Can I look up a DocLink using @Db functions?

Yes, but you will have to perform two Lookups. One Lookup will return the contents of the Rich Text Field containing the DocLink itself, and the other will return the contents of the field called, "$LINKS." This second Lookup must return its value to a field also called, "$LINKS." The information in the $LINKS field is the pointer information which tells the DocLink where to go. When you perform the two Lookups, the first field will become data type 'Rich Text' and the $LINKS field will become data type 'Doclink Reference List.' After saving and closing the document, the DocLink will be activated. Failing to follow these steps will result in the error message: "The DocLink Database Cannot be Located."
