Maybe I'm not following what you want to do here... a custom property of a
shared group is also shared, so you can't have multiple values without, as Pete
said, creating an array for them.

If you just want to get the text of a field in a shared group, though, then the
following code works for me in a behavior button (the shared group contains two
fields and you put a card number into field 2):

on mouseUp
  local tCard

  put field 2 into tCard
  put the text of field 1 of card tCard & cr after msg
end mouseUp

so I guess I don't understand what the problem is.
