RPG won't accept a period in a database file name. How do I get around that?
Posted on 2007-07-23
The shop I am now working for has their database file naming standards as AA.BBBBxx. In any version of RPG source, it won't let you use a period to define the file specs. Is there anyway to do something like an override or rename in-line in the source so you only have to issue file overrides once before compile, and not every time it is executed? That would be a pain and cause a lot of extra CL I'm trying to avoid.
