Reindexing Quick Reference
|Entry Point||Reindexes Entries||Reindexes Xrefs||Executes Logic|
|EN^DIK||1||Some or all for 1 field||KILL then SET|
|EN1^DIK||1||Some or all for 1 field||SET|
|EN2^DIK||1||Some or all for 1 field||KILL|
|ENALL^DIK||All||Some or all for 1 field||SET|
|ENALL2^DIK||All||Some or all for 1 field||KILL|
|IX^DIK||1||All||KILL then SET|
IX^DIK reindexes all cross-references of the file for only one entry in the file. It executes first the KILL logic and then the SET logic. Reindexing occurs at all file levels at or below the one specified in DIK and DA.
Before reindexing, you should be familiar with the effects of all relevant cross-references that could be fired (including bulletins, triggers, and MUMPS-type).
If you are reindexing an entry at the top level of a file, set DIK to the global root of the file.
If you are reindexing only a subentry, set DIK to the full global root leading to the subentry, including all intervening subscripts and the terminating comma, up to - but not including - the IEN of the subfile entry to reindex.
If you are reindexing an entry at the top level of a file, set DA to the internal entry number of the file entry to reindex.
If you are reindexing an entry in a subfile, set up DA as an array, where DA is the entry number in the subfile to reindex, DA(1) is the entry number at the next higher file level,...DA(n) is the entry number at the file's top level.
