Function Alias() Foundation
Returns the alias name for a work area.
Alias( [<nWorkArea>] ) --> cAlias
The return value of Alias() is a character string containing the alias name of the work area. If no argument is passed to the function, the function returns the alias name of the current work area. If no file is open in the work area, a null string ("") is returned.
The function Alias() determines the alias name of a work area. The alias name of a work area is defined when the database file is opened by the command USE or the function DbUseArea(). The counterpart of Alias() is the function Select(), which provides the work area number based on the alias name passed. Index files have the analogous function pair OrdName() and OrdNumber().
