Connecting databases to the project
Most ABL applications work in conjunction with one or more databases, and it is important to define connections between each of your projects and the databases that it will work with. By doing so, you enable the ABL Editor to provide complete syntax checking, code assistance with schema references, and drag-and-drop entry of schema references from the DB Structure view.
To connect a project to a database, follow the procedures detailed in the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge's help.
