Data Validation and Discard Files

While processing DMSII extract and update records, DATABridge validates all numeric and alpha fields. Fields that contain NULL values (data with all high-bits set) are recognized as DMSII NULLS. In this section, the following types of data validation and discard files are described:

  • Numeric data validation
  • Alpha data validation
  • Date validation
  • Special handling of key items in discard files
  • The handling of blank character data for key items in the DATABridge Client for Oracle
