I have 100 fields in a form ., when i create a document . i need to assign values to those fields
but i dont want to write all 100 fields manually  because their name are like

field1
field2
field3
field4
.
.
.                       that goes like that

so i put a for loop in the for loop preceding the string "field"  appended by counter value of the for loop i get the name of the field and then try to assign value to it but i get the error

use of illegal property  below is my code. how can i achieve this?

      For x=0 To datacount  
            
                  doc.KHedef&Cstr(x+1)="value1"                                                             doc.Ilgilihoshin&Cstr(x+1)="value2"
                  doc.HedefBitis&Cstr(x+1)="value3"
                  doc.BasariOlcum&Cstr(x+1)="value4"
                   doc.Agirlik&Cstr(x+1)="value5"

try using doc.replaceitemvalue(itemname$,value)

you can specify the field name as a string

i.e.
in declarations
dim item as notesitem

in code
set item=doc.replaceitemvalue("KHedef"  & Cstr(x+1), "value1")

repeat for each variable you have to define.

Or, shorter

Call doc.replaceitemvalue("KHedef" & (x+1), "value1")

If would even make sense to store the strings in an array, and loop through that one too, like this:

Dim fields As Variant
fields= Split("KHedef;HedefBitis;others", ";") ' to create an array
For x=1 To datacount  +1                             ' why fro 0 to datacount?
      Forall fld In fields
            Call doc.replaceitemvalue(fld & x, "value1")
      End Forall
Next

Of course, the values can be put in an array as well...
