•Database functions are directly related to SQL‑based operations and data access. They greatly simplify application development by reducing the number of calls needed to accomplish a wide variety of SQL functions. See “Database Functions.”
•Utility functions enable you to get information, map error codes, and set date and time options during the execution of a Synergy application. See “Utility Functions.”
Every SQL Connection function generates a value and can be used any place a literal can be used in a Synergy program. Except where noted, SQL Connection functions work with both traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET.
