays, the script puts you in Find Mode no problem but tells the user no records could be found. If I just climb in and run the same Find manually it finds all the records with no problem, but this defeats the purpose of efficiency and ease of use.

Could this sudden change be a FM 7 flaw?

Thanks.

If you are using the "Copy" and or "paste" function check you haven't deleted them from the layout.

Nah, that's not happening because all the records are in tact and the script is void of any 'Clear' statements.

Put a Pause step before Perform Find[] and examine the request that the script produces.

The "Copy" script step uses the Clipboard. Could your system have changed? Update the OS? Change prefs regarding the clipboard?

Try Set Fields and globals.
