The GetDataset Function


The GetDataset Function

This function was introduced to enable the entire dataset to be saved as a BLOB in a data base.

Typically, this function will be used in the context of a SetDataSourceData function, something like this:

«SetDataSourceData(‘StagingDataSource’,Guid(), 'XMLBlob',GetDataset(), 'Description',Name)»

In the above, the value of the Guid() function would be used as an arbitrary, unique, ID of a staging table, XMLBlob is the name of the BLOB column into which the data set (from GetDataset()) is written, and the Description and Name are the name and value (respectively) to be written into another column in that row in the table.
