This question is in relation to Flat File schemas and dictionaries:
Is it possible to use Composites in Fixed-Length records? I tried to, but I haven’t been able to make it work. It seems like composites are really geared towards delimited files.
Here’s my problem: I have several records that partially share the same structure. For example, I have 3 different records of 100 characters each. The layout for the first 50 characters is exactly the same for all 3 records. The layout for the last 50 characters differs from record to record. So I wanted to create a composite that defines the layout for the first 50 characters so I can use that composite in each of the 3 record definitions.
Is this (or something similar) possible?
