Bonjour Pierre,

Have a look at the entry for 'value' in the Transcript
Dictionary : in RunRev it ahs a second parmeter, which
allows you to set the object in which context to
evaluate the expression.

Example : 

-- script for field "snafu"
function foobar pTimes
  repeat pTimes
    put "foobar" after tResult
  end repeat
  return tResult
end foobar

-- now call that function from the message box
answer value("foobar(4)", fld "snafu")

-- and you should see "foobarfoobarfoobarfoobar"

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
