hi Pete

I could not able to understand what exactly delimiter is.
I tried giving comma (,) before my first library name in my ODBC datasource.
Ex:- is below.
, library1,library2, library3
Afther this when Iam searching a file in my program it is giving me a message
that it could not able to find file in QSYS.
Anymore alteration do I need to do?

Pl. clarify

In the datasource you can specify a comma separated list of libraries. I
think semi-colons work too. At one time, it was necessary to put a
delimiter in the first position of the list (before the first library), or
only the first library would get used. I don't know if that's still
necessary, but it doesn't hurt anything, so I always just do it.
