Re: Script function

HI

The Trace function log your comments to Log file. Just providing the comments in the Log file as well.

In ur example:

TRACE Loading the FARS mapping tables;


"Loading the FARS mapping tables " is logged in ur log file.


Please refer the help file

The trace statement writes a string to the Script Execution Progress window and to the script log file, when used.

It is very useful for debugging purposes. Using $-expansions of variables that are calculated prior to the Trace statement, you can customize the message.

The syntax is:

trace string

Examples:

trace Main table loaded;

Let MyMessage = NoOfRows('MainTable') & ' rows in Main Table';

trace $(MyMessage)
