dictname dictname hedren (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 30 Nov 04 08:20 Hi, I need to test the dictionary name in ADS. Any idea how I can get this? The variable dbname exist but the dictname I cannot find RE: dictname Bettymae (TechnicalUser) 14 Feb 05 10:40 DBNAME implies DICTNAME. DBNAME is a translation table used by the system for database mapping. Since the dictionary is a database, it is translated through a dbname. To see which dbname to use for the dictionary you want to target, get to the "enter next task" prompt and enter "dcmt d dbname" this will give you a display of the DBNAMEs already set in your system. Note the one that references your dictionary, and use that DBNAME in ADS.
