DMX_DIR Statement

DMX_DIR Statement

The DMX_DIR statement specifies the location in which PowerExchange stores data maps.
For the
value, enter one of the following types of values, depending on your operating system:
  • For an IBM i (i5/OS) system, enter the name of the library for data maps. Maximum length is 10 characters.
    The default value is STDATAMAPS.
  • For a Linux, UNIX, or Windows system, enter the path and name of the directory that contains data maps. Maximum length is 512 characters.
    The default value on Linux and UNIX is ./datamaps, and the default value on Windows is .\datamaps.
    For a Windows network path, use three leading backslashes (\\\) so that PowerExchange can parse the network path correctly.
  • For a z/OS system, enter the name of the DD statement in the JCL that points to the DATAMAPS data set. Maximum length is eight characters.
    The default value is DATAMAP.


We’d like to hear from you!
