Session Description

Using a combination of design functions, script steps, ExecuteSQL, and developer conventions, learn how to divorce your solutions from being so closely tied to the solution in which they were designed.


In this session, you'll create scripts that can be used in multiple tables, layouts, or solutions. Write calculations that can be context-independent and context-sensitive. Author generic scripts that can be used to perform a given function anywhere at any time.

What you should know

Basics of scripting and the calculation engine.
