REMOTE attribute
The THIS-PROCEDURE system handle returns the current procedure handle value from within any executing block of an external procedure. A current procedure handle created within a server session for a remote procedure request is a remote procedure handle. Its REMOTE attribute is, therefore, set to TRUE. If the REMOTE attribute is FALSE, then the current procedure was created as the result of a local procedure call (that is, a procedure call initiated and executed within the current ABL session context).
