Accessing parameters in URL

Does anyone have a working example of how to read parameters from a url. I have seen several posts with code like the below but it isn't working for me. I have the below code on the OnOpen event.

The url: http://us5076webd/QvPlugin/opendoc.htm?document=AP%20Published/test.qvw?F1=5

sub SelectDefaultSettings



sub myCurrency = ActiveDocument.GetVariable("F1").GetContent. String
set ActiveDocument.Field("F1"). Select myCurrency

Can anyone help?

Accessing parameters in URL

Is F1 predefined in the document? You must predefine variables to be able to receive them as parameters.

I have modified my code because initially I had F1 as a field and variable. I changed it to :

set myVar = ActiveDocument.Variables("Var1").GetContent.String
set TgtCurr = ActiveDocument.GetField("F1")
TgtCurr.Select myVar

Under Settings Variable Overview, I added variables for both myVar and Var1.

When I run the above, I get:

Macro parse failed. Functionality was lost
Error: Object required: '[string: "2"]'

Any other ideas?

Remove "set" from "set myVar....".

Set is only used when the function returns a type of Object.
