When a FASTExport is run against a table with a char(30) address attribute, the (presumed) spaces at the end of the field are not written to the field in the FastEx-output file.
I have been assured that the file used to load this data had a fixed length format with spaces padding each field to reach a common length of 30.
When the postion function is used to identify the first occurrence of consecutive spaces (2 of 'em), a value of zero is returned, suggesting that the position function is not recognizing consecutive spaces.
Any thoughts how to force the FastEx to build the field in the out-file with the padded spaces at the end.
(Currently, the field in the out-file has a VARCHAR quality to it, no spaces at the end.)
Please dock my account for a virtual cold one this Friday afternoon.
