Add Multilingual Variables to the List

When the option to 'Add multilingual variables to list' is chosen from the Work with Export List Menu a screen similar to the following example is used to manipulate the export list:

 

 DC@P620013       Add *MTXT Variable(s) to List

This facility allows you to build temporary lists of LANSA multilingual variables and display them on the screen. From these displayed lists, multilingual variables can be chosen for inclusion in your export list.

Multilingual variables will only be available for selection if the current partition is a multilingual partition.

Lists can be built either from all multilingual variables, or only from multilingual variables with a specified generic name.

A displayed list may not fit on one screen. This is indicated by a '+' sign in the lower right of the screen. In such cases use the roll up and roll down keys to scroll backwards and forwards through the displayed list.

The Sel column

Multilingual variables shown in the displayed list, and which are already included in the export list are shown with an 'X' or 'G' beside them. The 'X' or 'G' cannot be removed. Thus a multilingual variable cannot be removed from the export list by using this facility. Use the option 'Review/Delete Objects Already in the List' to do this.

Enter 'Y' beside a multilingual variable in the list if you want to include it in the export list.

Alternatively you may use the Generic function key to add the generic name into the export list. Generic names are described in detail in Generic Object Names.

When you have finished using this facility, use the Cancel function key to return to the Work with Export List Menu.
