Maybe someone can shed some light on the best way to put a field
reference into a variable (or custom property).
If I do this:
set the uFldRef of me to the long name of fld "whatever"
It seems to work great.
Then, if I try to access that custom property:
put the uFldRef of the target into tFldIWant
it seems to work fine.
But when I try to do something, like:
put the text of fld tFldIWant into x -- error
put the text of tFldIWant into x - error
put fld tFldIWant into x --error
put tFldIWant into x --this simply puts the long name (or ID) of
the field in the variable, not its contents
If I try "the long ID" I get the same error.
Here is the error I get:
Chunk: no such object
Chunk: can't find object
put: error in expression
Handler: error in statement
So my question is, what is the method you use to save a specific
field reference in a variable or custom property?
