Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to create a permanent hold file, name "DATASOURCE" using below query. But, I do not see any hold file created, Is there anything I am missing here? Any input would be appreciated, Thank you in Advance.

APP MAP TESTING/ TEST
APP HOLDDATA TESTING
APP HOLDMETA TESTING

DEFINE FILE GGSALES
REGION/A20=REGION;
ST/A20=ST;
END
TABLE FILE GGSALES
SUM
DOLLARS AS 'Dollars'
BY REGION AS 'A1'
BY ST AS 'A2'
ON TABLE HOLD AS H1
END

DEFINE FILE GGSALES
REGION/A20=ST;
ST/A20=CITY;
END
TABLE FILE GGSALES
SUM
DOLLARS AS 'Dollars'
BY REGION AS 'A1'
BY ST AS 'A2'
ON TABLE HOLD AS H2

Are there any errors ?

The documentation states "APP MAP appname path to directory"

You have APP MAP TESTING/ TEST

I think the / is wrong. and the test should be a path to a physical location available to the server

I don't use
quote:
APP MAP TESTING/ TEST

All I use is
quote:
APP HOLDDATA TESTING
APP HOLDMETA TESTING

and it works fine in 8282m g60.

Try using just APP HOLD

  
APP HOLD BASEAPP

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM SALES
BY COUNTRY
ON TABLE HOLD AS _CARHOLD
END


That saves a .mas file and a .ftm file in the baseapp folder

Assuming that "TESTING" is a proper application, then you should remove the hold meta/data commands. This will add temp files to the directory as well, and that is never good. Do an explicit reference to the target application in your table request. That way you only get the .mas and hold file, and the .mas will have all the references to the hold file that was created.

TABLE FILE H1
PRINT DOLLARS
BY REGION
BY ST
ON TABLE HOLD AS TESTING/DATASOURCE
MORE
FILE H2
END
