Subj:   System Environment Variable Mload (Infile) ?
 
From:   Mohammed, Barkat

Hello

I want to use system environment variables in my multiload script in

import infile Option.

import infile /export/home/user1/file1.dat


if the location of the file "file1.dat" changes I have to edit and change the path from multiload script, instead I want the script to get the path from the system environment variable.

I tried setting up variable on my unix box ; exported the variable and used in mload script but that doesn't work

DATA_DIR=/export/home/user1; export DATA_DIR

import infile $DATA_DIR/file.dat


this doesn't work

I also tried to use accept command to us Environment variable but doesn't work

.accept FROM ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE '$DATA_DIR' ;

or

.accept FROM ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE $DATA_DIR ;


Thanks

Barkat
