Creating A Time/Date Range Value Using Lotusscript

Here is a quick and easy way to create a Notes document field (item) of Notes Data Type "Time/Date List or Range" (for example: to the time-range value of "09:00 am - 05:00 pm") using LotusScript. Programmatically in formula language it is simply: FIELD appointment_time:=[09:00 am - 05:00 pm] But to do a similar operation in L/S its quite a different story. Once again, its good old Evaluate() fcn to the sole rescue. Dim doc as NotesDocument...

doc.appointment_time="" dummy=Evaluate( {@SetField("appointment_time"; [09:00 AM - 05:00 PM])}, doc )
