FILESET

The FILESET command sets the paging attributes of a specified fileunit.

Syntax

FILESET fileunit attrib-arg1 exp1 [attrib-argN expN ...]

where attrib-arg is one of the following:

BMARGIN
LINENUM
LSIZE
ORIGIN
PAGENUM
PAGEPRG
PAGESIZE
PAGING
PAUSEATPAGEEND
TABEXPAND
TMARGIN

Arguments

fileunit

A fileunit number that is assigned to a file opened previously using a FILEOPEN statement or by an OUTFILE statement. You can set attributes only for an open file. An attribute argument specifies the file characteristic to change. The attribute must be appropriate for the fileunit specified; otherwise, Oracle OLAP returns an error. You can set several attributes in one FILESET statement by listing the attribute name and its new value in pairs.

BMARGIN

Specifies the number of blank lines that make up the bottom margin.

LINENUM

Specifies the current line number. Resets after each page break when PAGING is on; otherwise, keeps incrementing.

LSIZE

Specifies the maximum line length for text output files, or the record length for binary input files.

ORIGIN

Specifies the type of system on which the file was created. The default value of the ORIGIN attribute reflects the system you are currently working on, so you must set ORIGIN when the file originated on a different system. The setting of ORIGIN affects how data reading statements interpret the files. For example, data reading statements use this information to decide whether bytes of binary data need to be reversed, and so forth. Table 9-8, "Values for ORIGIN Clause of FILESET" will help you make the right choice. When your system is not listed, try using PC or HP as the value of ORIGIN. When one value does not work, the other one should.

Table 9-8 Values for ORIGIN Clause of FILESET

Value Hardware or Operating System

PAGENUM

Specifies the current page number.

PAGEPRG

Specifies the OLAP DML program that produces page titles and headings when output is paged.

PAGESIZE

Specifies the number of lines on each page.

PAGING

Specifies if the output is formatted in pages. This is equivalent to setting the PAGING option to YES.

PAUSEATPAGEEND

Specifies if Oracle OLAP should pause after each page.

TABEXPAND

Specifies if tab characters should be expanded. When TABEXPAND is zero, tab characters are not expanded. A value greater than 0 indicates the distance, in bytes, between tab stops. The default value of TABEXPAND is 8.

TMARGIN

Specifies the number of blank lines that make up the top margin.

exp

An expression that contains the new value for the attribute being set. The data type of the expression must be the same as the data type of the attribute.

Examples

Example 9-131 Setting Paging for a Report

When you are sending output to a report in a disk file, you might set the following attributes to indicate that the report is organized in pages and that the first page is 1.

DEFINE fil.unit INTEGER
fil.unit = FILEOPEN('REPORT' WRITE)
FILESET fil.unit PAGING YES PAGENUM 1
