I am trying to split a long line of code that copies lots of small files into one but I seem to have to put the statement all on one line. ie. COPY /A FILE1.TXT + /A FILE2.TXT + /A FILE3.TXT + /A FILE4.TXT + /A FILE5.TXT DESTFILE6.TXT
I can't seem to do this however:- COPY /A FILE1.TXT + /A FILE2.TXT + /A FILE3.TXT + /A FILE4.TXT + /A FILE5.TXT DESTFILE6.TXT
I get unrecognized command errors. Any suggestions as to how you split a long line ?This message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,

-*-*From my understanding, You looking something like this.
-*-*-*-*This is for PDF
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE COL/A100='[b]Hello, Good morning.[/b]'|'^'|'HELLO';
COMPUTE COL/A100='[b]Cap Cash[/b]';
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
-*-*-*-*This is for HTML
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE COL/A100='[b]]Hello, Good morning.[/b]'|'<BR>'|'HELLO';
-*COMPUTE COL/A100='[b]Cap Cash[/b]';
-*ON TABLE HOLD AS HOLD_COL_3 FORMAT ALPHA
The SYSTEM function allows you to run a system command but, unlike using the normal ! or CMD etc., it assigns the return code from the system command to a variable so that you can check it before continuing.
So, in effect, using SYSTEM waits for the system command to finish before continuing whereas using !, CMD etc. does not.
It is also easier (IMHO) to keep a long system command complete and within a single variable.
