The unpermanent statement converts one or more permanent variables into regular fileglobal variables. The variables will no longer be saved as part of the database.


This statement has one parameter:

variables – is a list of variables to be converted. Each variable should be separated from the next by a comma. If a variable name contains spaces or punctuation, or begins with any character except a letter or underscore, it should be surrounded by chevron (« ») characters.


This statement “destroys” one or more permanent variables. Actually, the variables still exist, but they are no longer linked to a database, and thus no longer saved with the database. To use this statement, the database that contains the permanent variables must be the current database. Note: If you want to completely destroy the variable use the undefine statement.

The example converts the permanent variable EarlyDiscount into a fileglobal variable.
