In an earlier post, I noted what I thought was an anomoly: DBGetProp(cName,”VIEW”,”Tables”) unexpectedly returned an empty string. I rebuilt the view, and since it seemed to be an isolated issue in a view that had been around for years, I dismissed it as a glitch. Today I’ve discovered it again in a view I’ve been modifying. I don’t know at what point the DBC stopped recognizing all the tables, or even if there is expected, albeit inconvenient, behavior. The documentation sure doesn’t seem to cover it.
Is it an unreliable command? Or am I misusing it? Or just misunderstanding it? For now I’ll have to assume it’s unreliable and hard code the constituent cursors in the interest of moving along.
