INSERT is the function form of the INS statement, with preference given to the use of INS. It takes the general form: 

INSERT(expression1, expression2{, expression3 {, expression4 }}; expression5)

Where :

  • expression1 evaluates to a dynamic array in which to insert a new element and will normally be a variable.
  • expression2, expression3 and expression4 should evaluate to integer values and specify the attribute, multi-value and sub-value before which the new element will be inserted.
  • expression5 evaluates to the new element to be inserted in expression1.

An example of use is as:

A = INSERT(B, 1, 4; "Field1Value4")

Note that is unchanged and the modified expression1 is assigned to the variable A.
