It will work, but the two statements above aren't equivalent. "Target" 
returns the entire content of the field. Since you want to capture only 
the selected line, you'd need to isolate that as in the second example.

Using "target" it would be something like this:

put item 2 of line (the hilitedline of the target) of target into pID

Since that's more convoluted than the second method, there's probably no 
reason to bother changing it.
