Visual PRO/5* provides commands and functions to simplify access to databases external to Visual PRO/5, and to allow SQL access to Visual PRO/5 data files. The commands are designed to provide maximum access to the SQL capabilities available in the BASIS SQL Engine and in other SQL products with which Visual PRO/5 is designed to communicate.

*PRO/5 on UNIX platforms no longer supports third party database access due the unavailability of ODBC libraries.

BBJ_REVISION() Returns the revision information for BBjServices
BBJ_BUILD_ID() Returns the build ID for BBjServices
