The left statement makes the previous field active in the active window.


Parameters

No parameters.


Description

This statement makes the previous field active in the active window. If the current window is the data sheet the field before the currently active field will become the active field. If the first visible field is already active this statement will do nothing. You can use this statement in conjunction with the info(“fieldname”) or info(“stopped”) functions to test to see if you are on the first visible record in the window.

This example copies the data from the previous cell into the current cell.
