Syntax for Objects and Table Entries

Objects and table entries use different syntaxes.

For objects


For table entries


Note -

In this case, the brackets are part of the syntax.

Indexed names can specify more than one column-value pair. If so, the operation applies only to the entries that match all the column-value pairs. The more column-value pairs you provide, the more stringent the search.

For example:

Table 10-11 Object and Table Entry--Examples




Table entry 


Two-value table entry 


Columns use a special version of indexed names. Because you can only work on columns with the nistbladm command, see "The nistbladm Command" for more information.
