I guess I don't really know what you mean when you say it does work
in the inspector, but you don't expect some of your software won't
As a diagnostic, try this script in the scrollbar:
put the thumbPosition of me into theNum
add 50 to theNum
put the thumbposition of me & cr & round(theNum) into fld 1
So that you can see both the thumbposition and the evaluated sum in the field.
This script should give the same results
on scrollBarDrag tPos
put tPos + 50 into theNum
put tPos & cr & round(theNum) into fld 1
