Bonjour André,

I tried the following:

on mouseUp
   local ThisText
   put "a,b,c" into ThisText
   replace comma with cr in ThisText
   go to stack "StackTwo"
   put ThisText into line 1 of fld "ThisField"
end mouseUp

And it worked as expected.
The only thing I notice in your script is that you write:
go to StackTwo
And that's not correct syntax :-)
