Thank you guys!
I had placed the itemdel 'tab' in quotes, that's why it didn't work. Sigh...
Works fine now.
And thanks for the great "quirky" suggestion. :)

    Hi Eva,

    I'm not sure what you are having problems with, but if you want to
    get the items of a line, you need to set the itemdel to tab.

    set the itemDel to tab
    put item 2 of line 3 of myData into fld "Product"

    Best regards,

    Mark Schonewille
