Using IN clauses
A remote file specification (using either the AT clause or a file synonym) is syntactically valid in the IN FILE clause of supported DML statements in remote context.
Also, you can use the following IN clause variations to refer to a remote file if you are in scattered group context:
IN GROUP groupname MEMBER IN $CURFILE IN $UPDATE
Using field names in expressions
Fields in remote context can be used in the same ways as fields in local context including the Value In phrase, which refers to a label on a For Each Record In Order statement.
