Inserting Calculated Result after Get(lastmessagechoice)

I'm running a script which asks the user to select 1 of 3 choices from the custom dialog box.  I want to set the field value based on the response.  I'm using - If get(lastmessagechoice) = "1" select field = "order".  However the result I get is that a "0" is inserted into the field rather then "order"

Appreciate any help

I assume you meant "Set Field" not "Select Field?"

It sounds like the field is defined as a number rather than a text field. That will cause it to display a zero when you insert a text value into it. Change the field's definition to be a text field.

Another suggestion:
Instead of using a series of script steps to check the lastmessagechoice and set the field, you can do the whole thing in a single step using the a set field script step to assign the field the value of the Case() function, like this:

Case ( get(LastMessageChoice) = 1; "Order"; get(LastMessageChoice) = 2; "Second Option"; get(LastMessageChoice) = 3; "Third Option)
why do you use a custom dialog box to define a field? why don't you make that field displayed directly as a radio button?

Thanks for the response .... the case function is very neat.  Thanks
indeed, but that's more clicks!
