Use this script step to ensure consistency and automate data entry. The active record is the last record where FileMaker Pro performed some activity, such as pasting text or moving into a field with the Go to Field script step.
If the specified field does not exist on the layout where the script is being performed, Insert From Last Visited returns an error code which can be captured with the Get(LastError) function.
If you manually select field data before you run this script step in FileMaker WebDirect, the script step performs as if you did not make a selection. To select field data before you run this script step in FileMaker WebDirect, use the Set Selection script step.
