Field not validating by calculation correctly when entering through show dialogue
Script step.

I am trying to force entry of five characters into a field through a show dialogue
entry. Also not able to clear the global entry field correctly using the set field script
step before showing the dialogue. I can get the field to validate correctly only if I do
not use the validate by calculation option in the field definition.

Please see attached.

Using FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced Win/Mac

Thank You for any help with this.

i've never used field validation on a global field,

usually don't like the user feedback using the validation settings that are presented to the user, some cases they get an option to "revert" which is not that explanatory, 
having the logic in the script you can control how the presentation is displayed to the user, and trap or branch to other logic as needed. 

cheers
