Modifies a field in all records within a range that you specify.

Record.MODIFYALL(Field, NewValue [, RunTrigger])

Parameters

Record

Type: Record

The record that contains the field that you want to modify.

Field

Type: Field

The field that you want to modify.

NewValue

Type: Any

The value that you want to assign to Field in all records. The data type of NewValue must match the data type of Field.

RunTrigger

Type: Boolean

If this parameter is true, the code in the OnModify Trigger is executed. If this parameter is false (default), the code in the OnModify trigger is not executed.

Remarks

If no filter is set, the field is modified in all records in the table. If a filter is set, the fields are modified only in the records which fall within the range specified by the filter.

The OnValidate (Fields) Trigger is never executed when MODIFYALL is used.

Example

This example requires that you create the following variable in the C/AL Globals window.

Variable name DataType Subtype

CustomerRec

Record

Customer

Copy Code
// The result of this statement:
CustomerRec.MODIFYALL("Statistics Group", 2);
// is equivalent to:
IF CustomerRec.FIND('-') THEN 
  REPEAT
    CustomerRec."Statistics Group" := 2;
    CustomerRec.MODIFY;
  UNTIL CustomerRec.NEXT = 0;
