Thanks John

I'm afraid that's not entirely correct.

%GSET existed until Cache 5. Then it was changed to %SYS.GSET.

I do see %GSET in our new 2016 installations, but it does Not function same as SYS.GSET.

For example - one could Do ^%GSET and Do ^%SYS.GSET, in the 2016 %GSET you can't do it, you must supply some parameters.

OK Intersystems confirms that as from 2015 they moved back from %SYS.GSET to %GSIZE, and the new %GSIZE dosen't function the same.

They also confirmed that they didn't bother to document the changed because they thought that nobdy is using it' since it was supposed to be an internal function.

If you really want to make use of the "answered" feature you should allow the author of the question to mark a specific comment as "the right answer".

In this case - there is only one answer with a "chain" of comments.

So - I have no way to mark the specific comment that really answers the question.

Think about it.
