2. How to Execute SQR programs

Execution of SQR from command window 1. By invoking the sqrw.exe directly.

2. By creating report shortcuts using sqrw.exe. Put the following command (change it as per your settings) into the Target box of the property sheet of sqrw.exe. P:\psoft8\HR88ORA\bin\sqr\ORA\BINW\sqrw.exe C:\Pravat\ELTPTrngJuly2006\inbound.sqr sysadm/sysadm@HR88T844 -oc:\temp\sqr.log -fc:\TEMP\ -iC:\Pravat\ELTPTrngJuly2006\;P:\Psoft8\HR88ORA\sqr\ -ZIFP:\psoft8\HR88ORA\sqr\pssqr.ini

3. Create and Execute basic SQR Reports

Simple Report

C:\Pravat\ELTP Trng J uly 2006\Report1.SQR

DECLARE-LAYOUT SQR maps its line and column positions on the page by using a grid determined by the LINE-HEIGHT and CHAR-WIDTH arguments. That is, SQR calculates the number of columns per row by dividing the LINE-WIDTH by the CHAR-WIDTH and calculates the number of lines by dividing the PAGE-DEPTH by the LINE-HEIGHT DECLARE-REPORT Issue the DECLARE-REPORT in the SETUP section. Page-size

Break Report A break is a change in the value of a column or variable. Records with the same value for example, records with the same value for statelogically belong to a group. When a break occurs, a new group begins. Break Report is used to:Add white space to reports. Avoid printing redundant data. Perform conditional processing on variables that change. Print subtotals. Skipping lines between groups

skiplines=n Multiple Breaks (Nested Break) When you have multiple breaks, you must arrange them in a hierarchy by using the LEVEL key word. This argument numbers breaks by level and specifies that the columns are printed in order of increasing break levels on-break level=1 on-break level=2

Page Breaks and Calculating Subtotals and Totals

C:\Pravat\ ELTPTrngJ uly2006\Break1.SQR

If a page break occurs within a group, you may want to reprint headings and the value of the break column at the top of the new page. To control the printing of the value, use PRINT=CHANGE/TOP-PAGE. With this qualifier, the value of the ON-BREAK column is printed when it changes and after every page break. In this example, the value of state is printed not only when it changes, but whenever the report starts a new page.

Setting Break Procedures with BEFORE and AFTER Call of procedures before and after each break on a column.
begin-select emplid (,1) on-break before=empl_name after=empl_count Understanding the Order of Events

You can define a hierarchy of break columns by using the LEVEL qualifier of ONBREAK. When a break occurs at one level (say LEVEL 1), it also forces breaks on variables with higher LEVEL (say LEVEL 2) qualifiers. The following select paragraph has breaks on three levels: begin-select state (,1) on-break level=1 city (,7) on-break level=2 zip (,45) on-break level=3 from customers order by state, city, zip end-select after=state_tot skiplines=2 after=city_tot skiplines=1 after=zip_tot

The breaks are processed as follows: 1. When zip breaks, the city_tot procedure is run. 2. When city breaks, first the zip_tot procedure is run, then the city_tot procedure is run, and one line is skipped (SKIPLINES=1). Both city and zip are printed in the next record. 3. When state breaks, the zip_tot, city_tot, and state_tot procedures are processed in that order. One line is skipped after the city_tot procedure is run, and two lines are skipped after the state_tot procedure is run. All three columns, state, city, and zip, are printed in the next record.

Order of BEFORE AND AFTER procedure processing

1. Process BEFORE procedures. BEFORE procedures are processed in ascending order by LEVEL before the first row of the query is retrieved. If no data is selected, BEFORE procedures are not run. 2. Select the first row of data. 3. Select subsequent rows of data. Processing of the select paragraph continues. When a break occurs on any column, it also initiates breaks on columns at the same or higher levels. Events occur in the following order: a. AFTER procedures are processed in descending order from the highest level to the level of the current ON-BREAK column. b. SAVE variables are set with the value of the previous ON-BREAK column. c. BEFORE procedures are processed in ascending order from the current level to the highest level.

d. If SKIPLINES was specified, the current line position is advanced. e. The value of the new group is printed (unless PRINT=NEVER is specified). 4. Process AFTER procedures. After the select paragraph is complete, if any rows were selected, AFTER procedures are processed in descending order by LEVEL.

Saving a Value When a Break Occurs Say you want to print the employee name and the count for each employee. Printing the corresponding name of the employee will not work because employee ID value will have changed by the time the AFTER procedure is called. The solution is to save the previous break value in a string variable. To do this, use the SAVE qualifier of ON-BREAK. For example:
begin-select emplid (,1) on-break after=tot_employees save=$old_emplid

You can then print the name corresponding to the =$old_emplid in the tot_employees procedure

4. Define SQR Batch and Interface Processes (Inbound and Outbound) Batch Process:
Batch processes reads database tables and do the processing on database tables. No file interaction is there.

Interface Process:

Inbound Process (The process reads a data file and do the processing with the values it reads from the data file) Outbound Process (The process reads database tables and populated relevant data to a file)

5. Create and Execute Batch, Inbound and Outbound Interfaces.

OPEN {filename_lit|_var|_col} AS {filenum_num_lit|_var|_col} {FOR-READING|FOR-WRITING|FOR-APPEND} {RECORD=length_num_lit[:FIXED|:FIXED_NOLF|:VARY]} [STATUS=num_var]

Description Opens an operating system file for reading or writing. After a file is opened, it remains open until explicitly closed by the CLOSE command. A maximum of 256 files can be opened at one time. Parameters {filename_lit | _var | Specifies the file name. The file name can be literal, variable, or column. This _col} makes it easy to prompt for a file name at runtime.

{filenum_num_lit | Specifies a number that identifies the file in the application. All file commands _var | _col} use the file number to reference the file. File numbers can be numeric variables and literals. The number can be any positive integer less than 64,000. FOR-READING FOR-WRITING When a file is opened for reading, SQR procures all data sequentially. SQR does not allow for random access of information. When a file is opened for writing, a new file is created. If a file of the same name already exists, it can be overwritten (this depends on the operating system). When a file is opened in append mode, the current file contents are preserved. All data written is placed at the end of the file. SQR creates the file if one does not already exist. For existing files, make sure the attributes used are the same as those used when the file was created. Failure to do this can produce unpredictable results. For the VARY file type, this is the maximum size for a record. For the FIXED file type, this is the size of each record without the line terminator. For the FIXED_NOLF file type, this is the size of each record. This file type assumes that all records contained within the file are the same length. Terminate each record by a line terminator (system dependent). You can use this file type when writing or reading binary data. This file type specifies that all records contained within the file are the same length with no line terminators. When writing records, SQR pads short records with blank characters to ensure each record is the same length. This file type can be used when writing or reading binary data. This file type specifies that the records can be of varying length. Each record is terminated by a line terminator (system-dependent). Only records containing display characters (no binary data) can be used safely. When reading records, any data beyond the maximum length specified is ignored. This is the default file type. Sets the numeric variable to zero if the OPEN succeeds and to -1 if it fails. Without the STATUS argument, a failure on OPEN causes SQR to halt. By using a STATUS variable, you can control what processing should occur when a file cannot be opened.
