Hi, sorry to go into your discussion, but maybe
I dont know if this is a valid but something like:

<get-field pool="MyPoolName" table="MyTableName" field="MyRequestedfield"
condition="anotherfield=3" default="ERROR"/>

internal process:
1-Create a conection to "MyPoolName" Database.
2-Create a SQL string to retrieve the field from the given table using the
given condition:

SELECT MyRequestedfield FROM MyTableName WHERE MyRequestedfield;

3-If there is ONE recordset then return the VALUE for the field,
  else: return default

4-Close the connection to the database pool.

What about something like this? this is just a first draft.
Is something like that what are you looking for?

It would be enough to take the company name from a Database.

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo.
