*Phenomenon:
dbAliasproperty (DataWindow object) documentation needs fixed.
The following is what help has.  It is wrong.



Then the following statements would return the string "employee.emp_id" in ls_name and the string "emp.emp_id" in ls_alias:

string strAlias, strName
strName = dw1.Object.emp_id.dbName
strAlias = dw1.Object.emp_id.dbAlias
strName = dw1.Describe("emp_id.dbName")
strName = dw1.Describe("emp_id.dbAlias")

SHOULD BE:

string ls_Alias, ls_Name
ls_Name = dw1.Object.emp_id.dbName
ls_Name = dw1.Describe("emp_id.dbName")

ls_Alias = dw1.Object.emp_id.dbAlias
ls_Alias = dw1.Describe("emp_id.dbAlias")
