Subj:   Continuations in FastLoad
 
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

I am running FastLoad from MVS. Certain fields in my input record are 40 bytes long, and I want to tell FastLoad to make them null if they contain low-values. Unfortunately, it seems that the only way to do this is to code the define statement like this:

DEFINE ...
     ,IN_STR_ADR_LN_1             (CHAR(40),NULLIF='00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000'XC)

... which of course is more than 80 bytes. I have therefore put the control cards in a variable-length data set! This works, but our job scheduler would prefer 80-byte records. Is there any way to continue these constants from one record to the next?

Thanks, wgr
