run procedure


Control Command


The run procedure command opens the specified procedure document and executes its DQL instructions.


run procedure "PROCEDURE NAME" .


The run procedure command automatically opens and runs a previously defined procedure document. When the procedure finishes processing, the Control Procedure automatically resumes with the action following the run procedure command.

The procedure name can be a constant or any expression (including functions) that returns a text string specifying the desired procedure name.


 record entry "MEMBERS" .

 run procedure "PRINT INVOICES" .

 application status records .


This script tells DataEase: (1) Display the MEMBERS form so the user can enter new member records, (2) when the user closes the MEMBERS form, run the PRINT INVOICES procedure, then (3) display the status of the records in the current database.
