I have an SQL VIEW where I am selecting only part of a character
field using the SUBSTR function in a CTE, then using the derived
field in a Group By for the final select.
Part of the code is:
SubStr( COALESCE(A.UDFBVALUE,' '), 1, 10) as SCHEDB
My problem is that when I look at the file definition, the field
SCHEDB is defined as :
Data Field Buffer
Field Type Length Length
SCHEDB CHAR 40 42
What do I need to do to get this field defined as CHAR 10?
