Field List Disable (-fldisable)

Use Field List Disable (-fldisable), which is a run-time parameter, to cause the AVM to ignore field lists in the r-code and fetch complete records.

Also, note the difference between -fldisable and -rereadfields. The Field List Disable (-fldisable) option causes the AVM to ignore all field lists and to fetch the entire record for every query. The Reread Field List (-rereadfields) option causes the AVM to ignore a field list and fetch the entire record only when an error occurs due to a missing field. Therefore, using -rereadfields is likely to have less of a negative impact on performance.
See Reread Fields (-rereadfields) for more information. For more information about using field lists, see OpenEdge Getting Started: ABL Essentials.
