  • 1.  Raise / Lower function

    Posted 14 days ago
    Hi Guys,

    Maybe I'm missing something but does D3 (10.3) not have the raise (lower) function to alter @Vm to @Am (or vice versa) ?

    I guess one could use the swap function but I've been working with Open Insight and ​"miss" this :)

    Never heard of that one. Probably doesn't exist in D3. And you're correct about SWAP, but I prefer CONVERT.

    Hi - it's a compatibility thing. I can only find this with Google:
    effectively raises (or lowers) any of these values:

    Depending on use. Cool if you work with dynamic arrays and quickly wish to invert lists. I rarely used it. Perhaps chat with some of the UniVerse guys(?)

    No good reason. Learned CONVERT way back on ADDS Mentor Pick in about 1987. No manual. Saw it in code. Never saw SWAP. Now it's CONVERT by reflex.

    It would however be pretty straight-forward to write your own subroutine to do this

    Yep Will, agreed and have written function to do this.

    I used in Open Insight with memory tables.
