Function OrdName() Foundation
Returns the index name from the list of open indexes.
OrdName( [<nIndex>] ) --> cTagName
The return value of OrdName() is a character string containing the name of an index from the list of open indexes. The index name is comparable to the alias name of a work area. When no argument is passed to the function, it returns the index name of the controlling index. If no index file is open, a null string ("") is returned.
The file function OrdName() returns the name of an index in a work area. When the function is used without the alias operator, it returns an index name from the current work area. The index name is specified in the command INDEX using the option TAG. It is comparable to the alias name of a work area and makes the selection of an index by a user defined name possible. An index can then be selected within a program without its position in the list of open indexes being known.
