Command access.itemlist Definition/Access: Verbs
Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category Access: Verbs (152)
Description indicates a specific list of item-ids to process.

Each item-id in the list may optionally be enclosed within single quotes. When an Access sentence contains no specific list of item-id's then, subject to restrictions specified in the optional selection clause, all items in the file are eligible for processing. (See "selection criteria").

In AP, the single quotes around item-ids in an Access sentence are optional, unless the resulting command is ambiguous.
Syntax 'item-id' 'item-id'
item-id item-id
Options
Example
list md '*a0'

This lists the specific item '*a0', from the md of the current 
account.

list md *a0

Since "*a0" is a valid attribute-defining item (ADI), this sentence 
produces output showing attribute 0 (zero) of every item in the current md.

list invoices 's1000' 's1010' 's1001'

This sentence requests a specific set of item-ids from the "invoices" 
file, and in AP, would also be valid as:

list invoices s1000 s1010 s1001
