Review/Delete Objects Already in the List

When the option to 'Review/Delete Objects Already in the List' is chosen from the Work with Export List Menu a screen similar to the following example is used to manipulate the export list:

 

 DC@P620010       Review/Delete Objects in List                        

                                                                       

                                           Position to TYPE . . . _____

The screen displays details of all objects currently defined in the export list.

A displayed export list may not fit on one screen. This is indicated by a '+' sign in the lower right of the screen. In such cases use the roll up and roll down keys to scroll backwards and forwards through the displayed export list.

The list of objects is displayed in object type sequence. You may use the Position to TYPE‚Ķ to position the display of objects to a page containing  the start of the requested object type. The value entered for type may be the type as shown in the object list or an abbreviation (FLD, FIL, PF, LOG, LF, PROC, FUNC, FUN, SV, SYS, MTXT, MLT, TMP, LST, HTML, COMPONENT, COMP, XSL, OTH, B, T). T will position the display to the top of the list and B to the bottom.

Drop From List

Enter Y' beside the object to be deleted and press enter. The object is dropped and the revised list is re-displayed.

Target Library

The Target Library of any LANSA file definition or non-LANSA physical file can be altered by over-typing and pressing enter. The new name entered must be a valid library name or else a 'substitution value'.

If a 'substitution value' is used, the importer can nominate the library to be used as the target library during the import run. Substitution values are described in more detail in a later section of this chapter.

Comp Form (Compiled Form)

This option indicates that the file, process or function is to be exported in 'compiled' or 'ready to use' form. If this option is taken, the file, process or function will be usable as soon as it has been imported into the target system.

If this option is not taken, the file, process or function will have to be 'made operational' (for files) or 'compiled' (for processes and functions) on the target system after it has been imported.

For Web XSL style sheets, this option reflects the value entered in option Publish on import' in the 'Adding Web XSL Style Sheets to the List' screen.

This column cannot be altered when it contains an 'L', which indicates that individual logical views have been selected for the file.

The compiled form associated with any LANSA file definition, process or function may be altered by over-typing and pressing Enter.

The Comp Form is available for some of Visual LANSA types in a RDMLX partition.

Copy Data

This option, associated with any LANSA file definition or non-LANSA physical file, can be altered by over-typing and pressing Enter.

A LANSA file used with this option, will cause the data in the file to be exported as well and it will replace any data already in the file on a target machine. If this option is not used, data already in the file on a target machine will be left intact (after undergoing any necessary conversion to match the new file layout).

A non-LANSA physical file used with this option, will cause the data in the file to be exported as well. However, it is the your responsibility to convert or replace data in any existing version of the file on the target system. This can usually be achieved by executing AS/400 or CPF commands before and/or after the import run on the target machine. This facility is described in Define IBM i Command to Execute.

Show Long Name

You can show the long name for an object in the list by placing the cursor on it and pressing F22. Refer to Long Names for more details.
