vutil function that allows you to create a new, empty file is accessed on the
Create File tab. The create file function is equivalent to performing an OPEN OUTPUT on a file in COBOL.
When you use the
Create File tab of the
Vision File Utility interface, there are a few points to keep in mind:
- If you specify the name of an existing file when you invoke this function, that file will be overwritten.
- By default,
vutil creates the new file in Vision Version 6 format. If you want another format, use the
Vision file format check box and drop-down list to make an alternate selection.
- You can use the
Define Key Information push button to open a special interface used to create, delete, and define keys for the new file. Use the buttons at the
top of the screen to create or delete keys. Double-click in any key field to change its value.
