Reply with quote

Hi,

I have to extract a query result table to a text or csv file with a specified record length given by a record layout. I can extract data but the record length is gretaer than the required output record length because of some extra spaces or nulls in between fields.

I have a fixed record format for the ouput file. How do I specify the exact length in AQT so that it matches the target record layout and that should not conatin any extra characters in between.

Thanks

Use a Programming langualge that allowes you to "exact length in AQT so that it matches the target record layout and that should not conatin any extra characters in between".

Hello,

Are you creating the "output" file on the PC? If i recall correctly, AQT is pc-based with the ability to access database tables on multiple platforms (win-based, unix, and mainframe).

What you may have is the full size of the data - including trailing blanks.

Where are the extra characters? Please post what you are getting and what you'd prefer. Also, please post the attributes of the output file.
