Error description

  • Example code in the ClearQuest API Command Reference help for
    the GetInstalledMasters method results in an error.
    
    The code example:
    
    set sessionObj = GetSession
    Dim dbSets, masterDBs
    set dbSets = sessionObj.GetInstalledMasters (dbSets, masterDBs)
    For Each db in dbSets
      ? ...
