    Can I retrieve the "Name" part of a string enumeration in a blpackage external command?

    Chad Johnson

      I have a blp with a string enumeration containing multiple Name:Value pairs.  For the purposes of this example lets call the property ??STRING_ENUM??.

       

      This property contains the following Name:Value pairs:

      LOC_1:NYC

      LOC_2:ATL

      LOC_3:DET

       

      In the external command I can use ??STRING_ENUM?? to retrieve the value set.  How can I retrieve the "Name" portion of this particular selection in a BLP external command?

       

      Basically we want to use the "LOC_1", "LOC_2", or "LOC_3" for certain external command tasks.

       

      Possible???
