GETTABLE Function (RecordRef)
Gets the table of a Record variable and causes the RecordRef to refer to the same table.
The RecordRef for which you want to specify a table.
Use this record variable to specify the table to which the RecordRefVar refers.
Any filters that are applied to the RecordVar are also applied to the RecordRefVar.
Another way to select the table to which a RecordRef refers is to use the OPEN Function (RecordRef) and specify a table number in the parameters.
The following example is an excerpt from codeunit 8, AccSchedManagement. It iterates through records in the G/L Account table. It sets some values on the fields of a new record in the Acc. Schedule Line table based on the current G/L Account record and inserts the new record into the Acc. Schedule Line table. It calls GETTABLE to cause a RecordRef variable to refer to the same table as the new Acc. Schedule Line record, and then calls the LogInsertion function from codeunit 423, Change Log Management to log the change. The LogInsertion function requires a RecordRef as a parameter.
This example requires that you create the following variables.
|AccSchedLine||Record||Acc. Schedule Line|
|ChangeLogMgt||Codeunit||Change Log Management|
This example assumes that the AccSchedLineNo variable has been assigned a value previously in the code.
IF GLAcc.FIND('-') THEN REPEAT AccSchedLine.INIT; AccSchedLine."Line No." := AccSchedLineNo; AccSchedLineNo := AccSchedLineNo + 10000; AccSchedLine.Description := GLAcc.Name; IF GLAcc."Account Type" IN [GLAcc."Account Type"::Posting,GLAcc."Account Type"::Total,GLAcc."Account Type"::"End-Total"] THEN BEGIN AccSchedLine.Totaling := GLAcc."No."; AccSchedLine."Row No." := COPYSTR(GLAcc."No.",1,MAXSTRLEN(AccSchedLine."Row No.")); END; IF GLAcc."Account Type" IN [GLAcc."Account Type"::Total,GLAcc."Account Type"::"End-Total"] THEN AccSchedLine."Totaling Type" := AccSchedLine."Totaling Type"::"Total Accounts" ELSE AccSchedLine."Totaling Type" := AccSchedLine."Totaling Type"::"Posting Accounts"; AccSchedLine.INSERT; RecRef.GETTABLE(AccSchedLine); ChangeLogMgt.LogInsertion(RecRef); UNTIL GLAcc.NEXT = 0;
