Microfocus 4.1 and filesizes > 2Gb

Microfocus 4.1 and filesizes > 2Gb

Microfocus 4.1 and filesizes > 2Gb

(OP)
We're experiencing a problem attempting a conversion on one of the tables where the extracted flat file exceeds two Gigabytes.  It's giving a run time error of 194 and the manual says to recode your program to create more than one file - a workaround.  With later versions of Micofocus you can configure the system to use files greater than 2 Gig.

Does anyone know if it is possible to configure Microfocus 4.1 for UNIX to accept filesizes greater than 2 Gig, and if so, where and how?

Thanks in advance.
Greg

RE: Microfocus 4.1 and filesizes > 2Gb

We had the same problem but it was the OS version with the 2gb limit. As a work around we are dumping that table using two msd (copyied to do half each) and are putting it back together on the new machine befoer the msc runs.

RE: Microfocus 4.1 and filesizes > 2Gb

What I have always done for the dump/convert/load is to use compressed files.  Examples below

Email me if you have any questions:
