I'm not sure why it would work one place and not another, but there is a 
difference in how you are getting your content. In the one that works, 
you're using a variable. In the one that doesn't you're using:

   fld "Depth" & "m"

This may cause the engine to look for a field named "depthm" which 
doesn't exist. Instead, try forcing the field name this way:

  put (fld "Depth")& "m"

or you could use two lines:

  get fld "Depth"
  get it & "m"

Just a stab in the dark, probably won't matter, but it's worth a try. 
There shouldn't be any difference in how the engine evaluates that 
statement really.

Another thing to try is to get the result after each of the lines that 
don't work, and if the result isn't empty, show it in an answer dialog. 
That way you may see a reason for the failure.
