Description

The APPEND BLANK command adds a blank record to the end of the active table. Default information can automatically be inserted into the record via the Applications Data Dictionary (ADD). Using this method can greatly increase performance of batch processes which use the APPEND BLANK command followed by the REPLACE command. If the numeric expression <expN> is specified, then <expN> blank records will be added.

Example

use patrons index names
append blank 10
