I have a file with hex '40' spaces in a field OrderQty defined to DDS
as pack numeric.
I am using SQL to read the file and SQL croaks when it reads these
nasty invalid records.
Is it possible to filter out these records in SQL?
For example something like:
SELECT * from Datafile where left(OrderQty,1) = *blanks
Here is the SQL error:
Data mapping error on member SQLTEMP1.
A data mapping error occurred on field OrderQty in
1 -- There is data in a decimal field that is not valid.
