In a method:
msgInfo("", tc."lname")
-- Works! --  giving DIXON
x = "tc."+ "\"" + strfld1 + "\""
msgInfo("", x)
-- Does not work --  giving tc."lname" instead of looking up the value in the field
Any suggestions on how to force the evaluation? In other languages, like Visual FoxPro, this idea is called macro substitution and is handled via a '&'. However &strfld1 doesn't work.
