Codeunit.RUN Function (Codeunit)

Loads and executes the unit of C/AL code that you specify. See also RUN Function (Codeunit).

Syntax


[Ok :=] Codeunit.RUN(Number[, Record])  

Parameters

Number
Type: Integer

The ID of the codeunit to run. You can use the Symbols option on the View menu to select from a list.

You can specify the codeunit by name instead of by ID by using the following syntax:

Codeunit.RUN(CODEUNIT::"<codeunit name>", RecVariable)

If the codeunit that you specify does not exist, then a run-time error occurs.

If you run the codeunit with a record from a table other than the one it is associated with in the TableNo Property of the codeunit, then a run-time error occurs.

Record
Type: Record

Specifies a record from the table that is associated with the codeunit in the TableNo property.

Property Value/Return Value

Type: Boolean

If you do not include the optional return value and an error occurs when the codeunit is running, then the C/AL code that called this codeunit will end.

If you include the return value and an error occurs, then the calling C/AL code continues to run. This means that you must handle any errors.

true if no errors occurred; otherwise, false.

Example

The following example runs codeunit 15, Gen. Jnl.-Show Card by specifying the ID. This codeunit is associated with the Gen. Journal Line table. This example requires that you create the following variable in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType Subtype
GenJournalLine Record Gen. Journal Line
CODEUNIT.RUN(15,GenJournalLine);
