Can someone please explain me the difference between the use of "..value" and ".". At many places I have noticed we assign/fetch the value to/from a record field using .VALUE and sometimes without that!

What is the actual concept behind this?

Re: Difference between recordname.fieldname.value and ...

recordname.fieldname is the old style peoplecode format. They both do the same thing but you should get in the habbit of using the field object format and that is recordname.fieldname.value

One thing you need to keep in mind when using recordname.fieldname.value with INSTALLATION or OPTIONS Tables is the the field object format doesn't work. For example, INSTALLATION.TL.Value = "N" is NOT valid. you need to go back to the old way such as INSTALLATION.TL.Value = "N".
