Unhappy Update DBlink value inside events keyframe

I have a strange behaviour in Lyric.
I want to have a footer bar with toplines (just texts).
I have an xls file on ODBC with 20 toplines.
Toplines must change every 10 seconds.

How did I plan to do it
1) place an event to trigger animation called "update_toplines"
2) inside this "update_toplines" animation I have an event node
3) event node reads dblink recordnumber of hidden topline text and increments it
4) then I run updatedblinkfields and play an animation of hidden topline replacing the current topline.

Heres the macro

PHP Code:
ActiveCanvas.Selection.Execute("Duet Channel 1")
set fb = FrameBuffer(ActiveFramebuffer)
dbln = fb.SceneByName("499").Template("toplineBOTTOM").DBlink.RecordNumber + 1
.SceneByName("499").Template("toplineBOTTOM").DBlink.RecordNumber dbln
All is fine except that text is updated only once. And the weird thing is that messagebox appears only once after first invoke, the text is updated once too. Then message box never shows up again, and nothing is updated, though animation is played.

If I click my animation button quckly in the playout panel many times - it randomly "breaks through" and message box shows up and texts update. But without this insane clicking macro stops working after first start.

Any ideas? It seems that macro steals the engine and never leaves it. As if it's still running further with empty code and prevent rerunning the macro.

Can you end the script with an

end if

To make sure the macro is not running? I have no idea if this will help or not. If not, I would recommend emailing and CC'ing
