I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents.

Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent?

Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg 

sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable.
view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses.
