Can we use OUTREC & BUILD interchangeably ?

Hi,

Can we use BUILD & OUTREC interchangeably with OUTFIL IFTHEN?

Please let me know if my understanding is wrong.

Thanks.

Thanks.

So did you answer your own question or do you still need clarification?

Hi,

The below statement from v1.3 programmer's guide caused me the confusion :!:

The BUILD parameter has been added. BUILD can be used as an alias for FIELDS in an INREC or OUTREC statement and as an alias for OUTREC in an OUTFIL statement.


Thanks.

Yes, but OUTREC cannot replace BUILD when used with an IFTHEN statement.
