The localvalue( function returns the value of a local variable.


This function has one parameter:

variable – is the name of the variable you want to access. In general, this variable name must be enclosed in quotes (unless you are using a formula to calculate the name).


This function makes it possible to access a local variable only. If there is no local variable with the specified name this function will return an error, even if there is some other type of field or variable with this name.

This example dials the phone using the default area code stored as a local variable named DefaultAreaCode.

dial localvalue("DefaultAreaCode")+Phone

Note: An alternate name for this function is: grablocalvariable(
