I've sent this script to show syntax use of currentview.body.objectname.text
The ".text"  syntax is used regardless if the field type is text, numeric or
date. If you want to manipulate a numeric field with a mathematical operation,
then use Val(currentview.body.numeric_field_object_name.text)*0.6. Date fields
have similiar script operators.
If your object name(field name) is two words use a ~(tilde) in place of the
currentview.body.Account~ Number.text
