Reply with quote

Hi,

Currently, I got a chance to work on Natural Adabas. Currently, I am working on Windows based Natural Adabas.

I am reading the records from a work file and while compiling the program, I am facing the problem with the below mentioned error.

But, I don't know, how to declare a work file in Natural.

Can anybody help me to resolve this error.

NAT0623 Variable/field/view must be defined in DEFINE DATA.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEXT:
Variable/field/view must be defined in DEFINE DATA.
EXPL:
If a DEFINE DATA statement is present, all variables/fields to be
used must be defined in the DEFINE DATA statement in an LDA, GDA
or PDA, which are referenced with the keyword USING in the
DEFINE DATA statement.
If this error occurs for a DDM and a DEFINE DATA statement is
present, a view of the DDM (and of any database field referenced
in the program) must be defined in the DEFINE DATA statement.
ACTN:
Check program and correct error.


Thanks & Regards,
Pavan Kumar

You do not declare a work file in NATURAL. All you need is to declare is a variable (as the message says) to store the record you read from the work file.

Hi,

You can define the file in the Natural program as

01 3 #FILE1
02 #FIELD1 (FORMAT/LENGTH)
02 #FIELD2 (FORMAT/LENGTH)
02 #FIELD3 (FORMAT/LENGTH)
02 #FIELD4 (FORMAT/LENGTH)

OR

01 #FILE1 (FORMAT/LENGTH)

LENGTH is your record length

Than read the work file.

See if it is helpful to you.
