FILENAME_WILDCARD configuration variable

Use this variable to define wildcards for multi-company data source names (DSNs). For example, a configuration file entry like this:


tells Micro Focus XDBC to substitute 01 for $$ and 02 for ** whenever the wildcard characters $$ and ** are encountered in a configuration file, a list.txt file, or on the mfdbcutil command line.

Wildcards can be any character except an equal sign (=), colon (:), semi-colon (;), alphabetic characters A to Z, and numerals 0 to 9. These are reserved characters.

Separate a wildcard from its substitution character by an equal sign. Separate multiple wildcards from one another by a semi-colon.
