Table Conversion


Can the Table Conversion UBE be used to add records to an existing JDE table or can you only create new tables?

Problem: I have a flat file that contains records I want to add to the F3411 file. Do I need to first create a new table with these records and then write another UBE to add to the F3411 or can I use the Table conversion UBE to add the records directly to the F3411?

Thank you,

As long as you don't check the "clear output tables" box in your Table
Options, it should leave existing records alone.

HI Kathy,

Yes, Table conversion can add records to an existing One World table.
No problem to add records to F4311. Of course, just make sure that you
didn't select the 'Clear output table option'

And don't forget that you can use ER in TCs to perform checks during the

The table conversion can add records to a table that already contains data.
