How to set Global variables with data from a 1 record table.

I need to be able to customize the company information for the program as the program is to be sold to two companies...

Also, any good bocks on Alpha. I disappointed that there weren't any in the package and my old ones from release 3 are just plain ole old.

This was done in the interactive editor, could the autoexec script.

dim global myvar as c
tbl = table.open("avendors")
myvar = alltrim(tbl.Ven_name)

? myvar
= "Alpha Software"

Go to the "Learning Center" for the documentation.

I really liked Dr. Wayne's book: Application Programming in Alpha Five.
