Stored procedures
Performs various statistical calculations on the file keys.
Versions 16 and later
This function is equivalent to the HAccelerateSpeed function.
New in version 16
This function is equivalent to the HAccelerateSpeed function.
This function is equivalent to the HAccelerateSpeed function. C These statistics are used when installing a filter, creating a query or creating a view on the data file. The HFSQL engine analyzes the selection condition then it is using these statistics to define the most discriminating items that will be used to optimize the browse operations performed on the data files.
The statistics are used to get information about the content of the data file when they are calculated. Therefore, the more modifications are performed in the file after this calculation, the less these statistics represent the true content of the data file. The more records the data file contains, the less the modification of a single record impacts the overall statistics.
Caution: HStatCalculate locks the data file in write mode while the statistics are calculated (a file browse is performed for each file key).
HFSQL Client/Server The statistics can be calculated in background task without locking the data file in write mode.
Remark: In order for the statistical calculation to be efficient, this calculation must be performed on all data files (for a multi-file query for example).
Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
Versions 21 and later
WEBDEV - Server code This function is now available to perform statistical calculations on the data files of a HFSQL cluster.
New in version 21
WEBDEV - Server code This function is now available to perform statistical calculations on the data files of a HFSQL cluster.
WEBDEV - Server code This function is now available to perform statistical calculations on the data files of a HFSQL cluster.
Example
// Statistics on CUSTNAME key of CUSTOMER file
HStatCalculate(CUSTOMER, CUSTNAME)
Syntax
<Result> = HStatCalculate([<Data file> [, <Key item> [, <Option>]]])
<Result>: Boolean
  • True if the calculation was performed,
  • False if a problem occurred (data file locked by an application for example). HError is used to identify the error.
<Data file>: Optional character string (with or without quotes)
Name of data file used. If this name is not specified, HStatCalculate handles the last data file used by the last function for HFSQL management (starting with the letter H).
If this parameter is equal to "*" (without specifying a field), the calculation will be performed on all data files described in the current analysis (including data files described with the functions HDeclare, HDeclareExternal, HDescribeFile).
Caution: This data file must not be locked by an application.
<Key item>: Optional character string (with or without quotes)
Name of key item used to perform the statistical calculation. If this name is not specified or if it is equal to "*", the statistics will be calculated for all key items found in the data file.
<Option>: Integer constant
Versions 15 and later
Option for calculating the statistics.
  • If this parameter is not specified, the calculation of statistics locks the data file in write mode.
  • If this parameter corresponds to the hBackgroundTask constant, the statistics are calculated in background task, without locking the data file.
Important: This parameter is taken into account for the HFSQL Client/Server files. In the other cases, the data file is automatically locked while the statistics are calculated.
New in version 15

  • If this parameter is not specified, the calculation of statistics locks the data file in write mode.
  • If this parameter corresponds to the hBackgroundTask constant, the statistics are calculated in background task, without locking the data file.

Remarks
  • HStatCalculate does not close the data file.
  • The statistics can also be updated by HIndex. HIndex and HStatCalculate can both be used to update the file statistics.
  • In the HFSQL Classic or Client/Server data files, the statistical calculation can only be performed on the key items.
  • The syntax HStatCalculate(<Data file>) is equivalent to HStatCalculate(<Data file>, "*")
  • Versions 21 and later
    To use HStatCalculate with the data files of a HFSQL cluster, the <Option> parameter must correspond to the hBackgroundTask constant to avoid locking the cluster.
    New in version 21
    To use HStatCalculate with the data files of a HFSQL cluster, the <Option> parameter must correspond to the hBackgroundTask constant to avoid locking the cluster.
