Setting dbVar Value
 
So how does this work?
I managed to read from a database variable, but how do I set it?

//Look up ACmax of the item with name %2 in the database of protected items

ACmax=%db(@ACMAXDB,%2)

#IF (@ACMax>0)
{
//%2 found in db with protected items}
//Set the current AC to the max AC for the item (repaired)
//It is for setting the item to fully repaired.
@ACCurrentDB(%2)=@ACmax
}

The @ACCurrentDB(%2)=@ACmax is wrong

what is the right code to set the AC-value in the second column in the databasevariable @ACcurrentDB for the item with name %2 in the first column ?
I couldn't find an example in the documentation.

First off, you don't use the @ when setting the value of a variable, that's for referencing only.
Second, %db is a getter, you need a setter, like #ADDKEY

#ADDKEY ACCurrentDB %2 @ACMax

Finally, please make a new thread if your issue isn't the same as the OP. We have an unlimited supply of threads. No need to reuse old dinosaurs. I went ahead and moved this one for you.
