Empty Line in DME file

597 Views Last edit Oct 13, 2017 at 08:54 PM 4 rev

Hi,

There's a need to have 4 empty lines/rows in DME output file and I was able to achieve this by creating a segment group (@ level 2) which had 2 blank segments in that group (@level 3 and 4 respectively) where the option "Empty segment for generating CR/LF" has been selected.

Now the issue is - 2 empty lines are being displayed in between the line items, which is not desirable.

Correct / Desired file output format:

Blank Line 1

Blank Line 2

Blank Line 3

Blank Line 4

Payment Line 1 (this line would contain the amount, payment method etc.)

Information Line 1 (this contains the corresponding information like text of payment line 1) Payment Line 2

Information Line 2

Payment Line 3

Information Line 3

However, the file being output is as follows (with the highlighted blank lines below being an issue) wherein we do not want that to be displayed

Blank Line 1

Blank Line 2

Blank Line 3

Blank Line 4

Payment Line 1

Information Line 1

Blank Line

Blank Line

Payment Line 2

Information Line 2

Blank Line

Blank Line

Payment Line 3

Information Line 3

Blank Line

Blank Line

Sort / Key Fields - Following is the configuration of Sort/Key Fields. (Level 1 is the root menu)

Sequence Structure-Sort Field Level

1 FPAYH-LAUFD 1

2 FPAYH-LAUFD 3

3 FPAYH-LAUFD 4

4 FPAYH-DOC1R 6

5 FPAYP-DOC2R 6

6 FPAYP-DOC2R 7

How to achieve the requirement of having 4 blank rows at the start of file with no other blank lines in between.

Please suggest if I'm missing something.

Thanks - Somu C.
