Example
// Declare the filter: selecting the customers
// who are between 20 and 60 years old
HFilter(CUSTOMER, AGE_Customer, 20, 60)
...
HDeactivateFilter(CUSTOMER) // Disabled filter
...
// Browse the data file with a filter on age
// Process the customers who are between 20 and 60 years old
// (ProcessCustomer2060 procedure)
HActivateFilter(CUSTOMER)
HReadFirst(CUSTOMER, AGE_Customer)
WHILE HFound(CUSTOMER) = True
ProcessCustomer2060()
HReadNext(CUSTOMER, AGE_Customer)
END

Operating mode in OLE DB

If HActivateFilter is used when browsing a data file, the browse is stopped. To take the filter into account, the browse must be reinitialized with HReadFirst/HFirst or HReadLast/HLast.
The current position and all the stored positions are lost. The position will be restored according to the value of best item.
