I initially tried to return the Task Name in an email to myself and it returned blank.

So, I tried the following, and the only variable that seems to return a value was %AMError.MachineName%.

ID : %AMTask.ID%
Name : %AMTask.Name%

I also tried creating a variable and assigning %AMTask.Name% to that new variable.

Still blank.

I must be missing a step to either 'turn on' these values, or to allow the task to assign them?

Hello Rick,


Are you running the task from Task Builder or Task Administrator?


Please try running from Task Administrator if you haven't and let us know your results.

Tried from both.  Same result.
Only MachineName is coming through.

We are on AutoMate Professional

AMTask references are intended for BPA/Enterprise. If you are trying to get the task name please use %GetTaskName()%.

That works better.
