What is IOTYPE in my master file?
How do I suppress it?

I am tabling data out of a FOCUS database and simply HOLDing it in a text file.
The accompanying MAS master file has an entry on the first line
FILENAME=FILE1, SUFFIX=FIX, IOTYPE=STREAM, $

How do I elimintae the IOTYPE setting?

Why do you want to remove it ?

I think it tells FOCUS how to read the file

Waz is correct, this setting helps FOCUS read FIX format HOLD type files. It is applicable to later 7.6 and 7.7 release I believe.

There are 2 values, BINARY and STREAM, for IOTYPE and it is internally generated and should not be applied manually to an MFD.

I tabled the data into a hold file (hold.ftm and hold.mas) from 7.7.03. The hold.mas has the IOTYPE parameter.

When I table that hold file from a 7.6.5 machine, it can not read the file.

Is there a setting in 7.6.5 that I am missing for 7.6.5 to recognize the IOTYPE parameter?

How did you FILEDEF file hold file ?

Did you specify LRECL and RECFM ?

See: http://www.informationbuilders.../wf_news_may2011.pdf
On pages 10-12, it tells you all about FILEDEF and IOTYPE (which ws introduced in WF 7.7).

I needed to add the "DATASET='mypath/table2.ftm'" to the mas in order to read the file.
FILENAME=table2  , SUFFIX=FIX     , IOTYPE=STREAM, $
  DATASET='mypath/table2.ftm'
  SEGMENT=table2, SEGTYPE=S0, $
    FIELDNAME=FIELDNAME, ALIAS=E01, USAGE=A100, ACTUAL=A100, $
