We are trying to Multiload a variable length file into 3 separate tables, details as follows:
File contains one Header, length 22 bytes, starting with char(2) Header ID of '10'.
Detail records can be one of 2 types, some rows are length 564, and others are 599. (1st 2 characters indicate which type).
One Trailer, length 10, starting with char(2) Trailer ID '90'.
We are trying to load the data into 3 separate tables - one Trailer table, and 2 Detail tables, and ignore the Header.
Should we be able to do this in Multiload (without adding a filler to make the rows the same length)? We have all our layouts etc. specified correctly in the script, but are getting the following error:
14:09:36 UTY4203 Attempted to access out of range input data in field 'DATARECORD2', file '/account/load/AC1090',record number '3'.
(The file used in the above case had only 1 detail record in it - it appear to have correctly ignored the Header (record 1), and correctly determined what to do with the detail record (record 2 - which began with 'BO'), but the trailer (record 3) is causing difficulty. Why didn't it ignore it if the first 2 characters weren't 'BO'??
Our .Import/Apply statements in this case are shown below:
.Import Infile @[email protected] From 2 /* Ignore Header */ Layout Account Format Text Apply Ins_Account Where DataRecord1 = 'AC'; .Import Infile @[email protected] From 2 /* Ignore Header */ Layout Bonus Format Text Apply Ins_Bonus Where DataRecord1 = 'BO'; .Import Infile @[email protected] From 2 /* Ignore Header */ Layout Trailer Format Text Apply Ins_Trailer Where RecordType = '90';
DataRecord1 and RecordType are both Char(2) and after that the layouts differ.
Please can anyone help???
