Hi Scott,

The revdb_querylist function is just returning tab/cr delimited text  
so you can loop through all results like this:

set the itemDelimiter to tab
repeat for each line tResult in tList
	put item 1 of tResult &cr after tNames
	put item 2 of tResult &cr after tEmails
	put item 3 of tResult &cr after tSubscribed
end repeat

I'm not quite sure how your edit boxes are being used.  Are you  
trying to just put one of the records from the tList result into the  
edit boxes?  Or are you trying to edit all of the names, emails, etc.  
at once?  If you are just trying to edit one result at a time then I  
would probably modify the query to return the specific record you are  

If you just want to work with all resorts at once then you could do  
this to get at record 3:

put item 1 of line 3 of tList into field "edName"
put item 2 of line 3 of tList into field "edEmail"
put item 3 of line 3 of tList into field "edSubscribed"
