Thanks, Ken, but it didn't.

Yes, that card has a field with the name that is the
value of the variable, temp2

Thanks, but I don't think so.  There's no field <temp2>
in the card of the stack which contains the custom
property providing input to the variable, temp2.  But the
problem, it seem to me, is using the value drawn from a
customproperty, putting it into a variable and then trying
to access a field of that name.  Since the button is part of
a background, and the value of the custom property will
vary, I don't see how working IDs into the mix will be viable.
