Thanks for the quick answer. It helped me a lot.

I got one little problem left. How do I assign a variable of the type 
"selection" the value of index 0 in the list?
I get the error: attribute-less object (assign or del)
As I understand, pom.Ewire should be of the type string.

pom = getToolByName(context, 'portal_ordermanager', None)
secure.test.ewire.dk","7059999 secure.ewire.dk"),"lines")
pom.Ewire = pom.EwireIDURL[0]    # I get an error here on this line
print pom.Ewire  # when the variable is set, this line works fine

best regards
