Printer File keywords

 

 

Ü  SPACEA (Space After)

·         This keyword is used for spacing.

·         Spacing is used for relative positioning of the content with respect to the line already printed on the page.

·         In an externally described printer file, the paper can be spaced after a line is printed by using this keyword.

·         This keyword can be used at record level as well as field level.

·         If we use this at record level then the spacing occurs after all the fields associated with the record have been printed.

·         If we use this at field level then the spacing occurs after that field has been printed.

·         This keyword is not valid for records with specified line numbers (positions 39 through 41).

·         The format of the keyword is:

o   SPACEA(No. of lines to be spaced)

·         The spacing can range from 1 to 255.

 

 

Example

 

After the record HEADER has been printed, 2 lines are spaced

 


0000.01      A*%%**************************************************************
0000.06      A          R HEADER                    SPACEA(002)
0000.10      A                                     4
0000.11      A                                      'ORG'
0000.12      A                                    +6
0000.13      A                                      'ACCOUNT NO'
0000.14      A                                    +9
0000.15      A                                      'CCY'
0000.16      A                                   +10
0000.17      A                                      'PARTY NO'
0000.20      A*%%**************************************************************

 

 

**See Example: Implementing spacing/skipping

 

 

 

 

Ü  SPACEB (Space Before)

·         This keyword is used for spacing.

·         Spacing is used for relative positioning of the content with respect to the line already printed on the page.

·         In an externally described printer file, the paper can be spaced before a line is printed by using this keyword.

·         This keyword can be used at record level as well as field level.

·         If we use this at record level then the spacing occurs before any of the fields associated with the record have been printed.

·         If we use this at field level then the spacing occurs before that field has been printed.

·         SPACEB(01) by-default comes in printer DDS as there should be at least 1 space between two DDS record FORMAT.

·         This keyword is not valid for records with specified line numbers (positions 39 through 41).

·         The format of the keyword is:

o   SPACEB(No. of lines to be spaced)

·         The spacing can range from 1 to 255.

 

Example

 

Before printing the record format FOOTER, 3 lines are spaced.

 


0000.36      A*%%**************************************************************
0000.37      A          R FOOTER
0000.41      A                                      SPACEB(003)
0000.42      A                                    13
0000.43      A                                      'TOTAL CUSTOMER FOUND = '
0000.44      A            TOTAL          2S 0O    +0

 

**See Example: Implementing spacing/skipping

 

Ü SKIPA (Skip After)

·         This keyword is used for skipping.

·         Skipping is used for fixed format printing. Like if we know that at which line we have to print what. e.g. on any pay-cheque or demand draft or any receipt we know in well advance the line number that is to be used for printing a specific thing( branch name, address, depositor name, signature..etc)

·         If you have written something from line no. 1 to 5 and you want to skip those 5 lines, simple use SKIPA (6). Those five will be skipped and

·         This keyword is used at file level, record level or field-level.

·         The format of the keyword is:

o   SKIPA(skip-after-line-number)

·         The skipping can range from 1 to 255.

·         If you specify the keyword at the file level, you must option it with one or more indicators.

·         If we use it at file name that means that the skip operation is performed after all records in the file get printed.

·         If we use this at record level then the skipping occurs after all the fields associated with the record have been printed.

·         If we use this at field level then the skipping occurs after that field has been printed.

·         **See Example: Implementing spacing/skipping

 

 

Ü SKIPB (Skip Before)

 

·         This keyword is used for skipping.

·         Skipping is used for fixed format printing. Like if we know that at which line we have to print what. e.g. on any pay-cheque or demand draft or any receipt we know in well advance the line number that is to be used for printing a specific thing( branch name, address, depositor name, signature..etc)

·         If you have written something from line no. 1 to 5 and you want to skip those 5 lines, simple use skip (5).

·         This keyword is used at file level, record level or field-level.

·         The format of the keyword is:

o   SKIPB(skip-after-line-number)

·         The skipping can range from 1 to 255.

·         If you specify the keyword at the file level, you must option it with one or more indicators.

·         If we use it at file name that means that the skip operation is performed before any of the records in the file gets printed.

·         If we use this at record level then the skipping occurs before any of the fields associated with the record have been printed.

·         If we use this at field level then the skipping occurs before that field has been printed.

·         **See Example: Implementing spacing/skipping

*** NOTE: It is not possible to see the effect on the generated print report/spool file, these are the printer setting when printer print the document then it detects these SPACE and SKIP and print the same on the paper.

Ü COLOR (Color)

·         This keyword is used at field level.

·         It is used to highlight any field in the specified color mentioned in the parameter for COLOR keyword.

·         The printer should be capable to detecting the color that we mention, if not then the default color black is used.

·         The format of the keyword is:

 

COLOR(color-name | *RGB R-value G-value B-value |

      *CMYK C-value M-value Y-value K-value |

      *HIGHLIGHT H-value coverage)

   

       Where,

 

R-value = Red value

G-value = Green value

B-value = Blue Value

C-value = Cyan value

M-value = Magenta value

Y-value = Yellow value

K-value = Black value

H-value = Highlight value

 

 

 

 

Ü CPI (Characters Per Inch)

 

·         This keyword is used to adjust the appearance of the field in the form of density or spacing(character per inch)

·         We can adjust the spacing for a single field by specifying the keyword at that field level or multiple fields by specifying this at record level.

·         The format of the keyword is:

CPI (10|15)

Example


|...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....+....7....+....8
00010A          R REC001
00020A                                      CPI(15)
00030A            FIELD1       10       5   
00040A            FIELD2       15  0   25

 

 

 

 

 

Ü DATE (Date)

·         This printer keyword is used to display System Date on the report.

·         We can use EDTCDE(Y) to edit the date.

·         The format of the keyword is:

DATE(*SYS *YY)

 

Example

The following example shows how to specify the DATE keyword.


     A                                  1  1
     A                                      DATE
     A                                  2  1
     A                                      DATE EDTCDE(Y)
