Not knowing what is in the field, I will take a guess.
set itemdel to "|"
put item 1 of cd field "storage" into testValue
breakpoint --now look at the string in testValue
put lineoffset(it, item 1 of cd field "storage") --
-- no space after 'lineoffset'
Also remember that an 'item' is considered a smaller chunk than a
line, so that the following does not make sense to Rev
put line 2 of item 4 of field "storage"
What you would need to do to follow the rules is
set the lineDel to "|"
set the itemDel to cr
put item 2 of line 4 of field "storage"
-- now multiple visible lines in the field would be considered as
items for the purposes of chunk expressions.
By the way, cd field is not necessary in Rev, but works because of the
compatibility routines that allow much of Hypercard to work in Rev.
Hope this helps,
