How to retrieve an occurrence number with ILF!
Retrieve and occurrence example: TRN WORK DATE occurs 66 times (DD) . . . SET --- TEMP 30 = WORK DATE (note this is a literal) SET 0AD ELEMENT NAM = --- TEMP 30 READ 0AD ELEMENT HOLD 0 FT 0 BY ELEMENT NAM SET --- AI = 0AD ELEMENT OCC AI will contain 66 in this example.
Now in 4.2 you can use the two new PDFs --- CURSOR AT APPLICATION and --- CURSOR AT FIELD just in case the user happened to be sitting on the field of interest. ... SET --- NEXT APPLICATION = --- CURSOR AT APPLICATION OPEN 0AD ELEMENT T SET --- TEMP 30 = --- CURSOR AT FIELD T SET 0AD ELEMENT NAM = --- TEMP 30 TT READ 0AD ELEMENT HOLD 0 FT 0 BY ELEMENT NAM ... I haven't tested this to see if it really works and I'm not sure if the T SET --- TEMP 30 = --- CURSOR AT FIELD would really be required.
