When I have a screen form and I have a database I "spread" field values from the database in "bags", like X to the layout fields Y. After completing the screen form, I "gather" the values in the opposite way. ; db fields x: [i j k] ; screen fields y: [l m n] ; just for didactic purposes :-) - mimicking loading of the db set y [1 2 3] set x reduce y ; mimicking on-screen update of the form set x [4 5 6] ; now the "swap" set y reduce x

I use blocks like X,Y for word name repository sets, which I can modify in one place of my code and reuse/reference them several times. -- Best regards, Geza mailto:[geza67--freestart--hu]
