Parameters

oFSSource (Optional)
Type: Usual
The source file containing the records to be appended.  The source file is opened in shared, read-only mode, and can be open elsewhere in this or some other application.
aFieldList (Optional)
Type: Usual
An array of fields from the source file that are to be included.  The default is all fields.
cbForBlock (Optional)
Type: Usual
The condition evaluated for each record in the scope; if TRUE, the record is included in the processing.  It provides the same functionality as the FOR clause of record processing commands.
cbWhileBlock (Optional)
Type: Usual
The condition evaluated for each record from the first record until the condition returns FALSE.  It provides the same functionality as the WHILE clause of record processing commands.
uScope (Optional)
Type: Usual
The range of records to process, providing the same functionality as the ALL, REST and NEXT clauses of record processing commands. Value Description DBSCOPEALL The scope is all the records in the table.  This is the default, although if a WHILE condition is specified, the scope becomes DBSCOPEREST. DBSCOPEREST The scope is the remaining records in the table from the current position. <nRecords> The scope is the next <nRecords> records.

Return Value

Type: Usual
TRUE if successful; otherwise, FALSE (although this can still have caused records to be appended).
Remarks
Sends a NotifyIntentToMove message before the operation.  Sends a NotifyFileChange message, if any record was appended.
