Syntax Rules and Guidelines for DBMOVER Statements

Syntax Rules and Guidelines for DBMOVER Statements

You must follow syntax rules and guidelines when you include statements in the DBMOVER configuration file.
Use the following rules and guidelines for statements in the DBMOVER configuration file:
  • Start every statement on a new line.
  • If a statement or parameter has more than one option, include them in parentheses and separate them by a comma (,) or a space. For example:
  • You can span statements across lines but specify only one parameter on each line. For example:
  • If you need to include a space in a value such as a Windows path, enclose the complete parameter value in double quotation marks. For example:
    "aaa bbbb\cccc"
    Use straight quotes ("). Do not use curly quotes (“).
  • Begin comment statements with /*. PowerExchange does not parse comment statements. For example:
    /* this is a comment
    You can include comment statements between DBMOVER statements but not between parameters of a single, multiline DBMOVER statement.
  • If you need to specify a Windows network path, use three leading backslashes (\\\) so that PowerExchange can parse the network path correctly.
