This facility allows you to include message files in the details that are to be exported to a LANSA system on a PC.

Name

The name of the message file as it is 'known' to the IBM i. The program checks that this message file exists in the library list.

The LANSA system message file, DC@M01, may not be exported using this export facility. You must use the export system definitions option within PCMAINT to move the LANSA message file DC@M01 to your PC environment.

Library

This is set to *LIBL. This indicates that the library list is used to locate the message file to check the file exists and when the export is executed to locate the message file data.

Language

The language identifier entry fields are shown only if the current partition is multilingual. The entered language must be valid for the current partition. The entered language should be the language associated with that specific message file.

Message file Internal Name

The internal name entry fields are shown only if the current partition is multilingual. The message file name as it is used in LANSA applications should be entered here. The program does NOT check the validity of this name, so care should be taken to avoid spelling errors.

Example for an export to the PC in a multilingual partition:

 

  Name        Library   Lang    Int. Name  

  USERMSG1    *LIBL     ENG     USERMSG1 (English)   

  USERMSG1ITL *LIBL     ITL     USERMSG1 (Italian)  

 

In this example,

USERMSG1 will be exported as USERMSG1, the messages being associated with the English language.

USERMSG1ITL will be exported as USERMSG1, the messages being associated with the Italian language.
