Command SELECT Foundation
Selects and activates a work area.
SELECT <nWorkArea> | <cAlias>
The file command SELECT selects a work area and sets it as the active work area. All functions called without the alias operator execute their operations in the active work area. Either the numeric value (ordinal number) of a work area or its alias name is specified in the command. When the value 0 is specified, the command selects the work area with the lowest ordinal number where no files are opened (the next free work area).
The functional equivalent of the command SELECT is the function DbSelectArea().
