Write

Since configuring write options is possible for both attributes and recordset fields, select either the Attribute Properties tab or the Recordset Fields tab to view the Write box. These options allow you to erase to the end of an attribute or or configure support for scrollable text.


Erase to end of attribute
Select this check box to concatenate as many spaces as necessary to make the length of the input match the length of the attribute. For IBM terminal models, an Erase to end of field operation is performed if the attribute's location coincides with a terminal field. If the location does not coincide with a terminal field, Host Integrator uses spaces.
 
Note: This option appears on the Attribute tab only.

Scrollable text
Select this check box to add support for writing more characters to an attribute than the host would normally allow. This means that the length validation of the attribute or recordset field is bypassed by Host Integrator.
Advanced
For more extensive substitution options, click Advanced. For example, you can prepend or append a constant string to a data input. The resulting string will be checked for length and type restrictions.
