... { ASSIGNING <fs> [CASTING] } 
  | { REFERENCE INTO dref }.


With the ASSIGNING addition, the inserted or existing row is assigned to a field symbol <fs> and with the REFERENCE INTO addition, a reference to the inserted or existing row is set in a reference variable.

The syntax and meaning are the same as when specifying the output behavior in the READ TABLE statement and the same restrictions apply regarding the modification of key fields for primary and secondary table keys.
