This data will disappear when the program is closed. However, sometimes programs need to store data. A simple way to store data values in a persistent. store is to use a flat-file database.
If the flat file is a work file or debugging file and will be written and read by JD Edwards EnterpriseOne only, the existing flat file APIs should be used. For example, if the business function is doing some sort of caching in a flat file, that flat file data does not need to be converted.
If so, you could also create a simple RPG program with an O Spec to write the records. Or if the data elements you are writing can be variable lenght (with some field delimiter) you could use SQL and just concatenate each field (with right trim function) with the delimiter, and then write (insert) the concatenated field to the flat file.Data representation in a flat file database complies with certain standards. Every column in a flat file database is restricted to a specific data type. Delimiters are included in flat files to ensure fixed-width data formatting. These reduce the overhead of locating different fields in a record. The first row in a flat file refers to the field name.On the output schema of query transform, right click create flat file and define a name and folder where it should be.
A flat-file database is a database stored in a file called a flat file. Records follow a uniform format, and there are no structures for indexing or recognizing relationships between records. The file is simple. A flat file can be a plain text file, or a binary file. Relationships can be inferred from the data in the database, but the database.Read More

Once a flat file to XML custom conversion has been configured, the combination of DataDirect XQuery and XML Converters proves particularly helpful: not only we are able to move from a proprietary flat file format to well formed XML, but we also have all the power, performance and scalability of XQuery to deal with such XML to transform it (potentially, even augment it!) into the final format.Read More

Creating a flat text file is a good way to manage a small database with basic information, such as client phone numbers. However, if you plan to house more than just a few fields in your file, it is best to use MySQL or Oracle. This article shows you how to create a basic, flat-file text database that you can use on your Windows shell. It includes the most important steps in creating the input.Read More
Each record in a flat file can be processed one record at a time and decisions can be made based on the data inside each row. Reading Fixed-Width and Flat Files. The data read from fixed-width and flat file text files can be imported into database tables or translated into other formats including Excel, delimited text and XML. GoAnywhere MFT.Read More
Writing a Resultset to a Flat File. March 22, 2007, 12:22 am. This is another example package. This one retrieves a resultset and stores it in a variable. It then uses a data flow with a custom script source to read each row of the resultset and output it as a delimited string. Why would you want to do this? Well, it enables you to treat a resultset generically from a data flow perspective.Read More
