V9.1E, on Windows:
I have some code that is accessing a static temp-table via buffer objects, and I found that the FORMAT attribute returns "x(8)" regardless of the "FORMAT" option specified on the temp-table's definition. Retrieving the STRING-VALUE results in a string always truncated to 8 characters. Is this a bug in V9.1E, or is there something I'm overlooking?
The thing is when you get the buffer-field handle for a temp-table it assign the format as "x(8)" so the string-value return the first 8 chars. to avoid this you can Reassign the format for the buffer field handle.
For more details see the following link:
Add RCODE-INFORMATION to your static temp-table definition.
Thanks, guys! I thought there was a trick for this--didn't know there were two.
