DML function syntax

The notation used in this documentation is as follows:

$FUNCTION_NAME(parameter_1;parameter_2;parameter_N)

Where

  • Static elements are in bold
  • Variable elements are in italics
  • Semi-colons (;) separate the different parameters

All parentheses, double quotes and semi-colons shown in the syntax are mandatory.

Example

Using a table function as an example:

$EXTTAB(table_name;"ppplllt";operand)

This Table function returns a portion of the contents of the Value column in the Table identified by the table_name parameter.

Target field

If you use a function in a mapping expression, the result is written to a target field
