How to get vendor multiple name values from dataset.


I want to get vendor multiple values like Name1, Name2 and Name3 from external DB. But I am getting only Name1 value.

 String name1 = dataSetTableRecord.getField("Name");

If I am trying to get like Name2 value like this:-

 String name2 = dataSetTableRecord.getField("Name1");

Then I am getting exception.

Exception message:- The specified field was not found. Check the field name.

    I think you need to add the field to the dataset first.

    Hi Adrian Enders,

    Name1, Name2 and Name3 already there in external DB. How to get external column values.

    That makes sense now. I don't know of a way to get to these. The dataset creates these extra columns as it needs to. I would need someone from ABBYY to explain the details. I have a guess - I think that datasets are actually "SQLite" files. So if you could figure out a way to access the files directly you could get to the columns. That won't be supported by ABBYY. I wouldn't advise it. I think these extra columns the dataset creates are to support the ability to modify the Vendor data without modifying the data source. 

    I assume you are trying to access these in a Rule script (or similar). You can only access the "Data set column" from scripts, not these "external database column" fields; as far as I know. That's why you get field not found errors.

    Hope this helps.
