STORE Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Stores data to a \variable, to an array, or to an array element.

STORE eExpression TO VarNameList | ArrayNameList-or-
VarName | ArrayName = eExpression

Parameters

eExpression
Specifies an expression whose value is stored to the variable, array, or array element. If the variable doesn't exist, it is created and initialized to eExpression. An array must be previously defined with DIMENSION. STORE replaces the value in an existing variable, array, or array element with the new value.
VarNameList
Specifies a list of variables or array elements to which eExpression is stored. Separate the names or array elements with commas.
ArrayNameList
Specifies a list of names of existing arrays to which eExpression is stored. Separate array names with commas.

STORE initializes every element in the arrays to the specified value if SET COMPATIBLE is OFF. STORE stores the specified value to memory variables of the specified names if SET COMPATIBLE is ON, overwriting any existing arrays that have those names.

Remarks

An alternative to STORE is the equal sign (=) assignment operator. The variable, array, or array element must be on the left side of the equal sign and its value on the right side.

Dates can be stored directly to variables, arrays, or array elements by using braces:

STORE {^1998-12-25} TO gdXMas

The maximum number of variables or arrays you can create is listed in the System Capacities topic. The limit can be increased or decreased in your Visual FoxPro configuration file. For more information on configuring Visual FoxPro, refer to Configuring Visual FoxPro.

Example

STORE DATE( ) TO gdDate
STORE 50 TO gnNumeric
STORE 'Hello' TO gcCharacter
STORE .T. TO glLogical
STORE $19.99 TO gyCurrency

DIMENSION gaMyArray(2,2)
SET COMPATIBLE OFF
STORE 2 TO gaMyArray

CLEAR
DISPLAY MEMORY LIKE g*
