David, et al:

If Transcript works like HyperTalk, this will not happen because "if there
is a field..." refers only to the current card, not the card containing the
control receiving the message:

I made a copy of my HC Home stack and placed the following handler in the
card script of card "User Preferences":

on testit
  if there is a card field "User Name" then put "Found It" else beep
end testit
