str = GetHolObservanceFromTable()
The returned string contains all the observance attributes of the current holiday, separated by a front-slash /. Usually, the main reason for calling this function is to determine if the current holiday is a full nationwide holiday (in which case the observance is an empty string).
The macro code below checks if any of the holidays of the holidays set nHolSetID is a full nationwide holiday.
sResult = ''
bOneFullHolidayAtLeast = false
// initialize the holidays table
// find the first holiday, if any, of set nHolSetID
while FindNextHolidayOnDate(n_TokenDate, nHolSetID)
sObservance = GetHolObservanceFromTable()
if sObservance = '' // we have one full nationwide holiday
bOneFullHolidayAtLeast = true
break // no need to look any further

In such cases, use the ignore observance option to have a specific holiday be treated as a holiday with no observance, in all respects, except for holidays synchronization.
