Thread: xbasic syntax for running operations?

    Default xbasic syntax for running operations?

    Can anyone tell me the correct syntax to run a saved operation from within a script? I have used

    :report.preview("name_of_report") successfully in the past, and I am looking for something similar to run an export. I have tried several variations on :operation.table_name("name _of_export") with no success. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

    -Bill

    This is from the xbasic manual, page 267:

    :Update.run("Increase Salaries", "Rating = 'Excellent' ")

    Filter is optional.

    You can specify "Run operation" when choosing action script, and then convert it to xbasic. It'll give you the proper syntax.

    Thanks Jake. I should have thought of converting an action script to xbasic. I have used that before to find the correct syntax for things and it is very handy. Thanks again
