As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi all,

I am reading dynamically from a flat file which has LRECL of 134, when I am using -READ FIL1 &PREV1 &PREV2 &PREV3 then to continue to read in the same order I need the continuation charactor which I am really not aware of.

Please advice.

Thanks

You could also -READ the entire line, then split it with SUBSTR or EDIT.

Forgot to say that the end comma on line one and the start comma on line two (after the - ) are important.
