Dictionary Functions

 

These functions are different than those found in the Standard Functions. These functions are specific to the report you're running in ComQuest. The screen above may be totally blank, with no functions developed at all. Or, it could contain a dozen or more functions that perform a specialized task.

 

The above screen shows four functions available to this sample application. You could select one of these functions for your report from this dictionary location.

 

Some examples of different functions that could create and store data here would be:

 

Convert a text string to a proper case statement

 

Convert the division of two numbers to a percent (multiply by 100)

 

Calculate the elapsed number of days between two dates

 

Convert a standard date (mm/dd/yy) to a Julian formatted date (yyyyddd)
