TABLE OF CONTENTS


CONVENTIONS USED IN THIS DOCUMENT

     
  []   Optional parameters.
  {}   Required parameters.
  |   Separates a list of "either/or" options.
  ()   Notes or additional comments.
  (Item) +x.x   Denotes items that were added in version "x.x".
  (Item) *   Denotes items that are becoming obsolete (but still backward compatible).
  (Item) ‑x.x   Denotes items that were removed in version "x.x".

Items can be commands (in which case the version information applies to the entire command), or command options (in which case the version information applies only to that option within that command).

All information comes from a base of version 2.0, i.e. Any command or command option without version designation has existed since 2.0.

When listing the acceptable values for parameters with pre-defined values, if not otherwise specified, the default value is listed first.

& Begins a "bind" variable for a database column or expression, regardless of type.
$ Begins a text or date +4.0 or binary+8.3.1 variable.
# Begins a numeric variable. (Decimal +4.0 , Floating point, or Integer +4.0).
% Begins a list variable. +5.1 (DDO only)
@ Begins a marker location variable, used for identifying position fields inside BEGIN-DOCUMENT paragraphs.
' (Single Quote). Surrounds a text literal. For example, 'Ray Ontko & Co.'.
Double to include a quote inside a literal. For example, '''Yes!!'', he said.'.
NOTE: The exclamation mark must also be doubled or the rest of the line will be considered a comment.
! Begins a comment, everything after the mark will not be compiled.
- A dash at the end of a line continues the command onto the next line.
{} Encloses a substitution variable.
[] Encloses a dynamic SQL variable, dynamic query variable, or dynamic table name.  Or a dynamic column name +3.0
0X Begins a literal Hex number +6.1.4  It is case INsensitive. Examples:
let #num = 0x53e58d
let #num = '0x53e58d'
move '0X53E58D' to #num
move 0X53E58D to #num !-- (not valid)
while #i < 0x53E58d !-- (check against 5,498,253)

Variable names may be of any length and are case insensitive. Variable names are known globally throughout a report, except if used in a local procedure, in which case they are local. To reference a global variable from within a local procedure, put an underscore between the special character and the variable name.


DATA TYPES +4.0

DECIMAL
Numeric with a precision (total number of digits used to represent the number) from 1 to 38 (default 16). Valid decimal numbers are in the range -9.9999999999999999999999999999999999999E+4096 to +9.9999999999999999999999999999999999999E+4096
 
FLOAT
Double precision floating point numeric. Range and precision of these are machine dependent. Default type for numeric variables (this was the only numeric type in version 3.x and before).
 
INTEGER
Numeric integers with a range of -2,147,483,648 to +2,147,483,648.
 
DATE

BINARY +8.3.1
Binary.
 
LIST +5.1 (DDO)
A non-recursive ordered collection of SQR variables.
If not defined with "declare-variable", any variable beginning with a "$" is a string variable.  Any variable beginning with a "#" is the "default-numeric" type from "declare-variable" (defaults to float).

The "let", "move", "get" and "put" commands will auto-convert between some data types.  They will auto-convert string <-> numeric, and string <-> date.  They will not convert date <-> numeric.

NOTES:
In some cases, the only significant portion of a numeric is its truncated integer value.  An "i" is used to designate these cases, but this does not mean that an integer data type is required.
Similarly, some values are returned as floating point and designated with an f, but they are not restricted to being stored into that data type.
"Round" parameter ranges depend on the data type. Float types rounded can be from 1 to 15, Decimal types can be from 1 to its precision.

Text Mask Characters

 Char   Description 
 X  Use character from string value. 
 B  Insert space character. 
 ~  (tilde) Skip character from string value. 
 R[n]   Reverse sequence of string.
Optional number is length of result string (space padded to right justify or left truncated if shorter than length of string). 
Any other character in a text edit mask is treated as a constant and is included in the edited field.
The characters 8, 9, 0, V, and $ are illegal in a text edit mask because they are used to indicate that the mask is for a numeric edit.

 

Numeric Mask Characters

 Char   Description 
 9  Digit. Space fill to the left (right justified).
 8 +3.0  Digit. Remove leading spaces (left justified).
 0  Digit. Zero fill to the left.
 $  Dollar sign/Digit. Optionally floats to the right.
 B  Treated as a "9". If a value is zero, the result string is space filled.
 .  Decimal point.
 V +3.0   Implied decimal point.
 ,  Comma.
 C +3.0  Mask suffix. Transposes the comma and period characters. 
 (Example: 12345.678 with mask "9,999,999.99c" becomes "   12.345,68").
 E  Mask suffix. Scientific format. 
 Decimal places in the mask determine the number of significant digits displayed. 
 The case of "E" matches the case used in the mask.
 MI  Mask suffix. If the number is negative, the minus sign displays at the right of the number.
 PR  Mask suffix. If the number is negative, angle brackets (< >) display around the number.
 PS  Mask suffix. If the number is negative, parentheses display around the number.
 PF  Mask suffix. If the number is negative, floating parentheses display around the number.
 NA  Mask suffix. If the numeric column variable is null, displays "N/A". 
 The case of N/A matches the case used in the mask.
 NU  Mask suffix. If the numeric column variable is null, displays blanks.
Decimal places in any numeric mask are considered significant digits, and are therefore 0 filled.
Characters other than those listed are illegal for numeric edit masks and cause errors during processing.
