Windows Version problems

Hi Dixie,

I guess it IS a little confusing. I have a main-stack and two sub-stacks. The user has to answer questions presented in the Main-stack. The information required to answer the questions is located in one of the sub-stacks - The Reference Stack. When a question is presented in the Main-stack, information that will allow the question to be answered is presented by opening and going to a card in the sub-stack that contains that information. That is done automatically when the user goes to a card in the Main-stack with each question. The user must read the information and then return to the Main-stack to answer the question. The questions and the process are quite complex. Sometimes the user must answer a series of other questions in the sub-stack before s/he can answer the Main-stack question. Those questions are presented in yet a third stack. Based on how each of these questions is answered, eventually a report is generated that tells the user what they must do to their project in order to make it compliant with a set of rules that are outlined in the Reference Sub-stack. As I said, it IS quite complex.

Less confused? Probably not! (smile)

While within the IDE I can go back and forth between stacks by providing the name of the stack with the .rev on the end, but that doesn't help to identify the stacks in the standalone, so I thought that, if I stripped the .rev from the names, I'd be able to go back and forth in the standalone. It appears that I can't. So, I've been deluded into thinking that this is even possible in the MacOX standalone. This concept is/was the basis of my entire application.

I want to click on a button in one stack, go to another and retrieve some information stored there, return to the original stack and use the information to do something. In the IDE I can do this. It appears that I cannot do that in a standalone. Is my only solution to run the application using StackRunner?
