sent message skipping card handler and going to stack

If your closeField handler is at stack level, then it will be able to call other handlers at stack level or higher only. If you want to call a handler lower in the message hierarchy, then you need to use the send command: send "updMyVal" to this cd.

If this doesn't answer your question, then you might want to post the syntax that calls updMyVal.
