referencing selected item in repeating field - FileMaker

Is there a way to detect/reference highlighted text in a repeating field? I am modifying another co-worker's FM database and they used repeating fields. What I want to do is write a script that would reference one the hilighted "entry" in the repeating field. I don't think FM gives you that much control ... to reference hilighted text. Thanks....

    Default Re: referencing selected item in repeating field

    I think if you write a script that does a COPY to get the text, then set a
    global field to Status ( CurrentRepetitionNumber ) to get the repetion #,
    then PASTE the text you just copied into another global field (or
    whereever), it may work.

    But, I don't think you can put it on a button since clicking the button will
    take you away from the field. So you may have to have it called from the
    Script menu.
