If an application is using Move Mode for processing the parcels in the response (that is, Locate-mode is set to N and Parcel-mode-fetch is set to Y in the DBCAREA), then the application must allocate the move area and place its length in Fetch-maximum-data-length.
|If Maximum Data Length is set to...
||Then the largest parcel body is...
Whether Varying-length-fetch is set to N or Y, the length of the move area must be large enough for the largest parcel body. If Varying-length-fetch is set to Y, two more bytes are required for the preceding length field.
