HPrepareQuery (Function)
In french: HPrépareRequête
HFSQL ClassicHFSQL Client/ServerNot available with these kinds of connection
Initializes a query and declares this query to the database server in order to optimize the next executions of this query. This query is not run. Then, the query can be run by HExecuteQuery. This function is available for queries with or without bind.
To free the resources of this query, use HCancelDeclaration.
We recommend that you use this function when the same query is run successively and when only some of the query parameters are modified at each execution.
This function is optional and it can only be used on the Client/Server databases (currently available for AS/400).
For the other databases accessed by a Native Connector, OLE DB or ODBC, HPrepareSQLQuery runs the query.
This function cannot be used on the HFSQL databases (HFSQL Classic or Client/Server) and on the xBase databases.
hPrepareQuery(QRY_MyQry, MyConnection, hQueryWithoutCorrection)

FOR I = 1 TO 10
QRY_MyQry.lastname = "LastName" + I
QRY_MyQry.firstname = "FirstName" + I
QRY_MyQry.age_ = I
<Result> = HPrepareQuery(<Query> , <Connection> [, <Mode>])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the query was initialized,
  • False otherwise. HErrorInfo returns more details about the problem.
<Query>: Character string
  • Name and full path of query (".WDR" file) to initialize.
  • Logical name of the query to be initialized.
If a query with the same name is already declared, it is replaced by the new query.
<Connection>: Character string or Connection variable
Connection through which the query will be run. This connection corresponds to:
<Mode>: Optional Integer constant
Option for initializing the query:
Native Connectors (Native Accesses) No check is performed by the HFSQL engine. This option must be used if the query contains commands specific to a connection type (Oracle, SQL Server, etc.).
