ITXA - GET multiple codelist columns at once

In Sterling Integrator, we are currently able to pull multiple columns from a code list entry in one SELECT statement, as below:


In Design Studio, the equivalent logic to obtain just the SenderCode would be like below:

= GET("SPE", "-TE+ -C getCodeListItemByReceiverCode -D '" + #9804 + "' -B DSV_STD_EXCEED_RP_CUSTOMER_cl -K 0")

We would need two more GET calls to get the TEXT1 (column 4) and TEXT2 (column 5) values. If there is a requirement for multiple columns, and it is needed e.g for multiple ReceiverCode values, then this will result in a large number of GET requests being made, which we are concerned will have a performance impact

Functionality should be added so that a single GET request that can pull multiple columns.

What is your industry? Travel & Transportation
How will this idea be used?

This will be used to avoid repeated GET calls being made in the same map when one could be used
