    Default Filed Values into Veriables?

    Question. Do I have to open the Form first to get the fields that I want to work with?

    I thought at this point (see attached) I could select from a list of forms?

    The field object doesn't really exist until the form is opened and it is defined. However, you just have to load the form, not show it. You could load the form, fill any variables, and close the form. It doesn't have to be displayed.

    You don't have to open the table. In action scripting go to variables, get from external table and follow the prompts. There will be an article on this in the next newsletter.
