..DescribedDirectory is used to manage the physical directory of HFSQL data files. This property ignores the possible changes of directory performed by HChangeDir or HSubstDir. You can:
  • Find out the physical directory of a data file defined in the data model editor or by programming.
  • Define a physical directory for a data file (when the file is described by 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)
