Change or deactivate the active dictionary
SET DICTIONARY ON | OFF | (<expL>)
SET DICTIONARY TO [<.dbd filename> | (<expC>) ]
The SET DICTIONARY ON | OFF command enables or disables the use of Lianja’s Data Dictionary (.dbd) files. By default SET DICTIONARY is ON. When SET DICTIONARY is OFF, and a table is opened that has an associated data dictionary, the data dictionary is ignored. To disable a dictionary file after the table has opened, use the SET DICTIONARY TO command.
The SET DICTIONARY TO <.dbd filename> command can be used to change the current dictionary. The filename can be substituted with an <expC>, enclosed in round brackets, which returns a valid filename. If no file extension is specified, ’.dbd’ is used. This command will change the active dictionary to the specified <.dbd filename>. The dictionary must have been created from the current table.
The SET DICTIONARY TO command will deactivate the current dictionary.
NOTE: SET DICTIONARY TO will not deactivate triggers or field and table protection.
