Right now Android only supports data entry (CSEntry). However, you can loop through every case in your file if you have the dictionary as an external dictionary. You can do something like this:
forcase DICT_NAME do
    // do something
endfor;
If you wanted to modify data, you could do this, though it will modify the case in the data file (as opposed to batch, which modifies the case to another output file):
forcase DICT_NAME do
    // do something
   
writecase(DICT_NAME);
endfor;

Ok! I understand. I have already used these functions on data entry programs. Thank you Dear Gregory.
