Why do I have a queer feeling that it might not be a bad idea to name 
and save the target stack prior to
any copying?

Just set up [RunRev 4.0, Ubuntu-Linux] 2 stacks: "teststack" and 
"target"; saved both.

Popped a field "fF" on "teststack" and a button with the following script:

on mouseUp
    copy fld "fF" of card 1 of stack "teststack" to card 1 of stack "target"
end mouseUp

bingo!

tried the same in the Messagebox:

copy fld "fF" of card 1 of stack "teststack" to card 1 of stack "target"

bingo!

quod erat demonstrandum old chap . . .  :)
