Hi Zopistas,

Firstly, a big thank you to all thos epeople who helped me with KeyError 
problem when accessing LDAP entries.
Just so the solution makes it onto the mailing list archive (for the next 
bunny who has the same problem) the solution was to add the following to 
each of your variables


...so that when Zope came across entries without that attribute it didn't barf.

I now have one last problem. I can now access all entries from the LDAP 
directory using the notation <dtml-var sn missing = &nbsp;>- all except one 
- the "title" attibute .

I am guessing that it is because Zope uses "title" to reference the title 
of the object in the zope database, and therefore won't let you get at the 
ldap variable using the normal:
<dtml-var title> notation.

Is there any way I can pinpoint the LDAP variable instead of the object 
title in zope? I have no control over the ldap server and attributes name, 
so I can't change it at that end.

When I test the LDAP filter method I can see the variable (it lists all of 
the attributes of the LDAP record), but I can't reference it in DTML.
My filter method is called 'Academics' and just extracts a list of 
academics in the biology department here at Monash University. I'm sure 
there must be a way using python notation, but not being a python expert 
(yet!), I could do with a few clues...

Any ideas?

Thanks again...
