NOTE:  There are two versions of the scripting engine available to you. The T eScript engine is the traditional, previously available engine. The ST eScript engine provides enhancements, including strong typing of variables and the Script Assist utility. Except for a few key differences, the ST eScript engine is backward compatible with eScript created with the T eScript engine. In this document, the engines are referred to by name only in contexts requiring differentiation.

For information on Script Assist and how to enable the eScript engine you want to use, see Using Siebel Tools. For information about functional differences between the engines, see Siebel eScript Language Reference (this document).
