Describing varchar in Easytrieve

Postby Kshitij_FM » Fri Jul 19, 2013 5:52 pm

Hello All,

I was looking for the description of variable characters in Easytrieve.
Went through the CA-Easytrieve manual, & could not find anything significant.
Came across numneric (N), alphanumeric (A), packed decimals (P), but couldn't find varchar.

Please let me know regarding the variable characters description. An example will be great. Thanks !!!!

Did you look at VARYING on the DEFINE statement in the manual?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Which release of Easytrieve are you using?

VARYING is on page 4-9 of my documentation.
Hope this helps,

Hi Dick,

I am using version 6.4 & still couldn't find the 'varying' clause.
Please let me know the version you are using.

Thanks For the Help :)

Google is your friend. Googling varying easytrieve returns 4,570 results and the very first result is a link to the Easytrieve 6.2 manual which describes VARYING.
