DataWindow Initial Values

DataWindow Initial Values

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.

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.
