Command up.cr Command/Update Processor
Applicable release versions: AP
Category Update Processor (113)
Description reads from an item and pastes the contents at the current cursor location.

See the (UP) "c" command for a more complete description.

When using UP as a text editor, a range of attribute numbers (separated by a period ".") may be specified after the item-id. If the beginning and ending attribute numbers are omitted, the entire item is copied into the item being updated at the current cursor location.

When in data entry mode, with dictionaries defining the attributes, "<ctrl>+cr" has two actions, depending on the status of the item being updated. In both cases, the range is omitted.

1) If the item being updated is new and if the cursor is on the first attribute in the item, "<ctrl>+cr" merges the entire item from the source item specified.

2) In all other cases, when "<ctrl>+cr" is entered, the corresponding (same attribute position) attribute is merged into the current item from the source item specified.
Syntax <ctrl>+cr{(file.reference} item-id {start.attribute}{.end.attribute}<return>
