DataWindow Initial Values

Question:
How can I use global variables to set initial values in a DataWindow?

I have tried to use “Rows..Column Specs..” but all it displays is the name of the global variable.

Answer:
You cannot use the column specifications to set the values based on PowerBuilder variables. The initializers you can use are:

  • Today: today’s date
  • Empty: a string of length 0
  • Null: no value
  • Spaces: all blanks

To achieve what you want you will have to use PowerScript and manually set or import the values.
