How to copy a data card variable from template card to new file card??

This seems like it should be easy, and I find it hard to believe there is no way to do this as it should be simple/basic functionality, but I'm struggling here.

-  I have a template card.  On the template card is an edit box.  The edit box is tied to variable T_Score.  The value comes from an input formula which generates a number based on which of a group of checkboxes on the template card are selected by the user.

-  The file card for the new file that is created by this template also has an edit box.  It is tied to variable F_Score.

-  Lastly, I've created a template variable called TEMP_Score.


What I need, is to copy T_Score (result of the input formula) to F_Score.

Problem I'm having, is there doesn't seem to be any way to copy T_Score to TEMP_Score.

It appears I can only populate TEMP_Score using the following options:

-  Environment variable (can't copy from a data card "X2" variable)

-  Format string (I actually tried copying the input formula here - it crashes windows explorer.  Repeatably.  And it doesn't actually populate the variable with the score.)

-  Name of logged in user (nope)

-  Prompt the user (nope)

-  Serial number (nope)


So to reiterate, what I need is a way to populate the TEMP_Score template variable from the data card (X2) variable T_Score.

How can I do this?

It seems like it should be simple, but I'm not seeing how I can do it???
