Command SET ORDER Foundation
Specifies the controlling index in the current work area or the work area specified.
SET ORDER TO [<nIndex>] | TAG <cTagName> [OF <cIndexfile>] [IN <nWorkArea> | <cAlias> ] [ASCENDING | descending]
SET ORDER determines the controlling index in the current work area. This index specifies the logical order of the records in the work area.
The value for <nIndex> must be between zero and the number of open index files in the work area. When the value is equal to zero, access to the records occurs in their natural order (with no logical sorting). However, the open index files continue to be updated. A value not equal to zero activates an index based on the order that the index files were opened in the work area.
