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



fixed

But as you point out the IBM outfile formats (all of them:
QADSPJRN/2/3/4/5 ) have a 100 byte JOESD field. So you cannot use it "as
is" unless your file is 100 bytes or less. This version of the file is
supplied as a template only.

Your ONLY option (if you insist on using DSPJRN) is to use the command
specifying the required ENTDTALEN values to create YOUR version of the
file, with the required length of JOESD. Look at the help text to decide
which output format you need. Some have a fixed length for JOESD, and for
some it is variable length.

I need this to work in production and I cant ensure that DSPJRN will
build a single *outfile record.

What does this mean?

Yes that is true - but I would like to use the IBM format. The
QSYS/QADSPJRN field JOESD is only 100 bytes long.

I need the format, but don't want to DSPJRN to get the format.

I need this to work in production and I cant ensure that DSPJRN will build
a single *outfile record.

Joel

The ENTDTALEN parameter on DSPJRN specifies how big you want JOESD to be.

It's all there in the online help behind the command :)

I am trying to do this. Where can I get a file format of the DSPJRN
*OUTFILE format?

I tried QSYS/QADSPJRN but that has a field JOESD of only 100 bytes long.

Is there a file to join to with a longer JOESD field?

Or do I have to create my own.

Thanks

Hi Joel -

Do you know how to have SQL move the entire record format (all columns:
packed, zoned, alpha) into a single field JOESD? (which is where the
journal system stores my CUST record)

How about creating a file with just one field that is as long as the
longest record format that you want to process, then use CPYF with
FMTOPT(*NOCHK) to load it. Then I think you could use SQL against
that file to load your DSPJRN look-alike. No actual journal
processing required.
