In a system that handles Employee information, consider the following Transaction object:
Suppose you may want to know if an employee has quit within a specific period of time.
After verifying if there is at least one matching that condition, you want to exit the For each and stop the search.
The implementation would be:
&Found = 0
For each Employee order EmployeeResignDate
Where EmployeeResignDate >= &StartDate
Where EmployeeResignDate <= &EndDate
&Found = 1
If &Found = 1
Msg('Employee found that satisfies the condition')
Msg('NO Employee satisfies the condition')
