How can I get the column name of a datawindow column?
I want to get the column name in tablename.columnname format. I have tried
to get it using dbname property. However, I found that it work only if the
tables in the datawindow are inner join. If the tables in the datawindow
are outer join, the dbname only return the columnname and the tablename is

You could add the name to the select clause or to the tag property. Or you
caould check to see if it is a join or not (by seeing if there is a '.' in the
column name) if not then get the sql select statment and parse to find the

I want to get the datawindow (name) from a datawindowchild variable.
But, the dwc has no way to get it.

Q: How does a column get its name?
Datawindow is built using
Tabular - SQL Select - and Converted to Syntax.
On existing datawindow - the column names have been modified to strip off
the table names (so table name "company" was stripped from column name
"company_code" to make it as just "code").
I was changing this existing datawindow - adding one another column.
After adding the column into the SQL-SELECT, the datawindow display warning

Try dot notation. There is a good possibility to show data as well:
MessageBox( "Data", dw_Crosstab.Describe( "DataWindow.Data" ) )

don't forget to set the statis property to TRUE, before trying to access the

Attached is a piece of code that opens a datastore based on a datawindow
which is itself based on a stored procedure that takes two parameters.
There are two records in the dataset. The problem is thus: this code
will be customized in each application but the "linked" list it will be
stored in is part of a PFC service that will not know the number/names
of fields until run time. That code is generic and creates the initial
linked list from records stored in a table that "defines" the
number/names of fields.
Since the code must not make any assumptions about the ...DataWindow This, DataWindow That...

I am having problems with the datawindow.column.count property of a
datawindow. It just started happening with PB 6.501 and still works
fine in PB 5.0. The function that looks at this property is in an
ancestor userobject. The dataobject is assigned at this point but all
other properties of the datawindow are missing. Any suggestions?
Don't recall, but was it still dwDescribe() in version 5.0? If it was that
may be your problem.

Has anybody out there noticed problems with the dynamic creation of

name(e.g. table_name_column_name). This is now broken in PB 6.5.
