Update ( ) is one of most widely used dw control functions. It has two
arguments. The first accepts text from the screen to the Primary! buffer and the
second sets all the flags to NotModified. By default, both arguments are on
TRUE. When in the real life programming would you want to set one of its
arguments to FALSE?
Thanks,
Alex

The second flag is set to false when you need to update multiple tables.
