Data types of M3 PWB fields

The M3 PWB fields used in the @COL/@WCOL lines are defined by using symbolic names. These symbolic names contain both data type, offset and length information. The data types are supported:
Data type Description
CHAR Text field
FLOAT A 4-byte floating point field.
LONG A 4-byte signed integer field that ranges from -2147483648 to 2147483647.
SHORT A 2-byte signed integer field that ranges from -32768 to 32767.

For each statement in the parameter file, one or more data structures are available. Only fields within these structures can be addressed. An M3 PWB field is specified in the parameter file by writing the data structure name and the field name separated by a dot.
