Thanks for explaining further, now I hope I understand and I think I
have the solution :-)

When you open a HyperCard stack in Rev, the property called
"HCaddressing" is set to true. This means that cards & fields are
referred to as "card fields", "bg fields", "card buttons" & "bg
buttons". As in HyperCard, the default is for fields to be background
fields and buttons to be card buttons.

If you are just trying to access them using "field" or "button", it
will work for some but not for all. Your importer script needs to work
out whether the object is a card or background object and address it
