dict_table(upd4)export - Export Table to PHP

(there is no screen)

The purpose of this function is to allow the user to export details for selected tables from the data dictionary into disk files so that they can be accessed in PHP scripts by means of the include() function.

This form is accessed by an option on the navigation bar in the List Tables screen.

For a complete description of how this type of form works please see Transaction Pattern UPDATE 4.

The files will be written into the 'classes' subdirectory of the directory specified on the SUBSYSTEM entry. It is therefore essential that you have write access to this directory. The following files may be created for each table selected:

As each file is written the message "Exported to <filename>" will be constructed, and displayed in the message area of the calling screen when control is returned to that screen.
