FGDELIM—Fetch Generic Delimiter

This parameter identifies the character to denote the end of the high order part of the key used in the FG (Fetch Generic) command.

The delivered default value for FGDELIM is an asterisk (*), for example, FG,table-name,key*. We recommend that programmers use the key length override function in the tableBASE command area as this executes faster, is less error prone and allows an asterisk to be part of the key.

This option applies to this region’s users, regardless of which TSR they access.

This option can be specified for all tableBASE interfaces except the VTS interface.

If this option is changed for the tableBASE/CICS interface and you have the tablesONLINE/CICS product, then the value must be consistent with that specified for tablesONLINE/CICS. Please see the tablesONLINE/CICS section of the tableBASE Installation Guide for more details.
