I think so.  <g>  Paul already responded, so I'll just reiterate that we
*know* (but absolutely dislike) that CPYF has the behavior of returning
results for (TxSuf LIKE 'MI%') when specifying INCREL((TxSuf *eq &Var5)) 
and
&Var5 is a 5-byte alpha with a value of 'MI   '.  In my data, the 
following
will be returned:

  TXSUF
  -----
  MI
  MIDET
  MIFLN
  MISAG

The question becomes, how do I code CPYF INCREL so that it only returns an
EQUAL hit?
