The DelExtRecords rule uses the standard search mask format, which is +offset,data offset,data [offset,data,...]+. This means that you can specify multiple offset,data pairs in your search mask. DelExtRecords deletes only those records which match all of the criteria specified - that is, for a single record line in your extract, all the search mask parameters must evaluate to true for that specific record to be deleted. DelExtRecords does not have a method that allows comparison of values in different records to select a record for deletion. All search mask values are evaluated for a single record.
For additional information on search mask formatting, review the Documaker Rules Reference guide (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17552_01/rul_book.pdf) on page 274.
You might consider using Transall (if you are licensed to do so) or another 3 ^rd^ party data manipulation tool to evaluate and modify your input data prior to processing with Documaker.

Thanks Andy Little for response.
Could you please tell me in detail about Transall as i am using a licensed to use all possible options to implement my requiremnts.
I hope it might help me as DelExtRecords is not inline to implement my requirements.
Rather than give an extensive dissertation on how Transall works, you can read Chapter 3 in the Transall documentation.1 person found this helpful

You can locate and download Transall on Oracle's eDelivery site - search for Oracle Insurance Applications on the appropriate platform and then select the Oracle Documaker Standard Edition media pack, and you'll see the Transall download therein.
Contact your Oracle Account Manager to find out if you are licensed to use Transall. Most Documaker customers are licensed to do so. If you don't know your Oracle Account Manager you can ask Oracle Support and they can find your Account Manager, just log a Service Request of RFI.
