Hi Mark,

As said Mark Schonewille, getting the complete error message would be  
better :-)
But here are some clues:
I assume that gRecord is declared :-)
I assume also that 'there is a card "EditRecord" of stack "names".

If it is the case, I suspect that you run some code at openCard or  
preOpencard of "EditRecord":
Probably the error comes from: or gRecord does not contains an  
expected value or there is some error in the code that manipulates  
Hope this helps.
