  • Extend TABLE-SCAN support to dynamic queries

    TABLE-SCAN is currently only available for static FOR EACH statements, not for dynamic queries. Extending the support for TABLE-SCAN to dynamic queries would be a useful feature. See discussion at https://community.progress.com/community_groups/openedge_development...
  • 10 decimal limit.

    We need more decimals when doing math in Progress 4GL. We get round errors in amounts, and have to make different work-arounds to go around this limit. Is there a plan to solve this in Progress 4GL?

    Progress Error messages are composed from a template string like ** %s record not on file. (138) and substitution values (%s -> Customer) in this case. It would be a very valuable enhancement to add a property (or a set of properties/methods similar...
