The CONSIDER command identifies a definition as the current definition. This enables you to add a description, value name format, formula, program, model, permission, or property to the definition with an LD, VNF, EQ, PROGRAM, MODEL, PERMIT, or PROPERTY command.
The name of a definition in the current workspace or in an attached workspace.
When you use an LD, VNF, EQ, PROGRAM, MODEL, or PERMIT command to add a component to the current definition, any existing value for that component is discarded and replaced by the new value you specify. For the PROPERTY command, the value is replaced only when you specify a new value for an existing property name. Definitions can have more than one property.
