The list of dependencies for a given file.
Returns the dependent files that have been updated.
Determines if the master file for a list of dependencies is out of date.
When a master file is based on the contents of one or more transaction files, then the master file is out of date when any of the transaction files is updated. The FILE.DEPENDENCIES() method can be used to determine if the master file is out of date.
