Subj:   Inmod and Mload VARTEXT
 
From:   Tressler, Dara C.

I need some feedback from the INMOD experts on the list. I did not see any answers in the archive and I just know we are brimming with experts on this list. I have been trying to use an INMOD routine in various fashions to work with MLOAD. It seems that I can only use fixed text format as the input. Any time I try to use VARCHAR, it exits with an error about the first field (like it did not end correctly after the first transaction). I started with the routines in the documentation but there is nothing in the documentation to correspond to using that example INMOD in a Multiload.

For instance, the following does NOT work:
        .LAYOUT INPUTLAYOUT;

              .FIELD    IN_DUMMY          *    VARCHAR(3)   ;
              .FIELD    IN_GroupingID     *    VARCHAR(5)   ;
              .FIELD    IN_GroupingName   *    VARCHAR(100) ;

        .DML LABEL PGMINMOD
        IGNORE DUPLICATE INSERT ROWS;

        INSERT INTO SSA.PGMINMOD(
                 GroupingID
                ,GroupingName
               )
        VALUES (
                 :IN_GroupingID
                ,:IN_GroupingName
               );

        .IMPORT INMOD mlimodf using ( ..\\data\\source\\something.dat )
              Format VARTEXT '|'
              LAYOUT INPUTLAYOUT
              APPLY PGMINMOD;

I get the following error:
    **** 14:18:15 UTY0817 MultiLoad submitting the following request:
             BEGIN TRANSACTION;
    **** 14:18:15 UTY0817 MultiLoad submitting the following request:
             CHECKPOINT LOADING;
    **** 14:18:16 UTY4203 Attempted to access out of range input data in field 'IN_DUMMY', file
             '',record number '1'.
    **** 14:18:16 UTY1803 Import processing statistics
             .   IMPORT  1     Total thus far
             ---------------------------------------------------------
             Candidate records considered:........      1.......     1
             Apply conditions satisfied:..........      0.......     0
             Candidate records not applied:.......      0.......     0
             Candidate records rejected:..........      0.......     0
The following is the vartext data:
        Y|1|Beer & Wine Sales $
        N|2|Beer & Wine Margin %
        y|3|Cigarette Sales $
        y|4|Cigarette Margin %
        y|5|Hot Beverage Sales $
However if I change the data file to fixed format:
        .LAYOUT INPUTLAYOUT;

              .FIELD    IN_DUMMY              *    CHAR(3)   ;
              .FIELD    IN_GroupingID         *    CHAR(5)   ;
              .FIELD    IN_GroupingName       *    CHAR(100) ;

        .DML LABEL PGMINMOD
        IGNORE DUPLICATE INSERT ROWS;

        INSERT INTO SSA.PGMINMOD(
                 GroupingID
                ,GroupingName
               )
        VALUES (
                 :IN_GroupingID
                ,:IN_GroupingName
               );

        .IMPORT INMOD mlimodf using ( '..\\data\\source\\test.dat' )

              Format TEXT
              LAYOUT INPUTLAYOUT
              APPLY PGMINMOD;
This works.  Same data (except expanded with blanks).  For example:
          Y    1Beer & Wine Sales $
          N    2Beer & Wine Margin %
          y    3Cigarette Sales $
          y    4Cigarette Margin %
          y    5Hot Beverage Sales $

Can anyone tell me why this is. Also, I can't seem to pass a variable filename into the program. I always get an error (c program) when executing the open command. I have tried enclosing with single quotes, double quotes, nothing. I have tried all of those with double back slashes \ and with a single back slash in the filename. Doesn't seem to matter.

I would be very grateful for any feedback!!! We want to use vartext as our input in the future (with inmod's).


Thanks,
