Function FieldPut() Foundation
Copies a value into a field of the current record in a work area.
FieldPut( <nFieldPos>, <Expression> ) --> xAssignedValue
FieldPut() returns the value assigned to the field at the position <nFieldPos> in the work area. When <nFieldPos> is not a valid field position in the work area, NIL is returned.
The database function FieldPut() assigns a value to a single field of a record in a work area. If the function is used without the alias operator, the assignment occurs to a field in the current work area. FieldPut() allows write access to records without knowing the data structure or the field name by specifying only the numeric field position. Generic input/output routines can be programmed independent of the data structure using this function.
