Does NODETAIL have a counterpart? I have a sort sum getting unpacked to displayable data, the outfil has headers, sections and trailers. I want to create a secondary oulfil with just the outrec data. Do I need to create a duplicate outrec layout or is there a directive to supress everything except the detail.

Thanks

I doubt it....
I've done what you are doing and I just duplicated the detail info and skipped the header stuff for the second output.....

You mean like the hypothetical NOHT? icon_smile.gif

No, sorry. That wouldn't really make much sense in terms of syntax. You get the detail records by default, so specifying NODETAIL makes sense. But you have to specify HEADERx and TRAILERx to get header and trailer records, so NOT specifying them is equivalent to NOHT. I guess you're looking for something that relates two OUTFIL statements like INCLUDE and SAVE do:

Code:

  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT1,HEADER1=(...),TRAILER1=(...),
     BUILD=(...)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT2,NOHT


So NOHT would take the BUILD from the previous OUTFIL without the H/T.
But unlike SAVE which writes any record not written by all other OUTFILs, NOHT would not be that straightforward - e.g., for multiple OUTFILs with different BUILD operands, which one would the OUTFIL with NOHT use?

At any rate, there's no keyword for that currently and I doubt I'll add one in the future given that you're the first one to ever ask for it and a few seconds with an editor can give you what you need (a copy of just the BUILD operand).

Sorry.

(Probably more than you wanted to know, but I thought some people might be interested in the thought processes involved in whether we consider a new function for DFSORT.)

Not really, but an interesting insight into the process......Thanks....

Thanks for the confirmation. Since the parms are usually kept in library members i was just trying to avoid duplicating build statements. Just have to notate that any changes have to be done in 2 spots.

IIRC, both output descriptions should reside in the same member, making it easy to keep both sysouts equal. At least, that's how I've always seen it done......
