output-macro

Command output-macro Attribute Defining Item/BASIC: Syntax
Applicable release versions: AP
Category BASIC: Syntax (110)
Description references attribute 16 of file-defining items. For file-defining items, the text in "output-macro" describes the default attribute list to be used in an Access report.

For a "file-defining item", the text in this field is substituted into any TCL statement which outputs this file. For an attribute-defining item, this attribute has no relevance.

If the output-macro attribute is null on a file-defining item, the text from the "macro" attribute will be used for output as well as input.

If the attributes to be displayed are explicitly defined in the TCL statement, the default output-macro (or macro) attributes are ignored.

The TCL command "list filename" displays the file using the attributes defined in the output-macro attribute of the file-defining item.

However, the TCL command "list filename name address zip" displays the file showing the 'name' 'address' and 'zip' attributes.
