From the GDL Reference Guide I can see that this command is used only in the Properties Script. The Properties Script was used in conjunction with the old Listing functionality of ARCHICAD. The listing functionality has been deprecated a long time ago and was replaced by Interactive Schedules.
I would not bother trying to use this command or the old listing functionality, it is there in ARCHICAD pretty much only for compatibility reasons.

Thank you for the answer Laszlo Nagy.

What's the alternative then.
I have to create a database can take out the arial of the bottom surface of a rectangle it works well until dragging an angle on either side of the rectangle.
I have not managed to get the arial to be correct.

Here are the codes I set up in Master Scripts

What's wrong here.
EPS = 0.0001

WSX = (A*X1) +(1/2*B*A)*sin(schneid1-90)

database_set "Vartdal database" 

FOR i = 1 TO NUM
IF i MOD 2 # 0 then

	COMPONENT "SKRÅ S80 1-40 NR 1 STORE 20-50MM", WSX, "m2", 1, "SS8041", "001"

	endif

if i MOD 2 # 0 = 0 THEN

	COMPONENT "SKRÅ S80 1-40 NR 1 STORE 50-80MM", WSX, "m2", 1, "SS8042", "002"

	endif
	Next i

I don't know what is wrong with this script, I have not really used these component/descriptor/database-related commands of GDL in at least 10 years.
But my point is, this part of ARCHICAD has not been developed for more than 10 years. I remember I stopped using these commands when some listing-related stuff I scripted in GDL in AC6.5 stopped working in AC9. The problem is, you cannot really know what is still working and what is not, as the feature as a whole has been totally replaced by Interactive Schedules, and is there only for compatibility reasons, as far as I can tell.

Thanks again

That was not the answer I would like to hear.
But then I think that GS should update the GDL manual they have made for version 21.

I saw the opportunity to use the database when I have 38 different products in this object so how could it be nice to tell apart using item number.

I have not found anything else to separate them.

I just try to get it done.

If you have no idea how to do that, I appreciate it.

Thanks again Laszlo Nagy

What is it exactly that you are trying to achieve?
Maybe there is some other way of doing it.

If you look at the link https://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=59813
Then you want to understand what I'm looking for.

Thanks again Laszlo Nagy
