Export to Fixed Format

This export format is useful for use with the DB2 z/OS load utility; this requires the data to be in fixed format, eg. each column has a fixed width.

Options that can be specified with this format are:



Generate Control File

For Fixed Format, you can also specify that a Control File is generated. This control file contains information on the start/end position of the columns in the export file.

Include blank between columns

Specifies whether a blank is to be written between columns in the output file.
