Hi, and Welcome to the RunRev community :-)
To learn scripting skills, you could download the
MetaCard tutorial on the Metacard ftp-site. Goto:
And download the files:
Open mtp.mc from RunRev and go through the tutorials.
That should get you a long way.
As for your script, try this:
switch (field "login")
## field "login" = the text of field "login"
put "hello susie" into field "MyMessage"
put "hello ros" into field "MyMessage"
put "not registered" into field "MyMessage"
## no break needed here, as it's the last one
Hope this helped,
