Tips and Techniques: Simultaneous Usage and MODIFY Basics

FOCUS Friday

If you missed this KnowledgeShare webinar, that’s OK – you can still access the recording, whenever you have time.


Join us as our dynamic product gurus discuss tips, tricks, and techniques in FOCUS.


Walter Blood, Walter Brengel, and Mark Derwin will impart best practices to attendees about the following topics:


  • Simultaneous Usage – FOCUS Database Server
  • MODIFY – How to Use it Non-Interactively
  • More Maintain


Session descriptions and speakers are provided below.



Simultaneous Usage – Focus Database Server


If you have an application where multiple people could be updating a FOCUS/XFOCUS database at the same time then this session is for you. We will review how to configure the SU to allow multiple updates to the same file from different people/sessions..


MODIFY – How to Use it Non-Interactively


MODIFY is the language that we can use to handle transactional processing – in both reporting and data input. Join us as we cover the basic MODIFY syntax and explore how what you can do with MODIFY when you don’t have direct user contact. This will be the first of several MODIFY sessions this year.


More Maintain


After a quick run through of last month’s application, we will continue to enhance it with drop down lists, input validation and JavaScript confirmation.
