Hi
I have a NDM Connect Direct step..
I need a Syntax to split the File name(Wich is greater than 72 bytes) in to two lines,
Code:
 PROCESS HOLD=NO CLASS=1 PRTY=10 SNODE=&SNODE                           
COPY FROM (SNODE                                      -                 
          DISP=SHR                                    -                 
YSOPTS=":DATATYPE=TEXT:XLATE=YES:"                    -                 
-1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8
 DSN='/required/now/online/setup/window/importan/refreshed'             
      rsafdbk.dat') -                                                   
          COMPRESS EXTENDED                           -                 
     TO  (PNODE -                                                       
          DSN='HLQ.OUTPUT.FILE' -                       
          DISP=SHR)                                                     
In the above example the input file DSN= is larger so have split the name in to 2 lines...which is the wrong syntax....
Can any one suggest the right one!

How about breaking the string into tokens, then concatenating the tokens together?

Code:

PNAME PROCESS HOLD=NO CLASS=1 PRTY=10 SNODE=&SNODE
*                                                               
   SYMBOL &NOD1=\/required\                                     
   SYMBOL &NOD2=\/now\                                         
   SYMBOL &NOD3=\/online\                                       
   SYMBOL &NOD4=\/setup\                                       
   SYMBOL &NOD5=\/window\                                       
   SYMBOL &NOD6=\/importan\                                     
   SYMBOL &NOD7=\/refreshed\                                   
   SYMBOL &NAME=\/rsafdbk.dat\                                 
   SYMBOL &FILE=&NOD1 || &NOD2 || &NOD3 || &NOD4 || -           
     &NOD5 || &NOD6 || &NOD7 || &NAME                           
*                                                               
COPY FROM (SNODE -
         DISP=SHR -
         SYSOPTS=":DATATYPE=TEXT:XLATE=YES:" -
         DSN=&FILE) -
         COMPRESS EXTENDED -
     TO  (PNODE -                                                       
          DSN='HLQ.OUTPUT.FILE' -                       
          DISP=SHR)

Thank you very much, this solved most of my problem...
But what about the single quotes...that is
Code:
DSN='/required/now/online/setup/window/importan/refreshed
rsafdbk.dat') - 


and one more thing, i have some of the DSN's in this format, how can i impplemant SYMBOL here?
Code:
DSN='\\required\now\online\setup\window\importan\refreshed
rsafdbk.dat') -

I got the soultion for splitting the file name in to two lines without using SYMBOL's.

This is the Correct SYNATX
Code:
             DSN='/required/now/online/setup/window/importan/refreshed
                      'rsafdbk.dat') - 


But Superk, still this problem is unresolved
Code:
DSN='\\required\now\online\setup\window\importan\refreshed
rsafdbk.dat') -

For someone to help, you need to post the needed info. If you post your "code" and the diagnostic info from the system, someone may have suggestions.

Hi Dick,

I was able to solve the matter.

Basically I was going wrong in one part. The code that helped me out is as under:
Code:

&OUT01=\'/datastage/data/XXXX_XXXX_XXX/Loss/src/\||           -   
        \XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXX.XXXX.REINGRP.DAT'\                 -

Here is the method for splitting paths with backslashes over multiple lines:

1) Double all the backslashes eg: \\\\Server\\folder1\\folder2\\file.txt

2) Split the line as many times as you need (anywhere except in the
middle of two backslashes)
eg:
\\\\Server\\fold
er1\\folder
2\\file.txt

3) Then:
add \' in front of the first line
add \ in front of all other lines
add '\ at the end of the last line
add \ || at the end of all previous lines
include the continuation character as normal.

eg:
\'\\\\Server\\fold\ || -
\er1\\folder\ || -
\2\\file.txt'\ -

This even works if you have spaces in your folder names, and even when the space is at the end or start of a line.

The same logic can also be used in the run task see example below:

RUNSTEP1 RUN TASK (PGM="WINNT") -
SYSOPTS= -
\'\\\\Server\\fold\ || -
\er1\\folder\ || -
\2\\file.bat'\ -
SNODE

It took me around 150 attempts to figure this out, so hopefully it will be of use for someone else. icon_biggrin.gif

KARTHIGADEVI, after almost NINE YEARS, I really doubt your post will have much impact. PLEASE look at the last post date before adding anything to any topic -- if the last post date was more than a few months ago, it is unlikely you can add anything of value to that topic.

Which is why old topics are left avaiable. But - more precisely, was the post of 05 Dec 17 the useful point?
