Hi All

Working on data migrator console. Is it possible to create a delimited file synonym for a csv file with header & trailer rows I am only interested in the data in the file. Example below

Bonus question : Is it possible to create synonym for a csv file with multiple sections

I think yes to both questions, because you can build hierarchies of differing record types with SEGMENTs PARENT relationships. For example, try creating these files in baseapp and run the fex. Note the PCOMMA=ON needs to be invoked for the COM to work.

 

htcom.txt

"HEADER","MI","Michigan"

"DETAIL","Detroit"

"DETAIL","Troy"

"DETAIL","Kalamazoo"

"TRAILER","The trailer record"

 

 

htcom.mas

FILE=HTCOM, SUFFIX=COM, DATASET='baseapp/htcom.txt', $

SEGNAME=HEADER, SEGTYPE=S1, $

FIELDNAME=RECTYPE, ALIAS=HEADER, USAGE=A7, ACTUAL=A7, $

FIELDNAME=ST, ALIAS=ST, USAGE=A4, ACTUAL=A4, $

FIELDNAME=STNAME, ALIAS=STNAME, USAGE=A35, ACTUAL=A35, $

SEGNAME=DETAIL, SEGTYPE=S1, PARENT=HEADER, $

FIELDNAME=RECTYPE, ALIAS=DETAIL, USAGE=A7, ACTUAL=A7, $

FIELDNAME=CITY, ALIAS=CITY, USAGE=A25, ACTUAL=A25, $

SEGNAME=TRAILER, SEGTYPE=S1, PARENT=HEADER, $

FIELDNAME=RECTYPE, ALIAS=TRAILER, USAGE=A7, ACTUAL=A7, $

FIELDNAME=MESSAGE, ALIAS=MESSAGE, USAGE=A50, ACTUAL=A50, $

 

 

htcom.fex

SET ALL=ON

SET PCOMMA=ON

TABLE FILE HTCOM

PRINT ST

STNAME

CITY

MESSAGE

END
