Creating a Filter

By default, GenFormat allows all supported DMSII data sets and records to be replicated. You can create filters to limit the records that can be replicated. To create a filter, you must compile a tailored support library.

The GenFormat parameter file can contain any number of filters. The only predefined filter in the GenFormat parameter file is DISCARDALL, which discards every record. To create a filter using GenFormat, type the filter into the GenFormat parameter file using the syntax for declaring filters. See FILTER Syntax.
