Record?  Haven't heard of *that* data type...

That's because whatever it is you're passing in for the value of Fields 
doesn't have the attribute you're attempting to assign to.

If Fields is a mapping (like REQUEST.form), you may want:

Fields['a_field'] = 1

If that's not it, could you provide a bit more info on what's getting 
passed in for Fields?
