Setting the Script Recording Level
You can determine whether the Script Recorder records operations (such as Append, Copy, Export etc.) as Low level, or high level Xbasic commands. For example:
:A5.EXPORT("invoice numbers to excel")
is a high level command, whereas the following sequence shows low level commands:
export.file = filename export.type = 1 export.names = export_names export.options = "Q" export.field_sep = "," export.rec_sep = "" export.fields = 5 export.field1 = "cust_id" export.field2 = "salutation" export.field3 = "first_name" export.field4 = "last_name" export.field5 = "home_phone" tbl.export()
In some circumstances it might be preferable to record low level Xbasic command because you might want to "hard code" a sequence. To set the level at which the Xbasic Script Recorder operates, click the appropriate button in the Script Recorder window.
