TRD0LENU contains the macros used to define the messages, and the comments that are used by Teradata to produce the message documentation. The comments begin with the characters "*." (for message definitions in other languages the lines beginning with the *. characters serve no purpose and may be removed). The TRDXXMHD and TRDXXMSG macros are used to define the messages. TRDXXMHD appears only once as the start of the file, before any TRDXMGEN macros. It generates a header that describes the content of the file. The relevant syntax is:

TRDXXMHD CLI,LANG=xx[,COUNTRY=(yy<,OPTIONAL>)]

where:

Syntax Element Definition.
CLI Required start of the message prefix.
xx Two-character Language-id (in uppercase EBCDIC)
yy Optional two-character Country-id (in uppercase EBCDIC).
OPTIONAL Optional second COUNTRY value if the Country-id is the default country for this language.For example, the distributed TRD0LENU specifies LANG=EN, COUNTRY=(US,OPTIONAL), thus indicating that the United States is the default country for English.

An application that requests either Language-id of EN alone, or both a Language-id of EN and a Country-id of US can use TRD0LENU.
