The starting table number in the range of tables for which you want to track access statistics.
Access to the statistics is handled through the Virtual System Tables (VSTs). Table statistics are stored in the _TableStat VST. To obtain table numbers, use the following ABL code:
FOR EACH _file:
  DISPLAY _file._file-num _file._file-name.
Running the preceding code results in the following output:
_File-Number File-Name
n1 table name1
