Gdg's with different record lengths

Postby mahesh77 » Sun Aug 30, 2009 12:24 pm

hey group,

in a gdg in the first step can we create a record length of 100 and in the second step a record length of 200, is it possible?

Why not try it yourself and see what happens.

To be honest, it would probably take less time than posting here :D

If (when you try this) there are any questions/problems, post what you tried and the question/problem and someone will be able to clarify.
Hope this helps,
