FIELD

One FIELD entry exists for each field in a Model 204 file. This entry specifies the physical characteristics of the field. FIELD entries are used by the File Management facility in maintaining the field definition and in sizing the file, in mapping views (including COBOL views) to Model 204 data, and by the Screen and Action Generator in generating views from records.

System attributes

ENTITY Value must be FIELD.
CREATE DATE Date the entry was created
LAST UPDATED Date the entry was last updated
UPDATED-BY Account that last updated this entry
NAME Model 204 file name concatenated with a period followed by the field name (that is, the UNQUALIFIED NAME). The field name must begin with a character and cannot exceed 70 characters (excluding the file name component). The format is:

<file_name.field_name>

(See the UNQUALIFIED NAME definition directly below.)

UNQUALIFIED NAME Name of this field without the file name prefix. This name need not be unique within the FIELD entity type. This is the same as the Model 204 field name.
AVERAGE LENGTH Specifies average number of characters in the values for this field. The value is an integer. Screen and Action Generator uses this attribute when generating a view definition from a record definition.
AVERAGE OCCURS Specifies the average number of occurrences of this field in a record. The value is an integer. Default is 1. If the value is non-zero, Access/204 View Management assumes that the field is multiply occurring. Screen and Action Generator uses this attribute when generating a view definition from a record definition.
CODED/FRV FEW VAL If the field is coded (CODED=Y) or for-each-value (FOR-EACH-VALUE Y/N=Y), this specifies that it is few valued, approximately 50 or fewer distinct values. This attribute corresponds to the Model 204 field attribute, FEW-VALUED. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is N.
CODED/FRV MANY VAL If the field is coded (CODED=Y) or FRV, this specifies that it is many valued, approximately 50 or more distinct values. Corresponds to Model 204 field attribute, MANY-VALUED. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is N.
CODED Specifies that this field is CODED. This means that each unique value is stored in the file's Table A and that a code is stored in each Table B record instead of the value. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes CODED and NON-CODED. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is the Model 204 default (not coded).
DEFERRABLE Y/N If the field is key (KEY Y/N=Y), this specifies whether or not the updates to the index for this field can be deferred. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes DEFERRABLE and NON-DEFERRABLE. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default for key fields is Model 204 default, Y.
FIELD PERCENT RATE Percentage of time a field occurs in a specific RECORD. Specified as a RECORD=VALUE pair. One record = value pair is stated for each record that the field participates in. The value is an integer from 0 to 99999. The default is 100. Used by File Management for file sizing. Refer to Field Group Definition screen for the algorithm used to compute this value.
FLOATING PT Y/N Specifies that this field is floating point. The number of bytes is stored in AVERAGE LENGTH. The value for this attribute is Y, N, or null. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attribute, FLOAT. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, N, or null.
FOR-EACH-VALUE Y/N Specifies that this field is a FOR EACH VALUE field. This means that a separate list of the unique values is maintained and available to SOUL requests. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes FRV and NON-FRV. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, N.
IMMED Number of immediate pointers per segment in the ordered index. The value is an integer between 0 and 255.

The File Management default is the Model 204 default, 1.

KEY Y/N Specifies that this field is KEY. This means that an index is maintained for the field. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes KEY and NON-KEY. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, N.
LEVEL Specifies the security level for this field. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attribute LEVEL. The value is an integer between 0 and 255, or null. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, 0.
LRESERVE Indicates the percentage of space to leave free on a leaf-page during deferred updates (FLOD) or the ordered index REORGANIZE OI. The percentage is a value between 0 and 99. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, 15.
MAX OCCURRENCES For a multiply occurring field the maximum number of occurrences expected. Used by File Management. The default is 1.
MIN OCCURRENCES For a multiply occurring field, the minimum number of occurrences expected. Used by File Management. The default is 1.
MIXED CASE Specifies if data is stored in mixed case or uppercase. The value is Y for mixed case, N for uppercase, null for uppercase. The default is null.
NR NUM SIGNIF DIGITS If the field is numeric range (NUMERIC RANGE Y/N=Y), specifies the maximum number of significant digits for this field. The value is an integer. The value is required by File Management for numeric range fields.
NRESERVE Indicates the percentage of space to leave free on a node-page during deferred updates (FLOD) or the ordered index REORGANIZE OI. The percentage is a value between 0 and 99. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, 15.
ORDERED Y/N Specifies that this field is an ORDERED field. The value is Y, N, or null
NUMERIC RANGE Y/N Specifies that this field is a NUMERIC RANGE field. The value is Y, N, or null. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes NUMERIC RANGE and NON-RANGE. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, N.
NUMBER UNIQUE VALUES If the field is KEY, NUMERIC RANGE, FRV, or CODED, specifies the estimated number of distinct values for this field in the file. The value is an integer. File Management requires a value for key, numeric range, frv, and coded fields.
PHYSICAL FORMAT Specifies whether the PHYSICAL PICTURE is fixed or variable. The values are: compact, V = VARIABLE, F = FIXED, Null for invisible fields.They are used to determine the search strategy in generated code.
PHYSICAL PICTURE

Describes the physical picture of the FIELD. This is used by Access/204 View Management for generating the Access/204 field attribute SYSTEM PICTURE. It is used by PC/204 to determine domain characteristics. The specification is the same as for Access/204 SYSTEM PICTURE. The default is X(20), which is the same as the Access/204 SYSTEM PICTURE default. The Access/204 limit for string length is 231 characters. For other products and facilities, the limit is 255 characters. The specifications follow:

Strings

  • X(n) - string, length n

Numeric

  • 9(n) - numeric integer, length n
  • 9(n).9(m) - decimal number with embedded decimal point
  • 9(n)V9(m) - decimal number with implied decimal point
  • A prefix of '+' can be used to denote a positive numeric. Access/204 View Management converts the S to a minus (-) when it downloads the information to Access/204.
  • A prefix of '-' can be used to denote a negative numeric. For example: '+9(n)'.
  • A prefix of 'S' can be used to denote a signed numeric.
  • Null is the required value for invisible fields.

The following date formats are allowed (Y=year, M=month, d=day):

  • YYYYMMDD. For example: 19850625, June 25, 1985.
  • YYMMDD. For example: 850625, June 25, 1985.
  • MMDDYYYY. For example: 06251985, June 25, 1985.
PHYSICAL PICTURE(continued)
  • YYYYDDD. For example: 1985176, June 25, 1985.
  • YYDDD. For example: 85176, June 25, 1985.

Picture

  • Value of P, indicating graphic data to be processed by PICTURE/205.
PREALLOCATED PAD If the field is preallocated, this specifies the character to be used to pad the field when a value is actually shorter than the preallocated length. The value is X'yy' or null. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attribute PAD. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, X'00'.
SIGNIFICANT DIGITS

Specifies what digits are significantly stored in the PHYSICAL PICTURE. The values are:

A -- All digits are significant and stored. Essentially a fixed length field matching the PHYSICAL PICTURE.

T -- Trailing zeroes after the decimal point are stored, Leading zeroes are not stored

L-- Leading zeroes are significant, Trailing zeroes after the decimal point are not stored.

N -- No leading zeroes or trailing zeroes after the decimal point are stored. This is the default value

null -- Is interpreted as having a value of 'N'. These values are used to determine the search strategy in logically generated code.

SPLITPCT Indicates the percentage of data to leave on the earlier node during the split of a node in an immediate (as opposed to deferred) update. The percentage is a value between 1 and 100. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, 50.
STRING Y/N Specifies whether a field is to be stored in character or numeric format. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes STRING and BINARY. The value is Y for character data, N or null for binary, or floating point (numeric data). The File Management default is the Model 204 default, Y.
TREETYPE Indicates whether an ordered index field is based on CHARACTER field or NUMERIC comparisons. The value is Y, N, or null. The default depends upon the values specified for STRING Y/N. If STRING Y/N is Y, the default is C. If STRING Y/N is N, the default is N. These values can be changed by the administrator.
UPDATE-IN-PLACE Y/N Specifies whether or not the occurrence of a field is to be updated in place. If not, updating an occurrence makes the occurrence the last occurrence of the field. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes, UPDATE IN PLACE and UPDATE AT END. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, Y.
UNIQUE Y/N Specifies whether a given field name = value pair can occur in only one record in a file. The value is Y, N, or null. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes UNIQUE and NON-UNIQUE. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, N.
VISIBLE Y/N If a field is KEY (KEY Y/N=Y), specifies whether or not a field is visible. Invisible fields have entries only in the indexes. Thus, they can be used as part of a search criteria but cannot be printed. Corresponds to the Model 204 field attributes, VISIBLE and INVISIBLE. The value is Y, N, or null. The File Management default is the Model 204 default, Y, for key fields.
WEIGHTING FACTOR Indicates the percentage of values in the file to be added immediately as opposed to those added in deferred updates (for example, the values added in a FLOD routine). This factor is used by File Management sizing to estimate the relative significance of LRESERVE and SPLITPCT. The value is an integer between 0 and 100. The default is 50.

NAME Model 204 name of the procedure (or the Procedure Access Control Table entry name). The name is composed of the Model 204 file name concatenated with a period followed by the procedure name (that is, the UNQUALIFIED NAME). The name must begin with a character and cannot exceed 70 characters (excluding the file name component). The format is:

<file_name. procedure_name>

(See the UNQUALIFIED NAME definition below.)

UNQUALIFIED NAME Name of this field without the file name prefix. This name need not be unique within the PROCEDURE entity type. This is the same as the Model 204 procedure name.
PCLASS If this entry describes a procedure, this attribute specifies the procedure class to which the procedure belongs. The value is an integer between 1 and 255. (PCLASS is a user-controlled attribute.) If this entry describes a Procedure Access Control Table entry, it specifies the procedure class to which users in the UCLASS user class have ACCESS privileges.

OBJECT UPDATE DATE Date of the last update of the procedure in the procedure file. The date is stored in julian date format, YYDDD. This attribute is updated by all facilities that store PROCEDURE entries.
OBJECT UPDATE TIME Time of the last update of the procedure in the procedure file. The date is stored in HH:MM:SS format. This attribute is updated by all facilities that store PROCEDURE entries.
ACTION TYPE Types of actions (procedures) that can be generated by Screen and Action Generator:
DRIVER Implies the ability to query, display, add, update (modify), or delete data from a view by including other procedures that perform these actions. The driver specifies the types of actions allowed by the procedure it includes in the ACTION SUPPORTED attribute.
QUERY Implies the ability to query or add to the data in the view.
DISPLAY Implies the ability to display, update (modify), or delete the data in the view. For procedures generated by Screen and Action Generator, the facility supplies the ACTION TYPE value (the type of action that was generated).
ACTION SUPPORTED This attribute occurs in the dictionary only if Workshop/204 is installed. The value occurs only when ACTION TYPE=DRIVER. The value indicates what can be done with this driver. The value can be:

QUERY
DISPLAY
ADD
UPDATE

DELETE

There can be multiple values if more than one type of action is supported. The system supplies the values for procedures created by Screen and Action Generator.

file_name.record_name

(See the UNQUALIFIED NAME definition below.)

UNQUALIFIED NAME Name of this record without the file name prefix. This name need not be unique within the RECORD entity type. This is the same as the Model 204 record name.
AVERAGE LENGTH Average length of the RECORD.
PERCENT INCREASE Percentage of expected increase for records of this type. The value is an integer. Used by File Management in file sizing.
NUMBER OF RECORDS Expected number of records of this type for the file. The value is an integer. Used by File Management in file sizing.
PERCENT RATE Percentage of the records in the file that are of this type. The value is an integer. Used by File Management to weight this record length.
RECTYPE ID

Used to indicate the field and values that can uniquely identify records of this type. For example, in a personnel file the field REC distinguishes record types. The field=value pair REC=E marks EMPLOYEE records and the field=value pair REC=D marks EMPLOYEE DEPENDENTS records. The value is specified as a field=value pair. A redundant relationship is maintained also for documentation and impact analysis. The format is FIELDNAME=VALUE.
