Problem with field references

Try this:

   put the long name of field "Field Name" into myFld
   put the text of myFld

While running this syntax, make sure that you are aware of what is in  
the variable myFld, e.g. by changing the last line into

   put myFld & cr & the text of myFld

Good luck with this.
