Set values on documents using an agent...

Hi experts,

I want to use an @formula based agent to set a value in a field of all the documents in a view.
This value must be entered by the user once and put on all the document within the view. When I create a agent that run on all the documents in the view, the agent will ask for every document the value that must be entered.

Is there a trick to do this, so the value must be entered once ?

Greetings,

Bob

For that you have to write two agents

One agent (with Run Once option) will get the value from the user and set it in a environment variable
eg:
Environment Dummy := @Prompt([okcanceledit]; ""; ""; "");
@Command([ToolsRunMacro]; "Second Agent")

Then run the second agent (which runs on all/selected docs) by picking up this environment variable
eg:
FIELD X := @Environment("Dummy); ""

When you start the first agent it will run second agent in the sequence

There is a typo (missing quote) in my second agent code, it should be
FIELD X := @Environment("Dummy"); ""

Thanks HemanthaKumar,

Really great solution... I didn't used two agents, but did set the environment variable in a action button and then called the agent....

Thanks again...
