Before a call to DBCHCL for the Connect function, applications set Varying-length-request either to Y or N, with the following results:

When Varying-length-request is set to... Then...
Y the Logon-length field is ignored and the Logon-pointer must point to the two-byte area containing the length of the logon string, which is followed by the actual logon string.
N the application must supply the length information separately from the logon string, in Logon-length.

For more information, see Varying-length-request.
