[EXTERNAL]Item $refs stored or to character?

I haven't tried this, but would not expect a stored-and-later-retrieved item reference to be valid. I would advise storing the text notation path for the reference, and then after retrieving use the "Set reference" command to bind the reference from the saved notation string, something like:

Set reference myRef to [savedNotationString]

You should be able to capture the notation path from "Calculate savedNotationString as myRef.$fullname"

Hope this helps,

Can $ref’s be stored in a list in a SQL database, retrieved and they will work?

Or, can you change them to character value of ref?  I thought I had done that before but can’t figure it out again.
