Invalid Data Other Than Keys

Restriction: This topic applies only when a Database Connectors license has been installed via the Micro Focus License Management System.

You have the option to convert illegal data, other than keys, into legal values by setting the configuration variable 4GL_ILLEGAL_DATA to Converted. When this is set, the Database Connectors interface converts data the same way it does for keys.

4GL_ILLEGAL_DATA can also be set to Null to indicate that illegal COBOL data other than keys should be converted to null. This is the default behavior.
