Thanks a lot Jacque and Jim; far much clearer for me now ;-))
So, as I need to get the number of cards of a given background "Bg1"
each time I create a new card from one which has this background on
it, I replaced copy/paste card (that I was trying before) with clone
Indeed, with copy/paste the number of cards in background Bg1 does not
increase by 1, while with clone this card it does.
Best regards from Grenoble

I was missing that; OK, with copy/past card the name of the background
remains but the ID changes

it works with clone card too

In my case, I need to keep the same name

Ok, I tried that, very usefull to better understand (I added "put cr &
the number of cds in bg "bg1"
