Specifies the work area name or number for a table from which the value must be retrieved.
The alias of the work area as a string.
If there is no active database file in the work area, DBF() returns a NULL_STRING.
By default, this function operates on the currently selected work area.
It can be made to operate on an unselected work area by specifying
it within an aliased expression or by calling the overload that accepts a workarea
parameter (a workarea number or alias ).
