    Hi Aniket,


    You want to store the values in the Field data type that is provided in AR.  Here is a sample of the code:


    Hope this helps:




    Server svr = new Server();

    svr.Login( "<server>", "<username>", "<password");

    Field myField;

    myField = svr.GetField("<form>",111 );  // Get a specific field from a form




    Hashtable lstFields = new Hashtable();                   // Need to inclde the "using System.Collections;" at file header

    lstFields = svr.GetAllFields("HPD:Help Desk");      // Get all the fields in the Form


    foreach(Field field in lstFields) {                     // Loop through the collection
