Hi,

ve be reading through several manuals, searching the forum & the IB support site but feel im going round in circles in what im trying to achieve.

Im looking to create an sql tables on a specific server & within a specified database.

Id be REALLY grateful if anyone could give me an idea as to what I should be looking to do. A really basic procedure (i.e loading up some car info) would be great as I could pull it apart. hope im not asking to much but ive nearly pulled out all my hair now Smiler

thanks very muchly

As far as I can tell, what you're trying to do is not a normal WebFOCUS process, but it can be done, as long as the create table privilege is set up for the user id in control - be it the logged in user id or a hard-coded data-access userid.

Here is code that will replicate the WebFOCUS hierarchical database CAR to multiple MS SQL Server tables - one table per segment.

-SET &ECHO = 'ON';

SET HOLDFORMAT = ALPHA
SET HOLDLIST   = PRINTONLY

-*-- Extract data --------------------------------------------------------------
TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
COMPUTE SQL/A200 = 'INSERT INTO dbo.SQLCAR_ORIGIN (COUNTRY) VALUES (' ||
'''' || COUNTRY || '''' ||
')';

BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
ON TABLE HOLD AS SORIGIN
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
COMPUTE SQL/A200 = 'INSERT INTO dbo.SQLCAR_COMP (COUNTRY, CAR) VALUES (' ||
''''   || COUNTRY || '''' ||
', ''' || CAR || '''' ||
')';

BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
ON TABLE HOLD AS SCOMP
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
COMPUTE SQL/A200 = 'INSERT INTO dbo.SQLCAR_CARREC (COUNTRY, CAR, MODEL) VALUES (' ||
''''   || COUNTRY || '''' ||
', ''' || CAR || '''' ||
', ''' || MODEL || '''' ||
')';

BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
BY CAR NOPRINT
ON TABLE HOLD AS SCARREC
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
COMPUTE SQL/A200 = 'INSERT INTO dbo.SQLCAR_WARANT (COUNTRY, CAR, WARRANTY) VALUES (' ||
''''   || COUNTRY || '''' ||
', ''' || CAR || '''' ||
', ''' || WARRANTY || '''' ||
')';

BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
BY CAR NOPRINT
ON TABLE HOLD AS SWARANT
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
COMPUTE SQL/A200 = 'INSERT INTO dbo.SQLCAR_EQUIP (COUNTRY, CAR, STANDARD) VALUES (' ||
''''   || COUNTRY || '''' ||

')';

BY COUNTRY NOPRINT
BY CAR NOPRINT
ON TABLE HOLD AS SEQUIP
END
-RUN

I didn't create any keys or secondary indexes. As well, you could use Dialogue Manager to further automate the column names and definitions.

This a report that runs against the SQL tables and against the FOCUS DB:

SET TRACEON = SQLAGGR//CLIENT

-*-- Disable the trace stamp (Date/Time etc) ---------------
SET TRACESTAMP = OFF

-*-- Set trace line wrapping - # of characters -------------
SET TRACEWRAP = 78

-*-- Activate SQL tracing ----------------------------------
SET TRACEUSER = ON
-RUN

I, alas, no longer have use for a fine tooth comb, so I hope someone else has, just to verify this code.

The FURminator may be a good idea.

Below is the code we use to create a MSSQL table, then I use dialogue manager to branch around the create to use the fex as the load job from here on out. I have to make four passes at the data because in my flat file each store type is a separate field for each record and I want a separate record for each store type:
[CODE
]-* File create_gmdisplay_table.fex
-SET &ECHO=ALL;
SET ASNAMES = ON
-* Truncate the convenience display_data. This is faster than deleting the rows.
ENGINE SQLMSS SET DEFAULT_CONNECTION Missouri
-RUN

SQL SQLMSS
-*-GOTO SKIP_CREATE
CREATE TABLE DS4WMaster.IMPORTER.gm_display_data
(
CV_DISP_PER CHAR(2) NOT NULL,

As you've already seen, this can be done via WebFocus, and there is another tool that was specifically created for this purpose - Data Migrator. It is a separate product so cost and licensing could make using WebFocus the better option for you.

Good Luck.

Thanks for your response too Jessica.

Ive so far used the example Francis kindly provided.

Was feeling great when I got a test sample of 100 records (only 1 x a16 field) into a table. Then I tried increasing this number & it started crashing the agent.

So from being really happy...im hitting the buffers again.

I had read some things about migration. However, dont think I will be able to wangle any funds from the company at the moment.
