		<Setparam Field="TitleOptionFieldName" Value="RequiredAttendees"/>

In the script above, two new My Selection folders will be made. One will contain the Documents of type 'Memo' as well as 3 documents specified by their Note IDs. The displayed title of the documents in this folder will be the value of the Field 'Size'. The second MySelection folder will be made from the tree category who was last in focus, in this case the 'Appointments' category. The displayed title of the documents in this My Selection folder will be the value found in the Field 'RequiredAttendees'.
