UNIX and VMS--The Employee Query Interactive Forms Application
This EQUEL/FORMS application uses a form in query mode to view a subset of the Employee table in the Personnel database. An Ingres query qualification is built at runtime using values entered in fields of the form "empform."
The objects used in this application are:
Object
Description
personnel
The program's database environment.
employee
A table in the database, with six columns:
name (c20)
age (i1)
idno (i4)
hired (date)
dept (c10)
salary (money)
empform
A VIFRED form with fields corresponding in name and type to the columns in the Employee database table. The Name and Idno fields are used to build the query and are the only updatable fields. "Empform" is a compiled form.
A display statement drives the application. This statement allows the runtime user to enter values in the two fields that build the query. The Build_Query and Exec_Query procedures make up the core of the query that is run as a result. Note the way the values of the query operators determine the logic that builds the where clause in Build_Query. The retrieve statement encloses a submenu block that allows the user to step through the results of the query.
The retrieved values are not updated, but any employee screen can be saved in a log file using the printscreen statement in the save menu item.
UNIX: The following create statement describes the format of the Employee database table:
##    create employee
##        (name     = c20,     /* Employee name */
##         age      = i1,      /* Employee age */
##         idno     = i4,      /* Unique employee id */
##         hired    = date,    /* Date of hire */
##         dept     = c10,     /* Employee department */
##         salary   = money)   /* Annual salary */
