Yikes there are over 100 columns in this file. Any way to accomplish
WITHOUT naming almost all columns?
Also I need to copy each record AS IS, without dropping any columns.
I want to drop entire records with any bad data, but other records
must retain all columns.
As I had noted in another reply, no need to name the columns. Also
using the hint about the SQL DDL creating a TABLE that prevents bad data
going in [from yet another reply], the CPYF can be used to copy the data
with ERRLVL(*NOMAX) to copy the valid rows into a TABLE created with an
/equivalent/ record format; sufficiently equivalent for whatever are the
needs, even if FMTOPT(*MAP *DROP) is required on that CPYF request.
