I'm using multiload to upsert data. The input file I'm using is an ascii variable length text file. The first n fields are fixed length, and the length of the last field "floats" based on the value in the field.
It seems like the only way I can define this type of file is as vartext, a single field as varchar, and then use substr to reference the individual fields in the insert statement.
This works but is a little painful from a documentation standpoint. Have you ever had this problem, or do you know a better way of approaching this?
(...) .layout lay1; .FIELD entirerecord * varchar(36); /* Actual file layout CategoryId Char(3) DepartmentId Char(3) CategoryName Char(30) */ (...) insert into category values ( substr(:entirerecord,4,3) ,substr(:entirerecord,1,3) ,substr(:entirerecord,7,30) ); (...) format vartext
