4GL_IGNORED_SUFFIX_LIST configuration variable

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

This variable is a space-delimited list of case-independent suffixes to ignore when opening Microsoft SQL Server tables or DB2 tables.

The standard syntax for MSSQL tables is


with a dot (".") as the separator. This syntax causes the filename idx1.dat to be interpreted as "the table dat owned by the user idx1." By setting this variable (which must be set in the ACUFH configuration file, and cannot be set via SET ENVIRONMENT), the Connector ignores the listed suffixes.

There can be up to 10 ignored suffixes (more than that are not kept internally, and are ignored.) The default value for this variable is dat.
