FIXFORMAT (fix a dynamic file)

Top  Previous  Next

 

FIXFORMAT( file )

file

The label of a FILE structure, which must be a reference variable.

FIXFORMAT fixes a dynamic file so that it can be used like any other file.

If you pass a file that was not created using NEW(file), FIXFORMAT posts the following error codes that can be trapped by the ERRORCODE function:

 

Errorcode

Equate

Reason

80

NoDriverSupport

File passed that was not created with NEW(file)

47

InvalidFileErr

Structure is invalid

 

If Error code 47 is posted, the FILEERRORCODE statement can be used to return extended information. See the ErrorCode 47 Extended information topic for more information.
