Yes, but I just needed to modify a maximum of two fields and in a set of 12.
It would result in ugly and inefficient code.
hmm, unless there's some way to automatically convert an object to a
dictionary? (like a list comprehension or dict())
For the record, the obvious solution is to take these two away from this
particular record, but a general solution would be better.

I tried this script:
ObjFields = Products.PythonScripts.standard.Object()
ObjFields = Fields
ObjFields.a_field = 10
and I got the same error:

Can you spot what's wrong?
