[SOLVED]Facing problem with Read command in version 8204
DEFINE FILE CAR
MYMARKET/A15 = COUNTRY;
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
DST.MYMARKET
WHERE MYMARKET NE ''
ON TABLE SAVE
END
-RUN
-SET &COMMA = '';
-*for each line in the table

-REPEAT :END_MARKET_REPEAT &LINES TIMES
-* read the line in
-READ SAVE &MYMARKET.A15


-SET &LINE= &COMMA | '"' | &MYMARKET || '"';

-* write out this new object to the HTML page
-HTMLFORM BEGIN
!IBI.AMP.LINE;
-HTMLFORM END

-SET &COMMA = ',';

-*do the next loop
-:END_MARKET_REPEAT
  


This code is returning England separated by commas multiple times when running on 8204.
However, it was returning different countries as expected when we ran it on 8010 version.

Thanks

Correct syntax for -READ is -READ &variable.{format of I or A only}.

However, I would suggest changing to a HOLD and using -READFILE or/and use NOCLOSE

If it used to work and has stopped, you should probably open a case with IB Tech Support. However, the changes suggested by Tony do fix the problem.

  
SET HOLDLIST=PRINTONLY
SET ASNAME=ON
-DEFAULTH &MYMARKET='';
DEFINE FILE CAR
MYMARKET/A15 = COUNTRY;
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
BY MYMARKET
WHERE MYMARKET NE ''
ON TABLE HOLD
END
-RUN
-SET &COMMA = '';
-*for each line in the table

-REPEAT :END_MARKET_REPEAT &LINES TIMES
-* read the line in
-READFILE HOLD 

-SET &LINE= &COMMA | '"' | &MYMARKET || '"';

-* write out this new object to the HTML page
-HTMLFORM BEGIN
!IBI.AMP.LINE;
-HTMLFORM END

-SET &COMMA = ',';

-*do the next loop
-:END_MARKET_REPEAT

Forgot to point out that there should a dot before AND after the &variable being read.

Babak's technique uses -READFILE SAVE instead and it will assign the amper variable based on the fieldname used in the table request


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thanks guys, both methods worked.

Wonder why it was working with the incorrect READ syntax in 8010 version.

  
DEFINE FILE CAR
MYMARKET/A15 = COUNTRY;
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
DST.MYMARKET
WHERE MYMARKET NE ''
ON TABLE SAVE
END
-RUN
-SET &COMMA = '';
-*for each line in the table

-REPEAT :END_MARKET_REPEAT &LINES TIMES
-* read the line in
-READ SAVE NOCLOSE &MYMARKET.A15.


-SET &LINE= &COMMA | '"' | &MYMARKET || '"';

-* write out this new object to the HTML page
-HTMLFORM BEGIN
!IBI.AMP.LINE;
-HTMLFORM END

-SET &COMMA = ',';

-*do the next loop
-:END_MARKET_REPEAT
-CLOSE SAVE

Code tightening!

It's why I remind people to use documented syntax!!

You are also missing a semicolon in the line -REPEAT :END_MARKET_REPEAT &LINES TIMES

I would still recommend using -READFILE - which is newer syntax.

-DEFAULTH &LINE='', &MARKETVAR=''
DEFINE FILE CAR
MYMARKET/A15 = COUNTRY;
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
  SUM COMPUTE CNTR/I9 = LAST CNTR + 1; NOPRINT
      COMPUTE MARKETVAR/A20 = IF CNTR EQ 1 THEN '"' || MYMARKET || '"' ELSE ',"' || MYMARKET || '"';
   BY MYMARKET NOPRINT
WHERE MYMARKET NE ''
ON TABLE HOLD AS MYDATA
ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY
END
-RUN

-READFILE MYDATA
-REPEAT :Loop WHILE &IORETURN EQ 0;
-SET &LINE = &LINE || &MARKETVAR;
-READFILE MYDATA
-:Loop

-* write out this new object to the HTML page
-HTMLFORM BEGIN
!IBI.AMP.LINE;
-HTMLFORM END
