Examples

The following example uses the GetSheet method to return the "MySheet" sheet of the design-time or run-time data table and add a parameter to it.

MyParam=DataTable.GetSheet ("MySheet").AddParameter("Time", "8:00")

You can also use this to add a parameter to the "MySheet" local sheet (note that no value is returned).

DataTable.GetSheet ("MySheet").AddParameter "Time", "8:00"

The example below performs the equivalent of renaming a column (parameter) in the DataTable by copying the data from one column to a new column with a new name, and then deleting the old column.

'add a new column
DataTable.GetSheet("Global").AddParameter "NewColumn","RowValueNew"
DataTable.GetSheet("Global").AddParameter "OldColumn","RowValueOld"

'copy the cells from the old column into the new column
cnt=DataTable.GetRowCount
For i=1 to cnt
    DataTable.SetCurrentRow(i)
    OldVal=DataTable.Value("OldColumn","Global")
    DataTable.Value("NewColumn","Global")=OldVal
Next

'delete the old column
DataTable.GetSheet("Global").DeleteParameter("OldColumn")
