Variables in a show message command?

Is it possible to show a value from a database field in the "Show Message" script command? Or, can you only have fixed text in these messages?

I would like to display a message like, "Are you sure you want to delete the record for 'Joe Smith'? " where "Joe Smith" is a field in the current record.

If you're working on a Mac, AppleScript can solve the problem for you. If you subscribe to ISO FileMaker Magazine, I wrote an article on how to do exactly this in issue 48 or 49. If you don't subscribe, let me know, and I describe how it works. But also you might want to check it out, since I think it's the best FMP related periodical out there.
