Displaying the data

To display the data, expand the Output Result To listbox and click Display. This option causes the macro runtime to display the data inside a Query Results dialog.

The Hold on output dialog checkbox controls whether the macro runtime immediately goes on to process the next macro action after displaying the Query Results dialog: In either case, the Query Results dialog remains open until the end user closes it (by clicking either Close or else Close and Continue).
