In french: RépertoireDécrit
HFSQLHFSQL Client/ServerAvailable only with these kinds of connection
The DescribedDirectory property is used to manage the physical directory of HFSQL files. This property ignores the possible changes of directory performed by HChangeDir or HSubstDir. You can:
  • Identify the physical directory of a data file defined in the data model editor or through programming.
  • Define a physical directory for a data file (when the file is described through programming).
Remark: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
Example
// Define the physical directory of the Orders data file
Orders.DescribedDirectory = "C:\MyFiles"
...
// Validate the data file description
HDescribeFile(Orders)
