when I click help, this is what VFP 9.0 help says about this error message
This message is produced by the scope operator when the parent class you have specified is not in the inheritance hierarchy of the current (THIS) object. For example, this error will occur if you put FORMSET::Click in the Click event of a form that is not contained in a form set.

I am calling the full search search method with four correct parameters. It gives me a message box saying "Object is not contained in a FORM".
