Buffer on a preceding load

Hi

Is it possible to do a BUFFER load on a preceding load and if so where does the BUFFER prefix go?

buffer LOAD    

     *,

     [final field]

;

buffer LOAD

     *,

     [some other field]

;

buffer LOAD

     [some fields]

Resident

     APreviousTable

;

Thanks

Oli

Re: Buffer on a preceding load

Well, perhaps you are asking this:

buffer LOAD   

     *,

     [final field]

;

buffer LOAD

     *,

     [some other field]

;

buffer LOAD

     [some fields]

Resident

     APreviousTable

;


i.e. - you should place it at the top most of all preceding loads.

Yes, it works with preceding load too. The way you showed should work fine. And if you are asking about location where it gets stored, check :

Use buffer only once at the top.

     *,

     [final field]

;

LOAD

     *,

     [some other field]

;

LOAD

     [some fields]

Resident
