Is this a converted HyperCard stack? If so, the hcAddressing property is 
set to true by default and you must refer to objects the way HC did. 
That means that "Field" refers only to background fields, and to specify 
a card field you must use "card field 'questions'".

You can set the hcAddressing property of the stack to false and save the 
stack. After that, references to objects will work as they do in native 
Rev stacks and you don't have to specify the layer. However, this will 
break many HC stacks where scripts assume that "button 2" refers only to 
card buttons.
