*ufar for multi-segmented files
« on: August 07, 2018, 10:14:27 AM »
Can *ufar be used for mult-segmented files in all PxPlus release levels?  Are there warnings, cautions or other issues that can impact the results of the utility?

*ufar should not be used with multi-segmented files or for file larger than 2GB. You should use *fixvlr instead.

*fixvlr is available in PxPlus 2016 or higher.

You could also do a KEYED LOAD instead which is often much faster especially if you can lock the file when doing it.
