[SOLVED] Eliminating Description on MFDs

Okay, so I'm sure I've done this once before on a different version, but where can I set my system to not place the Description line in the Master File 'Synonyms' when using the WebFOCUS console. I know there was a place I could do something like 'SET DESCRIPTION OFF' but I can't recall where to put that.

Found my own answer - I needed to put SET SYNONYM=BASIC into the edasprof.prf file.

We have a WebFOCUS program that 'reads' the MFDs out of their library and it does not expect those description or remark lines to be there or it ends up garbling them on the display. The setting above resolved my issue.

There is another way of doing it. Include this line on the top of .mas.

/*NOCOLS*/
FILENAME=tablename, SUFFIX=SQLMSS , $
SEGMENT=segname, SEGTYPE=S0, $

Then WF will dynamically retrieve the column names and formats.

If you use the Data Management Console there is an option in for Dynamic columns when you create a synonym.
