Message File Content

The message file is structured much the same way as other IBM® Connect:Direct® configuration files. Each record is a logical line in a text file that consists of one or more physical lines. Each record has a unique name, a message ID, and fields that make up the message text.

The message record definitions provide for symbolic substitution, which permits including actual file names or other variable information within the text to more specifically identify a problem. Symbolic variables begin with the ampersand character (&).

The format of IBM Connect:Direct message IDs is listed in the following table:



X Indicates IBM Connect:Direct
xxx is a 3-character IBM Connect:Direct component identifier
nnn is a 3-digit decimal number
I is the standard, though not required, suffix
