When I run this statement from the WF client, I'm getting extra space in the output file. This seems to happen when I use a define or compute. If the field is defined as an alphanumeric, the length in the output file becomes 3 times the length that it should be. In the example below, the 'TEXT' field defined as A10 is taking 30 characters in the output file. The computed integer 'NUM' is taking up 4 characters in the output file (which is correct). If you change the PCHOLD to HOLD, then it all works fine however, I need the file to go back to the client.
TABLE FILE CAR PRINT CAR COMPUTE TEXT/A10 = '1234567890'; COMPUTE NUM/I4 = 1234; ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT ALPHA END
Also, if I run the code directly on the reporting server, nothing goes wrong. The issue only occurs if I run the code through the client portal. I've also tried running the coded deferred and downloading the output from the deferred status screen but I'm still getting the extra space.
