Web companion Buttons don't work

I have a Filemaker Pro 5.5 database running with Web Companion.  Some of the buttons don't seem to work if I run them as a script, but if I run a command within them they work fine.  However then some others don't work, such as button used to Print a record out.  which just uses the Print () command.

Any ideas.  By the way the whole database runs fine locally from within Filemaker itself.

I've been through all of that before, and there is nothing there, because I have since found out in fact that the Web Companion is not capable of doing what we require.  You need to install an advanced Web publisher front-end such as Lasso.

Instead since I posted the question I have rebuilt the database using SQL Server, ColdFusion Ultradev & MX, and Dreamweaver Ultradev/MX.

It is now far more efficient than it ever was, and so much more diverse in it's range of facilities.
