First, this is a question probably better suited to midrange-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Having said that, can you explain the point of the char(10) in the
statement. The select seems to be building a string, but I'm not sure where
the char(10) comes into play. What are you trying to do?

Subject: [MI400] AS400 script problem with char(10)


I'm trying to run this statement in AS400 and I keep getting an error,
specific with the char(10). Does anyone know what I need to change the
char(10) to work?

   'while [ "$tryexport" = "true" ]; do',char(10),
   '  eval ${SIEBEL_HOME}/bin/dataexp /u &3 /p &4 /c &5 /d &2 /f
${DATA}/'||NAME||'.dat /i ${DATA}/'||NAME||'.inp /q 1000 /l
${DATA}/'||NAME||'_exp.log >> nul',char(10),
   '  validate $? '||NAME,char(10),
   '  if [ "$tryexport" = "false" ]; then',char(10),
   '     tryexport=true',char(10),
   '     break',char(10),
   '  fi',char(10)||

Your assistance is highly appreciated!
