Try this with different search words/phrases.

Do not expect to find a ready-to-use example. You can find various examples on reading by RBA from ESDS file, then you MUST apply your own mind to find out: how to adjust the found samples to your particular task?

BTW:
A significant portion of this forum's members have learned and investigated all those options and tricks via reading the manuals printed on paper!
Neither Google Search, nor Internet itself, nor electronic documents did exist at that time. Nevertheless, we all were able to learn software development much faster, and much better than nowadays "experts"!
