Don't automatcally load codes into fields when creating a new map.
When a new map is created, the fields that have codes associated with them automatically load as a standard rule. Although they're loaded, they don't do anything unless you set them but the field is still marked that there's a rule set on it. If t...
Ability to signal a translation error if the max number of loops is reached in a map.
You can indicate the maximum number of loops in a map, but have no way to trigger a translation error if that limit is reached. Currently if the translator hits the maximum number of loops, it does not signal an error but continues on with documen...
Sanity check on number of overall segments or size of resulting document during an import translation
Mapping errors can cause extremely large documents to be created. Currently there is no way to limit this. It should be possible to set a maximum number of segments for a document or on its resulting size and signal a translation error if that thr...
Be able to dynamically pass parameters into Stored Procedure on Output side with ODBC map
Currently the Gentran:Server for Windows 5.3.1 integration application has limitation. It has no capability to dynamically pass in parameters into stored procedure to be used on output side for Inbound map.
If you use a variable instead of an input field in the cerror statement, it compiles fine, but the map will not run. There is no output, no trans.ord file, and the dtlLog.err file contains only begin and end tags. An invalid cerror field should be...
