Please don't ask anyone on the forum for a copy of this product's documentation, because nobody will provide it, as it is licensed material.

If you don't post a question or a problem, what response would work for you?

We have some people who are very good, but even they will not be able to read your mind. . .

We use '@' to define a starting and ending of a field.
Can anyone explain more specific use of it.

I think for constant fields, we need to define only starting @.
And for data fields, we use it at both ends.

how does it know the difference between a constant field and a data field?
also, how does it know the length of a constant?

Hello,

You really need to talk with whoever supports this on your system.

Many "screen painters" use some character to indicate start of a field and another to terminate the field. If there are 2 start characters on a line, they signify 2 fields - one immediately following the other with an attribute byte between them. Many organizations customize the install to use different characters than the defaults.

If you do not have the manual(s) and your organization is licensed to use the product, they should be available from GT Software support.

@dbzTHEdinosauer : We don't give any field name to those constant fields. We define field name and length only for data fields. So only data fields variables are shown in symbolic map.

@dick : I don't have any manual but i am trying to get one. I was expecting if i can learn from experience of someone.

You are expecting too much!
a forum is not a manual reading service, is for once in a while questions for which You find difficult to find a reply.

also if Your organization is licensed for the product, you should expect to have the manuals available.
( from Your organization, not begging for them on a forum )

also remember that some software companies have very strict copyright rules,
about posting or linking their manuals

Definitely get the manual from GT. You (or someone) may need to register for support, but then what you need is probably there to download. I don't have a GT account, so i don't know the specifics.

Yours is the first time this product has been mentioned here (IIRC) so there might not be the experienced user(s) you seek.
