I’m creating a file using pub.flatFile.convertToString. It is a fixed-length record file and everything is created fine except for the record delimiter. I’d like to use a CRLF (hex’0D0A’) as the record separator, but when I follow the instructions in the Flat File Schema Developer’s Guide, version 6.1, I only get a CR (0x0D).
On page 82 of that guide, in the Description for the record variable in delimiters, it says: “If you want to specify the two-character carriage return line feed (CRLF) characters, specify \r\n”.
I’m running IS 6.1 with SP1 & SP2 on a Windows machine and wondering if there is a Windows setting that is maybe translating the \r\n into a CR, or if the convertToString service just doesn’t work as advertised.
Does anyone have any experience with this problem?
Thanks for any ideas,
