Hi, David.

Sounds like you've got the basics. Remember that everything is case
sensitive. Put the page name relative to your pages directory.

Failing that, check your configuration to see if the directive is really
enabled by placing this on a page (hide it inside a comment if this is a
live catalog):

return $Config->{PageSelectField};

And see what Interchange has for the current item (on the flypage):

[data table="products" name="template_page" key="[item-code]"]

That should narrow it down a bit.
