i am facing some problem while reading the decompressed flat file generated through the ADADCU utility.
the flat file has some values of multivalue field.
the length of the multivalue fiedl in the DDM is A78. while reading this flat file in NATURAL program, the very first occurance value of the multi value field is read correctly. the other occureances of fields are assigned to the other columns.
following is the strucure of the DDM.
1 AE ORDER-NBR A 8 F D
1 AF ITEM-NBR A 16 N D
M 1 BB COMMENTS A 78 N
1 AY LAST-UPD-PGM-ID A 8 N
1 AZ LAST-UPD-DATE-TIME T 12 N
1 BA LAST-UPD-USER-ID A 8 N
the multivalue field in DDM is
the value of this multi value field is.
Testing of comments1
Testing of comments2
testing of comments3.
these three occurences are there in the flat file. but while reading the flat file, i can read the first occurance. but the other two occureances are assinged to other fields(LAST-UPD-PGM-ID,LAST-UPD-DATE-TIME and LAST-UPD-USER-ID) in the DDM.
I am using the following structure variable in my NAtural program.
2 DATA A253
R 2 DATA /* BEGIN REDEFINE: DATA
3 ORDER-NBR A8
3 ITEM-NBR A16
3 COMMENTS A79
3 LAST-UPD-PGM-ID A8
3 LAST-UPD-DATE-TIME T
3 LAST-UPD-USER-ID A8
so can you please guide me how to resolve this problem.
