Name Type Data Type Description
Result *Result (Optional) String Resulting value
Default *Input (Optional) String Value to use when the variable is SQLNull


AsValue allows you to better handle *SQLNull. Rather than having to test for a potential SQLnull, AsValue allows a variable to return a specified value.


Rather than having to test as below
If ((#Variable = Xxxx) *or (#Variable.IsSqlNull)
AsValue allows the following
If (#Variable.AsValue(Xxxx))
