    IF NOT < Fieldname> IS INITIAL

    this statement will check if the field is having any value or not.

    this condition will check that the field is not empty.

    Rewards if useful.

    Hi,

    This means if not the value of the field is ' ' (in case of char) or 0 in case of int.

    say var = 'xxx'

    now if not var is initial .

    endif.

    it will check for the value of var it is not ' '.so it will get inside and do the processing

    award if helpful

    Hi,

    The statements works as follows.

    IF NOT ( <Fieldname> IS INITIAL).

    - Initially it checks whether fieldname is initial or not. (value exists or not).

    - NOT is applied for the result of the first line.

    ex: if field is initial, it returns True.

    IF NOT (TRUE).

    Result : False. i.e., If FALSE.

    Hi Mona,

    Lets say

    if not field is initial.

    write : 'Field is having a value'.

    else.

    write : 'Field is empty'.

    endif.

    Suppose field is having a value then 'Field is having a value' will be printed, if not then 'Field is empty' will be printed.

    Reward points if found useful.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Satyesh T

    Hi,

    <b>If not........is initial</b> means that <b>if</b> the field or the table have any value..

    that is it has some value.

    Hi MONA

    the above answer is correct there is no meaning for this further

    it is checking weather that filedname had values then go in that condition other wise don't go into that
