1, 2, 3, 4

number of the DBW application window where you want to start the utility.

The default is the lowest numbered application window available.

The default is the database control AMP, which is normally AMP 0.

Note: The -v options must be lower case.

Usage Notes  

When a DBW application window is not specified, or the specified window is not available, the utility starts in the first available DBW application window.

Select a vproc number based on the particular utility being run. For example, if the utility you are starting provides information on a specific AMP or vproc, be sure to start the utility on that AMP or vproc.

Example  

The following example starts the Vproc Manager utility in window 3.
