Understanding Character Processing Tables : Word-break tables

Word-break tables

OpenEdge uses word-break tables to process ABL queries that use the CONTAINS operator of the WHERE option of the record phrase.
The following example shows a ABL query that uses CONTAINS:
FOR EACH customer NO-LOCK WHERE customer.comments CONTAINS "credit hold":
DISPLAY customer.custnum customer.comments.
