A problem with clearing fields on marked cards

I made some changes in my script, which works. I am carefully checking any field on a marked card to see if there are problems.

Here is the revised script

on mouseUp
   repeat with y = 1 to the number of marked cds ------> Clears fields on marked cards
      repeat with u = 1 to the number of fields of marked card y 
         if the lockText of field u of card y is false then put empty into field u of marked card y
         --         if the short name of field u of marked card y CONTAINS "field" then put empty into field u of marked card y
      end repeat 
   end repeat 
end mouseUp

What do you think?
