Try to list the whole path to the stack: ie.
get line 1 of field "My Field" of stack "Substack"
put it into field "My Field 2" of stack "Main Stack"
put field "My field" of stack "Substack" into field "My Field 2" of
stack "Main Stack"
The docs are great once you get a feel for the language. Go to the
developer contributions part of the Rev site and download some example
applications and dig into them. That always helps me in seeing how
others treat the language.
