Hi Dan

thanks for taking a look 22.51 here in scotland and I'm a bit tired so hope 
I make sense.

This is defined in the first stack Armbase Database Designer where there is 
a button "new" that clones a stack that the user can name. In the first 
stack there is a button and a field. the button has  the above script. 
(removing the quotes from the tfielname make no difference, still an error) 
The target stack does not have the script.
