I've seen some discussion regarding how to fetch the value of an abstracted field. Two methods spring to mind. Assuming variables are set for $tableName and $fieldName, we have either:


GetField ( $tableName & "::" & $fieldName )


Evaluate ( $tableName & "::" & $fieldName )


So, I'd like to solicit opinions from the community. I tend to use Evaluate, but some folks insist GetField is a better way. What is your opinion? And why?
