As a follow-up to a previous posts about EXTOL Flat File Schemas,
we are reviewing how we can set-up records that can happen multiple
times and can have child records.

Defining EXTOL Schema Record Fragments
In the example above, there is a single record fragment with
multiple record formats. This means that this grouping records
will be repeated multiple times.
This scenario would be ideal where we have a header record, address records(s), detail record and summary record.
Defining constraints for EXTOL Schema Record Fragment
To allow the schema record fragment to occur multiple times,
we will 'CLICK' on the 'Constraints' tab and choose the Unbounded box.
