Ah yes, I see this now!  Thank you!

I can see the ^(Package).PersonD global created in our global exploration tool, however it won't let me read it.  When I load and run the routine in the terminal and do a ZW I get data that looks like this:

person1=<OBJECT REFERENCE>[1@Test.MXD.Person]

The status indicator for the %Save shows success (1).  

Now how do I do it the other way around?  Let's say a global ^PEOPLE already exists?   How do I create a class do deal with that?  If I create a class User.People, the global ^User.PeopleD will be created when I want it to use ^PEOPLE.


Right, I've been working with the documentation and training, but I came here because I don't think it's always very clear.

In your example here you've use .%Save() to save to the Person table.  Is that the same thing as the ^PERSON global? 

Based on what I've tried, I would say it is not.  So you see I'm trying to use ObjecScript and object to update my ^PERSON global.

Does that make sense?


Thanks!  I'm familiar with SET and $PIECE.

So I have my global that exists already:

^PERSON(1) = "Mike|Male|Dev"

Can I turn that into an object? 

PERSON.1 = "Mike D"

Let me read below as to what Chris has said as well and see if that helps.


Thanks, Scott.  

What you explained about IRIS was what someone told me about Cache, lol!  I'd be interested to know other perspectives on the grouping of products and what they are, but what you've said makes sense.

I might rephrase my problem with globals: let say I've been using Cache/MUMPS for many years and all my data is in globals.  With the advent of ObjectScript and studio, I would like to take a more object oriented approach to manipulating my data.  How would I create a class to do that?



How would I create a class to do the CRUD ops on these existing globals?
