No, I don't think so. And I don't exactly know how to get at it
from there, either.

This would get it, though:

    [perl tables=`join " ", @{$Config->{ProductFiles}}`]
	    # This is not general, only for flypage
	    my $key = q{[item-code]};

	    for(@{$Config->{ProductFiles}}) {
		    return $_ if $Db{$_}->record_exists($key);	
	    return "NONE";

NONE could happen in on-the-fly situations or if it was
called explicitly.
