3.19.4 Elect whether or not to Make Logical File Accessible

If the physical file whose definition is being loaded has logical files based on it, then a pop up window similar to this example will be presented for each and every logical file encountered:

This panel allows you to specify whether or not access to the logical file from LANSA RDML programs is required.

Enter YES to specify that access to the logical file from RDML programs is required.

Enter NO to indicate that access to the logical file is not required at this time.

Please read the notes on this panel and follow the guidelines whenever possible. By following these guidelines you will ensure optimal system performance.

Also note that by electing to not make a logical file accessible, you are in no way committing yourself. Access to a logical file can be set up at any time later by simply (re)loading the file definition again and electing to make the logical file accessible.
