Hi Charles,

Others have posted solutions, so I'll focus on what happened. I could be wrong, 
but I believe Rev looked at this part of your script:

 >   if item 1 of theMatch and item 2 of theMatch and item 3 of theMatch =
 > item 1 of theMatch2 and item 2 of theMatch2 and item 3 of theMatch2 then
 >     put item 4 of theMatch2 into field "ssFld"
 >   end if

.. and thought this is what you meant (weird spacing added to improve readability):

if (     (item 1 of theMatch = true) \
      and (item 2 of theMatch = true) \
      and (item 3 of theMatch = true)      ) \
=  (     (item 1 of theMatch2 = true) \
      and (item 2 of theMatch2 = true) \
      and (item 3 of theMatch2 = true)     )
then
   put item 4 of theMatch2 into field "ssFld"
end if	

So everything before the "=" resolves to 'false', as does the entire part after 
the "=". So the conditions ultimately resolve to:

if (false) = (false)
then
   put item 4 of theMatch2 into field "ssFld"
end if	

So item 4 of theMatch2 would be put into field "ssFld" every time. Is that 
consistent with the results you were getting?

Thanks -
Phil Davis
