Insert a child segment

Post by lenovo » Sun Jan 31, 2010 5:42 pm

I need to insert a child segment in IMS fileaid edit mode. But the problem is there is no existing child segment for any of the parent segment in the whole database. In a normal scenario we used to type RA(repeat all) in front of any parent segment and it will create a new parent and child segment.

I tried to search the forum but not been able to find the solution.

When you're pointing to parent-segment, INSERT "child segment name" at command-line should work...
