ProDataSet object handle

A handle to a ProDataSet object. A ProDataSet object is a collection of one or more related temp-tables. Each temp-table in a ProDataSet object can attach to a data-source object that allows filling of the temp-table from the data source, or updating the data source from the temp-table. A ProDataSet object can optionally contain a set of data relations between the temp-tables.
A ProDataSet object can be static or dynamic. A static ProDataSet object is one you define at compile time with the DEFINE DATASET statement. A dynamic ProDataSet object is one you create at run time with the CREATE DATASET statement. Use this handle to access the ProDataSet object's attributes and methods, and its sub-elements (its temp-table buffers, data relations, data sources, and so on) and their attributes and methods.
