HMigrateLinkedCompositeKey (Function)
In french: HMigreCléComposéeReliée
AjaxNot available
HFSQLAvailable only with this kind of connection
Migrates the values of the linked composite keys coming from a file in Hyper File 5.5 format to the HFSQL Classic format.
When should I use this function?
The format of composite keys changed between Hyper File 5.5 and HFSQL Classic (single-user or multi-user).
Consequence: the value of the linked keys corresponding to a composite key is incorrect once the files have been migrated from Hyper File 5.5 to HFSQL Classic. HMigrateLinkedCompositeKey changes the value of the linked keys and retrieves the value of the composite key in the linked key.
Use conditions:
This function must be used:
  • with files in HFSQL Classic format (files in 5.5 format migrated to the Classic format),
  • once for each key to migrate
  • just after the migration from Hyper File 5.5 to HFSQL Classic. If records are added between the migration and the call to HMigrateLinkedCompositeKey, the values of the new records may be corrupted.
Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
