FIND records
For a Web request, the typical database query returns one record (or one record per table in a join) from the database that provides the values for mapped field objects. Generally, you accomplish this using a single FIND statement. However, you might require other file I/O or calculations to provide the values for local variable or user field objects that are also mapped for the request. You can also retrieve records anywhere that is appropriate for your application, such as in a local override to an event procedure.
