Hi Kate
The SQL Create Table command allows you to create a file in another directory and it is documented.

Subject: mkdbfile: create file in another account

Does anyone know anything about using mkdbfile (from UV bin) to create a file in an account other than the current user account?
A colleague told me about it, but it does not seem to be documented, and does not seem to work on my UV 10.0.17 system on Windows 2000, as it does on his UV on Windows something.
I tried, according to his instructions:
VOC mkdbfile
0001: V
0002: mkdbfile
0003: E
0004: FG
Then, from TCL: mkdbfile C:\BeaconUV\DevelData\XXINV\KKINV 30 1 4 20 50 80 1068
C:\BeaconUV\DevelData\XXINV\KKINV is pathname of file to create
30 is file type
1 is modulo
4 is separation
20 is hash type
50 is max load
80 is split load
1096 is large record size
This gave error message: invalid filetype specified
I feel very nervous about using something that is not documented, so presumably may not be reliably supported.
Anyone know anything, please?
Cheers,  Kate
