I have to generate a bteq report. I have a column which is Varchar(4000) which I have to print out in a report of width 120.
The column is getting truncated if the length is exceeding 120.
Currently I have worked around this problem by using case staements like below:
(Case when character_length(field) < 120 then field else substr(field,1,120) end), (Case when Character_length(field) < 120 then ' ' else substr(field,121,120) end), (Case when Character_length(field) < 240 then ' ' when substr(field,241,120) end)
and so on.
But I have to do this for many reports and it is turning out to be very tedious. Is there a better way to achieve the desired result of automatically wrapping around the text of the column to the next line?
