Example
ResModif is boolean
ResModif = HModifyDatabaseProperty("MyConnection", hOwner, "Flora", "MyDatabase")
IF ResModif = True THEN
        Info("Modification performed")
END
Syntax
<Result> = HModifyDatabaseProperty(<Connection Name> , <Property to Modify> , <New Value> , <Database Name>)
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the properties have been modified,
  • False otherwise. HErrorInfo is used to identify the error.
<Connection Name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of the connection for which the value of a property must be modified. This connection was defined in the data model editor, or by HDescribeConnection or HOpenConnection.
<Property to Modify>: Integer constant
Database property to modify:
hNotesDescription of the database or any other information associated with the database.
If this constant is used, <New Value> is a character string containing the text of the note.
hOwnerOwner of the database. The owner is the one who owns the database. The owner of a database can change. The notion of owner impacts the management of rights.
If this constant is used, <New Value> is a character string containing the new name of the owner.
<New Value>: Character string (with quotes)
New value for the property.
<Database Name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of the database whose properties must be modified.
If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the database defined in the connection will be used.
A WLanguage error occurs if no database is defined in the connection.
Remarks

Changing the owner of a database

  • The user specified as new owner must be a user found on the server. A WLanguage error occurs if the user does not exist.
  • To modify the owner, the user who performs the modification must:
    • be a "Super user".
    • have the rights to change the owner of the database (rights corresponding to the hRightsChangeOwner constant).
To find out whether the proper rights are granted to the user, use HInfoDatabaseProperty.
