Hi Tom,

I think the engine is looking for a field with a quote
in its name. However, this gives me a chance to work
the wonders of the 'merge' function again :-)
Try the following script :

--
on preOpenCard
  repeat with v = 1 to 8
    put merge("field [[quote]]myLabel[[v]][[quote]]")
\
        into tFieldRef
    set the visible of tFieldRef to false
  end repeat
end preOpenCard
--

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
