Go cd 500

Hi Ray,

You should not use numbers for card names. If you have to use a number, add character, e.g. x500.

To temporarily work around this problem, you can use a repeat loop that gets the id and name of each card:

repeat with x = 1 to number of cards
  if the name of cd x is "500" then
    put the id of cd x into myID
    exit repeat
  end if
end repeat

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
