Hi, Geoff

Your situation looks like application logic confusion enhanced by the
weirdness of DTML.

Use a Python Script/Method to do the background heavy lifting. If you
are using <with>, <let>  and REQUEST.set() to access your items, it can
be done much more simply and understandably in a Python Script/Method.
