To use the <eConnectOut> XML node with the Transaction Requester, you need to use the following elements:

  • You use DOCTYPE to specify the type of Transaction Requester document you are targeting. The DOCTYPE value must match one of the document types in the eConnect_Out_Setup table. Examples include Customer, Employee, and Sales_Transaction.
  • You use FORLOAD when you want your query to produce documents for the Outgoing Service. If you set FORLOAD to one, your query information is placed in the eConnect_Out table. The Outgoing Service uses your query information to create an eConnect XML document and place that document into a queue.
  • You use FORLIST when you want the Transaction Requester to return the query result directly. You typically use this with the GetEntity method of the eConnectMethods class to get an XML string that represents the query result.
  • You use the INDEXFROM and INDEXTO elements to specify the select criteria for your query. The number for each INDEXFROM and INDEXTO correpond to the INDEX columns for the specified document type in the eConnect_Out_Setup table. For example, INDEX1 for the Customer document type in the eConnect_Out_Setup table is CUSTNMBR. To use <eConnectOut> to retrieve cusomer information, you must use customer number values in INDEX1FROM and INDEX1TO.
  • To request a single record, place the same value in the INDEX1FROM and INDEX1TO field. To get several records, place the first value in the INDEXFROM element and the last element in the INDEXTO element. The Transaction Requester retrieves your first and last values and any records with an index value between them.

The following example shows how to use <eConnectOut> to retrieve a list of customers from the TWO database. Notice how INDEX1FROM specifies a customer number and INDEX1TO specifies a second customer number. The Transaction Requester returns XML that includes the two specified customers and any customers with a customer number between the two specified values.

<eConnectOut>
    <DOCTYPE>Customer</DOCTYPE>
    <OUTPUTTYPE>2</OUTPUTTYPE>
    <INDEX1TO>ALTONMAN0001</INDEX1TO>
    <INDEX1FROM>AARONFIT0001</INDEX1FROM>
    <FORLOAD>0</FORLOAD>
    <FORLIST>1</FORLIST>
    <ACTION>0</ACTION>
    <ROWCOUNT>0</ROWCOUNT>
    <REMOVE>0</REMOVE>
</eConnectOut>
