Dialogue Manager -read
I need help with a -read from dialogue manager. I want to read in a value from a hold file from a previous request.

Is there any documenation on IBI describing how to set this up? All I find is a paragraph or two stating it can be done, but no firm examples.

Try this

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT CAR
BY COUNTRY
IF RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
ON TABLE SAVE
END

-READ SAVE &CARONHOLD.A16. &COUNTRYCAR.A10. ;
-TYPE &CARONHOLD


where .A16. etc is the length of the fields in car.mas file

You can also say
ON TABLE SAVE AS XYZ

-READ XYZ &CARONHOLD.A16.

Instead of CAR file you can use your hold file for table request.

Thank you - this worked. I previously had
'on table hold as maxppm'. I changed this to
'on table save'.
