CLOSE ALL Also Closes Procedure Files

ID: Q106625

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 2.0, 2.5, 2.5a, and 2.5b
  • Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, versions 2.5, 2.5a, and 2.5b


Page L3-293 in the "Language Reference" does not state that the CLOSE ALL command will also close a procedure file that has been opened with a SET PROCEDURE TO <procedure file> command.


CLOSE PROCEDURE or SET PROCEDURE TO (with no filename) are the documented methods of closing a procedure file. However, using the CLOSE ALL command will close a procedure file as well.

Before issuing a CLOSE ALL command, store the value of the SET PROCEDURE TO command to a memory variable. To reopen the procedure file, issue a SET PROCEDURE TO &<variable name> command. For example:

   SET PROCEDURE TO &setproc
