parentheses within string break value()

I did

on mouseUp
   put "Abc" & 45 & "123(def)" into tTest
   put  value (tTest)
end mouseUp

tTest results in Abc45123(def) so you are trying to get the value of the result of a function called Abc45123() where you pass a value in a variable called def. At run time, do you have a function Abc45123()? Is there a variable def? If the answer is no to either of these, well there's your problem! :-)
