Exclamation quick setFields question

I have used setFields in the past to set variables to values inside boxes and spheres using sphereToCell and boxToCell, but now I have a different problem, and I cannot believe how frustrating it has been to find a solution:

I already have a cellSet named RadSource. I want to set the variable q to 1.0 in all cells in this cellSet. When I use a topoSetSource type that clearly does not exist, I see the list of 43 types that do exist. Among them, cellToCell looks promising for what I want to do. When I simply replace my meaningless topoSetSource to cellToCell, expecting the error to tell me how to use it, the comments are not at all helpful:

keyword set is undefined in dictionary ".cellToCell"

file: .cellToCell from line 37 to line 42.

From function dictionary::lookupEntry(const word&, bool, bool) const
in file db/dictionary/dictionary.C at line 437.

FOAM exiting

Could someone please help me figure out how to set the value of q in the cells in this cellSet to 1.0?

As is often the case, within 10 minutes of posting this question, I was able to solve the problem. For anyone else who needs the solution, it was:

set RadSource;
volScalarFieldValue q 1.0

Hope this helps someone else out there!
