If you have the long ID, then don't refer to it as "field theFieldID" because the long ID already contains the word "field". That may have been the problem. I have tripped over that before. When I use the long ID or any value that contains the object type, I call it something like theObject, so my script looks something like:
get the script of theSourceObject
It reads naturally that way.
