Example

The following example opens the Item table as a RecordRef variable that is named ItemRecref, creates a reference to field 1 (No.), and stores the value in the variable named MyFieldRef. The RECORD function uses the MyFieldRef variable to return the RecordRef of field 1 and stores the reference in a variable named MyRecRef. MyRecRef.NUMBER returns the table that the selected field belongs to. This example requires that you create the following variables and text constant in the C/AL Globals windows.

Variable name DataType

Text constant ENU value

Copy Code
ItemRecref.OPEN(DATABASE::Item);
MyFieldRef := ItemRecref.FIELD(1);
MyRecRef := MyFieldRef.RECORD;
MESSAGE(Text000, MyRecRef.NUMBER);
