-ReturnColumn specifies the name of a field which should be returned with the results of a database action. Synonym is -ReturnField.

If one or more -ReturnColumn tags are specified then only the named fields will be returned. If no -ReturnColumn tags are specified then all fields in the specified table will be returned.

Only one field can be named in each -ReturnColumn tag. To return multiple fields, use multiple -ReturnColumn tags.


[Inline: -ReturnColumn='Field_Name', ...]

<a href="default.lasso?-ReturnColumn=Field_Name&...">Link</a>

<form action="default.lasso" method="POST">
  <input type="hidden" name="-ReturnColumn" value="Field_Name">


Required Parameters
Field_Name Specifies the name of a field which should be returned.


To specify what fields to return from a database action:

Use the -ReturnColumn command tag. The following example specifies a -Search action in [Inline] ... [/Inline] tags. Only the First_Name field is returned in the results since a -ReturnColumn='First_Name' tag is included.

[Inline: -Search,
    <br>[Field: 'First_Name']
