AFile.Name = "CUSTOMER"
AFile.Type = hFileNormal
AFile.FicCryptMethod = hCryptStandard
 
// Describe the "DogStatus" item
AnItem.Name = "Item_DogStatus"
AnItem.Type = hItemEnumeration
AnItem.TypeDescription = DogStatus
HDescribeItem(AFile, AnItem)
 
// Describe the "VacationStatus" item
AnItem.Name = "Item_VacationStatus"
AnItem.Type = hItemEnumeration
AnItem.TypeDescription = VacationStatus
HDescribeItem(AFile, AnItem)
