It's definitely possible to do, once you figure out the syntax you need for this object. I'm guessing you must have gotten past the $oBank->Init() method call without issues. What happens if you just use this for the value assignment? $oBank->Fields(BANK_fld_ACCOUNT_NAME) = "Test account"; $oBank->Fields(BANK_fld_ACCOUNT_NO) = "12345"; $oBank->Fields(BANK_fld_BANK) = "Bank of the Nation"; $oBank->Fields(BANK_fld_BRANCH_NAME) = "State Street Branch"; It also looks like you're getting errors from the call to $oBank->Save() saying that the method is not defined.
