RE: make cust file look like a journal record - format



fixed

Joel,
Because a journal image is a copy of the original record
from the journaled file or table plus journal info at the
"front", you could to a classic sql join.

The trick will be getting the correct key info >if< you
care about matching the journal data columns to the file/table columns.

On the other hand, mabe your current journal images contain the data
you need >if< you have the "before" image ?

Subject: make cust file look like a journal record - format

I have pgmA which reads cust journal changes and sends them off for an ETL app.

I would also like to be able to send the entire cust file using the same pgmA with no changes.

How can I make the cust record format look just like a journal record (the format that DSPJRN creates).

For example:

Cust file format:

CustName 30
CustAddr 30
CustCity 20
-----
Total 80



I want this to look like a DSPJRN record so I can use the same pgmA to load up all CUST records for an initial load.

Desired format:

Field Field
Text Name Type Length
Length of entry JOENTL S 5 ---------------------|
Sequence number JOSEQN S 10 |
Journal Code JOCODE A 1 |
Entry Type JOENTT A 2 |
Date of entry: Job date f JODATE A 6 |
Time of entry: hour/minut JOTIME S 6 |---------- journal header fields
Name of Job JOJOB A 10 |
Name of User JOUSER A 10 |
Number of Job JONBR S 6 |
Name of Program JOPGM A 10 |
Name of Object JOOBJ A 10 ----------------------|
.
.
.
Entry Specific Data - Var JOESD A 80 <--------------------------------- I want my CUST data here!!




Most of the journal fields can empty - but I want my CUST data to be in JOESD. Can SQL or OPNQRYF do this?

I think I need to take fields JOENTL thru JOOBJ and initialize those. Then take all CUST fields CUST.* and string them together (alpha, packed, zoned) into the one JOESD field.

Is this possible without using an HLL?

Thanks!
