Command attribute-type Attribute Defining Item/BASIC: Syntax
Applicable release versions: AP
Category BASIC: Syntax (110)
Description displays the justification specification of the dictionary item being processed by Access:

l{x} Left justification. Text breaks at width of column.

r{x} Right justification. This will overlay the column(s) to the left if the data is longer than the column width.

t{x} Text justification. This behaves like left justification, but will break on a space if the data is longer than the column width.

u "Unconditional" Left justification. This will overlay the column(s) to the right if the data is longer than the column width.

w Processes through OP before listing. Any valid OP command may follow this code or be used in the attribute. This only works in non-columnar formats. The "w" type can also be used by the Update processor. See the "access" function number 22.

ww When used from an Access report, this attribute-type processes all attributes from this attribute through the end of the item through OP before listing. This only works in non-columnar format. This also forces a form-feed after processing the last attribute of the item. When used from the Update processor, this attribute-type indicates that any attributes to follow will appear in free-text mode.

x Used with l, r, or t to expand the display field to fill the report display.
