ExecDQL
ExecDQL("DQL Script","Data-Entry Field1","Data-Entry Field2","Data-Entry Field3","Data-Entry Field3","Export File")
ExecDQL("delete records in MyTable.")
ExecDQL("for My Table with MyField=Data-Entry Field1 ; modify records My Field2=data-entry field2 .",


To run a DQL script as a function from anywhere.

DQL is the most useful part of a DE application but it has had its limitations because it has been part of the DQL document (report). With ExecDQL we have liberated it, and you can now call a DQL from anywhere at anytime. It follow normal DQL syntax rules and it will generate an variable length export file if you include a file name as the last parameter (parameter 6).

Because it is a function you have to reference the Data-entry fields (transfered as parameter 2-5) with fixed names i.e Field1, Field2, Field3 and Field4. Other than that it is completely traditional DQL.

The ExecDQL has the GUI context of the document from where it is called, so you can read and manipulate the document from the DQL. This means that ExecDQL is not only a Data manipulating procedure it can also be a GUI manipulating procedure.

If you need more input variables than 4 you can simply pick them out of the Form you are calling the ExecDQL from with GetValue()

To make ExecDQL and other parts of DE8 more effective we have also introduced ESCAPE values in DE8 Strings.

Early in 8.0 we introduced CHR() to make it easier (possible) to use reserved letters in DE derivations and DQL etc. However it is a little awkward when you have to use ConCat() to joint things together for instance in a ExecDQL etc.

Ex. 
ExecDQL(concat("message ", chr(34), "Hello world!",chr(34)," window.","","","","","") 

So now you can simply do this with the escape charcter for ".
Ex.
ExecDQL("Message /'Hello World!/' window .") 

The observant reader also see that we don't add all the "" at the end of the function. This is news in 8.2 too. We have introduced variable number of parameters to make the functions more user friendly.

Up to now you had to be exact with your parameters and that could be a chore when the only thing you wanted was to execute a small line of commands with no export, and no input.

You will still have to follow the numbers so if you want to include an export file for ExecDQL you will need to include 4 empty "" as parameters before the export file name, but if you only need two data-entry parameters you can now simply add the two and skip the 3 last parameters.

LegEasy9 Onwards.

Support for ExecDQL system table. 
Default name: $$DQLStore$$
Default names in tables see below:

@name and #number. Also added support for settings under ini section [EXECDQL] in ini in DE and also prefix on server. Supported values are:

[EXECDQL]

DqlTableName= default $$DQLStore$$

DqlNameField= default DQLName

DqlIDField= default DQLId

DqlCodeField= default DQLScript

DqlBodyField= default DQLBody

Parameters


DQL: (String)

Here you can write a DQL script up to 255 characters long. It can do anything a DQL can do and has the same format as any other DQL

Data-Entry Field1: (String)

This is the parameter that you can reference inside the DQL script as Data-Entry field1.

Data-Entry Field2: (String)

This is the parameter that you can reference inside the DQL script as Data-Entry field2.

Data-Entry Field3: (String)

This is the parameter that you can reference inside the DQL script as Data-Entry field3.

Data-Entry Field4: (String)

This is the parameter that you can reference inside the DQL script as Data-Entry field4.

Export File: (String)

ExecDQL was designed to cover two major flaws in the DQL hierarchy of DFW. Manipulation and export so if you add a file name her and a list records in the DQL it will create a CSV file with column headers where the columns are in the order you put them in the list records.

PS! It is extremely quick.
