@Zach Perry - thanks, I tried that but couldn't get it to return anything. I wonder if I just have the syntax wrong?
@Peter Mogilnitski - I was using 'Agency' because that field is referencing a specific entry in another custom table. Reading it back, my explanation was a little unclear. Just to clarify, I have two custom tables. Custom table 1 contains information about individual agents (name, address, etc.) and Custom table 2 contains individual job listings. Each job belongs to a single agency, so I'm using the custom table item selector on Custom table 2 to reference the appropriate agency record in custom table 1. So the field 'Agency' in Custom table 2 contains the GUID for the field in Custom table 1. In my question, 'Agency' is just the field name that should return me the GUID.
I appreciate both you guys helping. I'm fairly new to Kentico, .Net and the Microsoft software stack (much more familiar with a LAMP stack) so I'm sure there's pretty basic stuff I'm missing.
