Hello,

I have a question regarding fields. I have a document that is an employee information record. I want to be able to automatically generate First Initial. Last Name automatically and generate initials. For example, J. Smith and JS or JTS if it has a middle initial. I want to be able to pull the Employee Name which is LastNAME, First Name into other documents along with the Initials and the first initial last name. I would like to use @prompt with @dbcolumn or @dblookup. Most of the time @dbcolumn works if there are only two things I am pulling from a look up view. But Can I pull 3 or more fields using @dbcolumn or @dblookup?
