I want to get the value of a field. But field name will be dynamic.

field1 := Testfield1;

Gets me the value of Testfield1 but this doesn't.

field2 := "Testfield1";
field3 := field2;

How to do that?

Thanks.

You can't, really.  You can do this in script and in R6, you can refer to the local field's value with @ThisValue.  If this is an external doc or a doc that was just saved, you can use @GetFieldValue to look up a particular field by name (text string name).

In R6, you can also get the content of a field using
    @GetField(field2)

I am using R5. Is there no opposite of @SetField in R5? @GetFieldValue is not valid in R5. I tried @GetDocField, even that is not working.

Any other idea?
